Many homeowners are tempted to try home insulation on their own. Though it may seem like an easy task, installing insulation properly does take time, training, and expertise. Yes, just about anyone can shove insulation behind their drywall, but they may not fill the space properly. They might not find important air leaks or other areas of concern and address those problems. If you choose to go it alone and opt for insulating your own home, you might end up paying for it in the long run.

Inefficient Insulating

The most common issue when homeowners forego professional help with their home insulation project, inefficient insulating will bring about higher heating and air conditioning bills than anyone wants. Inefficient insulating commonly occurs in DIY projects because most homeowners don’t have the experience to properly judge how much insulation is needed. When the insulation teams at Valley Insulation LLC replace a DIY job, we almost always find spaces left unfilled. Spaces left unfilled or filled to a less than perfect density result in much higher energy bills in the future. You end up paying more month-by-month than you would pay a contractor up front.

Fire Hazard

Improper home insulation installation can result in serious fire hazards. Although cellulose insulation has a slim chance of catching on fire when compared to foam insulation, placing cellulose too close to wiring or light fixtures can be dangerous.
