Is Your Home Under-Insulated?

Under-Insulated HomeInsulation plays an important role every home as it helps increase comfort and decrease energy costs at the same time. There are many types of insulation – spray foam insulation, blown-in insulation, rigid foam insulation, radiant barriers, and more. Depending on the structure of your home and the insulation effects you’re aiming for, your local contractor can recommend the type of insulation you can use. It is important, however, to be sure that your home is not under-insulated.

Under-insulated means that your home already has insulation, but not enough to provide its expected effects and benefits. Sure, you can have spray foam insulation in the attic, but if there’s not enough insulation material, it can be possible for your home to still remain uncomfortable when it’s too hot or too cold and your energy bills may still be high.
