What Kind Of Insulation Is Used In The Home?
It is a good idea to talk to the agent who is showing the property. They will have information regarding the insulation that is utilized within the home. If they are not sure of the insulation, make sure that to talk to the home inspector. Many home inspectors offer home energy audits. These can help you to understand what areas in the home are efficiently insulated and what areas are not. If the home is insulated with an outdated type of insulation, or if the insulation is moldy, mildewed, or degraded by moisture, the insulation will need to be replaced. Expert assistance is encouraged to help you decide on the best type of insulation to install in place of the old insulation.
