Having a well-insulated home brings many meaningful benefits, which is why investing in new insulation is a great idea. In today’s post, A-Best Roofing, the premier roofer in the region, shares three reasons to consider this project.
Return on Investment
When properly installed, insulation can significantly increase your home’s energy savings, especially if you live in an older home. The North American Insulation Manufacturers Association projects that over 90% of homes in the country are under-insulated and that only 20% of homes built before 1980 are properly insulated. Other than significantly boosting your energy efficiency, good insulation can also increase your home’s overall value. You can expect to recoup a huge percent of your investment.
Does your home become uncomfortably warm in the summer and chilly in the winter? Your first thought may be that your HVAC system is no longer as efficient as it once was. While that may be true, it might not be the root of the problem. Having an improperly insulated attic may be contributing. Proper insulation promotes the circulation of air in your attic, creating a desirable interior climate while also improving your roofing system’s service life.
Insulating your attic not only benefits your home but the environment as well. Good insulation reduces the amount of energy your home consumes, resulting in less carbon emissions. The attic is a great place to start, as up to 25% of your home’s energy can be lost there.
