With the oncoming cold season we here at Martino Home Improvements, are busier than ever installing insulation in homes all around Oakland County and Michigan. Everyone wants to take advantage of a warmer home in the winter and insulation is a great way to do just that. However, attic insulation has more benefits to it than just heating your home in the winter, and those benefits can be huge.
1. Improves Energy Efficiency
Insulating a home can save 45-55% of heating/cooling energy. This means big savings for you on your energy bill.
2. Improves Comfort Year-Round
Insulation not only keeps warm air in in the winter, but it also helps to keep the cold air in during the summer months. Therefore, the benefits of insulation last all year round.
3. Eliminates Condensation on Walls/Ceilings
Insulation keeps your house locked up tight against the elements. This tight protection stops condensation from forming on your walls and ceilings.
4. Creates Sound Proof Barrier
Insulation forces sound waves to bounce off the fibers of the insulation. This muffles the sound. If the insulation is good, it will reduce the sound entering your house and within the house.
5. Adds Value to Your Home
If you’re looking to sell your home within the next five years, insulation can help add value to your home, making it more appealing to prospective buyers. Reduced utility bills from insulation is a great selling point.
