Benefits of Insulation

It’s not even July and it’s already swelteringly hot outside (not that it ever gets too cold in Southern California!). If your home isn’t properly insulated, you could be in for a rough couple of months! So if you’re thinking of tackling some home improvement projects this summer, be sure to add insulation to the list.

Why Insulation is Important

Although the upfront cost of installing insulation is higher than other home improvement projects, it pays off in the long-term. Insulation can actually save you hundreds of dollars annually – it pays for itself in about two to four years! The energy savings aren’t the only reason insulation is important, though! Insulation can also:

Make your home more comfortable no matter what time of year it is – Insulation stops the transfer of heat, so if your home isn’t properly insulated, air can easily leak into it. This decreases the energy efficiency of your home and can cause your monthly bills to skyrocket! Air sneaks into your home a number of different ways, most often through gaps in walls, ceilings, windows, and doors. A home that isn’t insulated – or doesn’t have enough insulation – can be drafty and uncomfortable.

Help improve the overall efficiency of your AC – Think about it this way: your air conditioner is constantly working to keep your home cooler than the outside temperature. If you can’t keep the heat outside from getting into your house, your AC has to constantly compete with it – not a good situation! With the right amount of insulation, heat stays outside where it belongs, your home maintains a more comfortable temperature, and your AC doesn’t have to work as hard, increasing its lifespan and reducing the risk of inconvenient breakdowns and costly repairs down the road.

Provide soundproofing – Insulation can reduce noises from outside as well as noises between different rooms and levels inside your house. Foam insulation and blown-in or loose-fill cellulose and fiberglass insulation are the best types of insulation for soundproofing. Installing and insulating acoustical ceilings also provides better sound control.

Help protect against air and water infiltration – If you’ve dealt with air leaks and water damage, you know how frustrating they can be! Air and water infiltration can not only cause your energy bills to skyrocket, but can also lead to other problems such as mold and mildew growth.

Increase the market value of your house – All other things equal, if your home is properly insulated, you can expect to have a higher resale value. Energy efficiency is one of the most important design aspects to home buyers. So if you’re moving in the next couple of years, you may want to move insulation installation to the top of your home improvement to-do list!

Help foster a healthier environment – For those who are environmentally conscious, good news – insulation doesn’t only help your wallet, it helps the environment too! Decreased energy consumption reduces CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions.
