Kinds of Installation We Install
There are many types of insulation. Each type of insulation has its benefits and offers distinct benefits for each location. You will discover that insulation is available in a wide range of prices. All insulation is quantified in units called R-values. The greater the R-value the greater the resistance to the flow of heat between spaces. You will want to make certain that the type of insulation you select will do the job and provide you with the level of comfort you seek.
How Insulation Saves You Money in Racine
Insulation is a never often seen material that can make a significant difference in the comfort level of your living surroundings. Insulation also has a true payback on your insulation investment. The better the insulation and installation, the faster you will recover your investment in insulation in terms of lower energy bills. You will be supporting the environment when you use fewer resources to heat and cool your home or structure.
How Ventilation Influences Insulation.
The quantity of insulation and the amount of ventilation in a structure needs to be efficiently balanced for your house or structure to function optimally. Too often we see that ventilation, especially in attics, has been blocked. Your objective should be to have a well-functioning ventilation and insulation system at home or building. We have the appropriate testing procedures to determine if you have any air leaks, obstructed vents or other problems that affect the performance of your ventilation and insulation system.

Attic Insulation in Racine
One of the most important locations of your home or building to insulate thoroughly is your attic. Insulating an attic the right way will keep warm air from leaking into the living areas in the summertime. It will also prevent warm air from living spaces seeping into an unheated attic in the cold months. 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 boost 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 inspected for ample insulation. The ideal type of insulation will reduce moisture and drafts in crawl spaces and basements. Installing insulation between basements and crawl spaces and living areas will make sure that your floors are not chilly and there are no cold spots in your living areas. You will also discover that spray insulation also helps with pest and rodent control in below grade spaces like basements.
Types of Insulation Available in Racine, WI
The variety of insulation we suggest depends on the level of coverage and comfort you need for your home or building. We install four different types of insulation: spray insulation, cellulose, blow-in fiberglass and rigid foam insulation.
Spray insulation is the most effective insulation to shut out air and insulate at the same time. It is a chemical compound that spreads out to fill every crack and is water resistant and pest resistant. There are 2 types, closed cell and open cell.
Blow in cellulose insulation is fire resistant and is manufactured from recycled products. It is used in attics and wall cavities and is resistant to pests and mold and mildew. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is blown in fiberglass shreds and has comparable applications to cellulose insulation. It is a very cost-effective insulating material.
For attics, basement walls and crawl spaces, rigid foam insulation with a radiant barrier is an ideal solution. It is a durable insulating option and is mostly used in unfinished areas of a house or commercial buildings.
Many homes don’t have enough insulation in their wall spaces. In time, batts and loose-fill insulation can sag or become wet and will lose their insulating ability. We can use various insulation materials to remedy this problem including injection foam, blown-in fiberglass and spray foam. The type of insulation product we suggest will depend upon how accessible the walls are from the outside.
Racine Garage Insulation.
One of the many spots where insulation can enhance the comfort of living rooms is the garage. Builders neglect insulating a garage correctly to save on building expenses. Energy loss from an inadequately insulated garage can come from the garage ceiling, walls and the access door from the home into the garage. To improve your home’s comfort and efficiency, call us to help upgrade your garage insulation.
Insulating Air Ducts
Uninsulated duct work in the basement, crawl space or attic is a reason for wasted energy and wasted money. We can insulate your ducts with insulated blankets, spray foam or covering up attic ductwork with blown-in insulation. Insulating and sealing off your air ducts will ensure that you are not losing heat in the cold months and cooled air in the summer months and making your hvac system work harder than it has to.
Incorrectly insulated warm water pipes are a cause of wasted water and wasted energy in Racine, Wisconsin. You will wait longer for warm water to reach your faucets if your pipes are not insulated the right way. We can suggest the type and size of pipe insulation you will need to get the fastest delivery of very hot water and the best results for maximum energy savings.
