What Types of Insulation Are There?

 

As you know if you read this blog regularly, we are big proponents of having not only the right amount of insulation, but also the right type of insulation in place. You may be surprised to hear this, but there are various different kinds of insulation, and not all of them are ideal for any given situation. That is why it is so important that you only trust trained professionals to install your insulation in Phoenix, AZ.

When you work with us, your insulation will be top-notch. It’s just that simple. Only then can you prevent the unwanted transfer of heat that can pose risks not only to your comfort, but to your energy budget as well.

  • Blanket insulation is what most people will immediately think of when they hear the word. Sold in batts and rolls, blanket insulation may be made of many different fibers, including fiberglass, plastic, and natural fibers. It is used in unfinished walls, including those of home foundations, and is simply fitted between studs and beams.
  • Foam and rigid board insulation has very high insulating value for very little relative thickness. It is great for interior applications, but may also be used in exterior settings so long as it is covered with weatherproof materials.
  • Blown-in insulation and spray foam insulation are both great for enclosed walls, new wall cavities, and other places that are just hard to access. Blown-in insulation is a loose-fill style, with the materials being blown or simply poured into the space. Oftentimes, recycled materials are used. Spray foam insulation is pressure sprayed into the area, and is very useful for adding insulation to finished areas. The foam will harden as it dries.

Keep your home comfortable and efficient throughout the year by scheduling your insulation services with Goettl Air Conditioning.
