Can carpet warm a room?

It?s undeniable that carpet floors with their cozy, comfortable and soft feeling underfoot can automatically give a room a warm atmosphere, not to mention charm and elegance. However, it's also a fact that they also have excellent temperature insulation properties, so rugs retain heat and cool, an energy-saving benefit.

Carpet flooring insulates your home much more quickly than some other types of flooring, such as concrete floors, which are known for losing heat and becoming cold, hard, and sometimes damp.

What is R-value?

This is a system developed by the Department of Energy to determine the amount of heat flow per one inch of material, in this case, carpet. Carpeting blocks hot and cool air loss when combined with padding. Also, know that a thicker rug has a higher R-value rating than a thinner one.

The R-value is usually on the rug's label and usually reads from R-0.2 to over R-2,? but if you don't see it, ask the flooring professional when shopping for carpet in Santa Ana.

Other benefits of carpet include:

  1. 1. Improving indoor air quality. While vacuuming gets the surface dirt, other particles and pollutants get trapped into the fibers, where they'll remain until deep-cleaned. Simply put, they don't fly around in the air for one to breathe; this also is a benefit for those with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems.
  2. 2. Softening falls. No matter how careful we all are, we can fall, and rugs provide cushioning, so it's not as harmful and painful when we do.? They also have good traction, so if some kids or pets run a lot, they can slow down to make turns.
  3. 3. Style and technological advances. These include updated color palettes, digital patterning, and extra durability and stain resistance. In addition, there are countless styles, constructions, and textures with literally something for every person and every budget.
