Does your home have enough insulation? Insulation plays a very important role in every home when it comes to comfort and energy efficiency. Unless you were around when your home was built, then you probably know what kind of insulation was used and if high-quality materials are actually installed into your home. If not, proper inspection must be done to ensure that you have a properly insulated home.
There are many types of insulation available for homes – blown-in insulation, radiant barriers, fiberglass insulation, spray foam insulation, and more. Some insulation materials, for instance radiant barriers, are exposed to the naked eye so you know exactly what you have and whether they’re still properly installed. When insulation is installed within walls and ceilings, it can be hard to tell whether they’re still working as efficiently.
