Statistics show that the average American home loses 30% of its energy to air leaks â€” and about 85% of those leaks are in the roof and attic space. As for the other 15%, inadequate wall insulation is among the biggest culprits.
Before we dive into the benefits of Home Insulation, let’s first talk about what Home Insulation is and what purpose it serves. The housing enclosure is what separates the controlled environment (inside) from the uncontrolled environment (outside) those walls that surround you and that roof thing that goes over your head. The fine layer in between the inside and outside is where insulation lives.
The leading cause of energy loss in a home is inadequate insulation. Adding insulation to your attic or walls will help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. You will save money on your utilities and your home will be more comfortable with an even temperature throughout the house.
