Importance of Insulation

Insulation is an unsung hero of home and commercial construction. Proper insulation can save you money on energy costs while keeping your home more comfortable in the process. Before investing into a new or updated heating and cooling system it is important to make sure your building is properly insulated.

Insulation provides many benefits including:

–       Providing protection against heat and cool

–       Reducing noise pollution

–       Increasing energy efficiency

Insulation can be made out of:

–       Cotton

–       Hemp

–       Polyurethane-based foam

–       Fiberglass batting

Insulation is divided into classifications based on an “R” rating. The R-rating system measures how well the insulation prevents the flow of heat in and out of the home. The higher the R-value the better the performance of the insulation.

Most insulation takes place in the roof and walls of the home but can also be in the floor, garage, ceiling and around the water heater or pipes.
