Why should you install new insulation?
Weather and temperature changes occur frequently in Canada, making it very important to have a properly insulated and a well-ventilated home. Cold walls and floors, signs of mould, or ice buildup on your roof are clear indicators that the insulation in your home needs an upgrade. At the Home Depot, our Installation Experts ensure the proper and professional installation of long-lasting, loose-fill blown-in insulation, which can help save up to 20%* on your heating and cooling costs, reduce noise levels and stabilize temperature fluctuations. Proper insulation also reduces drafts and creates the right environment for your furnace and air conditioner to operate at peak efficiency, so your home is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
