Attic Insulation in Houston, TX
At Village Plumbing & Air, we take comfort and energy efficiency seriously. A great deal of air and heat can escape through your attic, which is why it’s critical to have high-quality insulation. We specialize in blown-in insulation that can be quickly placed so that your HVAC efficiency will improve immediately.

Our technicians are trained to provide some of the most common types of blown-in attic insulation. These include cellulose insulation, which is made out of recycled paper. It is economically friendly, fire- and insect-resistant, and maintains its integrity over time while providing an R-value of 3.5 to 3.8. Fiberglass insulation, much of which is made of recycled glass, costs less and also has fire-resistant properties. An R-value of around 2.2 to 2.9 per inch makes it sufficiently insulating, depending on where you live. In Houston, this can be enough, especially if you can fit a fair amount of insulation in your attic.

Air Conditioning Repair

Living in the Texas heat is manageable if your home is cool. But extreme heat can strain A/C units until component failure causes serious trouble. When this happens or your unit breaks down, we’ll quickly dispatch technicians to your home. We have crews on-call 24/7 who are trained and equipped to diagnose the underlying cause and make any type of repair on any make, model, or brand of air conditioning unit.

Air Conditioning Repair

Replacing your A/C can be a more cost-effective option over the long run. It can avoid repeated repair visits while a new unit typically operates more efficiently. You can trust our team to properly size your air conditioning system based on a full evaluation of your home.

We also offer a range of options; being a Lennox Premier dealer lets us install high-quality systems and provide repair and replacement services within warranty (non-warrantied systems are fixed as well). A 10-year manufacturer parts warranty is included with A/C replacement. And if your budget is tight, we offer fast and easy financing with 0% interest or $0 payment during the promotional period.

What Is a Ductless Air Conditioner?

Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

We are proud to offer a full range of A/C services in Houston. While central air conditioning systems are common, we know that they’re not the best option for every home. If you’re updating an older home, you may not have the space to fit ductwork and larger components. A ductless heating and cooling system is a way around this, and allows you to achieve the same level of comfort.
A ductless mini split system lets you control the temperature room by room. A traditional A/C system doesn’t offer that luxury. The system is connected to an outdoor unit. It supplies refrigerant to fan and evaporator units located in the air conditioned rooms of your home. You can create a multi-zone system that can be controlled unit by unit without affecting overall system performance and efficiency.
A heat pump works well with a ductless system. It can use ambient heat from the air or ground to provide heating or cooling. While it transfers heat from even relatively cool air outside, it can also move heat away from your home to cool it off in summer.

Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

We can help you realize the benefits of ductless A/C, such as:
  • Simpler Installation: There’s no time involved with installing ductwork, so the system can often be installed in one day, depending on the size of your home.
  • Improved Efficiency: Turn off any unit you’re not using, while variable-speed compressors match demand, saving energy. You also avoid leaky ductwork that reduces efficiency.
  • Personalized Comfort: Each family member can set the temperature to find the optimal comfort level in the room they’re occupying; no more arguments over temperature control!
  • Takes Up Less Space: Ductless A/C units are more compact than window air conditioners and central systems that include large compressor units and extensive ductwork.
  • Air Quality Improvements: The system eliminates ducts that can collect and distribute dirt and particulates. It also has a multi-layer filtration system and dehumidifying capabilities.

Why Install Attic Insulation

Just as warm air can escape your home in winter, it can also be forced in during hot, humid summer days. Blown-in insulation prevents hot air from getting in and forcing your air conditioner to work harder. It’ll fit into the tightest nooks and crannies. All the while, cellulose and fiberglass insulation can reduce condensation and is soundproof. We use the proper blowing equipment to make installation fast and simple and, once we’re done, you may see significant savings on your energy bills. Whether you need insulation removal or new insulation, we’ve got you covered.

Blown-in insulation can be inserted in tighter spaces than traditional rolled-up batt insulation. If you have AC and heater units installed in the attic, it can fill the space between them. Blown-in insulation is just as effective at resisting conductive heat flow as other types of insulation. Borate treatments help deter insects and vermin, which is another advantage to consider. And if you already have a layer of insulation, blown-in attic insulation can be placed on top to improve efficiency even further.

Cost of Blown-In Attic Insulation

There is no one-size fits all cost calculation for blown-in insulation. The overall cost depends on many factors, including where you live, the climate, optimal R-value, size of your attic, and what areas require insulation. Different insulating materials are priced differently. You also need to factor in the cost of labor and use of heavy equipment.
But no matter what the ultimate cost is or the size of your budget, Village Plumbing & Air will always provide a fair and honest quote. We evaluate your home and determine exactly what you need; there are no hidden costs once we get to work. A full inspection can also find air sealing, ventilation, and air quality issues to address and ensure your new insulation is as effective as it can be.
