There are plenty of good reasons to have your home properly insulated: noise reduction, comfort and most importantly, energy savings. Insulation acts as a barrier keeping unwanted allergens and pollutants out of your home. Home insulation is an amazing investment that helps reduce your energy bill in the long term. In an effort to keep your energy bill low, home insulation slows the flow of heat in your home. Slow heat flow means the heat staying longer in your home in the winter, and staying out of the house in the summer. Insulation helps keep the home comfortable especially in areas like New England where the weather varies greatly season to season.
Proper and thorough installation can reduce the noise coming from the outside into your home. It can even keep noise inside the home contained from room to room. Some types of insulation also act as a barrier during fires, making your home safer and more prepared for a fire.
One of the best places to insulate is the attic, but for maximum effect it is advised to insulate the basement, walls and floors to keep the temperature in the house well controlled. An attic that isn’t properly insulated can lead to ice damming, mold and even roof damage. Ice dams are a reality in snowy New England during the winter months without proper venting and insulation. Ice dams form when warm air causes the roof to warm up and snow melts only to refreeze when it gets to the colder part of the roof which is usually the tips. If you get Icicles in the winter, you have ice dams. It becomes a bigger problem when the ice starts to melt and seep behind your shingles and walls. Proper insulation can help greatly to prevent this from happening so you don’t even have to worry about it.
