Insulation improves performance of furnace

When we first moved into our new home, we were absolutely delighted by the big windows and gorgeous view of the lake behind it. My husband and I loved the wide open kitchen with the stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. We enjoyed the huge shower with an abundance of water pressure and smart thermostat to better handle temperature control. However, our first winter in the house was a challenge. There were cold spots in every room and drafts coming in from around every door and window. Turning up the thermostat just forced the furnace to work harder and run longer. We spent a fortune on our heating bills but the house wasn’t overly comfortable. We needed to wrap up in blankets when we watched television at night. I finally searched online, trying to figure out if the problem was the furnace, the ductwork or something else. The list of our complaints pointed at insufficient insulation in the walls and ceilings. Since our house was built less than ten years ago, this led us to believe that the contractors had been remiss in installing proper insulation levels. I called a local HVAC contractor for some advice. We certainly didn’t want to start tearing open the walls and ceilings to add insulation. The HVAC contractor suggested blown-in insulation, which can be installed without causing mess or damage. Small particles are blown into the cavities of exterior walls and ceilings and conform to plumbing pipes and tight spaces. The process was quick, reasonably priced and made immediate improvement. The house now stays cleaner, is more soundproof and far more comfortable.
