At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we know how important a homeowner’s budget is, and while you may not have made all the right decisions in 2013, it’s a new year and a new chance to save some money – by adding insulation to your home.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, if your home is as little as 5-10 years old, it is most likely one of 46 million homes that experience too little insulation. With a properly insulated home, you’ll not only be more environmentally friendly, you’ll save on energy costs, improve your comfort level, and reduce noise.
Home insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to save money on your heating and cooling bills all year round. Insulation keeps your heat or air conditioning from escaping your home, so the more insulation you have, the less you’ll have to rely on your HVAC system to keep you comfortable. You’ll save money on your energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint because you won’t have to use your heat or air conditioning as much.
By insulating your home, you’ll make it much more comfortable to live in. Insulation protects against the hot temperatures of summer (by letting your air conditioning flow freely) and the cold temperatures of winter (by reflecting your heat), so you’ll always feel cozy and relaxed.
Whether you live in an urban area that experiences a lot of noise or you just enjoy the satisfaction of a quieter home, having the right amount of insulation will reduce the noise around you. Insulation material is sound-proof; when sound waves encounter the insulation, they are partially deflected by the product’s density and partially absorbed by the millions of interconnecting air pockets. This means the noise you hear between rooms and the noise you hear outside will be dulled.
