Insulation is an important part of every home. It helps protect your home from the elements, safeguards against spikes in energy bills, and keeps your living areas comfortable year-round. Able Home Performance provides reliable home insulation upgrades for homeowners on the South Shore. If you notice any of these four signs that you need to upgrade your home’s insulation, contact us today to book an appointment!

Rising Utility Bills

If you’ve noticed a spike or gradual increase in your energy bills even though your energy usage hasn’t changed, it could be due to poor insulation. When heat and cool air escapes through your insulation, your HVAC system is forced to work overtime to maintain a comfortable temperature. In addition to driving up your energy bills, this also puts unnecessary strain on your HVAC equipment and can lead to breakdowns and expensive repairs.

Hot and Cold Spots Around Your House

Properly installed, effective insulation helps keep all of the indoor areas of your home at a consistent, comfortable temperature. If your rooms are drastically different temperatures or you notice hot and cold spots in different areas of each room, it could be time to update your insulation. The team at Able Home Performance can help you determine the best course of action for your home. Contact us today!

You Notice Pests in Your Home

Have you started sharing your home with some new, pesky roommates? Outdated or ineffective insulation makes it easier for rodents and other pests to find their way inside, and it doesn’t take long for a minor pest problem to become an infestation. Upgrading your home’s insulation can help keep rats, insects, and other undesirable critters outside where they belong.

Drafty Areas Around Your Home

If you can feel a cold draft coming in through your windows or doors when they are closed, your home’s insulation is likely inadequate. Want to test this yourself? Hold a lit candle near the door or window and see if the flame flickers. If it does, you have a draft. In addition to our insulation upgrades, Able Home Performance also offers home air sealing services that can help remedy this issue. Contact us today!
