Okay, let’s first address exactly what insulation is and what role it plays in your roof and home. Essentially, insulation is a way to keep your home warm during the cold months and cool during the hot months. Investing in new insulation can effectively decrease the amount of energy used by your home and help save you money in the long run, which introduces us to our first benefit of investing in insulation.
1. Saving Money
Insulation helps maintain your desired temperature in your house, because, as mentioned earlier, it helps to keep your home heated in the winter and cool in the summer. This leads to minimal or less use of additional heating and cooling, thus driving down costs. In the long run, investing in insulation has a very promising return on investment. This ROI is derived from the reduced costs of additional heating and cooling and increased efficiency of current energy utilization in the home.
2. Increased Comfort
Moment of vulnerability here; how many times have you walked into your home or a building during the summer from it being hotter than the Sahara outside, and you all of a sudden feel as if you just stepped into the Arctic Circle and may get frostbite? With proper insulation, adequate and efficient circulation of air in your attic and home occurs, thus creating a more comfortable climate.
3. Good for the Environment
Call me a tree hugger or a tree climber, but having proper and efficient insulation benefits you and the great outdoors simultaneously. Reducing energy used by investing in properly installed installation helps out the environment, too! 😊
