You can purchase the most energy efficient windows available. You can find a window company with windows carrying the highest energy star rating. You can choose the thickest double layered product made. If you do all that and have any company insulate and install them, you have just wasted a lot of time and money. Insulation is everything when it comes to windows, doors and any seal to the outside of your home. It makes the difference in fit, comfort, durability, energy efficiency, beauty and property value. If it is not done right the first time, you will not enjoy any of the benefits and savings that you should expect from such an investment in your home.
Specialized Insulation Contractors will come to your home or office or business and complete an energy audit to determine where you may be loosing energy and how to correct the problem areas. You may even qualify for a free home energy audit. The audit will show where leaks are, where seals are beginning to fail and where heating and cooling is escaping from the building. Great-then what? Well, they will then give you options for correcting the problem. It may be as simple as air sealing some areas or adding a bit more insulation. If the issues are more advanced, it may require new insulation or new windows may be recommended. Do not panic if this is the case because there is financing available and energy incentives and rebate programs that can help get you operating efficiently and saving money along with energy.
For most people, insulation is insulation and it works once it is put in place. So what is the benefit of Specialized Insulation Contractors and what does that even mean?
