3 Ways Insulation Improves Your Apache Junction Home

 

Insulation is an ideal way to keep your home warm and to retain energy from your heating system. This is a special consideration in Apache Junction, where the desert nights can get surprisingly chilly. Insulation can improve your home in a number of additional ways, not all of which are obvious at first glance.

Call Goettl Good Guys for all of your insulation needs!

Here are 3 of the most important reasons you need insulation.

  • It keeps things cool as well as warm. We think of insulation as most useful in the winter, which doesn’t have much bearing here in the desert except at night. But insulation doesn’t just help your home retain heat. It helps it stay cool in the hot summer days when you’re running your air conditioner. Good insulation reduces the strain on your AC unit, lowering your monthly bills and extending the life of your air conditioner in the bargain.
  • It acts as soundproofing. This doesn’t apply to every home, but if you live in an attached unit such as a duplex of a townhome, if you have a lot of large echo-y spaces in your home, and/or if you have small noisy children (of all ages), then soundproofing becomes a significant factor in your overall comfort. Insulation muffles sound through the walls quite well, reducing ambient noise and making your living space quieter than it might be otherwise.
  • Fire protection. Insulated walls tend to resist the spread of fire, making your home safer in the bargain. Furthermore, insulation properly wrapped around hot pipes protects surrounding material from burning.

All of these factors come on top of saving you money on your monthly bills, as well as improving the overall resale value of your home. A reliable contractor can explain the different options available to you and discuss ancillary concerns such as proper sealing and moisture issues. The Goettl Good Guys have experience in insulation installation, and can travel to homes in Apache Junction and throughout the greater Phoenix area.
