Need A Reason to Insulate? We have many:
- Improve Indoor Air Quality
Research shows that indoor air quality may be worse than outdoor air in many cities. The quality of your indoor air may be affected, not only by mold or mildew in the home, but also by exposure to formaldehyde which is present in many building products.
- Maximize Energy Efficiency
Effective insulation is one of the most important factors in the energy efficiency and comfort of any building. By air sealing and properly insulating your home, you create a thermal envelope that encloses heated or cooled living spaces. This not only maintains comfort, it also saves energy, and helps lower your energy bills.
- Reduce Noise
Noise disrupts a peaceful home and can interrupt sleep and produce stress. Noise can travel either through the air or through the solid building materials in your home. The easiest way to make your home quieter is to use standard fiberglass insulation in your walls, thus cutting noise from stereos, tvs, neighbors and equipment noise such as fans or furnaces.
- Stay Consistently Comfortable
Insulation plays a role in both winter and summer, providing an effective barrier against weather changes outside the house. Not only does insulation keep you warm in winter, it also prevents your air conditioning from working harder than necessary to maintain cooler temperatures in summer. By keeping both your furnace and your air conditioning working efficiently, you’ll save money in energy bills and eliminate drafts and inconsistent temperatures.
- Find Environmental Peace of Mind
No matter where you are in the life cycle of home ownership, it is never too early – or too late – to specify products and utilize proper insulation techniques to make your home healthier, more comfortable, and more energy efficient. In particular, you should insist on safe, formaldehyde-free fiberglass insulation.
