Adding insulation to your home can provide long-term benefits to your wallet. Here are some tips when considering how best to protect your home:

  1. Environment, landscape shading, position of the home with regards to the sun, as well as the overall design of the home each offer indication as to what type and how much insulation is best.

  2. Resistance-value (R-value) is the measure of heat transfer in your home. The higher the R-value the better and the more protected your home is from the elements. To determine the best R-value for your home, visit the Department of Energy for their recommendations.

  3. When adding insulation to the attic of your home, keep in mind that your attic needs to breathe. Proper airflow is a must as it helps curb moisture. Adding baffles allows soffits to perform optimally. Your pest management professional can offer you additional insight on how to ensure your attic is performing optimally.

  4. Recessed light fixtures and wiring should be taken into consideration as these are potential fire hazards when not properly considered. Using approved light covers makes you a safe and savvy homeowner.

  5. The ins and outs of insulation can be tricky. Selecting the appropriate insulation contractor can be as well. Considering that you might already have a trusted relationship with your pest management professional, ask for their insight and help in determining the best plan for your attic, basement, or crawl space.
