How Assured Insulation Can Help Your Home Stay Comfortable Year-Round

Spray foam insulation  can help your home or commercial project stay comfortable year-round while significantly lowering heating and cooling costs. Assured Insulation is your local expert when it comes to installing the right type and thickness of insulation for any construction or renovation project.

According to some estimates, up to 90% of homes in the United States are under-insulated. This makes it important for homeowners and builders to understand that insulation is one of the most cost-effective, energy-saving home performance upgrades.

Assured Insulation: Elevating Your Comfort and Savings Beyond Expectations

The most common form of insulation is fiberglass batts. These rolls of spun glass fibers fit between attic beams and joists and trap pockets of air that prevent heat transfer to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This type of insulation can be installed in new construction or as a retrofit in existing homes.

Spray foam insulation is another popular type of insulation. This type of insulation is applied by an experienced insulation contractor as a liquid that expands to fill the cracks and crevices in walls, ceilings, and other open spaces. It creates an air-tight seal and resists moisture and mildew. This type of insulation can be installed in both new and existing homes as a retrofit or as part of a full attic upgrade.

Cellulose insulation is also a great choice for both new and existing homes. It is blown in a similar way as the fiberglass batts and uses a special 2 1/2-inch hose that has a high-pressure nozzle that resembles a pressure washer to blow dry cellulose fiber into wall cavities. This specialized hose applies a mist of water with each stroke to establish an important balance – the insulation must be damp enough to stick to the framing materials but not so wet as to introduce moisture problems.
