Owning your own home should be a rewarding experience, even if it does come with challenges. One such challenge is making sure your home is properly insulated, which helps keep you cool in the summer months and warmer during the winter months. Below are five benefits that blown-in attic insulation offers your Horizon, TX, home.
1. Consistent Household Temperatures
With blown-in insulation, you’ll enjoy more consistent temperatures throughout the year. When you have poor insulation in your home, you’re far more likely to notice temperature fluctuations from room to room or even floor to floor.
2. Relatively Easy and Fast to Install
When you have qualified professionals take care of installing your insulation, you’re not waiting long for it to finish. With two or three professionals, your insulation project takes only a few hours, and everything’s done correctly the first time.
3. Helps Protect Your Home from Fire
Your home is your biggest investment, so it only makes sense that you want to protect it as much as you can. Fiberglass and cellulose insulation create an airtight seal, thereby reducing the risk of fire. When you have the proper insulation in your home, you can breathe easier knowing that your home is better protected.
4. Reduces Condensation
Along with protecting your home from a fire, the airtight seal the insulation provides also keeps moisture and condensation out of your attic. Condensation and moisture provide an excellent breeding ground for bacteria to grow in your home, especially in the air ducts. Too much moisture in the home causes roof and structural damage or an increased need for HVAC maintenance.
5. Saves Energy Usage
Since proper insulation prevents heated air from escaping your home, it keeps your home warmer for a longer period of time. Since your home stays warmer longer, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you comfortable. Since your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard, it uses less energy, which keeps your bills lower.
