Heating and cooling expenses constitute a large portion of the household’s energy bills. The utility billscan go up or down, depending on the quality of the insulation system.
Thus, the amount and quality of insulation is the key to control energy consumption and utility bills. Here is a short guide of the different insulation types to help you find the best fit for your home:
- Batt Insulation:
Batt insulation provides the dual benefit of economic value and effectiveness. Made of fiberglass, slag wool or natural cotton, Batt insulation provides a long-term solution for all thermal and acoustic fittings. Batt insulation works best when the panels are juxtaposed very tightly, leaving no gaps between them. Depending on the area, the task can be accomplished in a day or two.
- Blown Insulation:
Blowing in cellulose in the attic is another foolproof method of reducing energy bills by 10-20 percent. While many people think that it is a simple do-it-yourself task, the reality is that this grimy and clammy work is best carried out by an expert. If one tiny area is left uncovered, it can compromise the entire installation.Blown insulation is fairly quick to install, and the amount of insulation will determine the cost and final R-Value.
- Pest Control Attic Insulation
Pest Control Attic Insulation entails the use of natural fiber insulation that has the potency to stop pests from entering the attic spaces. This type of insulation is environmental friendly and will benefit any homeowner for the long run, as it is also excellent in reducing energy costs.
