Insulation FAQ's

Making Waco and Central Texas more Energy-Efficient!

"How do I benefit by having proper insulation?"

There are at least 3 important benefits:

  1. Lower utility bills significantly. It usually pays for itself in the 1st year.
  2. Your home will be more comfortable and evenly heated and cooled all year long.
  3. Your central air system will last longer because it doesn't run as often.

"What is foam insulation and how is it different from fiberglass?"

Expansion foam is sprayed on the ceiling of your attic and all attic ventilation is sealed shut. While effective, this method is much more costly (usually several thousand dollars) than fiberglass insulation. We don't offer foam. Our customers enjoy excellent thermo protection and save money, plus the return on investment is years faster!


"Will Think Home Insulation vacuum my attic?"

Yes, if you need to. Normally, we blow on top of the old insulation unless it is smelly or dirty. Sometimes rodents can cause these problems. We have specialized equipment to remove old insulation and dispose of it at a landfill.


"What about other options like radiant barrier or cellulose insulation?"

Radiant barrier has certian limitations that may make it not the best solution. For starters, it is difficult to install properly and therefore, the labor is expensive. Also, it can cause the roof shingles to deteriorate faster because the attic heat is reflected back underneath the roof and virtually bakes them. Celullose is nothing more than shredded newspapers. That's right! It does insulate well, for a while. Over time it will compress and lose it's R-value. Also it will become excessively dusty as the paper rots. Fire is another hazard, even though retardant is added.


"How much insulation should I have?"

With fiberglass it is recommended to have around 13" to achieve an R-38 level of protection. R-38 is the level of insulatin resistance to heat that is required for new constructin in our area. If your rafters are showing on the floor of the attic, you likely need more insulation.


"Can Think Home Insulation do walls?"

Yes, in fact we have done many different types of houses and buildings. Sometimes the customer wants more sound proofing. Sometimes it is to thermo seal the outside walls. Call us for more information about your situation.
