As summer rapidly draws to a close and winter’s chill is just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about protecting your home during the winter months. One of the most important tools you have as a homeowner when it comes to reducing energy costs and keeping your home warm is your insulation.
It’s easy to overlook insulation until you need to upgrade yours. At The Construction Group, we offer several insulation options for Twin Cities homeowners. In this post, we’ll break down your insulation options when it’s time to re-insulate or insulate your home.
Isn’t All Insulation the Same?
If you don’t know much about insulation, you might be inclined to assume that insulation is insulation. But in fact, all insulation is not created equally. There are actually several types of insulation available on the market today.
Insulation comes in these forms and more:
● Structural insulated panels
● Fiberglass blankets
● Fiberglass rolls
● Spray foams
Choosing Your Home’s Insulation
When it comes time to choose your insulation, it’s important to start with an assessment of your home’s external environment. This should largely focus on addressing specific issues to your climate. Certain insulation products are better suited to handle different climates and temperature extremes. Specifically, high levels of humidity can cause the proliferation of mold on your insulation. If you live in an area with high humidity, you’ll need to purchase insulation that is resistant to mold growth.
Why Spray Foam Insulation?
At The Construction Group, we value spray foam insulation due to its versatility and high performance. If you’ve seen any home improvement shows in the past few years, chances are you’ve noticed that spray foam is the preferred form of insulation by most highly skilled professional contractors.
Spray foam creates a complete air seal that hinders the radiation of ambient heat from your home’s living spaces. Besides creating an excellent thermal barrier, it prevents moisture infiltration and mold growth.
Here are a few key benefits of spray foam insulation:
● Improves indoor air quality
● Reduces allergens
● Reduces pollutants
● Keeps home more comfortable
● Reduces drafts
● Improves HVAC system efficiency
