Do you know that adding insulation to your home
can save money on your cooling and heating bills?
And that air sealing and upgrading the insulation in
your home is the best way to save money on your high energy bill?
What would you do with the money you would save on your winter heating
bills by adding insulation to your home?
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,
it's 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™ 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
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 retardancy 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.
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
Installing cellulose insulation is one of the best methods available for sound abatement.
Cellulose’s density produces fewer 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 SPRAY FOAM INSULATION
Lapolla spray polyurethane foam insulation is designed to reduce energy consumption in the residential, industrial, and commercial structures.
Benefits of Lapolla spray foam insulation include:
Can deliver energy savings of up to 45% for the life of your property
Can be added to your existing home replacing the current insulation, or it can be applied to a new property being built
Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available, with aged R-Values above 6.0 per inch.
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 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.
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.
There are a variety of other insulation options available to homeowners based on their
specific needs. We are happy to visit your home or business and provide a complimentary
insulation assessment. Email us to schedule your appointment, or call our office. We are
proud to have the opportunity to serve you!
