Is Your Home Properly Insulated?

Most homes have some amount of insulation built into them, but there are many places that may have been forgotten. Making sure your home is properly insulated will help prevent heat-loss in the winter and keep your home cool in the summer. Plus, it will help you save money on energy costs and is better for the environment.

 

Properly Insulated

Here are several areas to check for proper insulation:

  • attic
  • basement
  • crawl space
  • exterior walls

In addition, you may want to insulate interior walls, ceilings, and floors for soundproofing and extra energy savings.

Attic Insulation Can Make a Big Difference

Considering that about half of a household’s entire energy bill goes to heating and cooling, and attic insulation is relatively inexpensive, there’s little money to be lost and lots to be gained from insulating your attic. You’ll reduce heating and cooling bills, give your furnace and air conditioner a break, and improve the comfort in your home. For a free home insulation evaluation, call Henges Insulation today.

Attic Insulation

Attic Insulation Greatly Reduces Energy Bills

When we think of insulation, we usually associate it with keeping our home warm in the winter season, but insulation helps just as much in the summer months. Attics can reach sweltering temperatures of up to 150 degrees in the summertime. Having a hot attic and little insulation between it and the rest of your home means that, on a hot day this extreme heat can “leak” into your home through your ceilings.

The decision to insulate your home should never be a difficult one. Insulating your home can be done in the construction phase, the remodeling phase, or really anytime you want to increase your home’s energy efficiency.

If your home is older, it may not have any insulation in the attic. Or if you haven’t added to your insulation in years, it may be compressed and therefore less effective. Either way, you could be losing heating and cooling dollars every single day. Insulation works by trapping little pockets of air that then form an air barrier between the inside and outside temperatures. Because these pockets of air can’t move, they can’t travel through the insulation to transfer their heat. Over time, insulation settles, is introduced to moisture which weighs it down, and may even get walked on occasionally all of which presses these pockets of air out of the insulation making it less effective.

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 provide high quality work on every job. When you are in need of insulation services in Kansas City, MO, give us a call here at Henges Insulation. We have been in business since the 1940s and provide high quality services on every job. Whether the job is big or small, we are here to help Kansas City, MO and the surround areas.

First-Time Homeowner: Insulation 101

Being a firsttime homeowner is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming! Henges Insulation is here to help with tips for first-time homeowners.

First-Time Homeowner: Insulation Facts

First-Time Homeowner: Insulation Facts

Do you know the benefits of insulation? A properly designed and installed insulation system can provide short and long term benefits.  Insulation can help protect your property and save you money. Read more from the National Insulation Association.

Types of Home Insulation:

Spray Foam Insulation:  Spray foam is made from polyurethane – a closed-cell foam that contains low-conductivity gas in its cells. It is excellent at temperature control and also reduces noise. Spray foam insulation comes in two different types:

  1. Open Cell: The tiny cells are not completely closed. It is a very good air barrier but does not provide any type of water vapor barrier. Open cell is less expensive than closed cell. It is usually used for interior walls because it provides sound reduction as well. It is not recommended for outdoor applications.
  2. Closed Cell: This type of spray foam insulation is much denser. It has a smaller, more compact cell structure. It is a very good air barrier as well as a water vapor barrier. It can be used anywhere in the home

Cellulose Insulation: This insulation is plant based. It is usually made from recycled paper that has been treated to be fire resistant. It is sometimes favored over fiberglass insulation because it is environmentally friendly. Cellulose insulation is treated with fire retardants to meet all federal, state, and local fire safety requirements.

Fiberglass: This type of insulation is a man-made mineral fiber constructed from a variety of materials, such as sand and recycled glass. It is the most popular type of insulation used in the U.S.

Batt (Roll or Rolled) Insulation: Batt insulation is simply fiberglass insulation that is attached to craft paper on one side. This facilitates the installation process by making it easier to handle. It is typically rolled which is why some refer to it as roll or rolled insulation.

BIBS (Blow in Blanket) Insulation: BIBS® is a patented insulation system that blows fiberglass insulation into walls, floors, attics and ceilings. The BIBS® system is very effective because the insulation is free of voids and does not deteriorate over time. It is guaranteed against settling. Contractors must undergo intense training and be licensed to install the BIBS® insulation system. At Henges, we will install your blow in blanket insulation according to the manufacturer’s specifications to ensure that you get the most money for your insulation dollar.

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.
