Insulate Your Largo Rental Home This Fall

Eco-Friendly Insulation in a Largo Rental Home

As the leaves begin to turn and the weather cools, there are a couple repair and maintenance tasks that should be performed on your Largo rental properties before winter. In preparing for the coming cold weather, you must ensure that your rental home is properly insulated. Insulation and weather stripping increase your home’s efficiency and value, protecting it and its tenants from extreme temperatures and high energy costs. A well-insulated rental property is one that keeps your tenants warm and happy throughout winter.

As with other maintenance and repair items concerning the structure of a rental home, insulation and weather stripping shouldn’t be left to the tenants to install, maintain, or change as there is no guarantee that tenants would do a proper job. Certain types of insulation can be dangerous if not properly handled.

As the owner, you could try to insulate your rental home yourself. There are several different techniques that could give good results. Fiberglass insulation comes in rolls and batts, ready to be installed in walls and in the attic. Other types of insulation include blown-in insulation, a loose fill that is blown into attics or walls, and expanding foam insulation, which sprays on like a thin foam but then expands to fill a gap or space around pipes, doors, and windows, and other areas. Then there is weather stripping, which is installed around doors and windows to keep drafts at bay. Every type is designed for use in different sections of the home and requires some specialized equipment and safety gear to install.

Whether it’s your first time insulating your rental properties or replacing old or worn insulation, insulation should be integrated into your property management plan. Existing insulation and weather stripping must be inspected every year for signs of wear, and holes or gaps should be filled before cold weather hits. Waiting until your Largo tenants complain or until the problem has gotten too big to ignore is not a good idea.
