How Insulation Helps Keep Your Home Comfortable All Year Long
Installing insulation is essential to keeping any home warm during the cooler months. By insulating your home, you can experience not only warmer indoor temperatures but also sound reduction, lower energy bills and more. Insulation works by stopping the transfer of heat—meaning it helps keep warm air inside during the winter (and cool air inside during the warm months).
In addition to improving interior comfort levels in the winter (and all year long), there are many benefits of insulating your home. Insulating can help:
- Increase energy efficiency: Insulation helps prevent heat loss and increase the efficiency of your household’s HVAC system—meaning your heating and cooling equipment runs more efficiently and is less likely to break down in an untimely manner.
- Muffle sound: Insulation helps reduces noise levels from outside and between other rooms and floors inside. This is especially useful in apartment buildings and other similar housing, where there tends to be less privacy.
- Reduce air leakage: Insulation reduces the amount of warm air leaking to the outdoors, keeping your home warmer and making your heating and cooling system operate more efficiently.

Home Insulation We Install
The Tidewater Insulators team installs various types of insulation in homes, including:
Fiberglass insulation is available as blown-in (loose-fill) or rolls and batts. It can be installed virtually anywhere in your home—walls, the attic, the basement, etc.
Cellulose insulation, which consists of up to 85 percent recycled material, can be considered one of the most environmentally friendly products.
Spray foam insulation is a great type of insulation to use if you need to fill cracks, gaps, crevices or any other small cavity. We use BASF Sprayed Polyurethane Closed Cell Foam.
Radiant barrier insulation is typically installed in attics and can help lower cooling costs by reflecting (rather than absorbing) heat from the sun. You’ll want to install a radiant barrier when it gets warmer in a few months!
