What many consumers forget, or don’t know or understand in the first place, is the value that insulation brings to the equation – both in terms of comfort and long term energy savings.

    Insulation & the Open Concept Home

    Modern home designs are increasingly utilizing the “open concept floor plan” that has the kitchen, living room, and dining areas as one large room.

Central heating allows larger rooms to stay warm, even without the dividing walls that contain insulation for added heat retention.

    Can Updating Your Insulation Increase Your Home’s Property Value?

    There are a number of improvements you can make to your home that will increase its value. Is updating your insulation one of them? While any improvement to heat and energy efficiency should theoretically increase the market price of your home, research indicates you won’t see any notable return on investment, at least not on your home’s value. It will almost certainly make it more marketable, and if you have an inadequate amount of insulation it’s sure to be noted on the home inspection. However, you do stand to fatten your bank account just the same, at least if you stay in your home for any amount of time. How? By saving substantially on your heating and cooling costs.

    Very few people don’t appreciate the beauty and character of an old home, especially one that has been well taken care of, or possibly renovated/updated while maintaining many of the original features.

However, it’s easy to look at a finished product and be unaware of or ignore the sometimes negative reality of such a home. Aside from the cosmetic undertaking, there may be many structural and mechanical deficiencies which you will want to address.
