Kinds of Installation We Install
There are several types of insulation. Each type of insulation has its purpose and provides distinct advantages for each location. You will find that insulation comes in a wide range of prices. All insulation is quantified in units called R-values. The higher the R-value the better the resistance to the movement of heat between spaces. You will need to make certain that the variety of insulation you choose will get the job done and provide you with the level of comfort you seek.
How Insulation Saves You Money in Connecticut
Insulation is a never often seen material that can make a significant difference in the quality of your living surroundings. Insulation also has a true return on your insulation costs.

You will be helping the environment by using fewer resources to heat and cool your home or facility.
How Ventilation Impacts Insulation.
The amount of insulation and the quantity of ventilation in a structure needs to be correctly balanced for your house or building to perform optimally. Too often we observe that ventilation, especially in attics, has been clogged. Your objective should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system in your home or building.

Attic Insulation in Bridgeport
One of the most important locations of your home or building to insulate thoroughly is your attic. Insulating an attic correctly will keep heated air from seeping into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent heated air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the cold months. Air movement such as these is the source of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a big place, it is typically one of the first areas where we boost the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also benefit because your hvac system will not need to work as hard and will last longer.
Insulating a Basement or Crawl Space
The basement and crawl space are 2 locations that should be inspected for ample insulation. The ideal type of insulation will minimize dampness and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will ensure that your floors are not chilly and there are no cool spots in your living areas. You will also discover that spray insulation also can help with pest and rodent control in underground spaces like basements.
Varieties Of Insulation Available in Bridgeport, CT
The kind of insulation we suggest depends on the degree of coverage and comfort you need for your home or building. We install 4 different types of insulation: spray insulation, cellulose, blow-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray insulation is the most effective insulation to seal out air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical compound that expands to fill every gap and is waterproof and insect resistant. There are two kinds, closed cell and open cell.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is made from recycled materials. It is used in attics and wall cavities and is resistant to pests and mold. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is blow in fiberglass scraps and has comparable applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal solution. It is a long lasting insulating choice and is mostly installed in unfinished areas of the home or business buildings.
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their wall cavities. In time, batts and loose fill insulation can droop or get wet and will lose insulating capacity. We can easily use various insulation materials to correct this problem including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The type of insulation product we recommend will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outside.
Bridgeport Garage Insulation.
One of the many spots where insulation can enhance the enjoyment of living spaces is the garage. Builders often neglect insulating a garage properly to save on building costs. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can come from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the house into the garage. To boost your house’s comfort and efficiency, phone us to help you upgrade your garage insulation.
Insulating Air Ducts
Uninsulated ductwork in the basement, crawl space or attic is a cause of lost energy and wasted money. We can insulate your ductwork with foil blankets, spray foam or burying attic ducts with blown-in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your duct work will ensure that you are not losing heat in the winter and air-conditioned air in the summer months and making your hvac system work much harder than it needs to.
Improperly insulated water pipes are a cause of wasted water and wasted energy in Bridgeport, Connecticut. You will wait longer for hot water to get to your faucets if your pipes are not insulated correctly. We can suggest the type and size of pipe insulation you will want to get the fastest delivery of hot water and the very best results in terms of energy savings.
