Is Your Home Insulated?
Whether you have owned your home for years, or you are currently in the process of having a new home built, insulation is something you should put a lot of thought into. The better your insulation is, the more money you are going to save every year. It helps to keep expensive heat in during the cold months, and expensive cool air in during the summer months. Here are a few things to you should know about insulation.
If you’ve had your home for a while, there is a good chance you have fiberglass insulation. This was the most widely used insulation option for decades. But fiberglass insulation has the tendency to develop holes and gaps. Some of these gaps form when insulation settles. Some can form from insect and rodent invasion. That is why it is important to consider an application of sprayed insulation on top of your current insulation, especially if your insulation hasn’t been updated in years. Sprayed insulation fills in the gaps and provides an additional layer of protection on current insulation. And, if you get pest insulation from Schendel, you’ll also be protecting your home from bugs, rodents, mold, mildew, and fire.
When considering insulation for a new home, it is important to think about more than just energy efficiency. When you get pest insulation, you’ll have great insulation, but also protection from invading pests like termites, carpenter ants, and wood borers that can get in and damage the wood of your home. Pest insulation can keep rodents at bay too. While it doesn’t kill rodents, it will leave them feeling ill if they try to use the insulation to make their den. Pest insulation also comes with mold, mildew, and fire resistance! There is no better choice for a new home than a layer of eco-friendly, pest insulation.
Fiberglass insulation may be slightly cheaper, but you get what you pay for. Go the extra mile. Pay a few more pennies. In the long run, this insulation option could save you from frustrating repair bills as a result of having wood-destroying organisms invade, out of control medical bills from pest illness and mold or mildew related sickness, and the loss of your home and precious keepsakes from an out-of-control fire. These are just some of the many ways pest insulation will protect your home and your family.
