A thorough inspection including a moisture test was done prior to us hiring them for the job .

No issues, no surprises, every question answered , every request considered, ours was a very pleasant and positive experience and after having had other contractors who performed so poorly for us in the past, Insulation Experts was like a breath of fresh air. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys! ”

Stephen Day

“Insulation Experts were really very professional, courteous, and thorough. I am a Landscape Architect, so I design projects and see that they are constructed correctly. Every project has unexpected conditions surface, which have to be analyzed and addressed on the fly. I had just purchased an old house and, while installing spray foam insulation under my raised house, the Insulation Experts crew found mold and excessive dampness in the subfloor. They proposed methods of resolving the issues and took care of business. The job was done efficiently and professionally. I recommend Insulation Experts to everyone who needs home insulation.”

Mary B.

“I would highly recommend Insulation Experts, LLC. I call them out for and estimated spray foam under the house. They explain the different type of spray foam, open cell foam and close cell foam. They check under the house for moisture level, and explain everything throughly. I was very impressed with the company. I got quote from two other companies and they did not check under the house for moisture level and was not professional enough for me to hire them to do the job.”

Ryder Johnson

“Henry and Jim did a fantastic job from start to finish. From explaining the different types of insulation to showing me exactly what work would be done, the guys made sure that I was well informed and confident in my decisions every step of the way. Every time I called Ira he took the time to explain the science behind the different types of insulation to help me understand my options and make an informed decision.”

Once the project is ready for insulation I will definitely be using Insulation Experts.”

Ryan Lee

“Wanted to drop you a note to extend my appreciation, I am very pleased with the job done by your crew. I cannot believe the difference this has made, it is currently 98 degrees outside as I write and my ac unit just cycled off! This has never occurred during the hot summer months, it would just run for 10 hours struggling to keep up. My attic is so much cooler, currently it sits at 88 degrees versus the 135 it was prior to the insulation. This was well worth my investment and I’m so glad you were the ones to do it.”

William Wantz

“I had done my research and called at least two other companies before choosing Insulation Experts to install open cell spray foam.

Their guys got under our home (115 year home ) and sprayed about 1400 sq ft. In close to 2hrs. Our floors were noticeable warmer the next night and felt more stable as well. We couldn't be more pleased with the job that was done and how professional the team was.”

Types of Insulation

slider-1What Kind Of Insulation Should You Purchase?

It can be very challenging to choose the best kind of insulation for your house. However, it is always the same goal. You want to have an even insulation layer that fills every space completely between the framing. Top to bottom, front to back and every small nook and cranny as well.

Basically there are four different kinds of insulation that can be used in your house:

  • Blankets of Insulation – Rockwool and Fiberglass
  • Blown In Insulation- Fiberglass and Cellulose
  • Spray Foam Insulation- Closed and Open Cell
  • Foam Board Inslation- ISO, XPS and EPS
  • Blankets Of Insulation – Rockwool and Fiberglass – R-3+ per inch

Insulation Blankets

Blankets of Insulation is the most common kind of insulation that is available from major home improvement stores. It is sold in big compressed bundles of various thicknesses and widths since the depth of the framing and space in between the framing always vary.

Types of Insulation – Dimensions. For instance, usually walls are built using 2×4’s that are spaced 16 inches on center from one another. Actually a 2×4 is 3 1/2 inches deep. So 14 1/2 inches of space is left on 16 inch on center framing that needs to be filled with insulation. The best type of insulation for the wall is 15 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches deep.

Types of Insulation – Blanket Insulation. This kind of insulation resembles cotton candy and earns its R-value through trapping air between very small fibers. Heat is slowed down by the tiny air pockets as it attempts to pass through the insulation. When the insulation is compresses it squeezes some air pockets out which decreases its R-value.

Basically rolls and batts are the same except for one small difference. Rolls are one continuous piece of insulation that you cut on your own. Bats are pre-cut so that they fit in between common stud cavities within ceilings, floors and walls. If you are fortunate enough to have walls to insulate with 92 5/8″ cavities, then you can use pre-cut batts. To insulate anything else, you will probably need to purchase rolls and then cut each piece so that it fits properly.

Blown in Loose Fill

Just like its name sounds, blown in insulation is blown into your home via a tube. This kind of insulation gets sold in compressed blocks. These are then broken down by an insulation blower, which is a very powerful machine, into very small pieces. The insulation is forced through a large hose by the blower. As the insulation is flying from the hose, the installer will direct the insulation flow into the right place.

Two kinds of insulation compared – cellulose and fiberglass insulation. The major benefit to blown in insulation being used is how completely and perfectly it fills in spaces that are in between your home’s ceilings, floors and walls.

Those very small pieces of insulation do an excellent job at insulation since they evenly spread through a space and wrap around any obstacles such as ductwork, pipes, wires and outlets. This kind of insulation eliminates voids and gaps missing insulation which can compromise the insulation’s insulation power that is in your home and end up costing you a lot of money in the form of energy bills.

Blowing Insulation Into Your Attic

Adding insulation into an attic is the most popular way to use blown in insulation. In the attic, you can blow the insulation over the top of your existing insulation at any r-value or depth. It is an easy and fast DIY project that can be done in one afternoon by two people.

Blowing Insulation into Your Walls

Insulation can be blown into a house with existing ceilings and walls without the walls getting destroy in the process when it is performed by skill professionals. They cut small holes into the walls and then a small tube is used to blow the insulation into the wall cavity. Holes may be drilled outside or inside of the house depending on the specific situation. It’s an excellent way of getting insulation into some of the approximate 58 million homes in the U.S. that don’t have any insulation in the ceilings or walls.

Types of Insulation – Spray Foam. This type of insulation is a combination of different chemicals that are heated and then sprayed through a machine’s hose. These spray foam chemicals combine at the hose’s tip and create a paint-like thick goo that will stick to whatever it touches including ducts, pipes and wires. Within just a few seconds, this foam start expanding to trap a gas inside of billions of very small bubbles. As this foam starts to expand, it begins to form an even and continuous layer of insulation along with an air tight seal. That’s exactly what you need insulation to do.

Two Kinds Of Spray Foam – Closed Cell vs. Open Cell

You need to be aware of the act that there are two different kinds of spay foam that have different applications and characteristics.

Open-Cell Spray Foam

Open-cell is the least expensive spray foam option. It is called this due to the fact that the bubbles that are inside of the foam don’t ever close completely. When the foam starts to expand, air becomes trapped in between broken bubbles. That results in the space being divided into billions of very small air pockets which slows heat down as it attempts to pass through. Due to the broken bubbles open-cell spray foam is a lot softer kind of foam. The bubbles let the water pass through them. Depending on the specific application this can be bad or good. Open-cell spray foam fills around and in pipes, wires and other types of obstacles very well. However, at R-3.5 per inch, its insulation power isn’t that great.

Closed-Cell Spray Foam

The cells or bubbles in closed-cell spray foam are tightly packed together and closed. That is why closed-cell spray foam is a lot stronger and denser compared to open-cell spray foam. It doesn’t let air pass through it or absorb water. That is due to the fact that the bubbles that are in closed-cell foam are full of gas,which makes them a better insulator and a lot smaller. Closed-cell spray foam has an impressive R-7 per inch of average insulating power, which tops the charts.

DIY Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam kits make it possible for homeowners to install spray foam insulation on their own. Disposable kits include everything that is needed to install spray foam insulation safely and is the latest craze when it comes to insulation. It is excellent for small jobs where it is critical to keep moisture and wind out. It also works very well with the Flash and Batt technique.

Flash and Batt

When the Flash and Batt technique is used, you start by spraying closed-cell spray foam in a thin layer on the wall. An air tight wall cavity is created along with a vapor barrier. Then the rest of the space is filled with fiberglass rolls or batts. What you are attempting to do here is increase the wall’s insulating power and overcome one of the greatest weaknesses of fiberglass insulation, which is convective heat loss, which is cause by air moving through the wall. This can occur when the wind is blowing and cold air is pushed into your house. The air is stopped by the closed-cell foam and allows the fiberglass insulation to work correctly.

Foam Board Insulation

This is yet another kind of insulation. Rigid or foam board insulation is probably the insulation product available in the market that is the least understood. It comes in sheets the way drywall or plywood does, in 1/2″ to 2″ thicknesses.

Like spray foam, it gains its insulating power from the tiny bubbles that are set in a medium such as polyurethane or polystyrene. At local building supply stores you will find three main types: Poly-isocyanurate (ISO), Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) and Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). They each have their own unique applications.

Typically foam board is installed on the exterior of your house during a major renovation project or under a concrete floor before pouring it. It is the most popular DIY application to insulate basement floors and walls. These foam boards are glued and then screwed into the floor and foundation directly. Finally spray foam and a special tape are used to seal it off.

Foam board is ideal for basement which they are constantly under attack from moisture. Typically XPS and EPS foam boards are used since they are semi-permeable, meaning moisture is allowed to pass through and let the floor or wall dry rather than rot.
