Types of Attic Insulation

There are several kinds of attic insulation, including fiberglass batt insulation, blown-in fiberglass insulation, blown-in cellulose insulation, and spray foam insulation. At Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut, we offer blown-in cellulose insulation and rigid foam insulation for your attic.

Blown-in cellulose insulation is made from paper fibers and can deter pests and increase heat resistance. More airtight than batts and rolls, blown-in cellulose can enter tiny nooks and crannies in your attic where heat and cool air typically escape. This quality makes it more energy efficient than alternative solutions.

Rigid foam insulation is a durable and effective insulation material. Once rigid foam is installed, it won't shift or blow away. Not only that, but rigid foam is resistant to pests and water. Its continuous insulation, ability to address thermal bridging, and enhanced moisture control make it a superior option.

Effective Home Insulation in Shelton, CT

Heat always moves where it is needed. In the wintertime, heat will attempt to move from inside to outside. And in the summertime, heat moves inside the house, making homes uncomfortably hot. Without appropriate home insulation, you won't be able to combat these extreme temperatures in your home.

Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut can help reduce high energy costs and improve energy efficiency for your home with our home insulation services, including crawl space insulation, wall insulation, air sealing, and more. Although you can DIY your home insulation project, too much can go wrong, so it's best to trust the experts!

If you've noticed climbing energy costs or uneven temperatures in your home, chances are, you could benefit from superior home insulation solutions. We install rigid, blown-in, foam board, cellulose, and more. Schedule a free home insulation estimate today to learn more!!

Types of Insulation

There are plenty of insulation options on the market, each with their advantages and disadvantages.

  1. Fiberglass Batt Insulation is made of fine fibers of glass and is generally pink or yellow. While fiberglass is readily available, inexpensive, and easy to install, it can become ruined by moisture, has a low R-Value per inch, and can support mold and mildew growth.
  2. Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation forms an expanding foam when sprayed. Closed-cell spray foam creates a vapor barrier as it's applied. It can be installed quickly, has a high R-Value per inch, can be used around obstacles, and isn't damaged by moisture. However, it is expensive, permanent, difficult to clean up, and its final thickness is often uneven and inconsistent.
  3. Open-Cell Spray Foam Insulation also forms an expanding foam as it's sprayed, but does not seal out moisture like closed-cell spray foam. While it can be installed quickly and can be used around obstacles, it is expensive, does not create a vapor barrier, cannot be easily removed, has a low R-Value per inch, requires messy cleanup, and its final thickness is often uneven.
  4. Rigid Foam Insulation is made up of rigid foam panels that are closed-cell and installed on the walls of a crawl space. Rigid foam insulation has a high R-Value per inch, is waterproof, costs less than alternatives, creates a vapor barrier, and does not require messy installation. However, it is the most difficult type of insulation to install around obstacles and cannot expand to fill voids.
  5. Blown-In Cellulose Insulation is eco-friendly, relatively inexpensive compared to alternatives, and can conform around virtually any shape. On the other hand, it can attract moisture and packs down easier, leaving gaps.

At Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut, we install blown-in insulation, cellulose, rigid foam board insulation, and spray foam insulation. Allow our team to determine the best kind of insulation for your home!

Can You Insulate a Home Yourself?

In short, you can insulate your home on your own. However, insulation can be messy, lengthy, and even dangerous if there's mold in your crawl space or other parts of your home. It requires you to select the appropriate insulation materials, remove existing insulation, dry out the entire area, seal air leaks, install a vapor barrier, and then, finally, you can install the insulation.

When it comes to DIYing your insulation, too much can go wrong. For example, if you fail to remove the old insulation, your space will continue to have mold and mildew, impacting your home's air quality.

When you partner with an expert like Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut for your home insulation project, you can rest assured knowing our team will select the most appropriate solution for your home. With years of experience in the industry, we have the tools, expertise, and determination to complete your insulation installation quickly and seamlessly. Let our team increase your home's energy efficiency and reduce energy costs!

How Long Do Replacement Windows Last?

The longevity of your replacement windows depends on the craftsmanship of the installer, the materials used, and the weather conditions in your area. Generally, your windows should last between fifteen and thirty years.

There are some telltale signs that your windows need to be replaced, including:

  • You have difficulty operating your windows
  • You've noticed uncomfortable drafts
  • Your home has poor energy efficiency
  • Your windows are damaged
  • Your windows let in unwanted noise

What Time of Year is Best to Replace Windows?

When it comes to replacing your windows, there are some things you should consider, including the weather, your budget, and the type of window you want to install. If you live in an area with extreme weather conditions, it's important to wait until fall or spring to avoid damage during hot and cold months.

In short, it's best to install windows during spring or fall. These seasons offer moderate temperatures, making installation quicker and easier.
