What Type of Home Insulation Should You Choose? Worcester, Boston

Joseph Coupal - Monday, August 05, 2013

Homeowners are now beginning to think about how they are going to reduce home heating bills this winter. The right amount of home insulation at the right R-value is a great place to start.

Home Insulation is measured by the R-value of the product. The higher the R value the better the insulation will be at preventing heat loss or gain. The R-value depends on the type of insulation you choose and its thickness or density.

If you are insulating an attic space, you want to install as much insulation as possible without letting the insulation come in contact with the underside of the roof's decking. But first you need to select the insulation materials you want to use based on budget, performance and installation styles. You can use fiberglass blanket or  batts, blown-in, spray foam insulation or wet spray cellulose insulation.

Blanket insulation - Knauf EcoBatt® Insulation - EcoBatt Insulation combines sand, one of the world’s most abundant and renewable resources, post-consumer recycled bottle glass and ECOSE Technology to create the next generation of sustainable insulation. Knauf EcoBatt Insulation is cost-effective thermal and acoustical barriers for energy-efficient construction.

Blown-in insulation - Cellulose insulation is blown-into your home by using two holes in every wall bay insuring each bay is 100% full.  Blown-in insulation increases the value of your new buildings and existing homes. It adds a significant sound barrier and moisture control.

Spray Foam Insulation – Your heating and cooling costs are typically reduced by 30-50% when you use spray foam insulation.

Wet Spray Cellulose insulation - Wet Spray Cellulose insulation increases the value of your new buildings and existing homes.  It provides a significant sound barrier and moisture control with a proven energy savings.
