Control the climate inside your home with the right insulation. Beyond attics and walls, imagine a whole-home insulation solution that creates a snug “housing envelope” controlling heat, air, moisture and sound.
What is the R-Value in insulation?
It’s simple. The higher the R-Value, the greater its effectiveness. If you live a warm climate, you require a lower R-value. Cold areas require a higher R-Value, like an R- 49. Increase your R-value by layering insulation. Layer more insulation over the old for more effectiveness.
Insulation Formats Explained
The format of the insulation you need depends on where you put it and if you need to control moisture. Keep your space dry with faced insulation. It uses a sheet of paper to control moisture vapor between walls and floors. Unfaced installation doesn’t have a paper moisture shield. It’s often used over existing insulation in the attic, where moisture control isn’t needed.
Rolls, batts or blown-in insulation
Rolls are easy to transport and can be cut to the length you need. Use these to cover large areas. Batts come in pre-cut lengths, which makes installation fast and easy, especially for framed spaces. Tip: Batt insulation packages contain more square feet than rolls. Blown-In insulation is installed using blowing machines. It makes adding insulation to your attic a breeze.
