You wouldn’t believe the number of homes across the length and breadth of this country that are not properly insulated. We were taught in school that heat rises and so when you turn the heating boiler on in your home, the heat will immediately start to rise until it reaches the roof of your property. If your roof is not properly insulated then all of this heat that has been generated and has cost you money to do so, would just disappear into the outside and your boiler has to work twice as hard to heat your home up again. You have probably noticed that you’re paying well over the odds compared to your neighbours who have properly insulated their home. You may feel that you’re only paying a little bit more every single month for your heating but you need to look at this over the long term. It’s likely that you’re going to live in this property for the next 25 to 30 years and when you think about all of the money that you could have saved over this time, it amounts to significant amount of change.
This is why it is so important that you make sure that your property gets the right roof insulation (known as ฉนวนกันความร้อนติดหลังคา in Thai) because it is the difference between a warm home and an efficient home. You may have to spend a little bit of money initially getting your roof space properly insulated but from that point onwards, it will start to pay for itself immediately. If you’re still not convinced of the benefits of properly insulating the roof of your property then maybe the following benefits for doing so can help you to make a smart financial choice.
- It increases the value of your property – This isn’t just money that is being wasted because it will instantly add value to the price of your home in the local housing market. Potential buyers will be more inclined to bid on the home that is properly insulated because it saves them having to do it themselves and spend the money later. There are many other properties out there on the market that have already done the proper insulation and so many they will put a bid on this property rather than yours.
- It protects your family – As a responsible parent it is your job to make sure that your children are kept warm in winter and cool in summer. One way to do that is to make sure that the roof of your property is insulated correctly so that the heat stays in where it should be and it also helps to keep the heat on the outside during the hot times of the year.
It’s a win-win situation for everyone when you properly insulate the roof of your property. Your family gets to enjoy the benefits and you get to enjoy the financial benefits when you eventually sell the property further down the road. It is a smart investment in your future and in your family’s future.
