Wall insulation is an important part of the building that helps to keep the home and its occupants comfortable all year round. There are various types of wall insulation such as fiberglass batt insulation, spray foam insulation, and loose-fill cellulose insulation. At Petro Home Renovations, we have capable hands that can get the job done in the best way you can ever imagine.
Fiberglass Batt Insulation
Fiberglass is a common home insulation material that has been in used for several years. Its general acceptance among contractors and homeowners as an insulation material in homes is as a result of its affordability and effectiveness. The batts are made to fit between wall studs thus making a breeze in new construction projects.
Fiberglass batts offer R-2.9 to 3.8 per inch of thickness. Fiberglass batt insulation is air permeable and as such it is recommended that it should have a face to act as a vapor barrier.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation involves the application of wet spray foam which expands into hard, thick foam. Spray foam insulation can be used in both enclosed existing walls and new construction projects. This type of insulation is capable of filling small cracks and gaps in order to provide complete coverage in oddly shaped spaces.
A closed-cell spray foam is more efficient than the open spray foam insulation because it offers up to R-6.2 per inch while open-cell spray foam insulation offers up to 3.7 per inch of thickness. One thing that stands spray foam out from other types of insulation is its ability to form a better air barrier which can help to reduce heat transfer. The only disadvantage of spray foam insulation is that it is expensive compared to other insulation types.
Loose-Fill Cellulose Insulation
Cellulose is a great insulation material which consists of 85 percent recycled newspaper that is treated with fire retardant to make it safe as a home insulation product; it is most suitable for insulating an enclosed existing wall. To effect a loose-fill cellulose insulation, a small hole is drilled in the exterior wall to insert a tube that will blow the loose-fill insulation into the wall cavity. Cellulose offers up to R-3.2 to R-3.8 per inch of thickness.
