Are your energy bills on the rise? Hoping to increase your home’s energy efficiency? Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to do this! One such option is insulation.
In our experience, installing insulation in new homes—and re-insulating older houses—is a great way to help homeowners save money and live more comfortably.
Do You Need More Insulation?
If you’ve been asking yourself, “Do I need more insulation?” there’s a good chance you may, especially if your home isn’t new. So how do you, as the homeowner, know when to re-insulate?
Talking to professionals is the best option, but there are some signs you can look out for on your own that indicate it may be time to install more insulation in your home:
- High normal energy bills
- Uneven temperatures from room to room
- Unusually hot second story
- Ice dams on the roof
If you notice one of these issues, get in touch with the team at MIG Building Systems today!
Where to Insulate
So, it’s been determined you need to re-insulate—but where in your home should you insulate? A professional can help with this, but it can still be helpful to know some basic information on the front end. Generally, insulation is installed in:
- Attics (knee walls, floors, etc.)
- Walls (both interior and exterior)
- Crawl spaces (walls for unventilated spaces; subflooring and floor joists for ventilated ones)
No matter where you need more insulation or what type of insulation you install, you’ll experience the benefits. Insulation can help lower energy bills, improve home comfort and reduce interior and exterior noises.
