We offer multiple applications of insulation installing services to tailor to your needs. Attic, wall, crawlspace, and knee wall insulation are just a few of insulation installing services. The overall purpose of insulation is to provide resistance from heat entering and leaving your home. The more heat flow resistance the insulation provides, the lower the cost of heating and cooling in your home. The insulations ability to produce this heat flow resistance is rated or measured in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value. The R-value can vary depending on the type of insulation material that is being used, its density and its thickness. The higher the R-value the greater the insulating effectiveness. The R-value code for homes are as follows, R-30 for ceilings, R-11 for walls, and R-19 for floors. For attic insulation we always use R-38 or higher because it is more efficient. The materials we normally use are cellulose insulation for blow in insulation in attics which has a R-44 value.
