WALL INSULATION AND BLOWN IN INSULATION

Numerous materials can be used. Wall insulation entails a lot of detail that must be understood for energy-efficient and comfortable living space. Once walls are insulated it contributes to the management of indoor temperature, saves power use, and creates an effective home. 

LET THE EXPERTS HANDLE IT

TYPES OF WALL INSULATION

Wall insulation increases thermal and acoustic insulation which results in more affordable energy bills and an optimal living environment. 

BLOWN IN INSULATION

Blown-in insulation is a method of insulating walls that involves blowing Cellulose into wall cavities through holes 1-2 ½ inches wide. This is the preferred method for insulating existing, closed-up walls, as it offers a far easier method of improving the R-value of walls than installing fiberglass batts.

BATT INSULATION

Batt insulation is fitted between the studs of an exterior wall. Some products are available with a facing including kraft paper vinyl, or foil which will provide an additional air or vapor barrier. 

TWO MAIN TYPES OF BLOWN-IN INSULATION

  • Cellulose

Cellulose insulation is made of recycled paper and has an R-value of 3.5-.38

  • Loose-Fill Fiberglass

Fiberglass insulation has an R-value of 2.2-2.69 per inch, meaning you will need more fiberglass insulation to get the same effects of cellulose.

BATT INSULATION PRODUCTS

The most common type of batt insulation is fiberglass, but other materials can include mineral rock or slag wool.

  • Fiberglass Batt

 Made of fibrous glass wool encased by an outer layer made from paper, plastic, metal, or other textile materials. They come in pre-cut sections and come in different thicknesses and widths. 

  • Mineral Wool

This type of insulation is fire and water-resistant.  Mineral wool can withstand extreme heat better than any other type of insulation. This gives your home better protection against flame spread. Also, mineral wool does not absorb water, which means it will stay intact even when wet.  

EXTERIOR WALLS

For exterior walls, we use Owens Corning fiberglass insulation. It’s a formaldehyde-free insulation that works well on exterior walls. Installing insulation in exterior walls also requires drilling two-inch holes. If your exterior walls have siding, we’ll need to remove a row of it to access the plywood.

Once we’ve installed the insulation, we’ll cover the holes with a wooden or foam plug. If we’ve needed to remove siding, we’ll put it back in place.

INTERIOR WALLS

Internal wall insulation has more than one advantage. If you choose to insulate your interior walls it can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, making it easier to maintain temperatures in your home which will put less stress on your HVAC system. 

Interior wall insulation can potentially reduce noise from room to room by creating essentially a barrier between each room that is insulated.

fOAM BOARD

Rigid foam board has relatively high insulation value and flexibility. It is light, solid, and usable with different wall surfaces. Foam board insulation offers a very good R-value which makes it suitable for residential or even commercial purposes. It has a high thermal insulating property for its thickness and can be appropriate where there is a lack of space.  

EXTERIOR WALL INSULATION PRODUCTS

There are many different types of insulation you can use when you renovate or upgrade your home’s exterior walls. Exterior walls can either be insulated with insulation blankets and pre-cut batts or blown-in.

  • Unfaced or faced fiberglass insulation

  • Regular or high-density fiberglass batts

  • Rigid foam board

  • Spray foam up to two inches thick

  • Blown-in cellulose

  • Blown-in fiberglass

  • Roxul (a fireproof and water-repellent insulation solution)

INTERIOR WALL INSULATION PRODUCTS

For interior walls, the products we use are batts made from materials such as fiberglass or mineral wool. 

  • Rigid Foam Board

Foam boards and rigid foam boards reduce the amount of heat conducted through the wood, wall studs, and other elements that make up a home’s structure.

  • Fiberglass Batts

Fiberglass batts are the most cost-effective. However, they must be installed properly to avoid small gaps that can reduce efficiency as much as 25 percent.

  • Rockwool

Rockwoll is more expensive than fiberglass and typically comes in rolls of batts that are pre-cut. Providing up to R-3.3 per inch of thickness.

Wall insulation has many benefits , below are the benefits of wall insulation. 

Get Excited to save energy

should you insulate your walls?

1

energy efficiency

Wall insulation is effective at temperature control, it will help maintain stable indoor temperatures, which will reduce your need to crank up the heating or cooling. 

2

noise reduction

Although not always the case, wall insulation can control noise. Insulation can dampen the sound waves, particularly high-frequency sound waves, which can decrease the level of noise that passes through the walls from one room to the next. 

3

fire protection

If a fire starts in your home, fire-resistant wall insulation can slow the spread of flames, keeping the fire contained to a smaller area so you have more time to get out of your home. It can also protect your home from more extensive damage. 

4

moisture control

Depending on the location of the wall and the climate, you might be able to benefit from adding a vapor control layer. Good interior wall insulation reduces the risk of moisture problems by slowing heat transfer in your home and regulating temperature.
