Save Energy and Money.
Air that leaks through your home’s outer walls, windows, doors, and other openings − it can waste a lot of energy and increases your utility costs. A well-sealed home can make a positive difference with your utility bills, saving your family money.
Sealing leaks and adding insulation can improve the overall comfort of your home and help to fix many of these common problems:
- Reduced noise from outside
- Reduce pollen, dust, and insects entering your home
- Better humidity control
Thermal insulation in air conditioning systems is primarily used to reduce heat gain or heat loss from piping. Other factors include preventing the icing of water vapor and condensation on a cold surface. Condensation can cause damage to surrounding areas such as carpet or other furnature. Therefore, the insulation must also act as a vapor barrier, but it can help to reduce the noise level, and absorb the vibration generated by the system.
• Low thermal conductivity.
• Reasonable strength
• Resistance to Fungi such as one that is based on ASTM G21 standard.
• Excellent resistance to ozone
• Excellent resistance to UV.
• Does not deteriorate or rot over time.
• Pipe insulation materials can be manufactured from rubber, wool, glass fibers or cork. The polyurethane or P.U. is a synthetic material that is commonly used these days due to its low thermal conductivity and other good properties.
Most homes don’t have proper insulation and can have significant air leaks. If you added up all the leaks, holes and gaps in a typical home, it could be the equivalent of having a window open every day of the year! In our desert heat, that can easily add up to hundreds of dollars on your electric bill. Contact us for an evaluation so we can see how we can save you money on your system.
