Many homeowners put effort into investing into energy efficient appliances, using less power and water around the home, and trying to improve their vehicle’s fuel efficiency. However, many homeowners don’t realize that the insulation in their home is one of the key factors in maximizing their energy efficiency. Here are some of the biggest reasons why you can never have too much insulation in your home.
Boost Your Energy Efficiency
Like we said above, the more insulation you have in your home, the more energy efficient your home will be. Think of insulation as a blanket that you put on your home. Blankets work by trapping warm air underneath and keeping you cozy. The thicker the blanket is, the warmer you will be. Insulation in your home works the same way!
Check the R-Value
The “r-value” is the way that insulation is classified. The higher the r-value, the better than the insulation will resist heat leaving through it. The highest r-value insulation will keep the warmest air inside of your home during the winter. Don’t worry about too much insulation making your home hot during the summer, either! Insulation is designed to keep warm air in the winter and prevent warm air from entering in the summer.
Lower Your Expenses
Since you won’t need to crank the air conditioning and heating as much over the course of the year, insulation will actually save you money. Using less energy means reducing your home’s carbon footprint, reducing the wear and tear on your HVAC system, and cutting your costs dramatically. Adding insulation is also a great way to boost your home’s value if you are looking to put your home on the market in the next few years. The added insulation and increased energy efficiency are majorly appealing to modern homebuyers.
