How Adding Insulation Can Increase Home Value

October 18, 2021

If you want to increase your home value, one good way is by adding insulation to your home. There are several ways this will increase your home value. Two big reasons are that it will make your home more comfortable to live in and it will cut down on energy costs.

Whether you are looking to make your home more cost efficient for you and your family to live in or you’re looking for a return on investment for a potential sale, insulation is a solid choice for increasing your home’s value.

Here are some more details on how adding home insulation can increase the value of your home.

Resale value

One thing you can do to help your home stand apart on the housing market is to make it as green as possible. Many buyers are looking not only to save money on energy costs in their new home to also reduce their carbon footprint on the Earth. Performing energy-efficiency upgrades on your home is a good way to work toward both of these goals.

This includes making sure your home has good insulation. Not only in spaces you occupy frequently, like the living room, bedroom or kitchen, but in spaces where heat might escape in colder months, like the attic or garage.

Home insulation has a great return on investment (ROI), too. Because it won’t suffer the same kind of wear and tear as other home upgrades, like kitchen remodeling or hardwood floors, its value remains intact years after the work is done. A 2016 report by Remodeling Magazine showed that attic insulation, in particular, was the most profitable energy-efficiency upgrade one can perform on their home, with a 117 percent ROI rate.

Energy efficiency

Another reason why home insulation is a good investment toward the value of your home is that you will immediately start to see the financial benefits of adding insulation while you live in the home. Your energy bills will start to decrease because you won’t need to run the heater or air conditioner as often. This will be especially helpful in the colder winter months or when the next heat wave hits.

But it’s not just about saving money—there’s quality of life to consider, too. On a hot day, there’s nothing like coming home to that cool rush of perfectly-chilled air hitting you in the face as you open the door. Instead of having to go to a movie theater to take advantage of the air conditioning, you can relax in the comfort of your own home and enjoy the same experience.

And when the weather gets cold, you won’t feel the bite of winter when you get up for a glass of water in the middle of the night. Your family (and your pets!) will be comfortable year-round—and that’s something that is hard to put a price on.

Insulation is not only a solid investment financially in your home, but it’s a great way to enhance your quality of life. When you’re ready to have insulation added to your home, contact Ace Insulation Inc. today.
