Why You'll Want To Avoid Over-Insulating Your Home At All Costs
Most homes are designed with attic vents to regulate humidity and temperature. Over-insulating your home can block these vents, leading to moisture buildup and mold accumulation.
This situation poses significant health risks, decreases the energy efficiency of your home, makes it harder to maintain consistent temperatures, and compromises air quality.
Financially, after a certain point, investing in more insulation offers diminishing returns. The cost of purchasing and installing further insulation outweighs the minute benefits.
There are also environmental concerns to consider, primarily stemming from greenhouse gas emissions and the consumption of natural resources associated with insulation production.
