Insulation plays a critical role in keeping homes and buildings comfortable, energy efficient and your electric bills low. Having the right type, properly installed and the correct amount of insulation is very important.
Insulation is essential for maintaining a comfortable and consistent temperature within a home. It acts as a barrier against heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. With proper insulation, homeowners can reduce their energy bills by up to 50%, making it an excellent investment for any household.
There are many different types of insulation available for homes, including fiberglass batts, cellulose, spray foam, and rigid foam board. Each type has its advantages and is suitable for different areas of the home. For example, fiberglass batts are commonly used in walls and attics, while spray foam is ideal for sealing air leaks.
Insulation is not limited to just homes; it is also crucial for commercial buildings, such as office complexes and retail spaces. In fact, commercial buildings account for nearly 20-25% of all energy use in the United States. Having the proper amount and type of insulation can reduce this energy consumption and lower operating costs for building owners.
When it comes to building insulation, there are many options to choose from, including batts, blown-in fiberglass or cellulose, rigid foam board, and spray foam. Each type has its unique properties, making them suitable for different areas of a building. For example, batts are commonly used in wall cavities, while spray foam is ideal for sealing gaps and cracks.
We especially love working with apartment building management companies and owners. We have re-insulated dozens on apartment complexes and thousands of individual units.
For apartment building insulation, blown-in insulation is the most commonly used option and the attic is the most common area to address for energy loss.
Apartment buildings are a great challenge for us as we need to be cognizant of each resident, be a discreet as possible and tenant engagement is really important. I am personally on each apartment building job to make sure everything goes smooth.
