If your home is drafty, dusty, and you are paying a lot in energy and utility bills each month, it might be time to check out your insulation and ductwork in your home. Adding new insulation and making sure that your ducts are sealed properly can make your space more enjoyable simply because it will regulate temperature and keep air where it should be.
What are the benefits of insulation and duct sealing?
Sealing leaky air pockets around your home and adding updated insulation can help make your home more comfortable and can also save you significant amounts on your energy bills. With properly sealed ducts, your home will be a healthier environment because dust and other harmful particles cannot penetrate through the ducts. Adding home insulation to an existing home will also provide a better sound barrier, which helps keep your home more private and other unwanted sounds out. The right insulation also keeps your home protected from excessive moisture and it can also keep pollutants and allergens out of the home. Think of insulation as a way to keep your home energy efficient, as well as warm and protected from the outside world.
There are also many benefits to duct sealing. First, sealing and insulating the ductwork in your home means that you will reduce the risk of pollutants entering the ducts and circulating through your home. Fumes from outside chemicals, dust, and even harmful particles from the insulation itself can get through leaky ducts and in time, enter your home and ultimately, your airway. Leaking ducts can also cost you money, so if they’re sealed and working properly, you’ll reduce that amount of energy you need to cool or heat your home.
