The Job of Insulation
Many people believe the job of insulation is to keep things warm. This is only partially true. The real job of insulation is to stop the transfer of heat. Insulation always serves as a barrier, but this barrier works differently depending on the season. During the winter months, insulation helps you retain the warm air from your heating system by significantly slowing or stopping the heat from escaping to the cold air outside. In the summer months, the opposite is true: insulation stops the warm air from the outdoors from penetrating the cool air inside your home. Slowing the transfer of heat is the key to good insulation because of a basic law of thermodynamics: warm air will always seek out cool air. The best way to stop this transfer of heat is with the right amount and type of insulation in your home.
