Though most homeowners don’t give their insulation a second thought until their energy bills skyrocket, it’s actually one of the best ways to maximize your home’s energy efficiency. If your walls aren’t insulated, you could be spending more money than you need to!
Tidewater Insulators can install a variety of types of insulation in your home’s walls, including:
There is no “right” type of insulation specifically for your walls. That said, certain types of insulation have distinct characteristics. Foam insulation, for instance, is superior at filling small cracks and holes (great solution for exterior walls) and covering uneven spacing between floor joists and around wiring, piping and ductwork. Fiberglass insulation is very effective at stopping heat transfer into a colder area (heat leaking out of your warm house into the cold winter air!). And last but not least, cellulose insulation has similar qualities to fiberglass and is great for re-insulating all areas in your home, including the walls.
Insulating (or re-insulating) your walls ensures:
It’s important to make sure your walls, in addition to being insulated properly, are also sealed – air leaks reduce the effectiveness of your insulation!
