Many people that insulate their homes today do it on their own without professional helpin order to save on expense but even if they did get a professional to install the insulation for them, they would still recoup all their money from the savings they would make in future energy bills. If our house is not adequately insulated, the house gets cold in the winter unless we pay high costs for heating and similarly, in the summer, our house gets extremely hot unless we pay to cool it in some way. When a house is insulated, it helps to maintain the temperature in the house, making it more comfortable and often needing no additional heating or cooling. This means that our energy bills are greatly reduced and the money we save from that, will more than pay for the initial installation of the insulation over just a few months. For the best savings though, the insulation must be installed correctly and apart from installing the insulation in the roof, walls and floor, for the best energy savings, you should also replace any windows and doors that are on your house, which are not energy efficient, with ones that are.
Some points you may want to remember in order to make your house as well insulated as possible are. As well as insulating the roof, you will also have to insulate the ceiling and the attic if you have one. Even if there is not an attic, there is probably a space between the roof and the ceiling and that will need to be insulated. When measuring the external walls, remember to include any that separate a garage or shed from the house as, if the garage or shed are not fully insulated, those walls are exterior ones. Some materials are especially designed for insulating basements although general purpose insulation can also be used but if there are crawl ways under the house instead of a basement, they need to be insulated as well as anywhere else. Many houses are built on foundation walls and sometimes those foundation walls can be seen above the ground, supporting the house. If this is the case with your house, you will also have to insulate the parts of the foundation walls that can be seen above the ground.
