Frequently Asked Questions About Insulation
There are many types of insulation available. A professional insulation expert can help decide which type of insulation is best for your home or business in Central Florida. In general, the most common types of insulation include:
- Spray foam
- Batt and roll/blanket
- Mineral wool
- Natural fibers
- Rigid board/foam board
Insulation works to keep the temperature inside your home at a comfortable level, while also keeping your energy bills low. Insulation achieves this by both decreasing the amount of heat entering your home in the warmer months, and trapping heat indoors in the colder months. This is extremely important due to the hot Florida summers! Insulation is rated by an R-value, which measures how resistant certain insulation types are to heat flow. A high R-value means that insulation provides good climate control and keeps it energy efficient.
Insulation is typically installed inside of attics, floors above unfinished basements, and crawl spaces. Older homes often need insulation on their exterior walls as well. Different types of insulation are all made from different materials, from fine glass fibers, recycled paper products, wool, and more.
The amount of insulation you need depends on a number of factors. Typically, your insulation installation expert will help you determine just how much insulation is needed. The different factors that play into the amount of insulation required include:
- Region/climate zone: Here in the state of Florida, there are two zones that determine the amount of insulation needed.
- Type of HVAC system you have: Insulation and HVAC work hand-in-hand to provide a controlled climate inside your property.
- Age of your property: Older buildings typically require more insulation than newer ones.
- Areas of your property that need insulation: Some properties only need insulation in the attic, others need it elsewhere.
The cost of insulating a property depends on a number of factors. Some of the common considerations include how many floors need to be insulated, the square footage of the property, and the type of insulation used. The national average to insulate a home in 2021 ranges between $1,400 and $2,300. When your insulation installation expert inspects your property, they will provide you with an estimate for how much it will cost to insulate your home.
Although most types of insulation are made with fire-resistant materials or treated to be resistant to flames, there are some rare cases when insulation is still flammable. It’s important to keep in mind that the insulation installed in your home is built to resist fire, but it’s equally important to learn what materials may pose a threat:
- Although fiberglass is non-combustible (meaning it is inherently fireproof), there are some fiberglass facings that are flammable: foil and kraft paper. These facings are used for moisture control and, when exposed, can be a fire hazard.
- Cellulose is made of recycled paper fiber. This makes it prone to fires. However, the best cellulose insulation options are treated heavily with a fire retardant.
- Spray foam consists of cellulose and fiberglass. Although spray foam provides a great barrier in homes, its plastic material components are flammable.
Studies have proven that insulation can save homeowners a lot of money each year. In fact, the EPA estimates that property owners can save up to 15% of energy costs (both heating and cooling) by installing insulation in attics, crawl spaces, and in other areas around the home. Even homeowners with existing insulation can benefit from having their home re-insulated with the latest and greatest materials.
In addition to its energy efficiency and climate control features, insulation helps to reduce noise in homes and other properties. Certain types of insulation work to reduce noise not just between rooms and floors inside the property, but also between the inside and outside of your home. The best types of insulation for noise reduction are fiberglass and cellulose.
More often than not, the best insulation options for homes and businesses are either fiberglass or cellulose insulation, both of which have high R-values. Another high-value insulation option offered by the experts at Heron Home & Outdoor is TAP Insulation, which is a pest-resistant insulation. In addition to preventing pest problems, this insulation outperforms traditional insulation in a number of ways.
The easiest way to ensure you are getting the best insulation possible is to consult your local experts in insulation services. They can choose the best insulation type for your home or business.
