Although you can’t usually see it, home insulation plays an important role in keeping your house warm during cooler weather and cool when hot temperatures hit. When you’re ready to add or replace your home insulation , Ace has a variety to choose from.
Fiberglass insulation is made of fine strands of glass, which makes it lightweight while still providing great insulation. It is also the most commonly used insulator. Another type of insulation to consider is Kraft-faced insulation. It’s still fiberglass insulation; however, it has a Kraft paper backing. Kraft paper is a type of durable paper that is attached to one side of the insulation so that it can be fastened (usually to a 2x4 within the wall) to help keep it in place. The paper backing also creates another layer of insulation.
One of the most important places to insulate in your home is the attic. Heat rises, and if your attic is improperly insulated; your money is literally going through the roof. A close second to attic insulation is wall insulation, especially exterior walls. Insulating these walls will add to your comfort level and subtract from your heating and cooling costs.
Because a well-insulated home can mean more money in your pocket, you may want to assess the quality of your home’s insulation. If you find your house is in need of some more, Ace can help you get the job done. For more information, check out our guide to saving money with insulation.
