2. Insulation saves more than energy efficient appliances and windows
If you are interested in lowering your heating and cooling costs you’ll be interested to know that “energy efficient appliances” have little impact on your total heating and cooling costs.
If your home isn’t airtight and well insulated you will not see a significant improvement in your heating and electrical bills, even with new energy efficient appliances and windows.
Good insulation is an easier, more cost-effective solution at making a significant dent in your utility bills.
3. Insulation Results in a quieter more comfortable home
The right insulation can make your home more comfortable and free from outside noise (traffic, neighbors, sirens, etc…) and inside noise (children and media). Homeowners are increasingly requesting quieter more soundproof homes.
4. Insulation can promote a healthy home
Healthy air quality in the home is a major concern form the modern homeowner. As allergies and asthma problems increase, homeowners have become more conscious about the effects of their indoor air quality.
Proper insulation helps to keep out harmful allergens, pollutants and chemicals. Likewise, the wrong insulation may actually increase toxic chemicals and mold in your home. Some insulations use toxic chemical as fire retardants, while others, like spray foam insulation, let off harmful VOC vapors and gasses.
