Aside from finding ways to make one’s home more beautiful, comfortable and functional, property owners also exert efforts to promote energy efficiency. And one great way to achieve better energy efficiency and decrease energy costs is through residential insulation. Even better, residential insulation can increase the value of your home.
Residential insulation is very helpful in energy efficiency as it helps keep the temperature controlled indoors. It keeps the temperature down when it’s too hot outside, and high when it’s too cold outdoors. Your heating and air-conditioning system won’t have to work twice as much to keep you comfortable inside your home, thanks to proper insulation.
4 Reasons Proper Insulation Can Increase Your Home’s Value
Now you might be wondering how insulation can even increase the value of your home when it can’t be seen from the outside, and most likely not even visible soon as you enter your house. First of all, you must take note that it has to be a properly installed insulation material. It can be any of the usual insulation types like spray foam, blown-in, fiberglass insulation, etc. No matter what type of insulation you get, it has to be properly installed and guaranteed to work before it can actually increase the value of your home.
If you are planning to resell your home in the future, or if you have purchased a property mainly as an investment, then the benefits of insulation will certainly be enjoyed by its future owner. Here are some of those reasons proper insulation increases a home’s value:
1. Proper Insulation is an Investment
Insulation costs money to install from materials to labor. The cost of insulation installation will of course go towards the price of your property.
2. Insulation Promotes Energy Efficiency
Many property buyers look for green homes and those that can offer energy efficiency. As earlier mentioned, electricity costs go higher almost on a regular basis. With proper insulation, energy costs can significantly be reduced - and many buyers would be willing to pay extra for this benefit.
3. Insulation Makes a Home More Comfortable
Comfort over anything else is highly important when one is looking for a home to buy. Even if a home looks absolutely beautiful, but very uncomfortable to live in, then it can be hard to sell. Since insulation improves the overall comfort of your home, that kind of comfort could definitely add to your home’s price tag.
4. Properly Installed Insulation Looks Good
You have to admit it - especially if you went the DIY way when installing insulation, it may not look good. But one can tell if an insulation is professionally installed. You can have an insulated attic that looks very presentable for sure. And of course, aesthetics is a huge consideration when buyers look for properties to purchase.
