Q: As a Homeowner, How Can I Be Sure I’m Getting What I Paid For?
A: With our cellulose insulation, homeowners receive the insulation and performance they paid for.
Tests conducted by a fiberglass manufacturer reveal that the actual performance of batts can be 14% to 45% less than their labeled R-value when gaps and voids associated with normal batt installation are considered.
Q: When Comparing Insulations, Can I Depend on R-Values?
A: Yes, and No
R-value is a laboratory measurement that measures conduction, one type of heat transfer. However, there are two other methods of heat transfer that occur in your home: convection and radiation. To ensure the most comfortable and energy efficient home, look for insulation that effectively controls all three methods of heat transfer.
Q: How Does My Home Lose and Gain Heat?
A: Your home loses and gains heat in three ways.
The transfer of heat by moving air, for example, warm air rises and transfers heat to the ceiling.
The transfer of heat through a solid material, for example, heat is transferred from warmer sections of the walls and ceilings to cooler sections.
The transfer of heat in the form of electromagnetic waves, for example, heat is transferred from the roof to the ceiling.
Q: Will Insulation Really Effect My Monthly Heating and Cooling Bills?
Our cellulose insulation will help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, blocks air infiltration, and will save you money.
