Have your energy bills been higher than normal? Is it uncomfortable and drafty in your home? You may need more insulation. Many people know the monetary benefits of insulation—but in addition to the money you can save on your energy bills, there are other advantages of insulating your house.
These benefits include:
Higher Interior Comfort Levels
Insulation helps stop the transfer of heat, so it can help your home stay comfortable all year long—warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Improved HVAC Efficiency
With proper insulation, your air conditioner (during the warm season) and your furnace (during the winter) don’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable and can, therefore, last longer without problems. Plus, there’s a lower risk that they’ll break down in an untimely manner.
Insulation in the walls, ceilings and floors can help reduce outside noises as well as noises inside, between different rooms and stories. In our experience, loose-fill cellulose and fiberglass are the best types of insulation for soundproofing.
Insulation helps lead to decreased energy consumption, and decreased energy consumption reduces CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. Because insulation can help reduce your home’s carbon footprint, it is doing its part in helping keep the environment healthy. Some insulation materials can also help improve indoor air quality.
What Type of Insulation Should You Install?
The type of insulation you install will depend on a few different factors, including the size and age of your home, the type of HVAC systems you have and more. An insulation professional will be able to determine the best insulation material for your project.
