Many American homeowners made home improvements in the past year, with studies stating that people invested more in renovations in 2016 than any time in the past 10 years. However, there is one project that can make a major difference in the comfort and warmth of a home ahead of winter: Installing insulation.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently explained that homeowners ought to get to insulating as soon as possible, as some research has indicated that as much as 90 percent of the houses in this country do not have sufficient insulation. According to the news provider, the golden rule regarding depth of insulation varies between the two most popular forms, with fiberglass necessitating 4 inches of thickness and cellulose-based options requiring at least 6 inches.
Remember, too that insulation is not only useful in crawl spaces and around the exterior of the home, as using the materials on pipes can also make a major difference in protecting against bursts and cracks during extremely cold days.
If you need financial assistance in completing these tasks, speak to your local, community bank about the home improvement financing options available.
