The Need for Insulation: Old Homes & New

The key to keeping your home cool in the heat and warm in the cold.

Within certain homes, inadequate or failing insulation can result in huge wastes of energy. Insulating ceilings, walls and floors is essential to keeping your home as comfortable as possible.

An insulation upgrade makes your home more comfortable and greatly reduces your utility bills. One thing to keep in mind is that older homes tend to have less insulation than newer homes. Newer homes are typically designed to be as energy efficient as possible, but older homes may need to be retrofitted for updated energy efficiency.
