Insulation For Homeowners

Oct 04, 2019

Insulation for homeowners is essential in order to maintain energy efficiency and comfort at home. Insulation keeps warm air in and cold air out during the colder seasons and vice versa during the warmer seasons. This not only allows for stable temperatures in your home, it keeps home equipment such as heaters and HVAC systems from having to work too hard, saving you money on energy costs. At Energy Saving Pros, we specialize in the use of several types of installed insulation.

Attic Insulation Removal & Air Sealing

Attic insulation removal & air sealing can decrease the amount of dust in your home by 30-50%. The air that is circulated in your household is greatly affected by the air from your attic. This method reduces the amount of dust you have to deal with when cleaning and the amount you breathe in. The decrease in dust also improves the energy efficiency of your air conditioner.

Polyurethane Spray Foam

Polyurethane spray foam is a great product that is effective through every season and able to be applied to areas that are more difficult to reach. The foam is wet when first applied, but it sets quickly and becomes thicker as it dries and expands. This makes it useful for sealing small gaps and reducing your foreign air intake. Another handy feature is that it can be used to create a moisture barrier.

Blown-in Fiberglass

Blown-in fiberglass insulation is one of the most common forms of insulation utilized in homes and is relatively inexpensive. This insulation consists mostly of plastic material, which has a similar texture and feel to cotton-candy, but it also contains very fine glass fibers which add to its structural strength and insulation capabilities. In most homes, it is primarily installed in attics but it can also be useful in other areas of a home such as exterior walls. We always air seal after installing fiberglass to ensure a high quality insulation.
