Although it doesn’t get too cold here in the San Antonio, Texas area, now is as good a time as any to think about reducing your energy bills. Have you considered re-insulating your home?
In our experience, installing more insulation in homes (retrofit, or re-insulation, projects) is a great way to help homeowners save money and live more comfortably all year round.
How to Tell if You Need More Insulation
Have you been wondering if you need to re-insulate? There’s a good chance you may, especially if your home isn’t new (a large number of older homes are under-insulated—here in Texas and across the country). But how do you, as the homeowner, know when to install more insulation?
Talking to an insulation company is the best course of action, but there are some signs you can look out for on your own that tell you it may be time to install more insulation in your home.
- Higher than normal energy bills
- Drafts or uneven temperatures from room to room
- Unusually hot second story
- Air conditioner running more than usual
- Ice dams on the roof
The professionals at Installed Building Products San Antonio will be able to tell you whether you need more insulation.
Where to Insulate Your Home
So it’s been determined you need to re-insulate—where in your home should you insulate? Again, a professional will be able to help with this, but generally speaking, insulation is installed in:
- Attics (knee walls, floors, etc.)
- Walls (both interior and exterior)
- Crawl spaces (walls for unventilated spaces; subflooring and floor joists for ventilated ones)
The right insulation solutions can help lower energy bills, improve home comfort and reduce interior and exterior noises. Learn more by visiting NAIMA »
