Effective insulation is vital to any home. However, insulation is installed at the earliest stages of a house’s construction and it is seldom upgraded even when renovations are badly needed. By re-insulating your home, you can significantly boost its long-term value. Here are some of the most notable benefits of professionally installed insulation:
Lowering Your Energy Bills
Insulating your home is one of the best cost-effective energy-saving measures a homeowner can make. Effective home insulation works by keeping hot air inside the house during winter and outside during the summer. The more effectively you insulate your home, the less need you will have to run your HVAC system. Think of your home as a six-sided box and consider the need to insulate on all six sides to protect from exposure to outside air.
Reducing Noise inside Your Home
Having a comfortable home means having a quiet home. With a professionally insulated house, you’ll notice a significant difference in the level of ordinary household noise you are exposed to. The reason: Insulation actually absorbs sound waves from noise-making appliances, audio players, and even conversation. High-quality insulation amounts to reducing the noise level inside your house.
Making Your Home a Healthier Place
Living in a leaky home can raise your likelihood of becoming sick. Effective insulation will help prevent mold and mildew from growing in your ceilings and walls, which will help ensure clean air and reduce the potential for allergic reactions or asthma attacks. The key to healthier air is the control of airflow, which is accomplished through an air-seal. It’s the air-seal that makes the insulation do its job.
