Home insulation doesn’t mean insulating every last bit of your home. That would be a costly and unnecessary project. Instead, insulating the right rooms can be enough to make a big difference. Here at WMGB Home Improvement, we show you what rooms need to be insulated. This way, you can spend less on your project. In return, you’ll save more money on energy bills.
Protecting your basement is important, especially since the foundation is there. This also applies to the foundation itself and the crawlspaces. With an insulated basement, you end up creating another living space. You also minimize heat loss through the foundation. Lastly, you reduce the chance of condensation. This means your basement reduces the risk of water damage, too.
Protecting your attic is the same as protecting the basement. The biggest difference is where the attic is located. Since it’s on your roof, it’s going to be exposed to direct sunlight. This means it will heat up faster compared to other rooms. It’s also where heat will escape to during the winter. Make sure you get blown-in insulation to completely cover the walls.
Whether it’s the room above your garage or the room above the vented crawl space, it’s wise to make sure these rooms are insulated as well. If not, you risk heating up these areas. Cover up any possible air leaks, or install an air barrier to block the heat.
