Home Insulation

Many people choose to add insulation to their homes because it’s the standard for home building — but do you know why it’s beneficial to have up-to-date insulation? Saving on your heating and cooling costs is only a tiny part of why it’s helpful to have new insulation. You can save around 15% on heating and cooling costs by insulating your roof, attic, basement, etc. 

Let’s look at some more significant benefits of insulating your home

Insulation improves energy efficiency.

As mentioned above, having proper insulation helps you save on heating and cooling costs. That said, it’s also good for the environment. Without insulation, your home will leak energy — you can lose around 5% of HVAC energy without ceiling or roof insulation! Losing all that energy will make your system work extra hard, burning more fossil fuels and releasing more pollutants into the atmosphere.

Proper insulation means insulating your home from the roof down to the foundation – this will allow your HVAC system to run more efficiently and lower your carbon footprint.

Insulation reduces excess noise.

If you live in a noisy area or have young children with lots of energy, insulation can reduce noise from outside elements and from room to room. Proper insulation prevents excessive external noises from entering the house or spreading throughout. Insulation absorbs sound waves, reducing reverberation within your home. By choosing insulation, you can build yourself a peaceful oasis. 

Insulation reduces risk of mold damage.

Having strong insulation prevents mold growth and damage. A lack of insulation can cause more condensation through the walls, resulting in prolonged dampness and mo ld growth over time. Mold grows over time, resulting in extensive and expensive repairs to eliminate the presence of spores. Home insulation helps prevent moisture from spreading, saving your home from invasive mold growth.

Insulation increases property value.

Lastly, improving your insulation will make your property more appealing if you sell. Having up-to-date insulation makes a home more attractive to buyers, as it isn’t something they’ll have to update themselves. As energy-efficient upgrades are in high demand, investing in quality insulation can provide a strong return on investment. Energy-efficient households can be sold for 2.7% more than other households.
