Retrofit Insulation in Nederland & Beaumont, TX

While many people tend to think of insulation as something that’s only installed in new homes, many homes need re-insulation after a number of years. If you’ve noticed uneven temperatures or higher energy bills when there’s nothing wrong with your HVAC system, there’s a chance your insulation isn’t working the way it’s supposed to.

Do You Need to Re-Insulate Your Home?

Generally, speaking to an insulation company is the best way to determine if your home needs more insulation, but there are certain signs you can look out for on your own that indicate you may need more insulation:

  • Age of your home (10 years+)
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Uncomfortable drafts in your home
  • Uneven temperatures from room to room
  • AC running more than normal
  • Snow melting off the roof too quickly and/or ice dams forming

 

These aren’t all the signs, but they are common ones that homeowners can pretty easily detect.

Types of Insulation for Retrofit Projects

The team at Parker Insulation improves the energy efficiency, comfort and value of homes throughout the upstate New York area. There are several options when it comes to replacing the insulation in your home. We install the most popular options, including:

  • Spray foam: Typically made of polyurethane, spray foam is applied wet and expands into thick foam. Spray foam insulation can be installed in crevices and hard-to-reach areas and can help reduce air infiltration.
  • Fiberglass (batts and blown-in): Fiberglass, which has been used to insulate homes for decades, is available as loose-fill/blown-in or batts. Fiberglass is made of tiny glass fibers and is often installed in attics but can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well.
  • Cellulose: Cellulose is environmentally friendly—it consists of up to 85 percent recycled material and takes less energy to make than other insulation materials—and can be installed in any area of a home.

 

Where Can You Re-Insulate Your Home?

Although you can add insulation to almost any area of your home where you want to improve energy efficiency, some of the most common areas people in the Nederland and Beaumont areas want to insulate include:

  • Attics: Attics contribute to some of the highest amounts of energy loss in the home. Proper insulation can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort.
  • Walls: Don’t let your conditioned air escape through the walls or near the windows and doors. The experts at MIG Building Systems can help you insulate the walls to make your home more comfortable.
  • Crawl spaces: Crawl spaces are another common area of heat loss in a home. We can help you seal any gaps in your insulation.
  • Basements: Even if you don’t use your basement as a living space, it’s important to insulate it so that energy doesn’t escape through basement walls.
