Re-insulating your home is one of the best ways to maximize energy efficiency and gain long-term savings. Although many homes today have enough insulation, older homes built in the 1970s or earlier most likely aren’t insulated enough. In these cases, a professional can install more insulation.

Re-insulation, or retrofit insulation, can make your home more energy-efficient, helping you stay more comfortable and save money year after year. It’s doesn’t refer to a particular type of insulation—the same materials that are used for new construction insulation can be used for re-insulating:

The type of insulation you’ll install will depend on a few different factors—where you need to insulate (attic, basement, exterior walls, etc.), the type of HVAC system you have, the age of your home and more. A professional insulation company will tell you what material you need, where you need to insulate and how much insulation your home needs.

Do You Need to Re-Insulate Your Home?

Generally, speaking to an insulation company is the best way to determine if your home needs more insulation. Still, there are certain signs you can look out for on your own that indicate you may need more insulation:

  • The age of your home
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Uncomfortable drafts in your home
  • Uneven temperatures from room to room
  • The AC running more than normal
  • Snow melting off the roof too quickly and/or ice dams forming

These aren’t all the signs, but they are common ones that homeowners can pretty easily detect.
