Why Insulation is Important

Why Insulation is Important

Think about this: what is the benefit of a shelter that does not protect you from the outside elements? If a structure is not properly insulated, it becomes a welcome mat for the elements to access everything inside. Here are some reasons insulation is important to your home.

1. Poor insulation will devour your money.

There are two common routes a homeowner usually takes. They end up paying more in utilities, or they will have to purchase a high energy solution. In the average home, approximately 30% of heat escapes through the roof, 25% through walls, and 10% through floors. With proper insulation, a homeowner can save about 20 percent on utility bills. It really pays to have proper insulation.

 

2. It also creates unhealthy conditions

When there is a large temperature difference from the interior of a building to the exterior, it creates breeding grounds for condensation. It's worthy to note that water damage is currently the leading claim in home insurance. Faulty insulation can also cause extreme corrosion in a building or in a high-temperature system. These situations welcome the growth of mold and mildew, which can create health problems like shortness of breath and asthma.

 

3. Lastly, poor insulation negatively impacts the comfort of your home

Insulation regulates temperature by slowing down the rate in which heat transfers. When an interior temperature is too hot or too cold, it is hard to function. Extreme temperature has been proven to negatively affect mood. Insulation is also a barrier that reduces noise. The difference between a house and a home is comfort. Don't let poor insulation ruin your comfort.
