How Quality Insulation Adds Value to a New Construction Home

As a homeowner, you want to make sure any improvements you make add value. Proper insulation can do that, especially in Wisconsin, where a well-insulated home is necessary to stay comfortable during the frigid winters.

In this blog post, the experts at Alpine Insulation discuss how ample insulation can make all the difference in your new construction home.

Benefits of Adding Adequate Insulation

Insulation slows the transfer of heat from warmer to cooler areas. It keeps the heat inside in the winter and the hot air outside in the summer.

Adding sufficient insulation to your Wisconsin home can provide these benefits:

  • Greater year-round comfort
  • Reduced energy usage
  • Lower heating and cooling costs
  • Improved air quality
  • Longer HVAC service life
  • Better humidity control
  • A higher selling price
  • Less time on the market

Failure to add enough insulation to your home can make it feel drafty and uncomfortable. Over time, insufficient insulation will lead to higher HVAC and energy costs. That’s why we recommend installing professional insulation before moving into your new home.

Why Buyers Look for Well-Insulated Homes

If you ever sell your home, you may look for ways to increase its value before putting it on the market. New insulation is often a top selling point for potential buyers. A well-insulated home translates to less energy use, longer-lasting HVAC systems, healthier air quality and a quieter, more comfortable home.

Remember that it’s much more difficult to add insulation once the builder finishes your home. While retrofit insulation is an option, it’s best to insulate your property from the beginning. Doing so may also attract more buyers.

Importance of Adding Insulation During the Construction Phase

Unfortunately, retrofitting insulation in an existing home usually isn’t enough to achieve lasting performance and efficiency because the insulation is part of a larger system. For the greatest efficiency and lowest energy costs, the builder must add air-sealed insulation and vapor barriers during construction to create a tight thermal envelope.

It’s critical to achieve a continuous vapor barrier during the build phase instead of waiting until the home is finished. Consider talking to the builder about the insulation options for your new home.
