We offer comprehensive insulation services to ensure the walls, attic, and every nook and cranny of your home has the right level of insulation to create a highly energy-efficient environment for you and your family.
Do You Need Wall Insulation?
It can be hard to tell if your walls need insulation since insulation goes behind the surface of the walls and is completely out of sight. However, there are a few key indicators that can help you determine. Older homes built before 1960 likely don’t have any insulation in the walls, while those built before 1990 likely have some insulation but insufficient levels. A new construction home or one that was built in the past few years may have proper insulation in the walls already.
There are also some ways for you to check your wall insulation yourself. These include checking the temperature of your walls with your hand. If it’s ice cold outside and your walls also feel extremely cold, this is a good indicator that you need wall insulation. Another non-invasive way to check involves unscrewing a wall outlet. This can help give you a peek of what’s behind the drywall, and you may be able to see if there’s some insulation in place or not. However, this may not tell you how efficient the wall insulation is or if it’s at a level that is keeping your home properly insulated.
The best way to determine if you need wall insulation is to call the professionals at Frey Construction to perform a thermal imaging consultation. This non-invasive test provides a visual representation of how hot or cold your walls are. It can detect hot spots or cold areas that can show you exactly where more wall insulation may be needed.
