Types of Installation We Can Install For You
There are many kinds of insulation. Each type of insulation has its uses and offers distinct benefits 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 level of resistance to the movement of heat between spaces. You will need to make certain that the kind of insulation you select will get the job done and provide you with the level of comfort you seek.
How Insulation Saves You Money in Washington
Insulation is a never often seen product that can make a huge difference in the comfort level of your living environment. Insulation also has a real return on your insulation investment. The better the insulation and installation, the quicker you will recover your investment in insulation in terms of lower energy bills. You will be supporting the environment by using less energy to heat and cool your house or facility.
How Ventilation Influences Insulation.
The amount of insulation and the quantity of ventilation in a structure should be properly balanced for your house or building to perform optimally. Frequently we observe that ventilation, especially in attics, has been obstructed. Your objective should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system at home or building. We have the ideal testing procedures to figure out if you have any air leaks, blocked vents or other imbalances that affect the performance of your ventilation and insulation system.

Attic Insulation in Tacoma
One of the most important spots of your home or building to insulate correctly is your attic. Insulating an attic correctly will keep warm air from leaking into the living areas in the summer months. It will also prevent heated air from living spaces escaping into an unheated attic in the wintertime. Air movement such as these is the cause of higher energy bills and less comfortable living areas. Because the attic is a huge area, it is generally one of the first spaces where we improve the quality and quantity of insulation present. You will also benefit because your hvac system will not have to work as hard and will last longer.
Insulating a Basement or Crawl Space
The basement and crawl space are two locations that should be checked for adequate insulation. The right kind of insulation will reduce dampness and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation in between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will ensure that your floors are not cold and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also find that spray insulation also can help with insect and rodent control in below grade spaces such as basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Tacoma, WA
The variety of insulation we suggest is dependent on the level of protection 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 best insulation to shut out air and insulate simultaneously. It is a chemical substance that spreads out to fill every crack and is waterproof and pest resistant. There are two types, closed cell and open cell.
Blow-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 similar applications to cellulose insulation. It is a cost-effective insulating product.
For attics, basements and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is a perfect solution. It is a durable insulating choice and is mostly installed in unfinished areas of a house or business buildings.
Many properties don’t have adequate insulation in their wall spaces. In time, batts and loose-fill insulation can sag or get soaked and will lose insulating capacity. We can use different insulation materials to remedy this issue including injection foam, blown fiberglass and spray foam. The variety of insulation material we suggest will depend on how accessible the walls are from the outside.
Tacoma Garage Insulation.
One of the many locations where insulation can enhance the enjoyment of living areas is the garage. Builders neglect insulating a garage correctly to save money on building costs. Energy loss from a poorly insulated garage can stem from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the home into the garage. To improve your house’s comfort and efficiency, call us to help upgrade your garage insulation.
Uninsulated ductwork in the basement, crawl space or attic is a reason for wasted energy and wasted money. We can insulate your duct work with insulated blankets, spray foam insulation or burying attic ducts with blow in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your air ducts will make sure that you are not losing heat in the winter and cooled air in the summer months and making your hvac system work much harder than it needs to.
Insulation For Pipes
