When correctly installed with air sealing, each type of insulation can deliver comfort and lower energy bills during the hottest and coldest times of the year. As the experts in home insulation for Maple Grove and the surrounding areas, we’d like to offer an outline of these different types of insulation as well as their many benefits.
Closed Cell Spray Foam
Our most popular type of home insulation; closed cell polyurethane spray foam insulation is one of the most advanced insulating materials available today. Here at Lewis Insulation, we use state of the art equipment & have completed certified training & continued education on spraying polyurethane spray foam. Closed cell spray foam offers the highest R-value over all other insulation types. Closed cell spray foam is sprayed at a high heat temperature, using specialized equipment & expands & hardens within minutes. It also expands, filling cracks and voids and creates a seamless air barrier, improving the air quality in your home and reducing energy costs. Closed cell spray foam will not shrink or settle over time, so you can enjoy the energy saving costs for the life of your home. Closed cell spray foam can be applied in non-vented attics, walls, ceilings, attics, floors, foundations, crawl spaces, around piping and more.
Fiberglass is what most people think of when it comes to home insulation. Fiberglass is very budget-friendly however this type of home insulation is usually best installed by professionals. A good choice for walls, floors and ceilings, it comes in rolls that are ready-made for installation. This type of home insulation is best for between framing, like studs and joints.
Cellulose is one of the most effective types of insulation since it has such a high R-value, and it is also a great choice for those concerned about the environment and their carbon footprint. That’s because cellulose is made out of recycled newspaper. It also works great for those hard to reach areas of your home, like your attic. And it can be installed over existing insulation.
These are just some of the great benefits of each type of home insulation material. Give us a call to learn more! We can help determine which type of home insulation is best for you.
