Insulate Your Temple Rental Home This Fall

Eco-Friendly Insulation in a Temple Rental HomeAs the leaves begin to change and the weather cools, there are a couple of repairs and maintenance tasks that should be taken care of for your Temple rental properties before winter. In setting up for the impending cold weather, you have to ensure that your rental home is properly insulated. Insulation and weather stripping add value and efficiency to a rental home, preventing extreme temperatures and high energy bills. A correctly insulated rental home is going to keep residents warm and happy all winter long.

As with other maintenance and repair tasks related to the structure of a rental home, insulation and weather stripping are not for the residents to set up, replace, or maintain. There is no assurance that residents will do a good job, and certain types of insulation can be harmful if not correctly handled.

As the owner, you can try to insulate your rental property yourself. There are various methods, all of which would yield good results. Fiberglass insulation is available in rolls and batts that are ready to be installed in the attic and in the walls. Other types of insulation include blown-in insulation, a kind of loose fill that is blown into attics or walls. And expanding foam insulation, which sprays on something similar to a thin foam but then it expands to fill a gap or space around pipes, windows and doors, and other areas. And then there is weather stripping, which is used around doors and windows to block drafts. Every type is intended for use in different parts of the home and requires some specialized equipment and safety gear to install.

Whether insulating your rental properties for the first time or changing old or worn insulation, insulation is something that should be included in your property management plan. Existing insulation and weather stripping must be examined annually for signs of wear. Holes or gaps should be filled before the cold weather arrives. Waiting until your Temple residents complain or until the issue is too big to ignore is not a good idea.
