Blow-in Attic Insulation
Ductworks Heating and Cooling has every aspect of your home comfort covered. Insulation prevents heat transfer which means it keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. More energy is lost through the attic than any other part of the house. Therefore, upgrading attic insulation is a popular energy-saving improvement. Attic insulation’s R-value is severally reduced when it is poorly installed and inadequate. The US Department of Energy recommends between R-49 and R-60. That is at least 16-inches of fiberglass insulation.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is the best way to reduce the cost of heating and cooling. Interconnected tiny bubbles make up open-cell foam. The bubbles hold air, which provides insulation value — typically between R-3.5 and R-4 per in.
Similar to closed-cell foam, open-cell foam expands to fill in gaps. But instead of curing to a hard, smooth-surfaced mass, open-cell foam has a spongier feel. And like a sponge, it will absorb moisture. Wet insulation causes reduced R-value. This is why it is not advisable to use open-cell spray foam in damp environments.
Closed-cell foam is more expensive to install than open-cell foam. But closed-cell foam offers higher R-value (between R-6 and R-7.1 per in.) and it forms an effective moisture barrier. Closed cell foam advantages are the ability to block moisture transmission while also providing air sealing and high insulation value.
Closed cell foam is a great way to insulate ductwork to eliminate condensation on ducts.
Crawlspace encapsulation creates a clean, dry environment under your home. Sometimes they are absolutely necessary when you have a major moisture issue under your home High moisture can lead to mold, mildew and wood rot. To achieve a mold free crawlspace encapsulate the crawlspace, install a dehumidifier and sump pump (in extreme situations).
