Keeping your home comfortable, healthy, and energy efficient can seem like a daunting task. With the plethora of services available today it can be difficult for anyone to determine which is best for their home’s specific needs. Luckily, the team at Healthy Home Energy is on your side to help! 

We see your home as an interconnected system and take each component into account before making recommendations on which services will have the most impact. From our years of experience, we’ve found that insulation is cost-effective, reliable, and long-lasting. This essential home upgrade can make you more comfortable and help you save on your energy bills among its many benefits. 

Insulation Solves Your Home’s Comfort Issues 

It’s a common misconception that insulation only brings comfort in the winter. By acting as an added layer of protection between your home and the outdoor elements, insulation keeps you comfortable any time of the year. There are many comfort issues that insulation can solve, such as:

  • Drafty rooms

  • Cold or stuffy rooms

  • Chilly floors

  • Inconsistent temperatures

  • Outside noise intrusion

  • Upstairs too hot or cold

Other Benefits of New Insulation

Many homeowners aren’t aware of the many other issues that can instantly be solved with insulation upgrades. In fact, insulation can not only help you achieve more consistent temperatures throughout the frigid winters and sweaty summers, but it provides many whole-home benefits as well, including:

  • Improved HVAC performance - Insulation takes unnecessary stress off your HVAC system, allowing it to reach your desired temperatures more easily and extending its lifespan. 

  • Better indoor air quality - Adding an extra barrier to your home’s thermal envelope also helps keep pollutants like dust and pollen from entering your living spaces.  

  • Ice dam prevention - Insulation helps prevent the heat loss that causes ice dams to form on your roof every winter.

  • Moisture reduction - By reducing the amount of moisture that gets in your home, insulation helps prevent mildew and mold growth. 

Where to Insulate Your Home

The best way to determine exactly where you need more insulation is with a Healthy Home Assessment. This in-depth energy audit into your home’s performance gives our team valuable insight so that we can make educated recommendations based on building science, not guesswork. By combining insulation with air sealing areas of unwanted airflow, you’ll enhance the overall benefits of both. Some common areas we’ve seen that need insulation improvements are:

  • Attics - In addition to improving your comfort, attic insulation is crucial in protecting your home from ice dams by preventing unwanted heat transfer to your roof. 

  • Basements & crawl spaces - Insulating your basement or crawl space improves your home’s structure by keeping moisture out on top of keeping conditioned air inside. 

  • Exterior walls, windows, & doors - Insulating the areas of your home that are connected to the outdoors is crucial in keeping you comfortable all year long. 

  • Air ducts - Leaky and poorly connected air ducts can lead to significant energy loss and inconsistent temperatures throughout your home.
