Thinking of installing your own insulation? You’re not alone. There are a variety of resources that illustrate how easy it can be to install insulation. As easy as this may look, when it comes to installing or upgrading home insulation it’s best to hire a professional insulation contractor.
Here are three reasons why hiring a professional insulation contractor is better than installing insulation yourself:
- Installation Quality. If proper installation techniques are not followed, your home’s insulation will not perform properly. A professional insulation contractor knows how to properly install insulation to maximize performance. A professional contractor will install attic venting to ensure proper airflow and can seal air leaks to reduce outside air infiltration.
- Code and Building Science Knowledge. A professional insulation contractor is up to date on local building codes, new insulation technologies, installation methods and more. By hiring a professional insulation contractor you can be sure your home is properly insulated and as energy efficient as possible.
- Safety. A professional insulation contractor is trained to spot hazards such as faulty wiring (including knob and tube), improper insulating around recessed lights and more.
