HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST INSULATION FOR YOUR HOME

 

Insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow and is essential for keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer. A well-insulated and well-designed home provides year-round comfort, cutting cooling and heating bills by up to half. Put money towards your retirement plan, not your outrageous energy bills!

Spray Foam Insulation

The U.S. Department of Energy performed a study that found 40% of the energy loss in a home is through uncontrolled air infiltration and exfiltration – a problem that spray foam insulation addresses by sealing the gaps in your new home.

With properly installed spray foam insulation you can expect:

  • Savings up to 50% on monthly utility bills, when paired with other responsible building components.
  • Overall improved indoor air quality
  • Healthier, dust free homes.
  • Comfortable, draft free homes.
  • Insulation that does not deteriorate or decompose over time.

 

Blown-In Insulation

Blown-in insulation is also referred to as "blow-in" or "blown" insulation. It doesn't really matter which term you use. What DOES matter is the improved energy performance that blown insulation makes possible in any unfinished attic.

According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, most attics aren't adequately insulated.

A typical home is likely to have less than R-20 attic insulation. But throughout most northern states, the DOE recommends that attics in be insulated to R-49 or more.

Radiant Barrier Insulation

How to reduce your cooling bills by insulating your attic properly

  • Roofs get hot in summer, causing attics to heat up, too. Much of that heat radiates into living spaces below. We can keep your attic cool with a radiant barrier.
  • We install radiant barriers in attics and are experts in saving energy through your attic, as well as many other parts of your home.
  • If you've ever gotten into your car after it's been sitting in the summer sun for an hour or so, you know firsthand just how hot the car can get. Leather seats can literally make you jump, and it can take your car's air conditioning quite a while to make the space comfortable again.
  • Why would a car's interior get so much hotter than the air outside? Because of radiant energy from the sun -- solar heat that keeps building up inside of your car.
  • During the summer, the air in your attic can become super heated, just like the air in your car. As the temperatures shoot up to 120, 130, 140 degrees or higher, your home heats up dramatically. This forces your cooling system to work harder than ever. Your electricity use spikes, and you spend a lot more money.
