The walls and attic are common areas of the home to find some of the largest opportunities to save energy and money. By adding insulation to your home, you can:
- Better maintain comfortable temperature in every room.
- Reduce noise from the outdoors and between rooms.
- Lower the risk of dangerous ice dams in snowy climates.
