Wall Insulation Is Like a Blanket for Your Home
Attic insulation will help limit heat transfer in or out of the top of your home, but without effective thermal protection surrounding your house you are still vulnerable to airflow through your walls. Wall insulation serves as a blanket for your home. It helps prevent heat from leaving your home’s interior during the cold winter months and helps block it from entering when your air conditioning is keeping your house cool during the summer. If you notice that the temperature inside is suspiciously similar to the temperature outside and your home has adequate attic insulation, you should consider updating your wall insulation.
There Are Multiple Types of Wall Insulation
Wall insulation is trickier to install because it is often behind drywall and between studs and framing. Therefore, contractors typically install effective wall insulation for all new construction projects. But if your home is older or the insulation is not as efficient as you would like it to be, The Hayes Company can help by installing loose fill insulation into closed walls.
- Blown-in insulation – Also known as loose fill insulation, blown-in insulation uses recycled materials to fill wall insulation voids. The Hayes Company’s insulation contractors use specialized equipment to blow insulation materials into hard-to-reach places behind existing walls. Different types of blown-in insulation are available, such as:
- Fiberglass insulation – This is made of fiberglass and is among the most common form.
- Cellulose insulation – Cellulose comprises recycled paper.
Benefits of Wall Insulation
The benefits of wall insulation extend beyond cost savings from lower energy bills. Homeowners with effective wall insulation also experience consistent temperatures and even distribution of air from their HVAC system. Additional benefits include:
- Noise softening – Wall insulation will help reduce sounds emanating from other rooms or outside of your home.
- Less condensation – With wall insulation, interior walls are less vulnerable to condensation.
- Flexibility – The Hayes Company can help pinpoint areas where you need wall insulation most. The solution does not have to include every wall in your home.
