What Type of Insulation is Right for You?
Fiberglass batt insulation, the most cost-effective type of insulation, is installed in wall cavities or ceiling spaces to reduce air flow which makes buildings more energy efficient.
Polyurethane foam applied to surfaces such as wall cavities, underneath roof decks, on crawl space walls & ceilings, and as an air seal in attics.
Loose-fill fiberglass insulation typically blown into attics. It can also be blown in wall cavities and between floors using mesh fabric to hold it in place. This method also reduces air flow creating greater energy efficiency but fills the cavity completely with less chance of air gaps when installed correctly.
Batt with Facers
Vinyl-faced batt insulation is fiberglass batt insulation covered with vinyl fabric on one side and the pieces are taped together at the seams. This application is generally used in unfinished spaces like basements and pole barns.
Foil-faced insulation is used in spaces to reflect heat or cold back into the interior space such as bathrooms or walk-in coolers.
Kraft-faced insulation has paper attached to one side which is installed with the paper facing toward the inside of the room or space. It’s generally installed in spaces where you want to reduce the chances of the material falling down as it can be stapled to the studs (in knee walls in the attic).

How to get Moore energy out of your home!
Poke your head in the house attic and check the level of insulation. Current recommended depth is 16.375”, or R-49 for this region (higher for colder climates in this area).
Remove an outlet cover and check behind the outlet box – is there any insulation? Depending on the home, we may be able install insulation in empty wall cavities.
Moisture, dust, or pests in your crawl space or unfinished basement? Spray foam could be the solution. Applying spray foam to the rim joist or crawl space walls can prevent cold air from leaking in through gaps in the foundation.
