Home/Posts/News and Events/The Benefits of a Properly Insulated Home

If you have a humid or drafty home or have been experiencing an unnatural rise in your energy bills, your home may have air leaks. This happens when valuable energy is lost through holes and gaps around your home. To prevent air leakage, have your home properly insulated immediately.

How Does Insulation Work?

Insulation uses the principle of heat flow. Heat from a room travels to cooler areas such as your attic or through walls. This will become problematic when you want to keep the heat in during colder months and keep it out during summer. When you properly insulate your home, the rate of heat flow will decrease. This will allow for a more consistent indoor temperature.

You can start insulating your home by caulking and weather stripping windows and doors. You can also replace old siding with energy-efficient options. For your roofing in Peabody, MA, there are also energy-saving options available. Our professionals can also install insulating foam in your attic to help maintain a constant indoor temperature.

What are the Benefits of Insulation?

According to ENERGY STAR, an energy-efficient home can save up to 10% on annual electric bills. Proper insulation can also improve overall comfort by maintaining a warm or cool indoor environment, depending on the season.

Other benefits of insulation include:

  • Noise reduction
  • Improved indoor air quality due to decrease in allergens and dust
  • Ice dam prevention
  • Better humidity control
