Floor Insulation

A good quality under floor insulation means toasty feet in the winter and cool feet in the summer which is something you want. Normally there can be many basements that have no under floor heating at all and this can really cause issues with heating and energy bills. Why you might ask? Well no insulation means escaped heat and air conditioning and that means you have to keep your heater on longer or your air conditioning on longer to warm or cool a space. The whole point of insulation is to help you bring your energy bills down and keep your home much more energy efficient.

How we go about installing your new under floor insulation is by filling the joists with a quality and well manufactured insulation. We first look to see if you have any insulation at all and in many cases old homes lack the correct insulation that hold a good R-Value so it’s our job to address that and bring it up to a home energy code.

We are very knowledgeable here at UAC Insulation Contractors, R-values is something that we take very seriously as all insulation in every part of the country comes with an R-value rating so we have to make sure your property is fitted with the correct insulation thickness. When installing floor insulation we sometimes have to get in to crawl spaces to achieve this so we are very aware of health and safety. All of our crew wear safety helmets and equipment to ensure their safety. When we are in crawl spaces we like to also clean the space out to make sure it’s spotless down there.

When we do thermal testing we can normally see where heat is being wasted and escaping from or where cold is seeping in. Under the home many crawl spaces can be the ultimate areas where energy is wasted. Cold air sinks so that cold air sits under your home causing it to be cool. We make sure you have a good moister resistant insulation fitted to seal that damp cold air out of your home. We can use spray in insulation filler to seal the cavity space up or batt and rolled fiber glass to get the job achieved. It really does make a massive difference to your home and you will notice the difference almost immediately.

So if you have been suffering from cold rooms and cold floors it is time to give us a call and let us inspect your home to see where we can improve on that floor insulation.

Useful Information

As a company that deals with everyday home insulation information we have some great tips

When changing your insulation you will need to know how much insulation will be needed if you are doing it yourself. The U.S Department of Energy (DOE) and the Energy Conservation Code (IECC) is what you need to go by for any information regarding this. You can find the R-value for each area of the home by going online to their website and checking what thickness you need in your region. If you have our company come out to inspect your home and provide you with a quote, we will do all of this for you.


We bought our home in June and had a full house survey done on the property. One of the things that came up was that the attic insulation was insufficient so we had to put it on our to do list. In September we used UAC insulation Contractors to insulate our attic and they did a nice job. I was considering doing it myself but I took a look at the mess up there and thought better of it. The team came around and stripped out all of the old insulation and did a full attic clean, they made sure it was all bagged up and took it away for disposal. They installed a fiberglass insulation as that is what I wanted and I now I have a clean insulated attic which will be perfect for the winter. Thank you guys for doing a job I did not really want to do.

As my home was always hot or cold I needed to address the matter as it was costing me a small fortune in energy bills. I called UAC Insulation Contractors to do some further inspection and see if they could figure out why. Using some fancy equipment they managed to pinpoint the areas in my home where I was having heat and cold air escape. That’s why my home was always like an oven in the summer even with the AC on and an ice box in winter with the heat sill blasting. They got to work in adding extra insulation all over my home including crawl spaces under the home and in the walls. Now it’s like night and day, the heat stays in the home as does the AC so I am not spending a small fortune to feel comfortable. It’s well worth having your home inspected as you will be surprised as to how inefficient your home was running before these guys step in to change all of that.

I was after a good alternative to fiberglass insulation and I heard Cellulose insulation was the way to go. I had UAC Insulation Contractors come out and give me a price quote and they did a fantastic job of walking me through the benefits of Cellulose and verifying why I wanted it installed in the first place. I used the company to carry out the work and they used a loose fill insulation to pump in to the wall. They did a fantastic job and I was very happy with the end result of how the insulation installation which is a mouthful to say, went.

My basement was always miserable to go down to as it was freezing in the winter and having the washer and dryer located down there meant it was never a pleasure to venture to. I had UAC Insulation Contractors come around and look at installing some insulation to warm it up and then I wanted it sealed in with drywall to make it a proper room. The insulation team came around and suggested a good insulation and showed me the product. They told me it would instantly give me more warm and save me money on heating as less heat would escape. After having the work done 5 months ago I can safely say they were right. The room and home feels warmer in general and it’s now a place I don’t mind going down to when doing the washing.
