Insulating your home can provide many benefits, but installing it properly is very important. Poor insulation can lead to various inconveniences and more serious problems. Let’s go over some signs of poor insulation and the benefits of proper installation.
During extreme weather conditions, insulation helps keep your home comfortable. If you are trying to cool or heat your house, you definitely do not want the air to escape. If your insulation has been poorly installed, there is a higher chance of air escaping, leading to other problems. The biggest problem would be your energy bills rising. If the air in your home is constantly escaping, you will waste money blasting the heat or air conditioning.
Poor insulation can lead to mold growth, frozen pipes, and more, making your home less enjoyable. Mold forms from condensation on your walls and can be very harmful to your body. Breathing it in can make you sick and cause damage to your lungs. Frozen pipes can take a while to thaw if you need hot water. Improper insulation can cause pipes to freeze over and rust from condensation. This can cause a pipe to burst, leading to more problems and money spent down the line.
Having a properly insulated home comes with many benefits. A house that is correctly insulated keeps the good things in and the bad things out. Heat and air conditioning are trapped in while the weather outside is kept out, keeping you comfortable in your home. Additionally, pests are less likely to enter your home and cause a mess. This will keep home maintenance and energy costs low, saving you more money each month.
