Benefits of Insulation
There are a number of reasons you should insulate your home, including:
Lower Energy Bills
One of the biggest advantages of installing insulation is the energy savings. Insulating your home can help reduce your energy bills, year in and year out. It’s a home project that truly pays for itself in a few short years!
More Comfortable Home Year Round
Insulation helps stop the transfer of heat. This means a home interior that is more comfortable all year long—warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Improved Heating & Cooling Performance
With proper insulation, your HVAC systems—air conditioner during the warm months and furnace in the winter, or a heat pump—don’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable and are, therefore, more likely to have a longer lifespan. There’s also a lower risk that they’ll break down in an untimely manner, leaving you sweating and uncomfortable or shivering in the dead of winter.
Insulating the walls, ceilings and floors can help reduce outside noises and also noises inside, between different rooms and levels. We have found that 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’s helping contribute to a healthy environment.
