A good layer of insulation is invaluable for your comfort and the health of your appliances and other fixtures. It’s likely your home already has some form of insulation, but many older homes don’t have enough to fit the needs of a modern household.

You might not notice this at first glance, but there are ways to tell if your home is poorly insulated. Even if your insulation worked at first, many materials become less effective over time. As a result, you’ll see a sudden spike in your energy bill. And in colder, stormy weather, poor insulation can result in water getting in through your windows and cracks in the wall.

The best and easiest way to tell if your home needs more insulation is to do a simple touch test. In the summer, the walls inside the house should be cool, and in the winter, they should be warm. And no matter the season, your walls should never be damp.

It all comes back to comfort. You deserve to feel content, relaxed, and protected in your home, regardless of the weather. If that’s not the case, and if you’re shivering in a house with damp walls, Home Service Heroes can provide ProCat blown-in loose-fill insulation to protect your property from the inside out.
