For most people, the first thing they think of when it comes to insulation is energy efficiency. Insulation certainly plays a big role in helping regulate building temperature, but that’s far from the only way that good insulation can benefit occupants.

Why Insulation Matters: Beyond Energy Efficiency

Read on to learn three surprising ways insulation can impact indoor conditions.

  1. Moisture Control – Having adequate insulation is crucial in your home. It will hold your home’s ambient temperature consistently and comfortably while preventing humidity and moisture issues and also preventing mold and mildew growth.
  2. Noise Reduction – You might not realize it, but your insulation is helping dampen noise from outside and from within your home or business. Proper insulation helps absorb sound, from noisy street traffic to boisterous conversations to late-night wandering feet.
  3. Better Indoor Air Quality – The insulation in a building helps seal it from the outside world and creates a controlled indoor environment. Properly installed insulation can help prevent outdoor pollutants, allergens, and other contaminants like dust and dirt from making their way indoors, allowing occupants to breathe better. Because of this, good insulation is especially important for homes where a member of the household suffers from allergies or other respiratory issues.
