A well-insulated home is not only comfortable throughout the seasons, but is also able to maintain low energy costs year-round. Austin winters can get pretty chilly, and summers can be real scorchers. So it is important to make sure your home is properly insulated. At A-Plus Air Conditioning & Home Solutions, we want to help keep you warm in winter and cool in the summer. Our team can evaluate the level of your home’s insulation and if it needs more. We will describe in detail what we feel you need to do in order to bring your home up to Energy Star recommendations.
We offer a variety of insulating methods, including blown-in attic insulation, and rolled batts insulation to keep you and your family comfortable.
For your convenience, we offer flat-rate pricing, customer satisfaction guarantee on all services, and we are open seven days a week.

Providing Better Comfort with Attic Insulation
At A-Plus Air Conditioning & Home Solutions, we promote a whole house concept to reduce your home’s energy costs. Whole-house protection is a holistic idea that combines several types of energy reducing services to achieve optimal savings (insulation is part of that concept):
- Begin with an energy audit
- Repair ducts by sealing or replacing
- Install proper insulation levels
- Weatherize the building envelope
- Test for proper air leakage levels & repair as needed
- Conclude by testing for quality control
Ensuring the correct insulation levels is an important part of the whole house system. The best time to inspect your insulation levels and check your ductwork is when you have a thorough energy audit. When was the last time your ductwork was checked? If you can’t remember, it may be overdue.
Is your furnace more than 15 years old? It may be time for a new furnace installation.
Why Your Home Needs Insulation
Your attic is the most important area in your home to insulate. The better insulated your attic, the less your HVAC system will have to work. It's like wrapping a Yeti Cooler around your home! Call A-Plus Air Conditioning & Home Solutions for an insulation inspection. We’ll measure the amount of insulation in your attic to verify if your home is adequately insulated. Don’t be fooled into thinking you have sufficient insulation because it covers the tops of your ceiling joists. Your home requires at least 12+ inches of insulation. R-38 is the standard for our Austin climate.
