When it comes to determining whether you need new insulation in your home, it may be tempting to try to only have insulation added in specific areas you feel may be the biggest culprit. But what if you are doing yourself a disservice by avoiding whole-house insulation to get the best results? Here are a few indicators that whole-house insulation is your best choice:
- Poor Energy Efficiency – It’s one thing if you know that your garage is the reason the floors on your lower level are colder than usual and you need to add insulation only to this space. However, if your entire home is suffering with poor energy efficiency no matter what time of year it is, your insulation could be the problem . . . and having whole-house insulation added may solve the issue for good.
- Insulation Age – If you live in an older home, not only might your insulation have settled so that it is less effective, but it may also be composed of materials that are less efficient at helping you achieve your most comfortable home. There are lots of new products on the market that can make whole-house insulation the best choice for long-term results.
- High Utility Bills – Paying high utility bills is the last thing any of us wants to do, and your home insulation can be one of the biggest culprits. If you’re constantly worried that your next bill will be too much, having an assessment for whole-house insulation could be a great choice. Once the installation is complete, you’ll see cost savings and improved home comfort right away.
