Add More Insulation and Save on Cooling Bills

Insulation in Green Cove Springs is usually thought of as a winter thing, used to help keep your home toasty and warm when winter temperatures drop. But the same principles that keep warm air inside in January can keep hot air outside in July, which means that adding insulation now makes a lot of sense. A good technician can advise you on the amount of insulation to add and where, but one thing is certain: add more insulation to your home to improve indoor air quality and save on cooling bills.

Insulation follows three principle physical principles:

  • Conduction: the process by which heat moves through solid materials.
  • Convection: the process by which heat moves through liquid or gas.
  • Radiation: the process by which heat moves through a vacuum.

Insulation is designed from materials that slow all three of those processes down. Heat moves out of your house very slowly through the insulation, retaining warm temperatures longer and ensuring that your heating system can do its job more efficiently.

But as we said above, these principles aren’t simply one-way streets. The hot air outside your home has just as difficult a time getting in through the insulation as the warm air inside your home has getting out. And if you’re filling your home with cool air instead of warm air, the insulation helps it stay cool for a good long time. The more insulation you have, the better your house can retain cool air and the less work your air conditioning system has to do to keep your home comfortable. That means lower monthly bills as well as reduced strain and a lower risk of repairs.

The best part is that the demand for adding new insulation is fairly low in the summer, which means you can perform the operation more quickly and efficiently than you might closer to the winter.

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
