How Do You Know if Your Home is Under-Insulated?

- 11:57 am - October 30th, 2019


As the temperatures in Hampton Roads, Virginia begin to drop, you should start assessing your home’s ability to retain heat and keep cool air out – if you haven’t already, that is! One key factor to the comfort in your home this winter is insulation… so ask yourself, “is my home properly insulated for the cold weather ahead?” Here’s how you can tell!

  • You shouldn’t be freezing in one room and feeling warm in another. If you do, these uneven temperatures are a giveaway that your home is under-insulated.

  • Proper insulation will keep all of the warm air you pay for inside your home. If you notice that your energy bills have been increasing from year to year, that air might be escaping through uninsulated spaces!

  • When drywall and paneling inside the home feels damp or cold, there’s not enough insulation between cold environment outside and the cold walls, floors and ceilings inside.

  • Sometimes not having enough insulation around doors and windows can result in cold drafts in certain areas of the home during the winter months.

  • Without enough insulation, there’s a greater chance for your home to experience problems with frozen pipes – which, if left unattended, could lead to burst pipes and costly water damage.

Are you worried your home isn’t insulated enough? Don’t be! E.T. Lawson knows all about proper insulation and weatherization for protecting your home and family against the bitter cold of a Virginia winter.
