Installing your own insulation is a big no-no. Unless you are an insulation expert, you will want to stay away from doing this, because it can be a bit of an issue. There are three main reasons why you would not want to do this, but there are many others as well. Let’s take a look at these reasons today.
This item is of the utmost importance. With certain kinds of insulation, you may be vulnerable to some health hazards, and because of this, you will want to avoid installing insulation by yourself. With fiberglass insulation, we see the issue of the shards of glass that the material is made up of.
Sometimes, in certain homes, you will need to have specific kinds of insulation depending on where you are looking to put it. In terms of houses that are newer, they may have a more geometric shape, but with older homes, they may have more nooks and crannies, which would be perfect to install spray foam insulation. There are a lot of variables that go into installing the proper insulation, and because of this, you will want to get an insulation contractor to check out the area.
Once again, similarly to what was mentioned above, the nooks and crannies can cause a lot of issues with people that don’t necessarily know what they are doing. This can mean that gaps will be in between the insulation, meaning that the air is getting out of the house. This means that you essentially didn’t do anything to better the insulation in your home, because it needs to be all around to ensure that nothing gets out.
