Expert Attic and Crawl Space Insulation Services
The physical separation between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building is called the “building envelope”. It includes air and water resistance, heat resistance, light blockage, and dampens noise transfer. A strong building envelope helps facilitate climate control and protects the environment inside. If the building envelope isn’t strong, any other updates you may make to other systems in the home will automatically lack efficiency. This is because the building envelope is responsible for a huge amount of energy loss if not properly maintained.
Thermodynamics reveals that heat travels to where it is needed. This means that in the winter the heat wants to move outside and in the summers it wants to move inside. Windows and doors are the most expensive item to upgrade. The easiest and least expensive update for this would be caulking and weather-stripping the areas around windows and doors that are most problematic. This DIY solution can provide huge benefits for older homes.
Types of insulation used in Attics, Basements, Crawlspaces
Spray Foam Insulation: Spray foam insulation uses a chemical compound that expands as it’s applied, simultaneously air sealing and insulating the applicated area. There are several varieties of foam insulation, and your home comfort advisor will help you determine the best solution for your needs.
Cellulose Insulation: Cellulose insulation is an environmentally friendly product made from recycled materials and is commonly used to increase R-value of current insulation or to replace old insulation. Cellulose is resistant to fire, pests, and mold, which ensures a long-lasting solution that won’t lose performance over time.
Rigid Foam Insulation: Rigid foam insulation consists of solid boards that have a radiant barrier on at least one side. This material is ideal for the attic ceiling, basement walls, and crawl space walls. Rigid foam is extremely durable, making it a great choice for unfinished spaces in the home.
Aeroseal Air Sealing: Aeroseal is a water-based formula that effectively seals all the holes in your air ducts and vents, making sure your air goes where you need it – not where you don’t. It’s entirely safe and non-toxic, and made with the same ingredients that are used in baby pacifiers and chewing gum. Learn more about Aeroseal.
