Goettl Technician replacing duct filter

Which Parts of My Home Need Insulation the Most?

Your home heating and air conditioning isn’t working quite as well as you would hope and you dread your monthly utility bills.If this has been going on for quite a while, particularly if a heating or air conditioning technician has determined that there is no issue with your home HVAC system, you may have a different problem on your hands.

Poor insulation is responsible for a variety of heating and cooling problems in homes, but a technician can retrofit areas of the house so that your home becomes more energy efficient and resistant to heat transfer. Here are some of the areas this is most vital.

The Attic

The attic is the area where much of the heat created by your heating unit escapes during the winter, since heat naturally rises. It’s also where heat can gather and make its way back into your home during the summer. The attic is one of the most common areas for homeowners to insulate, but it usually requires a technician’s assistance. Professionals will generally line the attic with batting, or blow in insulation with a special piece of equipment, while sealing vents and ducts during the process.

Insulating Ductwork

The ductwork is another prime location for heat to infiltrate your home during the warmer months. Any heat lingering in unconditioned spaces like the attic or a crawlspace will can enter the ducts and mix with the conditioned air from your AC, then making its way into your living space. And in the winter, heat can move out of the ducts so that little heating enters your home and it takes a long time for your house to fully heat.

In the Walls

Finally, the walls can have insulation retrofitted with blown-in (also known as loose fill) insulation. The only renovation that must be done is making a hole in the wall so that the professional can insert a machine that blows insulating material into place. And these days, there are many different materials you can choose from for insulation. Ask your technician about choosing a material with a high R-value for increased effectiveness.

I called Goettl to get a second opinion on a/c repair options or replacement. Peter Medelez conducted a very thorough system check and confirmed all the same issues previously identified but found an additional issue; tipping the scale to full replacement. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge: answering all our questions and explaining the issues and options. We ultimately chose Goettl for the replacement option due to their price and professionalism.

William and Cameron were knowledgeable, friendly, professional, respectful and put on plastic booties over their shoes when they came into the house. Our pets were comfortable with them and that says a lot. We will definitely ask for them again in the future if our AC has any issues.
