Most homeowners know the importance of insulating the attic, ceilings, walls and even the basement, but is your home fully protected from top to bottom with complete home insulation in Petaluma, CA? Here are a couple of other areas that you might not have considered insulating before that can make your home truly energy efficient:
- Garage: Even if the rest of your house is insulated, your attached garage could still serve as one of the main areas that allows your forced air to escape. Although the inside walls of your garage’s adjoining rooms might be fully insulated, adding insulation in your garage will create a climate controlled space that is comfortable year-round, and can also boost the value of your property significantly. Additionally, an insulated garage will expand the options of what you are able to do with this temperature controlled space. For example, you might decide to turn the space into an apartment-like living area to create room for a large family. You could also turn the area in to an office or storage space in which you would no longer have to worry about the concerns that usually go along with storing things in a garage for extended periods of time.
- Foundation: While insulating an already existing home’s foundation is achievable, it is admittedly a difficult and complicated project. For anyone building a new house, though, making sure that the outsides of the foundational walls are insulated before being backfilled is certainly a worthwhile endeavor. Working in concert with any insulation that is installed in the basement or throughout the rest of the house thereafter, adding insulation to the foundation will not only help to keep your home temperate, but will also serve as an extra layer of protection against moisture and humidity, as well as any pest or small animal infestations.
- Ductwork: When having insulation installed in their homes, some people might pass on having the insulation on the ductwork reinforced, but this could in fact end up saving you a lot of money. With extensive use, ductwork begins to deteriorate over time, and weaknesses such as gaps that allow air to pass through or piping that is coming detached can cost you money. In addition to having the ducts sealed up to prevent the escape of air, you should also have the areas around your ductwork insulated, particularly if your ducts are located in unconditioned spaces.
