If you?re looking for ways to improve your home?s comfort and efficiency, then adding or improving the insulation of your home is one of the best options that you have ? especially during the wintertime. There are a number of ways to add insulation to your home and a number of places to do it. Adding insulation to your roof is one of the most effective places to do it, and using blown insulation is one of the most effective ways to do so. However, in order to effectively use blown insulation, you should strongly consider hiring a professional service instead of trying to do it yourself. The following are some of the benefits that installing CertainTeed TrueComfort Blown In Fiber Glass Insulation in your home can provide:
Keeps Your Home Comfortable
This is especially true during the winter, when you are trying to keep your home warm. Because warm air tends to rise, insulating your roof will help to prevent the warm air that your heating system produces from escaping out through your roof. In turn, it will also help prevent the cold winter air from penetrating your home.
Helps Keep Energy Costs Down
Without a properly insulated roof, your warm air is going to escape outdoors and cold air is going to sneak in. This means that your heating system will be working longer and harder to replace that warm air. In addition to causing your heating bills to go up, it can also lead to more wear and tear on the heating system itself, thereby shortening its lifespan.
Helps Prevent Moisture Entering Home
Blown insulation provides a much tighter fit than other types of insulation. This helps to keep moisture out. Moisture is something you don?t want to deal with, since it can cause mold and mildew to grow in your home, cause water damage and damage the insulation itself.
Could Provide You With Energy Tax Credits
The government will often reward homeowners that invest in energy efficient improvements to their homes. This means that if you use blown insulation for your roof, you may qualify for energy tax credits.
There are plenty of benefits to insulating your roof, but make sure to consider CertainTeed TrueComfort Blown In Insulation over other types due to its tighter fit.
