Insulation Services

Did you just buy a new house? Does it new insulation, or could it use a good cleaning? Whatever your case may be, we want to provide you with the best service. Our technicians will be ready to come in, evaluate your home, and install new insulation. Of course we can come in and clean up your old one and have it in tip top shape.

You could be losing money without even knowing. If your insulation in the home is not properly secured, it could prevent your home from heating up properly. As a result of it not being secured, your might be also putting the air conditioning on a lot more than you really need to. Give us a call and we will make sure your money doesn’t sneak away through the cracks.

Radiant Insulation

Radiant barriers are installed in homes — usually in attics — primarily to reduce summer heat gain and reduce cooling costs. The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it. They don’t, however, reduce heat conduction like thermal insulation materials.

Radiant barriers are more effective in hot climates than in cool climates, especially when cooling air ducts are located in the attic. Some studies show that radiant barriers can reduce cooling costs 5% to 10% when used in a warm, sunny climate. The reduced heat gain may even allow for a smaller air conditioning system. In cool climates, however, it’s usually more cost-effective to install more thermal insulation than to add a radiant barrier.

Blow Insulation

A better choice is insulation that comes in smaller chunks. The installer, taking his best firefighter pose, holds a large hose and blows the chunks into the attic. A large machine outside churns the chunks and uses air to blow them up through the hose.

The two main choices here are fiberglass and cellulose, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. They both insulate about the same, though, with R-vales in the 3 to 4 per inch range. Cellulose comes from recycled newspapers. Fiberglass comes from what I’ve heard one major fiberglass insulation manufacturer call a ‘rapidly renewable’ resource – sand. It’s a common insulation material that works much better in the blown form than in batts.

Batts Insulation

These are large pieces of insulation that hold together because they’re made of long, interweaving fibers with adhesive binders. The two kinds of batts you’re most likely to encounter are fiberglass and cotton. In terms of their insulating quality, they’re pretty much equivalent. Cotton batts, though, are ‘cool’ because they’re made of recycled blue jeans.

The problem with batts, however, is that they don’t work well because they don’t fill the space well. For the best performance, an insulation material needs to fill the whole space, with no gaps, voids, compression, or incompletely filled areas. Batts are about the worst you can do here.

The cost of electricity for households nearly doubled over the last ten years. From 2001 to 2011, electricity prices rose 87%, according to Ministry of Economic Development figures.

Installing ceiling insulation into an otherwise un-insulated Wellington house (150m2) would pay itself back in four years. And after 20 years, this homeowner would benefit from a net saving of over $3,000, according to BRANZ research.

An un-insulated home uses up to 30% more energy to heat than one with Pink® Batts® insulation installed correctly.

Insulation is one of the smartest investments you can make in your home. It improves your quality of life inside your home and it saves you money.

Benefits of Home Insulation

Besides maximizing energy efficiency and saving you money, home insulation offers a number of benefits. Homes that are well insulated are more comfortable year round, are better for the environment (insulating your home is a great way to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels) and have potentially higher value than homes without enough insulation.

If your home needs more insulation, or if you want to find out why your energy bills are skyrocketing, Comfortable Home Energy Audits can perform an energy audit and install insulation in your home. Contact our insulation contractors today!

Signs Your Home Isn’t Properly Insulated

A professional insulation company or an energy auditing company like Comfortable Home Energy Audits can let you know if you need to install more insulation. However, there are a few ways you can check this for yourself. Signs your home isn’t adequately insulated include:

  • Drafty rooms
  • Walls and floors that are cold to the touch in the winter
  • Uneven temperature from room to room
  • Ice dams (and large icicles) in the winter
  • Outside noises that seem extremely loud
  • Mold growth in the corners, where the ceiling and wall meet
  • Furnace running more than normal in the winter
  • AC running more than normal in the summer
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Melting snow on your roof

If you’ve been experiencing any of these, don’t wait – get your home checked out right away. You’ll be amazed at the difference a properly insulated home can make!
