Benefits of Attic Insulation
#1: Healthier Home
With the proper insulation not only can you keep out the cold, but also many insulation types can keep out pests such as mice, insects, as well as being mold resistant. The air quality also tends to improve in your home, so that you can breathe in air that is crisper and drier.

#3: Reclaim a Room
By properly insulating your basement you’re not only removing pests, getting a drier, and a warmer basement, but you are also reclaiming a room in your home. The basement would be as comfortable as your living room, and could be converted into anything you want.
