Why Re-Insulate Your Home?

Energy savings are some of the biggest benefits of installing more insulation in your home, especially if it was built 20 or more years ago (older houses tend to be under-insulated). But re-insulating offers more advantages than that!

Installing more insulation in your home can help:

Improve the efficiency of your HVAC systems.

With proper insulation, heating and cooling systems don’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable and can, therefore, run more efficiently and last longer without problems. They’re not as likely to break down in an untimely manner.

Increase comfort levels inside your home.

Air leaks into and out of your home a few different ways, most often through gaps in walls, ceilings, windows and doors. A home that isn’t properly insulated can be drafty and uncomfortable. The right amount of insulation helps your home stay comfortable all throughout the year—warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Reduce noises.

Insulation in the walls, ceilings and floors can help reduce outside noises as well as noises inside, between different rooms and stories. In our experience, loose-fill cellulose and fiberglass are the best types of insulation for soundproofing.

Contribute to a healthier environment.

Insulation helps lead to decreased energy consumption, and decreased energy consumption reduces CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. Because insulation can help reduce your home’s carbon footprint, it is doing its part in helping keep the environment healthy. Some insulation materials can also help improve indoor air quality.
