Insulation is an essential part of your building envelope, which is all the components that separate the indoors from the outdoors. Insulation can take many forms, from fiberglass to cellulose to spray foam, and each comes with its own set of specific advantages.

4 Benefits of Insulation

However, insulation, in general, offers a few important benefits, regardless of what kind of insulation it is.

  1. Energy Efficiency – Insulation is best known for keeping conditioned and unconditioned air separate. When it’s cold outside, insulation keeps your heated air from escaping. When the weather is warm, insulation keeps your cooled air inside and keeps the heat out. As a result, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard, and you can save both energy and money.
  2. Moisture Prevention – Insulation is also necessary to help prevent moisture intrusion. It seals your home from the outside and reduces the risk of condensation as well. Because insulation prevents moisture, you can avoid mold growth and the health complications that come along with it.
  3. Noise Reduction – Excessive noise can make it difficult for you to sleep or concentrate when your home should be a place where you can relax. Luckily, insulation doesn’t only reduce heat transfer; it also reduces noise transfer.
  4. Increased Value – Because insulation is vital and offers a wide range of benefits, quality insulation that is installed correctly can increase your home’s value, making it more attractive to prospective buyers should you ever decide to leave it.
