Are you house hunting? We know that the home buying process can seem overwhelming and you may already feel like you have a lot of questions to ask before buying a house. Before you seal the deal and put in that offer, don’t forget about these insulation-related questions to ask before buying a house. We also provide tips on how to best interpret the answers.
1. How old is the house?
If it was built before 1990, its insulation may be insufficient and you may need to install more.
2. What kind of insulation does the house have?
If the insulation is Fiberglass or traditional insulation, is it the original insulation? If so, does the original fiberglass have formaldehyde in it?
3. Is there insulation in the exterior walls?
4. Does it meet current insulation codes?
5. Is the crawl space sealed?
It is so important to upgrade to a sealed crawl space to get the unit and ductwork all inside the envelope.
6. How much insulation is in the attic? Is it spray foam?
It is also just as important to upgrade to spray foam in your attic to get the unit and ductwork all inside the envelope.
