Insulation is an investment in your home’s long-term energy savings and your family’s comfort. When building a new home, insulation is a small part of the overall construction cost and is one of few building materials that pays for itself over time.
Upgrading insulation in an existing home can dramatically decrease monthly energy bills. The cost of insulation can vary and is determined by many factors including climate zone, the age of your home, the type or style of your home, if you add air sealing and more. Sealing air leaks along with upgrading insulation provides additional energy saving benefits and increases the ROI of insulation.
Spray foam insulation adds R-value and seals air leaks in one application. The cost of spray foam insulation is higher than the other choices but can save you money in energy costs.
Fiberglass insulation is one of the least expensive insulation options. It does not naturally seal air leaks on its own so it is not as energy efficient as spray foam insulation.
Costs vary with the different types of insulation. It is important to choose the best insulation option for the area of the home you are insulating. The insulation experts at G&S Insulating can recommend the best insulating option for your next project. Contact our office today!
