What Are The Dangers Of DIY Insulation?

Posted on on October 9th, 2015

iStock_000014025929_MediumMany homeowners love to get their hands on DIY projects.  They’re a great way to save money and they sometimes leave you with a strong sense of accomplishment and pride.  However, there are certain projects that are best left to the professionals — and insulation is one of them.  When handled improperly, not only is insulation ineffective, it can also be dangerous.

Why should you leave insulation to the professionals at Good Life?

  1. There are many types of insulation available.  At Good Life Energy Savers, we use spray foam insulation, loose fill, tri-polymer and blown-in insulation.  Many unknowing homeowners opt for fiberglass – which is both bad for you and bad for the environment.  We can help you determine what type of insulation will offer the best insulating ability for your needs.  Whether you are looking to insulate your attic, your basement, or a retrofitted room, we are here to provide expert advice.
  2. You want to optimize your savings.  If you’re looking to insulate your home, you want it to be done efficiently and correctly.  By hiring a professional, you know that your insulation will be working effectively.
  3. There is less of a clean up.  Our professionals work with insulation every day.  We know how to complete the process neatly and efficiently.  DIY projects can become messy!

Still not convinced?  Give us a call at 203-297-6337.  Our professionals will discuss any concerns you may have about your home insulation and help you determine what the best choice will be for your home.

Customer Reviews

Work Was Done Well
"I got several estimates from several providers. The pricing seemed just ok with those other providers but something seemed off. Good Life came in and made sure that I was getting the correct amount of insulation (where the other service providers had under estimated) and helped me to get into a loan through the utility company for the cost of the insulation. Good life is a qualifying contractor for this and it saved me a lot of out of pocket expense. They came in and did what they had to do. They were professional and made sure the work was done well."
