How well is your house insulated? Insulating a house in all the right places can have a huge impact on energy bills. At a minimum, insulation should be inside walls and in attic spaces. During a home inspection, we can report on the areas that are visible and make estimates of the current R-values and offer suggestions. In an unfinished basement, the rim joist cavities are usually visible. Sections of batted insulation are easy to cut and place in these cavities. Blue jeans and other clothing also work- but it are not as efficient or as common to see.
We are a locally owned home inspection company serving the metro areas of Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska.
