Winter is coming! With colder weather just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how to keep our homes warm and cosy. One of the biggest factors that help reduce cold air entering your home and keeping the heat in is insulation.
Here are 5 reasons why you should insulate your home before winter.
1. It’ll reduce your energy bills during winter
Good quality insulation will help retain warmth within your home, meaning you won’t need to use your heater as much! Insulation is designed to keep your home cool during the summer, and warm in winter, so that your A/C and heaters won’t need to be used as often. Not only will your energy thank you in winter, but all other seasons too.
2. Say goodbye to winter drafts
Nobody likes those chilly winter drafts. They’re usually caused by holes and gaps that allow cold air to enter your home, meaning you probably have poor insulation. Good quality insulation can help block out those gaps and holes to ensure warm air stays in, and the cold air stays out.
3. No more cold floors
Cold floors make it that much harder to get out of bed during those cold winter mornings! Floor insulation can make a huge difference in making your floors feel warmer and comfortable during winter.
4. It helps protect against freezing pipes
Many homes suffer from freezing pipes in the winter, which is often caused by major air leakage in your crawlspace or basement. This can lead to a pipe burst which can result in expensive repairs. Pipe lagging can help prevent freezing pipes so that it doesn’t burst in the first place.
5. Schedule in your insulation sooner rather than later
You’ll want to insulate your home before winter rolls around, as contractors’ schedules’ fill up very quickly in colder months. So, the longer you wait to insulate, the longer you’ll have to put up with a cold home. It’s a good idea to prepare before the winter rush comes along.
