Better Home Insulation Improves Indoor Air Quality – Here’s How

Nobody wants to have allergens infiltrate their home. Even more importantly, no one wants allergens to linger in their home long after steps have been taken to get rid of them. Is there one single way to get rid of allergens in your home for good? No. Is there something you can do that will have a big impact on the indoor air quality of your home? Yes– home insulation!

When you think of indoor air quality, insulation may not always be the first thing on your mind. Air filters, duct sealing, and even crawlspace encapsulation may come to mind. And, truthfully, all of these things can greatly improve your indoor air quality. But home insulation also provides some great benefits when it comes to cleaner air.

  • Home insulation protects the corners, crevices, and creases of your home to prevent outdoor allergens from entering your home.
  • Home insulation also helps control indoor air quality contaminants by preventing distribution from room to room.
  • Wall insulation can trap mold spores, pollen, dust, and dirt, keeping the air cleaner in the short and long term.

A combination of the right things will ultimately prove the most beneficial for your home when it comes to indoor air quality, but insulation shouldn’t be overlooked.
