Home insulation is one of the most overlooked, but fundamentally important, parts of your home. Most people insulate their attics, their walls, and their floors, so it is easy to forget about it since it’s out of sight. Insulation helps you keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. There are many different types of insulation that are best for different situations, but wherever you use it it is a good investment. Here are some major benefits of installing insulation in your home.
Insulation is a vital part of keeping your home comfortable. In the winter, insulation keeps the warm, heated air in and the cold winter weather out. In the summer, it keeps the cool, air-conditioned air in and the heat out. In fact, a well-insulated home will be easier to heat and cool, and you may have to rely on your heating and cooling systems less.
Insulation can also help keep the sound down between the rooms. When you put insulation in the walls between rooms, or in between the beams in the ceiling, the insulation will help absorb the sounds coming from the room. This way, you won’t be bothered by the loud snoring from the guest room, or the late night gaming down in the den.
If you want to make your home more environmentally friendly, insulation is a great way to do it. You need the right insulation and the right amounts of it to make your home green. If your home is properly insulated and you’re using less energy to heat and cool it, you will reduce your carbon footprint. There are also many types of insulation available today, so you can choose a material that is as environmentally friendly as possible.
As mentioned above, a home that’s properly insulated is easier to keep warm or cool, which translates directly into a happier wallet. When your home is not properly insulated, it can lose between 20% and 30% of the energy spent on heating or cooling. This also puts a greater strain on your heating and cooling systems, which could translate into more maintenance and repair costs. Insulating your home properly can help you save money in lots of ways.
Another money-related way that proper insulation can benefit your home is if you’re planning to sell. Insulation is a great investment, especially if you plan to put your home on the market in the next five years. A well-insulated home will have greater marketability, and it may help you get your asking price more quickly once you put it on the market.
