There are many reasons for installing home insulation and it can be one of the best investments a home owner can make. Some of the main benefits of our home insulation can be seen below:
Lower Energy Costs
The Energy Saving Trust rates home insulation as one of the most effective ways to reduce your energy costs. Surveys and research has shown that bills can be reduced by many hundreds of pounds each year. The low cost of installation means that the savings over time can be significant. Modern insulation types are also long lasting.
Improved Home Comfort
Insulation is particularly effective at improving your homes room temperatures. Insulation such as spray foam can provide warm conditions in the winter and cool conditions during the summer. This is done through controlling your homes airflow.
Increase The Value Of Your Home
Any home owner in the UK looking to sell their home has to provide potentials buyers with a home information pack. Within the pack it details a homes energy efficiency rating. Poorly performing homes have proven to fetch lower asking prices as people are looking for more sustainable homes. Insulation can be installed to improve a homes energy rating.
Reduces Carbon Emissions
Recent research shows that thermal insulation could help reduce carbon emissions and save upto 350 million tonnes in waste by 2010. This is because insulation reduces the amount of wasted energy in your home. Essentially poor or no insulation results in heat loss which escapes in to the atmosphere.
Prevents Condensation Build-up
Condensation can be a huge problem within some homes and home insulation can be used to resolve the problem. This is because it helps control airflow and stops the build-up of moisture in the air.
