Why Insulation Is Important

At this time of year, if you ask homeowners why insulation is so important, they’ll likely tell you insulation keeps heat inside. This is partially true, but not entirely true. Yes, insulation does help keep your warm air inside, but there’s a reason for this, and it is the main job of insulation: to stop the transfer of heat. Heat will always seek out cool air; this is one of the basic laws of thermodynamics. Heat will transfer, or move, in one of three ways: convection, conduction and/or radiation. The job of insulation is to significantly reduce and/or stop this movement.
