When temperatures drop at the end of the summer, ensure your home is as energy efficient as possible. However, many homeowners do not know where to start when it comes to insulating their homes against colder temperatures.
Stellrr Insulation & Spray Foam offers a wide range of insulation packages for any homeowner who wants to save money on their energy bills without sacrificing comfort. Read to learn the services Stellrr Insulation and spray foam offers.
Insulation helps reduce energy costs by keeping your home cool or warm without relying on the expensive air conditioning or heating systems.
Spray foam works by applying liquid foam to the wall cavity of your structure, then allowing it to dry into an expanded polyurethane foam that adheres tightly to the surface. It creates a more efficient barrier against heat loss by stopping air from escaping through cracks in the wall. The process can also seal out water vapor from inside your home or business and soundproofing materials from outside noise sources.
The insulating material can be blown into any void, those found in walls, attics, and basements. They are from various plant-based and inorganic materials like cellulose, fiberglass, and mineral wool. The typical R-value is 2.4 per inch.
Fabricated from fiberglass or mineral wool, this Insulation is from ventilation ducts. The ability to withstand extreme heat is crucial. Standard R-value per inch is around 5.
Installing high-quality thermal Insulation in your home’s walls, floors, ceilings, and roofs will help you maintain a more comfortable indoor temperature. Energy consumption, resulting expenses, and CO2 emissions would rise without it due to the rising need for heating and cooling buildings. Rockwool products keep the temperature in a home constant. The R-value of Rockwool batts is 3.0 to 3.85 per inch.
Cellulose insulations are from recycled paper products such as newspapers, office paper, cardboard, and other paper byproducts. Many people believe cellulose insulation to be a green building material.
Cellulose insulation reduces noise and insulates draught-proof. The R-value of loose-fill cellulose insulation is 3.5 per inch, while the R-value of densely packed cellulose is 3.8 and 4.0.
Open Cell Insulation
The “blowing agents” used during the production of open cell insulation fill the Insulation’s cells with gas with low heat conductivity. The material’s measured thermal conductivity will drop if a blowing agent is used in place of air. The R-value is 3.8 per inch.
Closed Cell Insulation
When comparing closed-cell versus open-cell Insulation, closed-cell materials have more excellent dimensional stability and lower moisture absorption coefficients. Closed cell foam has gas pockets sealed from one another hence no moisture penetration. It prevents air leakage, deters moisture, and slows down condensation. Closed-cell foam has an R-value of R-6.5 to R-7 per inch.
The BIBS uses fiberglass-blowing wools with a recycled composition of 25% or higher, which contributes to its energy efficiency in heating and cooling.
BIBS is ideal for sealing air leaks around pipes, wires, and outlets and sealing up other irregularly shaped openings. It also helps to reduce noise from buildings. For wall thicknesses of 3.5 inches, BIBS insulation provides an R-value of R-15.
Insulation removal can be messy, hazardous, and time-consuming. If you’re planning to remove your Insulation yourself, there are things you need to consider before getting started. The following steps will help ensure that the process goes smoothly:
- Clearing contaminants. Before removing loose materials from your attic, it’s essential to clear contaminants that have accumulated in the space. It includes dust and debris as well as rodent droppings and insect nests.
- Actual removal. Locate all the nails or staples holding down the existing material and remove them using pliers or wire cutters (if necessary). Next, grab hold of one corner of an old blanket or drop cloth — whichever material you chose — and slowly pull it off your home.
- Sanitize and deodorize. Sanitize and deodorize any areas from mold or mildew growth. It helps ensure that your home smells fresh and clean.
- Disposal of Insulation eco-friendly. Dispose of it in an eco-friendly way so that it doesn’t end up in landfills or other areas where it could harm wildlife or pollute water sources.
Stellrr Insulation & Spray Foam offers soundproofing that reduces the amount of noise that travels through walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors.
Stellrr Insulation & Spray Foam offers energy audits. An energy audit comprehensively analyzes your home’s energy usage and efficiency. It helps determine whether you use your home’s most efficient heating, cooling, and lighting systems. If you live in a cold climate, an energy audit can also show you how to keep your home warm all year round without sacrificing comfort or spending too much money on utilities.
