The proper amount of insulation is important if your home is to be as energy-efficient as possible. However, it’s just important to have the right type of insulation for your home as well. You basically have three options: blown-in, fiberglass and foam. At Global Efficient Energy we want to ensure you are well informed so you can make the right decision for your needs. Here’s some information on each type to help you make your choice:
This is an effective form of insulation, especially for walls and attics. It doesn’t have the same restrictions as rolled insulation in terms of space and in the way it’s applied, so our Fort Worth technicians can apply as much or as little as needed, and in exactly the right spot. Blown-in insulation is less expensive and wasteful as more conventional methods.
More than nine out of 10 homes in the U.S. use fiberglass, which is good at keeping warm air in your home during the winter and cool air in your home during the summer. it can also help block sounds between living rooms and bedrooms, so if the television in the living room is blaring you will have less of a chance of being disturbed while you’re trying to sleep. It is also non-corrosive, as well as pest and fire-resistant.
Foam is sprayed onto surfaces using a special gun. Once it contacts the surface it expands forming a barrier between that surface and the air that surrounds it. This characteristic makes foam a good choice for insulating ducts, pipes, wall cavities and even the area around outlets. It can be used in just about any space that needs to be protected from the transfer of heat, and it can also last for several years.
