Any homeowner in Guelph will want their home to have a consistent room temperature. During the first few years of a freshly-constructed home, property insulation is at its peak. You won’t be experiencing too much outside temperature permeation. Unfortunately, the barriers can weaken, and your insulation can perform poorly over time. In doing so, you’ll crank up your thermostat to repel the invading temperature.
However, this event is just one in the many ways your home temperature is inconsistent. Here are other reasons.
Air Drafts in Different Areas
Walk through every room in your house. If you feel your room temperature is consistent in one room, compare this temperature to the next one. Get close to walls and corners and try to feel for any drastic temperature changes. Most often, this result is due to air drafts penetrating your home in different areas. The best way to address this is to use caulk to fill in the gaps.
Poor or Weak Insulation
New Guelph homes have the advantage of high-quality home insulation. Most homes use either traditional foam or spray polyurethane foam. However, both of these insulating materials can break down and become problematic over time. If you’re experiencing uneven temperatures inside your home, it’s possibly due to weakening insulation. Have professional SPF applicators or home remodelers help you remove your old materials and improve your internal property insulation.
Roofing Materials and Attics
Most asphalt shingles and clay tiles deliver exceptional insulating and roof cooling for properties. If you’re using green roofs, the cooling capability is better because of several layers of shade and topsoil protecting your property. However, metal roofs are excellent conductors of heat, but they repel UV ray absorption through acrylic elastomeric roofing.
Your attic’s insulation might be loose as well. In this light, make sure to work with remodelers and home development specialists to improve its state in no time. In doing so, you’ll prevent insulation from increasing your utility bills.
Windows and Doors
Lastly, make sure to check your windows and doors. Old-style jalousie windows guarantee the least amount of insulation for properties. Sliding or hinged double-glazed windows provide the best insulation possible. Alternatively, thicker doors with no spaces underneath are essential in improving property insulation. You might need rubber fillers or strips to ensure an airtight seal that guarantees no air drafts and outside air permeation.
Air Conditioning Unit Performance
All HVAC units have preferred room sizes that they can cool efficiently. For example, a 0.5 horsepower window-type AC unit cannot cool down a 30 square-feet room. On the other hand, a 2-horsepower unit might be overkill for a 15 square-feet room, which can spark high utility bills unnecessarily. Avoid all these issues by insulating the room and using the recommended horsepower.
An excellent and well-installed roof can solve many of your home insulation problems. Often, compromised underlayment and roofing materials are to blame for poor internal property insulation.
