There is a lot of information about insulation out there, but not all of it is true! So how can you make sure you know what’s fact and what’s fiction? The experts at Thermaseal / Lakeside Insulation can help debunk the myths you may have encountered.

Insulation Is for Winter Weather

It’s easy to compare insulation to a blanket—and when you think of a blanket, you probably associate it with being warm and cozy. However, insulation is not just used to make your home comfortable during the colder months. When it’s properly installed, insulation will not only keep your home warmer in the winter, but it will also make your home cooler during the summer. How? The insulation in your home will act as a buffer against outdoor weather, which will help keep your energy bills down all year long!

Insulation Is Only for New Homes

It’s a common misconception that older homes can’t have insulation installed. Fortunately, there are a number of insulation products that can be used to make more historic homes warm or cool, including cellulose insulation.

Insulation Only Saves Energy

One of the most appealing parts of insulation is the fact that it is energy efficient. However, insulation has a lesser-known talent, too: soundproofing. If your home is in a noisy area, has high ceilings or is home to small children and pets, insulation can help reduce any unwanted noises. Of course, insulation can also add value to your home and help reduce energy bills.
