Colorado Springs Insulation
Insulation in Colorado Springs
Due to Colorado Springs’ very harsh cold climate and rough winters, many homeowners seek to add insulation in order to keep their families warm in the middle of the most brutal parts of the winter. Adding insulation is also a decent way to reduce your energy usage bills by allowing your house to hold in more of your own used energy. Before you decide that your home needs insulation, what should be looked at is what kind of insulation that your home already has and how much insulation, so that it can be determined if the addition of more insulation will be a benefit to your home or not. A home energy audit is a highly recommended idea, as that can give an exact figure on how much, if any, insulation would be beneficial to your home and how much heat energy is potentially being wasted away because of your home’s insulation.
Spray Insulation in Colorado Springs
The most common types of insulation are the fiberglass batts and blankets, rockwool batts and blankets, cotton batts, loose-fill fiberglass, loose-fill cellulose, structural insulated panels (various types), and various types of spray foam insulation. Batts and blankets are the most common type of insulation that’s used and they hold the best chance for the job to be done on your own, if you wish. The rockwool batts and blankets insulation is easier to install and it is only slightly less of an environmental hazard than the fiberglass batts and blankets is, but the choice will ultimately depend on which job a certain type of insulation is suited for. The cotton batts are the best and most efficient of all batts and blankets insulation types, but it is easily the most expensive, as well. Both of the loose-fill insulation options are great for ceiling insulation and the advantages and disadvantages are about the same for each type and they cost almost the exact same amount, but the loose-fill fiberglass does have a slightly lower rating than the loose-fill cellulose insulation. Spray foam insulation types cost more than any of the batts types of insulations, but the R-value is also far higher. Speak with one of our experts today about your options and get a free estimate!
While you can do very small jobs on your own with open-cell spray foam, the closed-cell spray foam absolutely requires professional work. Both types of spray foam show much better results in the insulation if professionals are hired to maximize the R-value of your job. The structural insulated panels options are the most difficult to think about installing on your own and the hiring of our professional crew is highly recommended. While structural insulated panels have some of the highest energy-saving potential, they are also some of the priciest options for insulation. While these options mainly depend on the tendency for moisture in your home, we ensure that our experienced remodeling crew will know the best insulation options for the different parts of your home.
