    How Does Insulation Work?
    Now that we all know that heat flows from warmer to cooler temperatures until there is no longer a difference in temperature, it is time to talk about heat transfer in regards to your heating and/or air conditioning system. In the winter, your HVAC system works to provide you with heat. You can navigate to this website for more about the HVAC system. According to this AC installation near me, the heat maintained within your home wants to go outside so that there is no temperature difference. The heat your home looses in the winter is gained by the heating system. In the summer, the heat from the outside wants to make its way into your cool home. The heat gained from the outside is removed from you home by your air conditioning system. Your HVAC system works in order to make sure that you are comfortable, but heat will always be obnoxious. Insulation provides resistance to the flow of heat. It is important to your home in order to make sure that energy is not being wasted by your HVAC system.
