Older homes have a wonderful aesthetic appeal. The odd staircases and abundant room make for a quirky fascinating place to live. The problem is, that these homes weren’t designed with energy efficiency in mind, and the older your home is, the less efficient it was built. This means drafts, and air leaks that can make for a chilly and expensive winter. All you heated air could be leaking out through these cracks. The solution to this is simply proper insulation for your home. In the past, the only way to re-insulate a home was to rip the walls down, fill in the insulation, and rebuild the wall. Well, this is the 21st century, and innovation in the insulation industry has alleviated that concern. With Four Season’s blown-in insulation we can fill every nook and cranny in your home.
Areas in Need of Insulation
Walls Adjacent to Uninsulated Rooms: There are some areas of the home that simply aren’t insulated, because they didn’t need to be during the time of construction. Many garages and unfinished basements have no insulation at all. This isn’t a huge problem because not many people live or relax in their garage or unfinished basement. However, often times the walls separating these spaces from the rest of your home are uninsulated as well. This, on the other hand, is a problem. All that cold air in your garage or basement is sucking away the heat of your home through your garage!
Attics: As we all know, heat rises. This makes the attic of your home a crucial place for insulation. All that expensive heated air is floating up and seeping out of the top of your home. Many older homes were built with almost no attic insulation and any that was there has long since lived out its usefulness. With fresh fluffy insulation you can effectively put a nice warm hat on head of your home.
