If you want an easy and cost effective way to reduce your utility bills, fiberglass insulation is the nation’s number one choice. It slows the transfer of heat to keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. And you feel the effects immediately! Call now to find out which types are right for you.
Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation
Finely extruded glass fibers are what give this versatile thermal protection its value. It is a natural product that is completely safe for your home or building. The particles are designed to stay in place and resist moisture and bacteria.
In your attic, walls or basement, it offers a highly effective way to get the most from your energy dollars. In fact, it can save you 30 to 40 percent on your heating and cooling costs!
Glass fibers come in several forms. Call for a free energy inspection of your current home protection and we’ll show you which fiberglass insulation types are right for you.
This tightly-woven yet lightweight matrix comes in convenient rolls or "batts." Each is wide enough to fit standard open areas between joists and wall studs. It is easily cut to fit around areas that don’t fit the common measurements, such as windows, trusses, ductwork and other unique features.
It is very important to hire home insulation professionals to do this job: the dimensions must be as precise as possible, and then edges sealed carefully with a special type of tape. We can also advise you on whether to leave the surface uncovered or “faced” with a vapor barrier. A special fire-resistant surface is also available. Cost, siting, and moisture levels are all factors we consider when we look at your home.
Blown in insulation, also known as loose-fill, this is a finely shredded form of fiberglass. It is perfect for filling wall cavities, oddly-shaped spaces, and horizontal surfaces like unfinished attic floors. Pneumatic machines distribute a steam of fibers through special hoses. The pumping action itself helps to fluff the fibers so they trap heat even more effectively.
The key to a successful installation of this kind is even distribution of the right thickness. This provides the heat transfer resistance – known as R-value – that makes thermal protection work.
Our home insulation technicians take special care to prevent this type of fiberglass insulation from becoming airborne. They will treat your property with respect and ensure the least disruption possible to your activities.
Dense-Pack Wall Insulation
A special type of loose fill is blown or poured inside small holes that are drilled into walls. The fibers can be mixed with a thicker medium to resist settling. We will expertly close up and seal the entry holes when we’re finished. All you will notice is cleaner, more comfortable air.
Combining Insulation Types
Count on us to install the right materials in the right places. It is common to put fiberglass insulation batts in vertical areas and blown in on horizontal surfaces and in walls. Another type – spray foam insulation – is valuable where extra coverage is needed or in particularly hard to reach places such as cathedral ceilings.
We can always remove damaged, old material if needed. And one type of protection can be layered over another in many cases. Unless you have an attic that regularly dips below freezing, it’s best not to put a denser material over a much lighter one: too much compression can decrease the R-value. However, a careful and professional mix and match method of fiberglass insulation, perhaps with some targeted spray foam insulation, can save you a lot of money. Call now and we’ll give you a free estimate.
The good news is any kind of thermal protection is better than what you have now. You don’t know what kind of savings you can be enjoying until you see it for yourself. We have been in this line of work for 50 years, and we guarantee our products, all from top manufacturers. You will likely save about a third or more on your utility bills.
