INSULATION

Insulation helps to keep interior temperatures comfortable when it’s unbearably hot or cold outside. Sure, we rely on HVAC units to heat and cool our homes, but insulation also plays an important role by restricting heat movement. Insulation helps to retain heat inside during the cold.

The same insulation makes it more difficult for external heat to travel within on hot summer days. Additionally, insulation makes a building more energy efficient and less expensive to heat and cool.
 

Is it necessary to insulate an existing house or building? We can now inject foam insulation into existing walls with minimum disruption using an infrared camera.
 

According to a research conducted by the US Department of Energy, 40% of energy loss in a home is due to uncontrolled air infiltration and exfiltration - an issue that spray foam insulation tackles by closing the gaps in your home.

Blown Insulation

Blown attic insulation is available in either cellulose or fiberglass. The R-values of both materials are comparable. The blown material acts as a heat blanket for your home.

Benefits

  • Fire Protection: By forming an airtight seal, cellulose and fiberglass lessen the risk of fire.

  • Saves Energy: The blown-in material keeps the inside attic cooler in the summer and prevents heated and cooled air from escaping.

  • Quick and Easy Installation: When professionally placed, the material seals wooden crossbeams, electrical wires, and plumbing lines to form a smooth protective covering.

  • Reduce Condensations: Condensation and moisture can be kept out of your attic using an airtight seal made of blown material.

  • Soundproofing: The blown material forms a tight seal in your attic, dampening interior noise from one room to the next. Outdoor noise is also reduced by the sound buffer.

Foam Insulation

Foam insulation is often composed of a low-density elastomer or polymer in the form of a thermal insulating foam that acts as a thermal barrier around a component or between an interior area and a heat or cold source.

Benefits

  • Lower Energy Bills: Using foam to fill these gaps can reduce your energy expenses by up to 30% while also giving your heater/air conditioner a rest.

  • Pest Replant: Because foam insulation has no components that are appealing to insects or animals, they are unlikely to eat through it. This produces a great barrier that keeps pests at bay.

  • Soundproofing: Sound travels through the cracks and crevices in your walls, as well as around your windows and doors. Sealing the spaces reduces noise and creates a more pleasant living environment.

  • Reduce Condensations: Condensation and moisture can be kept out of your attic using an airtight seal made of foam material.

Batt Insulation

Batt insulation is made of fiberglass or mineral wool (also called rock wool). Initially done on rolls, batt insulation is now manufactured and pre-cut into industry-standard sizes. Batt insulation can be put with or without a facing (called kraft-faced batts).

Benefits

  • Lower Energy Bills: It is very energy efficient when properly placed. According to studies, batt insulation can lower the amount of energy necessary to heat and cool a home by up to 50%.

  • Product and Installation cost: Batt insulation comes in standard sizes (pre-cut), making it simple to install into wall studs, attic rafters, and ceiling joists.

  • Energy Efficiency: When space is restricted, using a high-density product with batt insulation can give much higher energy efficiency. Batts may also help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter with the proper installation technique.

  • R-Value: R-values for fiberglass batt insulation range from R8 to R49, although loose-fill fiberglass may be blown-in with pneumatic equipment to satisfy practically any R-value required.

  • Fire Resistance: Fiberglass insulation, which is made of sand and recycled glass, is intrinsically noncombustible and will stay so for the life of the product.

  • Moisture Resistance: When exposed to moisture, fiberglass insulation neither absorbs nor holds water. If the inert material is not distorted, physically broken apart, or polluted with dirt, it will dry after prolonged moisture exposure and restore its original R-value.
