Why it is important to insulate

Insulation slows the transfer of heat from inside your home in the winter and into your home from the outside in the summer.

There are many reasons why it is important to insulate your home or business.

  • Home comfort. If the temperature inside your home feels too hot or too cold you probably do not have proper insulation and you could also have air leaks. A home energy evaluation is a good way to determine where the energy is being lost and your options for better efficiency.
  • Building or remodeling. If you are planning to build or remodel, this is the perfect time to evaluate whether you need to add more insulation. It is much easier to add insulation to an open structure.
  • Noise reduction. Insulation can buffer noise transfer from room to room inside your home. Insulating your exterior walls keeps outside noise from entering.
  • Lower utility bills. Higher than average utility bills are usually the result of inadequate insulation and air leakage. Insulation helps keep the temperature comfortable inside your home and saves you money.
  • Carbon footprint. Adding insulation can reduce energy loss from your home which also reduces the carbon released into the environment by fossil fuels.
  • Home value. When you are ready to sell your home lower energy costs may bring a higher price from buyers.
