Insulation isn’t something that probably crosses your mind very often, if at all, unless you’re building a new home or need to re-insulate house. For many people the insulation is just what keeps you warm in winter, but the truth is is that it provides year-round benefits. High quality insulation for walls, floors, basements, attics and other areas of your house are a great investment, here’s why.
Insulation is used to regulate the temperature of your home’s interior. If a home is not properly insulated insulated you can lose 20 to 30 percent of your energy used to create warm or cool air. This means that your heater or A/C unit will have to work harder to keep your home properly tempered, which will cost you on your monthly bill.
Insulation is a great sound dampener, which can lessen noises echoing from room to room, wall to wall or floor to ceiling. If your home has poor insulation then you’ll be able to hear everything one end of the house to the other.
Since insulation results in the need to use your A/C or heater less it means your home will produce less emissions, thus reducing your carbon footprint.
Home value may not be what comes to mind when you think of insulation, but proper insulation is very attractive to prospective homebuyers. Investing in high quality insulation could be the difference between a quick sale and a no sale.
The most common reason to consider high quality insulation is the comfort factor. Remember, proper insulation will keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter without having to rely on your HVAC unit.
