InsulationWhat Type of Insulation to Use

Insulating a home sufficiently is one of the best steps to take in the pursuit of great efficiency without the sacrifice of comfort. By installing the right amount of insulation in your home, wherever it may be needed, you can prevent the unwanted heat transfer that allows heat to seep out of your home during the winter season, as you run your heater to warm your living space, and that which allows heat to make its way into your home during the summer months, even as you use your air conditioner to cool your residence down.

Remember, though, that using the right type of insulation in Northgate is every bit as integral to successfully insulating your home as using the right amount of insulation is. Here are a few tips from the pros at G&S Heating, Cooling and Electrical, Inc. to help you better understand the types of insulation available, as well as in what situations they are best utilized.

Blanket insulation, including batt and roll options, is among the most common of insulating options. This type of insulation is perfect for fitting into unfinished walls, as well as floors and ceilings. It is fairly inexpensive, but does require a considerable amount of accessibility in order to fit it into applicable spaces. Foam board insulation is another great option for such interior applications. It must be cut to size, though, and requires the same level of accessibility for unfinished spaces.

If you are looking to add insulation to finished areas, such as wall cavities and existing closed walls, then blown-in insulation is a great method to use. Such insulating materials are generally recycled and environmentally friendly, and the method of blowing the insulation into the wall requires little in the way of an access  point. If you are trying to insulate an area with considerable obstructions, this is a smart way to go.

Spray foam insulation is a similarly convenient option for such tricky areas of the home, and is exceptionally well-suited for instances in which insulation that can stand up to very high temperatures is needed. This type of of insulation is sprayed into the area requiring further insulation. The foam expands to fill the space, dries, and hardens. Needless to say, this type of material must be handled by trained professionals.

If you want to boost energy efficiency and comfort levels in your home, then insulating it appropriately is a must. We have the answers and services you need when it comes to insulation in Northgate.
