When improving insulation in an old home in Wyoming, MI, there are 3 essential places to fortify for the sake of your home’s health, comfort, and safety. Winter is a great time to add insulation in your Michigan home with the WMGB Home Improvement team, especially in your basement. Read on to learn why!
Whether it’s through air leaks, or heat loss as a result of the stack effect, an uninsulated attic is one of the biggest causes of home inefficiency. Adding attic insulation will help prevent dangerous ice dams, keep your home warm and cozy all winter, and benefit you in the summer as well by keeping heat from the sun’s rays out.
Without crawl space encapsulation or spray foam insulation, a crawl space can cause poor indoor air quality, cold floor and heat loss, and an inefficient home. Adding crawl space insulation and air sealing to your home can make an enormous difference for the health and comfort of your whole home by keeping pests, mold, and cold temperatures out.
The rim joists of your home are commonly prone to air leaks and moisture intrusion. This can lead to mold growth and unhealthy indoor air quality as a result. At WMGB, we carefully install professional spray foam insulation around the rim joists to keep moisture out. Basement insulation can help keep your basement temperatures more consistent throughout the year, and help prevent your pipes from freezing in our cold Michigan winters.
