You’ve likely heard it over and over from friends, family and contractors alike. Insulate your home! The reason for it can be summed up in a single word: money. You know attic insulation is supposed to save, but how much does it save you over the next few weeks? Months? Years?
As a homeowner it’s hard to make a decision to invest without cold, hard numbers. And unfortunately, cold hard numbers are difficult to come by when talking about savings through insulation.
Proper Insulation Saves
Now, we have no intention of dissuading you from updating and improving the insulation in your home. Quite the opposite, actually. We fully endorse it and would urge you to do so. While saying something to the like of “You will save x dollars by insulating your home” isn’t very possible (and anyone who tells you otherwise is attempting to swindle!), it is fair to say proper insulation does in fact save money.
Giving a clear number in savings is impossible mainly due to variance. There are simply too many variables for there to be a single stable number for all homes. Factors include:
- The condition of your current insulation
- The size of your home
- Local climate/where you live
- What type of insulation you are looking into
- Energy usage in your home
