What Does Insulating My Home Do? 

insulation benefitsIf you’re like most homeowners, you’re concerned about the costs of heating and cooling your home — and for good reason. According to the US Department of Energy, 44% of the energy we use goes toward heating or cooling our homes. The good news is that homeowners can significantly reduce their energy bills by ensuring their homes are properly insulated. A properly insulated home will not only save you money on your heating and cooling costs, but it can also:


Insulation Increases Your Comfort

Insulation makes it easier for your HVAC system to keep the temperature inside your home constant and consistent, ensuring you stay comfortable all year long.

Reduce Noise Pollution

Thanks to its absorption qualities, insulation can actually help prevent unwanted outdoor noise from getting inside while keeping inside sounds from being heard outside of your home. It can also reduce unwanted ambient noises generated by appliances and other causes of indoor noise pollution, as well as prevent conversations and sounds from being transmitted through the walls of your home.


Does Insulation Add Value to Your Home?

Adding insulation can also have a tremendous impact on your home’s value. If you plan to sell your home in the future, you could increase its value by improving your insulation.
