Most of the essential parts and materials of your home are invisible to the naked eye. Once your home is completely built, all of the important systems that keep your home comfortable and liveable are covered by drywall. Your plumbing, electricity, and home insulation are essential but that doesn’t make them any less important.
There are several reasons you should insulate your home. The first, and sometimes most important reason is that insulation will reduce your energy bill.
If you live in the north, or anywhere it gets cold during the winter, proper insulation can save you hundreds of dollars a year. As mentioned before, insulation will also increase your comfort. No matter the weather, insulation helps regulate the temperature inside your home. It helps keep heat in during the winter and cool air inside during the summer.
Along with lowering your energy bill, using less energy also helps the environment and lowers your carbon footprint. Because of all of these benefits, by having proper insulation you are also improving the value of your home. Insulation isn’t an expensive product. While it does include a little bit of labor, it’s an inexpensive way to improve your home.
