WHICH INSULATION DO YOU NEED?
The secret to saving money on your energy bills is simple. Keep the air you’ve paid to heat or cool inside of your home. In southern Mississippi we typically use 3 types of insulations: batt, blown-in, spray foam. However only one kind of insulation creates an air-tight seal in your floors, walls and ceilings. This insulation is known as spray foam insulation and it is as revolutionary as insulation gets.
Batt and blown-in insulation are measured with an R-value. An R-value indicates an insulation’s resistance to heat flow. The “R” in R-value means “resistance”. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. The R-value depends on its material, thickness, and density.
Installing more insulation in your home increases the R-value and the resistance to heat flow. The amount of insulation or R-value you’ll need depends on your climate, type of heating and cooling system, and the section of the house you plan to insulate.
The type of insulation that is best for the customer depends on the performance they want and the budget for the installation. For new construction, many home owners and contractors opt for spray foam on exterior walls/attic and batt on the interior walls. We can create a plan that’s right for you!
