It is well-known that insulation is meant to keep your home more comfortable all year round —warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, but there are plenty of other benefits. Insulation helps keep unwanted sounds out, such as traffic and outdoor noise, creating a more peaceful living environment. It also forms a moisture barrier, leading to dryer walls and less humidity. In addition, updating your insulation may increase your home’s resale value.
