Insulating your home might not be something you think about often, as it isn’t a part of your home you see every day. If you experienced draftiness or loss of heat in your home this winter, you might need to add insulation or update your existing insulation. Insulation protects your home from variations in temperature across seasons, and certain insulation materials can even help deter pests and resist fire. Properly installed insulation is an investment that will save you money on heating and cooling costs and will provide comfort for you and your family in all seasons. Here we will outline some of the biggest reasons you need to insulate your home. For more information, read our blog on the top three benefits of insulating your home here.
A home without proper insulation is not energy efficient and will not protect you and your family from the weather across seasons. Heat in the summertime will be able to enter your home, raising cooling costs. If you live in an area that experiences extreme heat and humidity in the summertime, the money you spend trying to keep your home cool will be wasted, as the cool air generated won’t be held in by insulation. The same is true in the winter, as a lack of insulation will let cold air in and fail to trap warm air from your heating system or fireplace indoors. Instead of wasting money attempting to regulate the temperature through your heating and cooling systems, invest in properly installed insulation to keep your home’s internal temperature balanced and comfortable throughout the seasons.
Properly installed insulation can also help to soften noise in your home or business. This is especially helpful in office spaces or buildings that house multiple businesses, as noise pollution can be disruptive and distracting. For example, Owens Corning PINK Insulation is used in industrial, commercial, and residential buildings to mitigate sound, all while resisting fire and preventing mold growth. There are many brands and types of materials on the market, and choosing the right one can be difficult. A knowledgeable contractor will walk you through all of your insulation options and inform you of their preferred brands so that you can make the most informed choice possible.
