According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 42% of a homeowner’s utility bill is spent on heating and cooling costs. That number goes up drastically when a home is poorly insulated and without proper insulation, the heated or cooled air your heating and cooling system is working so hard to produce escapes through voids, walls and the attic. Proper insulation can cut those costs by an average of 20%!
If your home does not have the proper insulation, or if your insulation is installed incorrectly, you can do severe damage to both your home and your wallet.
Symptoms of Insulation Issues:
- Rodents and insects entering in your home
- Frozen pipes
- Higher energy bills
- Fluctuating indoor temperatures
- Chilly indoor drafts
- Cold rooms
- Cold walls, floors, and ceilings
- Ice on your roof
BENEFITS OF FIBERGLASS INSULATION
Fiberglass building insulation is used primarily for thermal and acoustical purposes in wall cavities, attics, and other critical open spaces in building assemblies. One of its key benefits is value. Fiberglass insulation has a lower installed price than many other types of insulating materials.
