Improve Your Home Insulation to Attract More Buyers

Home insulation is important to every home because it makes the structure more energy-efficient and also saves you money on utilities. Heating and cooling systems account for 50-70% of home energy usage, so maximizing their efficiency is crucial.

Alarmingly, most houses in the United States are not popularly insulated or, worse yet, not insulated at all. If you’re planning on selling your house, then you need to be sure it is well-insulated in order to make it more attractive to potential buyers. As eco-friendly and green living lifestyles continue to gain in popularity, more and more home buyers are considering proper insulation to be a priority. As a home seller, this is important for you to know, as it gives you the ability to maximize this feature in your home in order to sell it quicker.

When installing home insulation, there are a few things you need to know first. There are certain standard levels of insulation, so find out what those guidelines are based on the type of home you have. Insulation should be inside exterior walls, in unventilated crawl spaces, and slabs on grade. Attics are one of the least ventilated areas in a home and can get very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter if not insulated properly. This is an area that should be prioritized when it comes to improving insulation in your home.
