Insulate Your Cypress Rental Home This Fall

Eco-Friendly Insulation in a Cypress Rental HomeAs the weather cools and the leaves begin turning, there are certain repairs and maintenance tasks for your Cypress rental properties that have to be done before winter. Part of preparing for the coming cold weather is making certain that your rental home is properly insulated. Insulation and weather stripping add value and efficiency to a rental home, protecting it and its residents from high energy expenses and extreme temperatures. A properly insulated rental home is one that will keep residents warm and happy the entire winter.

As with other maintenance and repair responsibilities related to the structure of a rental property, insulation and weather stripping should not be left to the residents to install, maintain, or replace. There is no guarantee that residents are going to do a proper job. Also, using certain types of insulation can be hazardous if not handled properly.

As the owner, you could try to insulate your rental home yourself. There are numerous methods that will provide good results. Fiberglass insulation comes in rolls and batts that are ready for installation in walls and in the attic. Other types of insulation include blown-in insulation, which is a kind of loose fill blown into attics or walls. There is an expanding foam insulation as well, which sprays something like a thin foam but then it expands to fill a gap or space around pipes, windows and doors, and various other spots. And of course, weather stripping is used around doors and windows to prevent drafts. Every option is intended for use in different areas of the home and needs safety gear and some specialized equipment to install.

Whether it’s your first time insulating your rental properties or replacing old or worn insulation, insulation should be part of your property management plan. Existing insulation and weather stripping must be assessed yearly for signs of wear. Holes or gaps should be filled before cold weather arrives. Putting it off until your Cypress residents complain or until the problem gets too big to ignore is not a good idea.
