Are you wasting money this season on heating bills?
If your home energy bills seem to be out of control, it might be time to have your insulation inspected by a professional. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 44% of all energy costs for the average home end up being spent solely for heating and/or cooling. The main reason for this? Critical areas of the home – the walls, attic, and floors – are inadequately insulated. Not having sufficient insulation in these areas can lead to warm or cool air escaping out of your home. If you don’t know whether these areas are insulated, if your home is more than fifteen years old, or if you are currently remodeling, now is the perfect time to call Martino for a free inspection.

Insulating your Michigan home – 3 Critical areas to Insulate
Attic insulation helps increase a home’s thermal efficiency all year round. During the cold winter months, sufficient insulation in the attic – normally in the form of rolled fiberglass, batts or blown-in insulation – keeps the warm air from rising out of the home and into the cold attic area. Because heat naturally rises, it can be difficult to keep your home warm on a cold night, but having proper attic insulation can eliminate this problem. Attic insulation also increases your home’s ability to keep cool during the warm weather months, preventing the hot air that fills the attic space from leaking downward into the rest of the home.
For the best protection from frigid Michigan winters, attic blown-in insulation is your best bet. Unlike batts or rolls, blown-in insulation (fiberglass or cellulose) offers a seamless blanket of protection across your entire attic floor, preventing any of that cold air from making its way into the rest of your home.
Walls that are properly sealed, fully insulated, and protected from moisture can improve the overall health and efficiency of your home in a variety of ways. You will have more moderated temperature control, a reduction in outside noise, and less air leakage through the walls. Walls make up the majority of the building envelope of the home, and are the largest portion of the home that faces outside air. Taking the time to properly insulate can make a world of difference.
Crawlspaces are commonly overlooked areas of the home that can allow unwanted entry of cold or hot air. This trapped air can rise upward through the floors and alter the internal temperature of the rest of the building. Properly insulating a crawlspace can keep this air from disturbing your temperature-controlled interior. Crawlspace insulation also helps to protect pipes from freezing or bursting during temperature extremes.
