Wall Insulation

Because there are a great deal of homes out there that were built in the 60s and earlier the building codes were not as good as they are today so a great deal of home builders skimped on adding good wall insulation to save money. You might have found your home has been suffering from not trapping the cool air conditioning in the summer and the heat escaping in the summer. This is going to add a massive amount to electric and gas bill as you will need to run it more. By having a better insulation added to your walls if will save you massively in the long run.

We like to assess the home or business to make sure that foremost it needs added wall insulation and this is done by using some of our high tech equipment. Once we have diagnosed your home and given you our feedback we look to what can be done to insulate your home more.

The solutions to insulating your walls can be achieved with fiberglass rolled insulation; if your beams are exposed and the cavity space is free then this is the way to go. We can add a blown in wall insulation If you are living in the home and it’s not in a state of renovation. When currently living in the property we will advise on the blown insulation as it can be done with little disruption to the current home owner. We can blow in cellulose insulation to the wall cavity and this is done from inside or outside the home. We have to assess to see where would be best to achieve this and our trained insulation technicians will know exactly what to do. If we are installing the insulation in the home then we will make sure the furniture is covered in dust sheets and the area is looked after to contain any escaped dust. The normal practice is small holes will be drilled between the studs so the cavities can be filled up. Once the insulation is blown in the patching of the walls will be quickly dealt with, then it’s just a case of enjoying your new insulated home.

If we do decide to drill on the interior side it’s just through dry wall in most cases so the patch work is slightly easy to attend to. If the exterior is being used to blow the insulation in then we have to look at the exterior materials of the home. Is it brick? Or wood siding? We have to consider all options and see if we can remove the façade where we can to drill holes then patch and reapply the façade. We make sure to avoid electric wires and gas lines plus water lines so everything is completed with no hassle or drama.

If you have a basement then we like to check to make sure the insulation won’t just drop straight through the walls in to the basement. The cavity has to be sealed and we will make sure it is.

Once all the work has been achieved we then try another thermal test to show you the difference of your new insulated home.

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.
