EnerG Shield Home Inspection Services And General Contractor Inc.: Loose-fill Insulation
If you want to be comfortable in your home in San Jose , it is very important that your home has proper thermal insulation. If you have noticed drafts in your home, or it just seems like your insulation is not containing heat the way it should, it may be time to consider replacing your current insulation with something that would be more effective.
The measure of an insulation's ability to restrict the movement of heat is called its R-value, where the R stands for thermal resistance. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation is at stopping heat from moving through your walls, floors, or ceilings. When examining insulation options, the product with the highest R-value is always preferable.
Loose-fill insulation has many advantages over traditional blanket batt insulation. It is a loose, fluffy substance that is blown into the area to be insulated by specialized equipment. Because it is loose, it can be placed in many locations that would be difficult to access with traditional insulation systems. Unfinished attic floors, areas around ductwork, and any other awkward to reach places are perfect locations for loose-fill insulation. It is also a perfect solution for adding insulation between finished walls, because it is not necessary to tear the walls down to install. A series of easily-repaired small holes are drilled in the wall, and the loose-fill is blown in through them.
Because it is relatively easy to install, Loose-fill is increasingly the insulation of choice in San Jose . If you have a finished home but need to add new insulation, consider loose-fill.
