New insulation also increases the market value of your property. It’s a win/win situation for everyone.
Unfortunately, many of our older homes in Texas lack adequate insulation. Heat escapes in the winter and seeps in during the summer, driving up your utility bills. Insulation adds a protective barrier to prevent heat from leaving or entering your home.
Insulation works with your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to create a warm and welcoming environment. Improve the insulation in your home—call Walker Heating & Cooling for a free consultation.

Is Blown-In Insulation Worth It?
Blown-in insulation is one of the best ways to make an existing home more energy efficient. By filling empty walls and attic spaces with insulation, a home can hold on to its conditioned air longer, resulting in potentially less energy use.
What Is the R-Value?
The R-value indicates how well insulation material can reduce heat flow between the inside and outside of your home. For example, the value R-30 means it takes approximately 30 minutes for the heat to radiate through that insulation. The greater the R-value, the more the heat flow is reduced.
When Should I Replace My Insulation?
Older homes have a lot of charm and character—but can often feel drafty. Prior to 1980, building codes for home insulation were practically nonexistent. Here are a few telltale signs that adding new insulation will help:
- Rooms feel hot and stuffy in the summer
- You feel drafts in some rooms
- Your furnace runs nonstop in the winter
- Your allergies flare up inside your home
- Your` current crawl space insulation is old, dirty, and sagging
- Moisture, mold, and mildew Problems
- Spiking utility bills
- Problems with rats, mice, or other pests
Do you have ice dams in the winter? These can be pretty serious as they can cause damage to your roof. Ice dams form when the warm air from your home leaks into the attic and heats the roof. When the ice melts and runs down your roof, it forms a frozen dam at your overhang.
If your existing attic insulation has sagged or shifted, it’s time for an upgrade. ENERGY STAR® recommends adding more insulation if your insulation is level or below your floor joists.
