Your home is your shelter, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. As your home ages, you may notice drafty areas or parts of the house where your heat or air conditioning works overtime. Inconsistent temperatures and higher heating and cooling bills signal that it is time to consider an energy upfit and insulation replacement.

Prosite offers insulation services in Yakima County that can upgrade your home’s energy efficiency. This article will explain more about energy upfits and audits to help you decide if this service can help you. Read on to learn how to create a more energy-efficient home that stays comfortable year-round.

What Is An Energy Upfit?

If you have not had your insulation inspected lately, you may not even realize it is degrading. Areas with insulation, such as inside walls, attics, crawl spaces, and basements, are places you don’t see very often, and they fall into the out-of-sight, out-of-mind category. These areas, though, and their insulation significantly impact your home's energy efficiency.

Over time, insulation can wear down and become less efficient. Harsh weather conditions, moisture issues, and pests inside your walls will degrade the insulation material and make it less effective, so you will pay more to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

An energy upfit is a home insulation service that takes any old, worn-out insulation and replaces it with more efficient insulation. Contact us today at Prosite to speak with one of our insulation experts and learn more about this service.

How An Energy Audit Identifies Energy Deficiencies

Energy deficiencies in your home, such as drafts or poor insulation, are equivalent to throwing money out of the window. An energy audit is a process that determines which areas have insufficient, missing, or outdated insulation.

Using the findings from this audit, we devise a plan to reduce energy loss and help you to determine which areas to prioritize for your energy upfit. Often, something as simple as replacing attic insulation can make a significant difference in your monthly bills.

The Many Benefits Of An Energy Upfit

Outdated insulation can cause numerous problems on top of energy deficiencies. There are so many benefits to an energy upfit, including:

  • Your HVAC system will not have to work as hard, and you will see lower heating and cooling bills.Proper insulation reduces moisture problems and helps protect your home's structure from rot and water damage.
  • You will no longer need to feel drafts coming in on a windy day.
  • Insulating your crawl space or basement ensures you will have more stable temperatures.
  • Replacing old insulation often gives your home better air quality.
  • Spray foam insulation in some parts of your house can significantly reduce the chances of a pest infestation.
