For over 30 years, Home Insulation & Supply has specialized in making homes and businesses comfortable, saving energy and money for its residents at the same time.

Insulation is the heart of our business, and we are experts in all types of batts, rolls, blankets, blow-in systems, sealants, firestopping, and more. Our trained technicians can quickly and efficiently insulate all aspects of your new or existing home or commercial building to cut your heating and air-conditioning costs.
Standard Batt Insulation

Standard batts and rolls offer efficient thermal and acoustic insulation. Its light weight and flexibility makes installation quick and easy, an especially handy trait for do-it-yourselfers.
Since fiberglass insulation is inorganic, its noncombustible, will not absorb moisture, and will not decay.




We also install systems from Johns Manville (Bibs) and CertainTeed (InsulSafe SP) blown-in insulation solutions for residential and commercial buildings.

MemBrain

MemBrain™ SMART Vapor Retarder is a film that changes its permeability with the humidity condition. Sounds technical, and it is. This product can make a world of difference by actually adjusting to seasonal climatic changes.

With rising concerns about excess moisture in homes (because of mold & other indoor comfort issues), MemBrain™ is a great option because it reduces the drying potential of a closed building envelope with seasonal climate changes. This product changes its permeability with the ambient humidity condition. It is not applicable in open attics, but is used in walls & closed cavity ceilings such as cathedrals.

Fiber America Green Seal Insulation

Examining the amount of insulation in buildings new and old is a very important part of a comprehensive energy efficiency review. As with all energy efficiency improvements, the benefits come down to comfort, energy efficiency and saving money.
  • Safety & Health
    In field tests and in actual home fires, it has been proven that cellulose insulation provides a better defense against the spread of fire and creates a longer opportunity to exit a burning structure. Cellulose insulation is treated for fire retardency and is given a Class I fire safety rating. Depending on the wall assembly, studies have shown a 22-55% increase in fire resistance versus an un-insulated wall.

  • Service Commitment
    Just like all insulation materials are not created equal, not all cellulose insulation products are created equal. Many consider Green Seal cellulose insulation to be the most consistent and highest quality available in the market.

  • Reasons to Go Green!
    • Highest Recycled Content
    • Least Amount of Energy To Produce
    • Smallest Manufacturing Carbon Footprint
    • Lowest Jobsite Waste

  • Comfort- Sound
    Installing cellulose insulation is one of the best methods available for sound abatement. Cellulose’s density produces less voids, giving sound very limited space in which to travel. On a standardized basis foam and fiberglass provide an STC (Sound Transmission Class) rating of 37 to 39. Cellulose provides a higher rating of 44, resulting in less sound infiltration.

  • Save Money- ENERGY EFFICIENCY
    Cellulose provides a higher R-value (thermal resistance) - 3.6 R/inch versus 2.2 R/inch for fiberglass.
    Cellulose “tightens” buildings better than fiberglass, fitting easily around pipes & electrical wiring. A Colorado University study has found that cellulose insulation is at least 36% better at eliminating air infiltration.
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory concluded that fiberglass loses up to 50% of its R-value in cold weather. Brookhaven National Laboratory found that fiberglass loses 3 times more R-value than cellulose in the summer.

LAPOLLA

Products that primarily address the growing consumer awareness of the building envelope. A building envelope is the separation between the interior and the exterior environments of a building. It serves as the outer shell to protect the indoor environment as well as to facilitate its climate control. The physical components of the envelope include the foundation, roof, walls, doors and windows. Lapolla provides insulation, an air barrier, and a vapor barrier with their products.

Air Sealing

Air sealing is the most efficient way to save money on your energy bills. Sealing air leaks and preventing inside air from escaping small crevasses in a building’s structure will impact your energy bills almost immediately.

Home Insulation & Supply has developed a technique called picture framing. In this technique, a foam product is applied within a cavity in areas where air escapes, creating a dead space to prevent air infiltration. When the foam application is complete, the application area represents a picture frame.

The picture framing technique achieves similar energy saving results that foam insulation does, costing the customer nearly 60% less than a comparable foam insulation job.

Thermal Imaging

To ensure all areas have been completely sealed, we perform a Thermal Imaging Test using ThermaCAM™. ThermaCAM™ is an infared camera that helps detect air leaks.
