Depending on what type of home and ceiling you have then it will determine what type of insulation you need. You might have vaulted ceilings or cathedral ceilings and if this is the case then we can suggest some insulation with a great R-Value rating. We look at basement ceilings and we see where we can create warmth in the home. If the ceiling is still exposed then we can easily install it between the ceiling framing. Fiberglass or cellulose installation will be used and with this we will make sure the home is up to the correct energy efficient standards.
So things we consider when installing are as follows, sound dampening qualities as you don’t want to hear your guests walking around on the 2nd floor and very good floor insulation can help with that. The whole point of adding quality insulation between your floors is to lock in the heat in the winter and keep those rooms cool in the summer. We can add the insulation to your ceilings in a variety of ways and it will all depend on the condition of your home. If your home is going through a full renovation then we can concentrate on opening up the ceiling and adding the insulation that way. You will have a few choices from Fiberglass insulation to cellulose insulation. There are some various products you can use such as batts and rolls to fill the cavity space. We make sure there are no openings so it’s fantastically sealed. Compression will reduce the R-value so we have to make sure it’s installed properly. All vents must be kept free to allow air flow so we make sure we accomplish this.
If your home is currently being lived in and it’s not undergoing renovation then we have to look at others ways to add the insulation to the ceiling and this can be achieved by using a good custom insulation that blows insulation filling in to the cavity by drilling small holes. The good thing about blow in insulation is it can be performed in pretty much any home and it really does fill all the gaps in the ceiling cavity to give that warmth and sound dampening qualities.
We make sure this insulation installation is all performed in a safe manor so you don’t have to fret about anything getting damaged or anything going wrong. Our home efficiency experts know exactly what they are doing so all you have to do is leave them to it and they will get on with it making sure your home is more energy efficient.
