4 ways to tell your home insulation needs to be replaced.March 13, 2020
Like it or not, winter is barreling at us at a breakneck speed. Chances are you’ve already scraped frost off of your car’s windshield and bitten the bullet and turned on your furnace.
What about the insulation in your home? Have you investigated where there are areas that could use improvement. Taking steps to keep your home warmer will likely cut down on your energy bills and will for sure make the folks in your home more comfortable!
We have some tips for maximizing the comfort your home:
Keep your HVAC system maintained.
I think that this seems like a no brainer, but making sure that your air filters are changed on a regular basis as well as making sure that you have your furnace checked and routine maintenance done is incredibly important. Plus, it is always a good idea to keep up with the yearly maintenance to hopefully avoid costly repair bills when an issue sneaks up on you.
Seal Leaky Windows
Often times the biggest culprit of your home being chilly during the cold weather, has to do with your windows. The lack of a tight seal on your windows can cause heat to escape and cold air to take over. Usually a weather stripping will do the trick when it comes to eliminating the draft issue.
Insulate your water heater
We know this sounds totally crazy, but a water heater that isn’t insulated can use a lot of energy resources. You can purchase a water heater ‘jacket’ from your local home improvement store.
Upgrade your existing insulation
Of course we are a bit biased when it comes to this tip, but we also find it to be the most effective. Just because you are past the building stage when it comes to your home, doesn’t mean that you are locked into the same, insulation forever. At Builders’ Insulation we have a wide variety of options that will allow you to upgrade from the standard builders grade insulation that you likely have.
