There are a lot of important reasons for making sure that your home is properly and adequately insulated. A home that has proper insulation will offer you the following benefits:
Your energy expenses will be reduced much of the year
When your house is properly insulated, it will keep the heat in during the winter. The more heat that's kept in, the less your heater will need to come on to replace escaped heat. The less the heater comes on, the less power and/or gas will be used, thus bringing the winter energy costs down. Also, better insulation will hold in the cold more during the summer months. The less the cool air gets out, the less the AC needs to come on which will also lower the summertime energy bills.
Your HVAC bills can be lowered
As described above, the HVAC won't have to do as much work when it needs to come on less frequently and doesn't need to work as much to achieve and maintain the desired temperature. The less wear that is put on the system, the longer that you will be able to expect it to go before it will start having repair issues.
Your home will have better sounds
When you are in a home with good insulation, there will also be benefits from an acoustic standpoint as well. The insulation will help to prevent a lot of bothersome sounds from outside coming into the home. Some outside sounds that can be irritating to hear in the house include traffic from nearby streets and highways, trains that are close by, airplanes or helicopters flying overhead, dogs barking nearby, neighbors yelling, loud cars or motorcycles in the neighborhood, and more. Fortunately, new insulation can help mitigate these noises. Also, the sounds made in one room won't be as easily heard from the other rooms.
Your home will be better protected from moisture-related issues
When your home is adequately insulated, you will be able to keep moisture out. The insulation will help to seal up the home better from the outside and this is what will help to create a barrier that keeps the inside free of any moisture that might cause issues. Some of the problems that can arise inside a home when too much moisture is allowed inside includes things like mildew and mold, as well as the damaging of different parts of the home over time.
