Just having walls and a roof is not enough to separate the indoor air from the harsh, outdoor air. That’s where insulation comes in.
Insulation is essential for keeping warm air where it needs to be. In summer, that means keeping the warm air outside of your home. In winter, it means keeping the warm air inside the home.
Not only will insulation help you feel more comfortable, but it will also help keep your home cool or warm—meaning less money spent on running the HVAC system.
However, insulation isn’t perfect. It can deteriorate over time and might need to be reapplied every few years. Since insulation stays out of sight and out of mind, many homeowners don’t realize that it might be the reason for their rising heating or cooling bill.
In this post, we’ll go over how often insulation should be replaced and why you should get help finding the right type and amount of insulation.
