Insulation Installation & Inspection Fort Worth, TX
In Texas, building codes require a minimum of R-30 rating for your insulation, while the recommendation is R-49. The R-value refers to insulation’s ability to resist heat flow. To maintain competitive pricing, many builders only offer the minimum for housing. This can lead to high energy consumption, especially in the Fort Worth area where it remains hot for many months out of the year.
Sufficient insulation is crucial to protect your home from high energy bills as well as uncomfortable temperatures. Our Fort Worth air conditioning experts provide inspections to see if your home needs any more insulation. From there, our technicians will recommend the best and most cost efficient plan for you. Insulation often pays for itself with the energy savings you’ll see.
Insulation in Summer
Texas heat can greatly increase the temperature of your home. Roofs and walls tend to absorb the heat, forcing the air conditioner to work harder to cool the house. Without proper insulation, unnecessary wear and tear can significantly decrease the life of your AC system as well as raise your energy bills. Insulation puts a barrier between the heat and your home so that it stays cooler naturally.
Insulation in Winter
Heat escapes from your home through tiny cracks in the interior, leading to cold drafts. This could make your heater run non-stop and leave you with an outrageous heating bill. Insulation lowers your home’s demand for heat by keeping some of the heat from escaping.
