Eliminate Hot and Cold Spots in your house
Have you walked into a room of your house during the winter or summer months and felt a sudden temperature difference of up to 10 degrees? This may be caused by a lack of insulation in these areas. The thermal properties of insulation help to keep heat IN your home during the winter, and keep the heat OUT during the summer.
ENJOYING PEACE AND QUIET
Insulating your walls, attic and crawl space is an excellent way to reduce noises from outside of your home. According to SoundProofLiving.com, insulation installed a proper R-value can decrease outside noise by up to 80%.
Fluctuating moisture levels of outside air can have a dramatic effect on the materials inside of a crawl space. The dew formed on grass or on a car parked outside can also be formed on wood inside of a crawl space if it is not properly protected. Condensation can lead to higher internal moisture levels of the wood. This can lead to mold, fungal growth, and rot if the underlying conditions are not corrected in time.
Homes with plywood subflooring may experience delamination from prolonged exposure to elevated moisture levels. This can lead to soft spots and potential fall-through points in the floor throughout the home.
Insulation compliments an adequate vapor barrier in protecting your home from these fluctuating moisture levels throughout the day, and throughout the year.
