Adding Insulation to your home can increase the value as it will reduce heating and cooling costs. Many older homes either lack the insulation of today’s standards or the home was not sealed properly.
To find out whether you need to add insulation, you will have to research how much insulation your home already has and where it is. A home energy auditor will complete an insulation check as a part of an entire house energy-assessment. An energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment, will also help identify areas of your home that are in need of air sealing. Air leakage happens when outdoor air enters and air-conditioned air escapes your house through cracks and openings.
