Here are some of insulation’s benefits beyond energy savings:
- Comfort. Insulation creates a buffer between your home and the hot summer air, so less of it gets inside to mix with your comfortable, air-conditioned air. Also, if the power goes out, your home will stay comfortable for longer if it is properly insulated.
- Quiet. Thick insulation can absorb outdoor noises from wafting into your peaceful home.
- Fire protection. Air leaks can help a fire spread. Insulation helps stop air leaks. Choose insulation that meets fire safety stands to prevent insulation-related fires.
- Frost protection. If you live in an area where temperatures drop below freezing in the winter, insulation can help protect your pipes from freezing.
