Insulation and Ventilation
Insulation in your home includes rolled insulation that fits between the joists in your attic (the pink stuff), spray-in foam for small gaps, and blown-in insulation made of cellulose that is used for existing walls and hard-to-reach spots. Ventilation includes the vents in the attic that help prevent condensation. Exhaust fans in your bathroom or kitchen and whole-house systems like attic fans and the vents for your furnace and water heater are also part of the home's ventilation system.
Insulation is an important part of keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Without adequate insulation, your heated or cooled air can escape outdoors. Proper ventilation is necessary to prevent moisture buildup and to send toxic gasses from your furnace and water heater safely outside your home.
