Why You Need to Insulate Your Walls

Wall insulation is essential for reducing drafts, supporting consistent and even temperatures, and ensuring comfort throughout your home. Proper wall insulation keeps conditioned air inside your home, ultimately preventing your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system from overworking. As a result, it helps reduce energy use and expenses.

Here is an overview of the benefits of wall insulation:

Supports an energy-efficient home: Poorly insulated walls and walls with no insulation are a source of heat transfer. Since there is no barrier, warm air will escape through your walls during the colder months and hot air will seep through when it is warmer outside. Combat this by ensuring your walls are properly insulated. Wall insulation provides a thermal barrier that minimizes heat flow and reduces your home’s energy use.

Helps you save on energy costs: By reducing heat loss and gain through walls, insulation helps to stabilize indoor temperatures. This leads to less reliance on heating and cooling systems, resulting in lower energy bills and long-term cost savings.

With reduced energy consumption, you can expect substantial savings on your utility bills. Over time, you can recoup the cost of installing wall insulation through these ongoing energy savings.

Improves your overall comfort: Insulated walls can increase your comfort at home. They support consistent temperatures and reduce hot and cold spots. With proper insulation, you can enjoy a cozy atmosphere during the winter and a cooler space during the summer.

Reduces noise level: Wall insulation also acts as a sound barrier. It helps absorb and dampen noise from outside. As a result, you will enjoy the quiet inside your home instead of hearing your next-door neighbors, the garbage truck, nearby traffic, and other types of outdoor noise pollution.

Increases property value: Insulation is a selling point and adds value to your home. Energy-efficient properties are desirable and appeal to many homebuyers.

Types of Wall Insulation

There are several different types of wall insulation available. HomeRx and Performance Insulation Energy Services can help you select the best kind of insulation for your home based on your particular needs and the needs of your home while also keeping your budget in mind.

The most common types include:

Fiberglass Insulation: Fiberglass is made of tiny glass fibers and is incredibly popular for wall insulation. Fiberglass insulation is affordable and effective. It comes in batts or rolls and is known for its fire resistance and ability to absorb sound.

Cellulose Insulation: Cellulose insulation is composed of recycled paper fibers treated with fire-retardant chemicals. It is environmentally friendly, offers good thermal and sound insulation, and can be blown into existing walls.

Spray Foam Insulation: This type of insulation is created by mixing two liquid components that expand and harden. Spray foam insulation provides an airtight seal and excellent thermal performance and can be used to fill gaps and crevices in walls.

Rigid Foam Insulation: Rigid foam boards are made of different types of plastics: polystyrene, polyurethane, or polyisocyanurate. They provide thermal protection, act as a moisture barrier, and are a popular option for exterior wall and basement wall insulation.
