How Your Home Benefits From Insulation

Insulation is the hero homeowners need and the one they deserve right now. It works tirelessly day and night to ensure our homes stay a comfortable temperature, the air we breathe remains allergen-free, and our energy usage does not blow up our pocketbooks. We may not notice it when it does its job well, but we definitely feel it when our insulation needs a little extra help.

Most of us know we need insulation to keep our homes warm in the winter, but we may not realize all the benefits that fluffy wall-filling offers us. Read on to discover how our homes benefit from insulation!

A Barrier Against the Temperature Outside

The most common notion about insulation says it keeps the warmth from the heater inside on a cold day. While this is accurate, it is also an inadequate way to explain what a home’s insulation does for the occupants inside. Insulation does far more than keep the warmth in. Insulation provides a barrier against the conditioned air inside and the undesirable temperature outside.

Imagine an ice-cold can of your favorite soda sitting on your coffee table. When you pick it up, you feel the cold of the metal as it contacts your skin. Your hand then feels chilly, while the drink inside the can feels just a little warmer than it did before. Within minutes, your soda lacks that delicious, icy chill it had when you took it out of the fridge. It is now warm and less enjoyable to drink.

Now imagine slipping a foam can cover over the can. When you pick it up, you no longer feel the cold metal, and more, your body heat does not pass through the wall of the can to warm the soda within. Minutes later, your soda still has that lovely coldness it possessed right out of the fridge.

Insulation acts as the foam can cover for your home. It prevents the air inside your home, warm or cold, from exchanging energy and temperature with the air outside. In the summer, your home will stay more consistent, cool temperature, even when the thermometer outside has risen far too high. This becomes energy savings, and financial savings, for you and your family.

Air Quality Defender

Did you know insulation does more than prevent the outside temperature from coming inside? It also helps prevent allergens and outdoor air pollutants from slipping into your home! Allergens and other matter can slip into your home through the leaks caused by insufficient or old insulation along with drafts of air.

An appropriately insulated home helps prevent these allergens from sneaking inside. You and your family can enjoy higher air quality, thanks to your insulation.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
