Besides increased energy efficiency and saving costs on utility bills, there are several other benefits to upgrading your home insulation. In today’s blog, Valley Insulation details other characteristics you’ll notice after you’ve maximized your home insulation.
One of our satisfied clients put it best when he wrote to us about reaping the benefits of cellulose insulation, saying: “I suspected the house was ‘tight’ last summer when there was a man running a rototiller just outside the house and I could hardly hear him. Now we’re almost through our first winter here and we’ve been toasty warm the entire season.”

Adding home insulation will increase sound control. Insulation creates a sound barrier, keeping unwanted sounds out and protecting your privacy by keeping the sounds from inside your home from being audible outside. Since it is composed of many small particles that pack densely together, cellulose insulation offers great sound dampening. Insulation will also help decrease noise between rooms.
Warm and Cozy Feeling
Adding insulation to your home is a great way to increase the comfort of your living environment, especially in places of extreme weather. Home insulation also creates a moisture barrier, protecting your property from dampening, rotting, mold growth, and pest infestations.
Another benefit of home insulation is it creates an added barrier between you and the outside world, keeping environmental pollutants and allergens out so your home environment is regulated, healthy, and comfortable.
Another plus to insulating your home is a reduced environmental impact. Well-insulated homes use less energy for heating and cooling. The reduced energy use will reduce your carbon footprint, and also cut the number of chemicals released into the environment from air conditioning units.
