Why You Should Insulate Your Home

Jun 20, 2019

Why Insulate Your HomeWhen it comes to improving your home’s energy efficiency and maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature no matter what time of year it is, proper insulation is key. Insulation is one of the most effective ways to save energy at home and reduce your monthly utility costs because it helps keep the desired indoor temperature, whether you’re trying to stay warm throughout cold winter nights or cool during hot summer afternoons. In fact, you can save hundreds of dollars in heating or cooling costs just by improving your home’s insulation.

In addition to enhancing your comfort and improving your home’s energy efficiency, other benefits of insulating your home include:

Noise Reduction

Adding insulation to your home can increase sound control by creating a barrier that prevents unwanted outdoors noises such as the clamor of traffic and rumble of lawnmowers from getting inside while keeping inside sounds from being heard outside.

Smaller Carbon Footprint

If you’re interested in living a “green” lifestyle, insulation can help as well. Since it allows you to use less energy to keep your home comfortable (and, in turn, produce fewer emissions), you’ll be able to reduce your carbon footprint and your environmental impact.

Increased Resale Value

Most people don’t think about the impact adding insulation to your home has on its resale value, but if you’re considering selling putting your home on the market in the near future, improving your insulation can make a huge difference.

If you have the budget for it, consider replacing your roof with a new one and adding insulation for a more energy-efficient home and much bigger increase on its resale value. In fact, according to the most recent cost vs. value report by “Remodeling Magazine,” a new roof can increase your home’s resale value by thousands of dollars.
