According to the Building Industry Association of Lancaster County, heating and cooling account for 40 percent of the energy used in a typical house. The more this energy escapes your home, the harder your heating and cooling units have to work.
That’s why it’s important to choose the right insulation – and install the maximum amount possible – in your new home addition or remodeled room. Insulation resists heat flow and is rated by an “R-value.” Insulation with high R-values prevent heat flow better than lower R-values.
