Areas to Properly Insulate
Save energy and money adding insulation today!
Insulation plays a critical role in optimizing the energy performance of your home. The fundamentals of building science are developing new products allowing insulation to play an increasingly important role in whole-house system design. A comprehensive insulation consultation takes into consideration, cost, efficiency, application techniques, and environmental impact.
Thermal energy travels from hot to cold, so we lose heat from inside to outside in cold months and lose our cool in the summer as heat tries to move indoors. Properly installed insulation slows down the transfer of heat. Adding to the thickness of an insulating material, increases R-value, significantly cutting energy transfer. The higher the R-value of the insulation, the more effective the insulation becomes.
Blanket insulation is commonly used insulating walls, floors, and ceilings and is the least expensive insulation.
Loose Fill Insulation
Blown in insulation is commonly used in attics to cover a large amount of spaces and to fill voids and cavities.
Infrared Cameras can detect missing or inadequate insulation. It can also identify hot spots and moisture.
Rigid Foam Board Insulation
Rigid Foam Board insulation is very dense with high R-values. It is best used in limited space applications.
