Did you know that most homes built before 1980 have no attic insulation? Your cooling and heating are escaping out of your house, and costing you money..

 There are many benefits of home insulation. Insulating your home will add to your comfort, create a healthier home environment, reduce your energy bills and have a positive environmental impact.

Benefits of Insulation:

  • Become much more energy efficient.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Savings on your monthly electricity bill.
  • Reduced noise from outside.

Loose fill:

Insulation fibers are packaged in bags and blown in place to the desired depth and density using special machinery you can rent from a home center. You can pour the fill in place and spread it manually, but the process is much more labor-intensive and the results won’t be nearly as good

Batts:

This flexible insulation material is most often packaged in rolls that come in various thicknesses and standard widths, usually 16 inches and 24 inches, to fit between joists or studs in a house’s framing. They come with or without a paper or foil facing that acts as a vapor barrier. You add one or more layers to achieve the desired level of insulation.
