Having properly installed insulation can greatly impact the structure of your home over time and will reduce maintenance costs in the future. Any homeowner’s first priority approaching the fall season is to make sure your insulation is in good condition for the approaching winter season. Insulation both protects your home and foundation from moisture buildup, creating rot. It also makes your home more comfortable throughout the temperature fluctuations. Below we outline a few more reasons why you should consider upgrading your insulation this Fall. Our team can offer you a free quote for your insulation needs!
As you could probably guess, the most important reason to consider updating your insulation in the fall is to prepare for the upcoming weather conditions. If you are looking to best prepare for the winter, starting with insulation in your attic is the best place to start. In the summer, this is the hottest place in your home and the winter is the coolest. Put your insulation to the test by using your attic as the first project. From there, you will know what insulation is best for your home. Work with our team of experts at Andreson Insulation of ME to learn more about our variety of insulation products!
Working to upgrade your insulation during the fall months will help you save money during the winter season. Installing the insulation before the cold weather hits means that there will be less of a draft resulting in a more cost-efficient season. In addition to this, if you don’t have strong insulation you will inevitably spend more on keeping you and your family comfortable – whether that means space heaters, gas, heated blankets, etc.
An easily overlooked reason to update your insulation is to prevent pests from burrowing their way through the decaying and/or rotting insulation. The warmth and softness that insulation provides to pests looking to escape the cold couldn’t be better. Making sure you stay on top of insulation maintenance and upgrade it when necessary is a great way to prevent pests from burrowing their way in for the winter season!
