Your A/C and Heating Connection: Insulation DIY?

9 Oct

A few weeks ago, we started our talk on the topic of insulation. We began with words of warning and pictures to help you know where you stand. Last week we talked about R-Values and insulation types, and now it’s time to get started.

So, now you know insulation basics in case your attic is losing its efficiency. You know the standard R-Value for your home, and you know types of insulation on the market. The question is: should you do replace the insulation yourself?

When it comes to DIY construction, be careful. Depending on your experience level and the project at hand, you could cost yourself more in the long run than having it professionally completed from the start.

For those DIY contenders, blanketed insulation is the easiest kind to install on your own. However, you want to make sure you get the right R-Value and that you’re filling an unobstructed, standard area. If you have any doubt about these two things and/or your experience level, do not try to do it yourself. If you’re looking for professional advice, don’t hesitate and send a shout our way.

Your safety is the number one concern. Also, don’t forget that the goal of insulation replacement is to raise efficiency levels and save you money over time. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you’re ready to take the next step and get your home accurately insulated, give us a call!

Keep cool and informed,
