Why is Insulation Important?

Did you know that uninsulated attics, account for almost 50% of the energy consumed in your home? Adding or replacing insulation can improve the room-to-room comfort in your home, reduce your energy bills, and help the environment. Some signs indicating you need more insulation in your home are suspiciously high utility bills, cold walls and ceilings, and less comfortable upper floors. If your home has not been re-insulated in decades or existing insulation is damp or moldy, then it’s time to contact our insulation contractors. Insulation plays a crucial role in homes and buildings for several important reasons:

  • Energy Efficiency – Insulation acts as a barrier against heat transfer, helping to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. By reducing heat loss or gain, insulation improves the overall energy efficiency of your home. This means you’ll use less energy for heating and cooling, leading to lower utility bills and reduced energy consumption.
  • Comfort – Adequate insulation creates a more comfortable indoor environment. It helps maintain consistent temperatures throughout your home, eliminating cold drafts in the winter and reducing heat buildup in the summer. This even temperature distribution enhances overall comfort for occupants.
  • Energy Savings – Improved energy efficiency from insulation leads to significant energy savings over time. By reducing the need for heating and cooling systems to run continuously, insulation lowers energy bills and can pay for itself through these savings.
  • Environmental Impact – Lower energy consumption associated with well-insulated homes reduces greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact. It contributes to a more sustainable and eco-friendly living environment.
  • Moisture Control – Proper insulation helps prevent moisture intrusion and condensation within walls and ceilings. This moisture control is essential for preserving the structural integrity of your home and preventing issues like mold and mildew growth.
  • Soundproofing – Insulation also serves as an effective sound barrier, reducing noise transmission between rooms and outside sources. This is especially important for maintaining peace and privacy within your home.
  • Improve Major System Life Span – A well-insulated house is also more efficient when your AC/heater is switched on and off less often.

Yes, Even Your New Build May Need Insulation

Damaged or insufficient insulation can lead to significant issues for both residential and commercial properties. Whether you’re retrofitting an older home or working on a new construction project, we’ve got you covered. We believe in providing exceptional service that not only benefits you but also our environment. With new construction homes, builders typically aim to meet the minimum insulation requirements mandated by local building codes when constructing these homes. However, these minimum requirements may not always align with the recommendations for optimal energy efficiency and comfort, as suggested by programs like ENERGY STAR®. While builders strive to meet the minimum requirements, they may miss the mark when maximizing energy efficiency, comfort, and environmental responsibility. Our insulation contractors offer a free assessment to identify where your home may need more insulation.
