Why Insulation is a Good Investment

Investing in products to make homes more energy efficient pays
significant dividends over a lifetime with none of the wild
fluctuations of Wall Street. Insulation contributes to:

Greater comfort
Even temperature distribution
Improved acoustics
Better moisture control, which can reduce floor squeaks, drywall
cracks, structure damage and condensation
Potential for increased resale value: Installing proper insulation
levels can also make your home more attractive to potential buyers.
In fact, most buyers list energy-efficiency as a prime consideration.
The reason? Buyers know they can buy a more expensive home if heating
and cooling bills can be kept down.
A more environmentally friendly home
Lower energy bills* Unless your home was constructed with special
attention to energy efficiency, adding insulation will probably reduce
your utility bills.
60% of the existing homes in the United States are not insulated to
the best level.
According toa study done by Harvard University's School of Public
Health, 60% of the exising homes are likely to use more energy than
newer homes, leading to very high heating and air-conditioning bills.
Even if you own a new home, adding insulation may save enough money in
reduced utility bills to pay for itself within a few years and will
continue to save you money for as long as you own the home.*
