Watch to learn about the advantages of insulating your walls with dense packed cellulose.
Here's a news flash: In terms of improving home energy performance, wall insulation may be the least of your worries. That's not because wall insulation isn't important —it is—but most homes already have insulated walls.
Extra insulation is easier to add in the basement, crawl space and attic because foundation walls and attic areas are easily accessible. And these areas are the most likely to be uninsulated or very poorly insulated.
During a home energy checkup, Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis will be able to inspect and assess insulation levels throughout the house. If wall insulation is missing or inadequate, there are several options available to remedy this problem.

It's tricky to insulate finished walls. Walls are easy to insulate when the studs are still visible, before wallboard or other finished wall material is installed. Once the wall is finished, it's more difficult to get insulation inside the wall, in the cavities between studs. One technique for insulating finished walls involve drilling access holes near the top of the wall, and blowing cellulose insulation into empty stud cavities.
Air-sealing is the first step. Whether the exterior walls of your home are insulated or not, there's a very affordable way to improve their energy performance along with your comfort. If you can feel some cold air coming into the house around electrical outlets and window trim on a cold winter day, your walls probably need to be air-sealed. This energy upgrade seals the many cracks, gaps and holes where air leakage occurs.
