Type of InsulationWhen it comes to insulation, the term “out of sight, out of mind” applies to a lot of homeowners. Because you don’t see your insulation on any kind of regular basis, it’s pretty easy to ignore it completely. However, doing so can be costing you a great deal of money. If you want your home to be truly energy efficient so that you can save on your bill each month, it’s important that you not only think about insulation, but also look into the right type of insulation for your home. Global Efficient Energy offers several kinds of insulation and we can easily provide you with the one that fits your needs the best.

Fiberglass Insulation

This is comprised of several different kinds of material that include recycled glass as well as sand. It’s by far the most popular type of insulation in the U.S., found in approximately 90 percent of homes. It not only serves as an effective sound barrier, it also helps keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Here are just a few of the other benefits it offers:

  • Affordability
  • Ease of installation
  • Lower energy bills
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Safety

The fiberglass insulation we use is resistant to fire, pests and corrosion and does not contain formaldehyde.

Blown-In Insulation

Blown-in insulation is, in most instances, made of cellulose, which combines mineral fibers with shredded paper. Since it’s not rolled in like the traditional method of installing insulation, it can be applied in whatever amount is needed, and exactly where it is needed. It costs less than most other types of insulation, is fire retardant, and does a very good job of resisting moisture.

Foam Insulation

This is an effective alternative to fiberglass that is applied using a special gun. It can fill cracks or cavities and also be applied around ducts, outlets and pipes – wherever you need to protect a space from heat transfer. Also, it is durable enough to last for decades.

Radiant Barrier Insulation

Radiant barrier is a type of insulation that can substantially reduce your energy bills. It redirects radiant heat instead of absorbing it, helping to keep a lot of the sun’s heat from increasing your indoor temperature. It’s very important, however, that you choose an expert for your installation in order to reap the full benefits.
