Basics of Home Insulation

Properly insulating and air sealing your home is one of the quickest, easiest, most cost effective steps you can take to reduce your heating and cooling bills and help preserve the environment. The savings on energy bills can provide a quicker return in many cases on the cost of adding or upgrading home insulation than other more costly home improvements.

This section of the website contains information to educate and inform homeowners on the importance of insulating a home, what types of insulation products are available, and where insulation should be installed. It also discusses the added benefits of cellulose insulation, such as better fire retardancy, sound control, and mold resistance.

There are also tips on how to install insulation. Homeowners can handle some insulating projects as DIY jobs. However, CIMAC recommends using a professional insulation contractor to ensure the highest energy efficiency benefits and best performance.
