Insulation is an integral part of your home that often goes overlooked since it typically rests within the attic and behind your walls. Insulating your home makes its environment more pleasant and more energy efficient. Most people don’t often realize that well-maintained insulation can increase the property value of your house.

At Advanced Home Comfort, we provide Dallas insulation repair, replacement, and initial installation on an industry-leading level. We are highly-seasoned and skill with insulation and are ready to help you understand how to identify or resolve insulation problems to increase your home’s property value.

What is Insulation?

Insulation is a material that, when added to your home, provides resistance to airflow and other unwanted outside elements. A properly insulated home or building enjoys a more comfortable environment, better air quality, and reduced heating and cooling costs.

Types of Insulation

We start every Dallas insulation installation project with a thorough Home Insulation Assessment. During the assessment, one of our insulation experts examines the condition of your house’s existing insulation system.

We’ll look at the condition of the insulation, examine any areas needing insulation replacement, and the type of insulation that would best suit your home’s needs. We also look for places where you may need first-time insulation installment if none exists in critical areas of the house.

We offer several options for insulation, customizing our services for your home’s unique needs.

Spray Foam Insulation

One of the most common types of insulation, spray foam, is sprayed into exposed areas of your home, sealing off airflow.

These areas include attics, walls, ceilings in unheated spaces like garages, floors above crawl spaces, cathedral ceilings, basement walls, and between interior walls.

It also reduces the likelihood of mold in homes in damp or humid areas. We provide open-cell and closed-cell foam insulation depending on your home’s unique needs.

Blown-In Insulation

Also referred to as loose-fill insulation, blown-in insulation is a very budget-friendly type of insulation.

It involves blowing materials like cellulose, fiberglass, or mineral wool into spaces in your home that need insulation. Blown-in insulation typically lasts 20-30 years due to cellulose made out of recycled materials or fiberglass, which lasts even longer.

Air Sealing

Air sealing is the process of sealing windows, doors, vents, baseboards, certain outlets, baseboards, and more.

Rather than installing overall insulation, it focuses on these more minor, leaky spots. Air sealing also alleviates the possible formation of ice dams in the winter which can be dangerous and lead to severe structural damage.

Insulation Increases Real Estate Property Value

Adding, repairing, or replacing your insulation is an excellent way to boost your home’s value on the real estate market and make your home more pleasant and energy efficient while you live there.

Insulation installation protects your walls against water damage and the entrance of unwanted outdoor air, which can cause structural issues and massive discomfort inside your home.

Additionally, insulation lowers your energy costs, which is a great benefit your real estate agent can speak to when listing your home on the market or showing it to prospective buyers.

This combination of protection and long-term savings makes your home more appealing, increasing its value.
