How To Tell If Your Home Is Under Insulated

As an extension of Jay Henges Enterprises Inc., we began installing insulation in the Kansas City area in the early 1940s. We have continued to expand and perfect our services since then. At Henges Insulation & Fireplaces, we know that your home is an important investment. We also recognize your desire to decrease your overall home-ownership costs. We will work with you to find the best insulation for your home. 

How To Tell If Your Home Is Under Insulated

How To Tell If Your Home Is Under Insulated

High Energy Bills:

If you have an efficient heating & cooling system and your windows are in good shape, your insulation is probably the reason for your high energy bills. If your home is poorly insulated, your HVAC system has to work harder to keep your home at a desired temperature. This is because a home that isn’t properly insulated allows heat to seep into your home in the summer and cold air in the winter.

Animals In Your Home:

Insulation helps protect against bugs and insects getting in your home. If mice and bugs can get in, so can the cold or hot air! By adding insulation you can help save money on your utility bill and protect yourself from these unwanted guests.

Inconsistent Temperatures:

Another telltale sign your home needs more insulation is if the upper levels of your home experience more heat and humidity in the summer months. Temperature differences that are 10-15 degrees or more between your lower and upper floors are a sign of poor insulation. Inconsistent temperatures is another issue that can affect how hard your heating and cooling system has to work, which will cost you more money on your energy bills.

Freezing Pipes In The Winter Months:

Frozen pipes in the winter shouldn’t be an issue if you have a properly insulated home. If you experience this problem you are probably lacking insulation in the walls of your home and maybe your attic. Don’t wait too long to fix the issue, or you could have a real mess on your hands that will cost you a lot more money than having insulation installed. 

We will be happy to talk to you further to help you decide which type of insulation is best for your Kansas City home. Our technicians are thoroughly trained, obtain regular re-certifications throughout their careers, and understand the complexity and importance of insulation.

Benefits of a Well-Insulated Attic

Here are the top three reasons to insulate your attic according to the Attic Guys! Head over here to read the entire article.

Well-Insulated Attic

Save Money:

The statistics vary, but some homeowners have reported as much as a 50% savings once their attic has been insulated. How much you save will depend on a multitude of factors, such as the shape of your house and attic, the type of heating in the house, and the climate of the area.

Go Green:

Insulating your attic, according to the Department of Energy, is one of the most important energy-saving projects you can complete in your home. The energy saved with this means less need for energy creation, so power plants won’t need to produce said energy.

Prevent Moisture Problems:

Moisture, ice dams, and condensation can slowly, steadily cause persistent damage in a home, especially on the roof, which can be very expensive to repair. Moisture can also seep inside, and wet insulation is much less effective at keeping in heat.

4 Insulation Facts

Here are 4 Insulation Facts that you need to know! Did you know that about half of the energy we use to heat or cool our homes would leak out without insulation? A poorly insulated home hits homeowners where it hurts the most–their wallets!

Insulation Facts

Insulation Will Pay for Itself 

  • A common excuse people make to avoid adding insulation to their homes is that it is too expensive. In fact, if you want to save money, you should add insulation. When you add insulation to the walls and attic in your house, the expense will pay for itself many times over in reduced heating and cooling costs in subsequent years.

Insulation Helps In The Summer

  • You may be thinking insulation isn’t something to worry about in the warmer months, but insulation does more than keep your home warm in the winter. Insulation also keeps in the cool air, as well as keeps out the sweltering heat.

Insulation Can Help the Environment

  • If the insulation in your home is poor, it is putting extra strain on all the systems and appliances in your home, making them work harder to do their job. This means your home is using more energy than it needs, increasing your carbon footprint. An energy audit can pinpoint the source of your energy issues so that you can reduce the amount of energy your home uses, which not only helps you, but the environment as well.

Call A Professional

  • How effective insulating your home will be depends on the quality of the installation job. If the material used is high quality, but spots are missed during the job, the material will not be able to properly insulate the home as it should. Our friendly professionals here at Henges Insulation and Fireplaces provide high quality work on every job. When you are in need of insulation or fireplace services in Kansas City, MO, give us a call here at Henges Insulation and Fireplaces.

Proper Installation: Why It’s Important

A proper insulation installation is important and will make a difference! A poor insulation installation can lead to hidden costs for builders and poor energy performance with the homes they build. 

Proper Installation

Download this guide from NAIMA to learn why builders should care, the costs of different insulation installation approaches and get a “quality management” checklist to help builders, raters and insulation contractors collaborate to deliver proper, Grade I installations.

The effectiveness of insulation depends more on the quality of installation than the material used. Tests show that a mere four percent gap from poorly installed insulation can cut your insulation’s performance in half! At Henges Insulation & Fireplaces, we understand this. Our field technicians are thoroughly trained, obtain regular re-certifications throughout their careers, and understand the complexity and importance of insulation.
