In the spring and summer, many homeowners are looking to sell their home. In most areas of the country, it’s a strong seller’s market, and people are able to sell houses quickly and for a great price.
Are you considering selling your home anytime soon? If so, you might wonder what kind of projects you can do that will add value and improve your own energy savings and comfort while you live there.
While you can spend an endless amount of money making your home “perfect,” a lot of those improvements won’t give you a good return compared to what you spend.
However, there is one improvement that returns you over 107% on the cost. Curious?
Attic Insulation is a Top Value Booster
Being able to get back more than you pay for improvement makes it a must-do. The #1 investment that adds value to your home is attic insulation!
That may seem awfully mundane. After all, the attic isn’t generally a place someone spends time. Why would you want to put so much money into it?
The simple reason is that buyers understand how much it matters in terms of comfort, energy savings, and much more. Take a look at some of the benefits of improving your attic insulation!
Lower Utility Costs
Buyers know that utility costs are a significant portion of the expense of keeping up a home. If someone is a first-time home buyer, they may be especially aware of the increased heating and cooling they can expect.
Even someone who has owned a home in the past, however, will be interested in energy savings and greener living. No matter what, a buyer will be excited to hear that you invested in attic insulation.
Better Air Quality
Poor insulation allows outside air into your home and brings a lot of unwelcome travelers with it. Pollen, dust, and even mold can get into a home when it’s not well insulated. That can cause significant problems for people with allergies – or it can result in someone developing new allergies.
When you insulate the attic, you’ve made a big difference in the air quality by improving one of the largest areas of air exchange. Home buyers can breathe deeper – and so can your family before you sell the home!
It’s no secret that pests love to get into your home through the attic. From insects to rats and mice to birds and more, pests love to get into the attic. They’ll enjoy your home’s warmth and comfort while making noise, leaving droppings, and spreading illness.
To keep them out, insulate the attic. If you use spray foam insulation, you’ll not only get significant energy savings, you’ll close all kinds of holes and access points – even those you don’t see on your own!
Boost Energy Savings and More With Insulation
Improving your home’s value is important if you’re thinking about selling. However, better attic insulation can benefit your family as well.
