Are you always waking up from loud noises? Scared that moisture buildup will bring mold to your home? Tired of the unnecessarily high heating or cooling bills? Insulating the interior walls of your home can help maintain a consistent temperature and that extra layer of insulation will bring with it energy efficiency. Many homes already built do not have interior insulation in place, but with Anderson Insulation’s Cellulose Nu-Wool Insulation, we can provide your home with easy interior insulation without damaging the foundation of your home.
The idea of interior insulation can seem pointless, but for many it can save hundreds in heating and cooling and can be the make or break for sleeping through the night. Below we will outline the main reasons why you can insulate the interior walls of your home, and why you should.
Many people believe then when in doubt, external insulation is better than internal insulation. Exterior insulation is always a necessity and interior can be seen as a luxury. With that being said, interior insulation is almost half the price of exterior insulation, therefore many can’t afford the real luxury of exterior insulation and choose for the interior walls to be insulated instead. This can be beneficial in a multitude of ways.
Utilizing insulation in the interior walls of your home will greatly reduce costs when it comes to heating and cooling of your home. For example, if you have rooms in your home that are seasonal or go unused – storage rooms, basements, guest rooms – using interior insulation will help eliminate the energy going to those rooms during the heating season. This, overtime, will lower the amount you spend on heating and cooling your home by eliminating those unused rooms. Learn more about how insulation can result in energy efficiency.
Insulating interior walls in your home will provide sound dampening effects. If you have a big family, or if you’re sick of hearing the TV in the other room while you try to fall asleep, interior insulation can easily minimize the sound transfer from room to room in your home. Interior insulation can be required for apartments and duplexes that have party walls – walls that are shared between different apartments – for reasons such as having loud neighbors.
For areas with high levels of natural disasters or extreme temperature fluctuations, having that extra barrier of insulation will eliminate the risk of moisture build-up in your home. Eliminating moisture entering your home can both bring lower risks of mold and an overall more comfortable home.
All in all, there is no harm in insulating the interior walls of your home. It can build a more comfortable space for your family, and can help in lowering your monthly energy usage.
