The Importance of Insulating Your Home

The cooler temperatures have arrived and it’s only going to get colder from here! Now is the perfect time to make sure that your home is properly insulated before the real freeze heads our way. Ensuring that your home is insulated properly can not only save you money on heating and air conditioning costs, it can make your home more comfortable by absorbing unwanted noises. If you’re thinking about insulating your home--don’t wait! Here are some reasons why it’s oh-so important:

Lower your energy costs

Improperly insulated homes can waste precious energy in both heating and cooling your home-- and with energy costs on the rise, this could cost you hundreds of wasted dollars a year. Not having an insulated home will also put an unnecessary strain on your heater or air conditioner, as your unit will be forced to work harder to keep temperatures comfortable. This could ultimately lead to costly repairs down the road.

Increase comfort and reduce noise pollution
Insulation actually reduces unwanted ambient noises generated by appliances, conversations, audio equipment, or other causes of noise pollution. It prevents noise from being transmitted through the walls or floors of your home, due to its sound absorption qualities.

Provides a healthier environment
It’s important to keep good conditions in your home, to ensure the health of you and your family. Adding insulation helps to create a moisture barrier, keeping unwanted moisture and humidity out of your house. This will not only benefit your health, but will also protect your possessions indoors, creating a much more comfortable living environment inside. In addition to the moisture barrier, insulation will also keep environmental pollutants and allergens out of your home, helping you to live a healthier life!
