Types of Home Insulation
BASIC BATT Annual Savings from Proper Insulation: $0 (based on 1500 ft² rambler with $250/mo utilities)
Batting is a fiberglass blanket that comes in various densities, widths, and lengths and is cut to fit the space in framing of walls and ceilings. It is typically used in entry-level homes and at less than optimal levels.
- Most common
- Lowest cost
- Easy to install
- R-values from 8 – 38
- Noise control for walls, ceilings, and floors
- Fire Resistant
SPRAY CELLULOSE/BLOWN FIBERGLASS
Annual Savings from Proper Insulation: $600 (20% savings) (based on 1500 ft² rambler with $250/mo utilities)
Blown-in insulation, using either cellulose or fiberglass, is applied into frame cavities using compressed air. This application allows the insulation to completely fill in all nooks and crannies where batt insulation may allow energy loss.
- Quick and easy to install in most homes, especially older homes
- More completely insulates cracks and spacesEasy to install
- More efficient–higher r-value per inch
- Fire retardant Fire resistant
- Great sound barrier
- Eco-friendly (cellulose uses up to 80% recycled material)
Annual Savings from Proper Insulation: $1,200 (40% savings) (based on 1500 ft² rambler with $250/mo utilities)
SPF, Closed-Cell Foam is the most advanced insulation material. The high-density foam is sprayed onto surfaces and hardens immediately to form a seamless bond with building components and completely seals the building envelope to create a structurally sound, uniform, air-infiltration barrier that also blocks moisture (no mold or rot), bugs, rodents, dirt, allergens, and noise. Foam is most commonly used in conjunction with batt and/or blown-in insulation to provide an optimal solution that can save homeowners up to 40% on their energy bills, ensuring a quick return on the investment and $1,000s in savings.
- Most efficient with r-value of 6.0 per inch
- Completely seals building envelope from air, moisture, sound, and pests
- Increased structural strength
- Better indoor air quality
- Eco-friendly (VOC-free and zero ozone depletion)
- Applied to all construction materials
