How Insulation Can Help With Humidity

Insulation contractor installing blown insulationWhen it comes to fighting humidity indoors, most homeowners think of dehumidifiers; however, adequate insulation can play a pivotal role in protecting your indoor environment from excess moisture.

But how does insulation help reduce the effects of humidity — and where is it most effective in combating excess moisture levels?

In this blog post, the insulation experts at Rocket Insulation offer key insights into how insulation can help control humidity levels in your home so you can maintain consistent comfort and energy efficiency.

Reduce the Effects of Humidity With Proper Attic Insulation

As you work to reduce humidity in your home to ensure consistent comfort, one area that should not be overlooked is the attic. Proper attic insulation can go a long way in minimizing high humidity levels indoors; however, it depends on the type of insulation you have.

For instance, closed-cell spray foam insulation works as both an insulation material and a moisture barrier. By contrast, materials like fiberglass and cellulose are more prone to retaining moisture, which can lead to mold and mildew growth over time.

One key aspect of maintaining proper humidity levels indoors is air sealing. While insulation helps prevent unwanted thermal transfer, air sealing is responsible for controlling air movement in the home.

By combining the power of professional air sealing with adequate insulation, you can help keep moisture, humidity, air pollutants and drafts from getting into your home.

Control Humidity & Moisture With Waterproofing

Adding proper insulation to these areas can help control moisture levels. What’s even more impactful for these spaces is professional waterproofing.

Waterproofing services are designed to prevent water intrusion into the lowest points of your home by applying specialized coatings, sealants or membranes to surfaces most vulnerable to moisture penetration.

By combining waterproofing solutions with your attic insulation efforts, you can help maintain optimal humidity levels indoors and prevent mold growth, structural damage and compromised indoor air quality.

Effective waterproofing protects the integrity of your property and creates a drier environment, reducing the risk of humidity-related issues and promoting healthier living conditions.
