In today’s article our team here at American Standard Roofing picks up where we left off. This part – II of the article provides great insight into some insulation types and benefits for homeowners.
Insulation & Weather:
Proper insulation benefits are abundant in both winter and summer seasons. Good insulation lowers bills in winters by providing warmth and in summers by not making your air conditioner over work. Proper insulation helps in keeping your home temperature even throughout the year.
Types of Insulation:
There are several types of insulation to choose from. Here are some of the most popular ones that we deal with.
There are further three types of blown-in insulation:
- Mineral woo.
Each type of insulation has a different R-value. This value varies on how deep the insulation is sprayed. Blown-in is a popular option for attics. It is also easy to access cavities. This is because it is simply sprayed in around existing structures. There is no need to cut to fit around chimneys, pipes, and other objects. You do have to have a special machine to spray the insulation in. For this reason we recommend having this done by a professional.
Fiberglass Batts & Blankets:
Batting is probably the easiest insulation to install. It comes in a roll and is simply laid out for insulation. It can be cut to shape so it fits perfectly. This makes it a popular option for homeowners who would like proper insulation benefits and would like to do it themselves.
New construction projects primarily use spray foam. It is however becoming more popular in remodels as well. Insulated area has to be completely accessible in order to complete the installation. Spraying it makes area water and air tight. This type of insulation also requires a special sprayer. Our team recommends a professional contractor for this type of insulation.
