Proper insulation is imperative to your home's energy efficiency, comfort and reasonable heating and cooling costs. Adequate insulation that is properly installed serves as a barrier to prevent cold air from infiltrating the home in winter or keeping cool air inside the house in summer.
New construction does not guarantee adequate insulation, and older homes may not be insulated adequately to maximize on insulation's superior function. In addition to an air barrier, insulation is also great at noise reduction. If you have drafty rooms, cold or hot walls, floors or ceilings, higher than normal energy bills or uneven indoor temperatures, you may need additional insulation.
United Home Services’ insulation technicians can help you determine if your insulation is sufficient. They will explain R-value, different kinds of insulation, potential Energy Star program benefits and what is best for you and your budget.
If your insulation is old or damaged, it won’t perform its function properly and will begin to show a variety of different symptoms. If you notice any of the following signs in your home, you should consider having it inspected by insulation professionals:
• Uneven or unstable indoor temperature
• Frequent drafts of hot or cool air
• Energy bill increase
• Increased allergies or respiratory problems
• Frequent leaks, condensation, or other moisture issues
• Rodent and pest problems
• Insulation appears wet, thin, or damaged
If you notice any of the above symptoms, the certified technicians at United Home Services will gladly perform an insulation inspection in your attic and crawl space. Our insulation experts will look for signs of:
• Water damage
• Air ducts damage
• Mold and mildew
• Pest and rodent infestation
• Old or worn-out insulation
Following the audit, our team will report back to you with their findings and make recommendations for the most affordable and effective solutions.
