Insulation is a critically important component of your home’s protection. Most homeowners are unaware of the importance of insulation and the cost of tolerating degraded insulation protection. Here are the signs of insufficient insulation that can easily be addressed via spray foam home attic insulation:

  1. Discomfort

    Without insulation, you will likely feel uncomfortable at your home. Either you will feel too cold during winter or too hot in summer since your thermal barrier can't keep heated or cooled air generated by your HVAC system within your living space.

  2. Uneven Temperature

    When you notice that a certain room is constantly much colder or hotter than the other areas of the house, it indicates that your current insulation is insufficient and fails the job.

  3. Spike Energy Charges

    When you have insufficient insulation, your HVAC system is likely constantly turned on to keep your home temperature regulated. You are overspending on energy charges only to have your costly conditioned air seep out through your attic, walls and windows.

  4. Bug Infestation

    Aside from regulating temperature, it keeps small bugs from getting inside your home by completely sealing even tiny holes that can potentially serve as access.

  5. Ice Dams
    Ice dam is a winter household problem that can further create damages to your home. To prevent it from forming on your roof, quality insulation must be installed to keep your attic warm especially during frigid winter months.

Older homes appeal to buyers due to their unfading charm. Sometimes what drives the appeal is a the affordable upfront price. However, sometimes the downside of purchasing an old house is often a late realization. While the exterior and interior structure might appear intact, the concealed damages they acquire overtime won’t be noticed easily during your first visit. Things like holes and cracks in the attic, crawl spaces, windows and doors. If you think they are just minor issues, wait until you get your hands on your first repair bills due to rodent infestations or much more noticeably, utility bill.

Energy loss is a common concern in older homes. Chances are that its attic insulation is worn out and has deteriorated. Fortifying the old insulation is a priority renovation project in older homes.

Most homeowners insulate their homes for the single purpose of thermal control, but did you know that home attic insulation also delivers noise reduction benefits. It can significantly minimize outside noise within the home.

This is particularly true for those residing near the city or other urban areas. Urban dwellers will benefit the most from the soundproofing capability of home insulation. It functions as a barrier that absorbs sound vibrations thus directly controlling the transmission of outside noise into the dwelling. However, not all insulation are effective at delivering noise reduction. Reflective insulation which is installed under the roof has excellent thermal control capabilities but it cannot control noise. Insulation that can be installed in the walls and ceiling such as blanket or batt insulation. blow-in attic insulation, spray foam, and wet spray cellulose are great options with significant sound barrier protections.

If you want your home sound-proof from outside noise and in between rooms, contact Custom Insulation Company, Inc. We can help you choose the right insulation for your home.
