Does My Home Need Better Insulation?

If you are struggling with temperature levels or noise levels in your home, there’s a good chance you may be in need of a better insulation option. There is a lot of good information available for homeowners about insulating a home, but for a more concrete answer, this quiz will help you determine what your insulation needs may be.  It’s a short but informative questionnaire that asks you things about your home’s construction, the inside climate during different seasons, and things you may notice in different areas of your home.

While this is a great place to start, there’s no substitute for having a qualified insulation company do a complete evaluation of your home’s insulation. An experienced insulation company will be able to inspect your home thoroughly, determine the current insulation levels and recommend what, if any, insulation needs to be added and where. A qualified inspector will be able to tell you what types of insulation are best for your home’s needs and what the installation will cost.

Benefits of a Well-Insulated Home

You probably know about the savings that a well-insulated home can provide when it’s time to pay those utility bills, but there are two other main benefits of insulation: comfort and sound-proofing.

  1. With a well-insulation home, you can expect a great deal of comfort. There’s a lot of air, cold and warm, that is constantly moving throughout your home—insulation helps create a balanced climate. Those rooms and areas that were just too cold or too warm compared to the rest of the house will be more comfortable, and the inside environment will be more consistent.
  2. When all we want is peace and quiet, sounds from outside like traffic, wind, neighbors, and more can make our homes not so peaceful. Insulation is a great sound barrier and when properly installed, cuts down on a majority of those unwanted noises. This soundproofing also provides more peace of mind because while it reduces the noise coming in, it also reduces the noise going out.
