Benefits of Home Insulation
When most people think of "insulation," they think of keeping a house warm inside during cold weather. But there are many other benefits to consider. Here's a look at some of the advantages of making your home more energy-efficient.
A more comfortable living environment
Insulation helps to retain heat inside your home when the New England winter is raging outside-and slow the flow of heat into your home when the dog days of summer arrive. This results in a more comfortable and enjoyable home all year round.
Lower energy bills
Since insulation helps maintain thermal consistency and comfort, you use your heating and cooling appliances less frequently. This translates into significant savings on your energy bills each year-up to 30%!
Reduced environmental impact
If being "green" is important to you, you should know that insulating your home is good for the earth. When you use less energy for heating and cooling your home, you conserve fossil fuels and reduce the amount of chemicals released into the environment from A/C units.
Better indoor air quality
Since insulation creates an effective barrier between you and the world outside, it actually helps to keep irritating allergens and environmental pollutants out of the air circulating within your home. Now that's something to make you breathe a little easier!

Protection from moisture
Insulation and vapor barriers help to seal out unwanted moisture and humidity. This keeps your indoor air more comfortable and also protects possessions inside your home from moisture and mildew.
