How Electrical Box Insulation Saves You Money

December 20, 2022

You put a lot of love and care into your home. Unfortunately, that usually means putting a lot of additional money into it as well. There are many unforeseen costs when owning or renting a home, and sometimes, making a few small changes can help you significantly. One change to consider is getting electrical box insulation. Here’s how electrical box insulation can save you money.

What Is Electrical Box Insulation?

We generally think of insulation as a form of padding or something to help regulate temperatures and protect our homes. The idea behind insulating an electrical box is roughly the same. Electrical boxes like those in your walls around outlets and light switches don't leave much room for insulation.

However, you may be able to use spray foam insulation to fill in small gaps between the box and wall behind the protective cover or use a thicker foam board as a backing around the box inside the walls.

Prevents Air Leaks

One of the biggest ways that electrical box insulation saves you money is that it works similarly to insulation in any other part of your home. Because many of these boxes are often bare, outlets and light switches are where a surprisingly high amount of heat and air may escape from your home, raising your utility bills. Investing in insulation can reduce the money you spend on heating and cooling, helping you save money in the long run.

Increases Electrical Stability

Another advantage of insulating the electrical boxes in your home is that it helps maintain stability throughout your electrical system. Safe and protected systems require less maintenance and may experience fewer problems over time, lowering the costs of repairs.
