Being blessed with the welcoming of a new life in our homes is an exhilarating feeling. All we want to do is to protect and keep it safe as the precious thing it is. A nursery is one of the most important rooms in a home. Newborn babies and children up to the age of 5 can regulate properly their own body temperature.
Children have trouble distinguishing smells and odors, which is one of the main reasons children often have serious life-threatening accidents involving cleaning liquids stored in eye-catching bottles.
The same applies to strong odors such as mold and mildew. Children rarely perceive their musky stench, developing respiratory problems that range from mild to serious. Therefore, alongside making sure the household is “baby-proof” by protecting corners, and making the nursery a warm room, you need to consider proper insulation.
Why is insulation relevant for a nursery?
Insulation provides three major benefits for a nursery or a child’s room:
- It reduces noise
Environmental noises, whether you live in the city or the suburbs, are a constant presence in all of our neighborhoods. Cars that drive by and honk their horns, other children that play outside with noisy toys, and the everyday coming and going of an endless parade of adults are among the most notorious noises that prevent a calm environment for toddlers and small children to sleep and thrive.
Insulation can help reduce any noise that sifts to the child’s room, whether it comes from the outside or comes from within the house itself. This can be a very helpful quality as parents will be able to lead a normal life and elder siblings do not have to tiptoe around the baby’s sleeping times.
To resolve the problem of being alert to whatever the child might need can easily be done simply with the use of a child intercom.
- It reduces energy bills
If your residence is in a cold place or a warm one, most of the time you will have an energy bill that takes care of keeping the inside of your home at a nice, comfortable temperature. By avoiding the change of temperature or the clash of it against the weather outside (through the discrepancy of temperature in walls), you will be able to save money each month.
When you use gas heaters or heat from other combustible sources, you endanger yourself and your family with poisonous gases. These gases are the normal result of combustion, with a properly insulated home, the need to keep heating the home will disappear and with it, the risk of suffering health problems from gas inhalation.
- Prevents the precious resident from mold and mildew
The clash of hot indoor air with the cold temperature of the walls can cause the formation of mold and mildew. This can cause serious health issues with your children. The best way to tackle this problem is to prevent it.
