Insulation for your home or commercial space assists in both heating and cooling your home, by acting as a barrier between the elements and the interior of your property. Due to this, insulation improves the luxury of your home, as well as assists in driving down the costs of both heating and cooling. Options such as air conditioners can be a great addition to your home and help in both summer and winter but can cost you either electricity or gas, depending on your choice. Conversely, a carefully selected insulation solution can deliver similar results, without ongoing costs. We elaborate below on how we make your home or office a more comfortable place to be, while also saving you cash in the long term!
The many options available
The beauty of insulation is seen when you consider the many options available to you and your property. When constructing a new property, you can look at doing concrete block installations, for example. While this may not provide as much insulation as other methods, having an additional barrier between you and the elements can make all the difference to the quality of your living space. Alternatively, you may opt for insulation to be installed in your roof, attic, basement, or even under your floors! Each option has a range of benefits that will deliver the same result, but to different degrees, depending on the requirements of your property.
Installation of the different materials
Each insulation option differs greatly from the next and as such, so does the installation of each option. Your desired outcome, budget, and type of building or the area within the building that you are looking to insulate will affect the installation process greatly. Here at the Great Insulation Company, we are experts in ascertaining which option is best for your insulation needs, as well as effectively installing them, for the best results in the future. It is advisable to consult with a professional before deciding on how best to insulate your home, so give us a call and receive sound advice from our helpful contractors!
The “R-value” of an insulation material identifies how well a material provides insulation, particularly, how effective it is in terms of heat flow resistance. The “R” in R-value stands for “resistance”, so it quite literally means resistance-value. The higher the R-value, the more insulation the material provides. We are experts in ascertaining what the structure of your property will allow in terms of materials providing specific R-values, as well as which values will be best suited to your desired effect.
A professional touch
As you can now see, there are several factors to consider before you can decide on an insulation method or material that will be suited to your bespoke needs. Everything from the material selected, to the way that it is installed will affect the outcome of your efforts, so it is important that you have a professional insulation service on hand to assist you in choosing how best to approach the job.
