Insulate Your Moorpark Rental Home This Fall

Eco-Friendly Insulation in a Moorpark Rental HomeAs the weather cools and the leaves start changing, there are specific repairs and maintenance tasks that have to be performed on your Moorpark rental properties before winter. In preparing for the cold weather to come, you have to make sure 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 extreme temperatures and high energy costs. A properly insulated rental home will be able to keep residents warm and happy all winter long.

As with other maintenance and repair items related to the structure of a rental home, insulation and weather stripping shouldn’t be left to the residents to set up, maintain, or replace. There is no guarantee that residents would do a good job. Certain kinds of insulation can be dangerous if not handled properly.

As the owner, you can attempt to insulate your rental home yourself. There are various different methods, all of which are going to provide good results. Fiberglass insulation is offered in rolls and batts, ready to be installed in the attic and in walls. Other types of insulation include blown-in insulation, which is a loose fill that is blown into attics or walls. Expanding foam insulation can be used as well, which sprays on a thin foam that expands to seal a gap or space around pipes, windows and doors, and other areas. Furthermore, weather stripping is used around windows and doors to prevent drafts. Each type is made for use in different sections of the home and necessitates the use of safety gear and certain specialized equipment to install.

Whether insulating your rental homes for the first time or changing old or worn insulation, insulation is something that should be an element of your property management plan. Existing insulation and weather stripping needs to be checked every year for signs of wear, and holes or gaps should be filled before cold weather comes. Waiting until your Moorpark residents complain or until the issue becomes too big to put off is not a smart idea.
