Insulation Installation for Existing Homes
Insulation lays a foundation of energy efficiency for residential, commercial and industrial structures. It is one of the most cost-effective ways to save energy and reduce monthly energy bills. In fact, Remodeling Magazine found that the average attic air seal and insulation project added value to the home at resale within a year of completion, averaging 116% return on investment!
At Alpha Insulation & Gutters, we utilize the latest building science methods to determine the right, cost-effective insulation solution for every project’s unique needs. We can assess your home to help make it more energy-efficient and consistently comfortable year round.
Heat flows from higher temperature areas to lower temperature areas, creating temperature fluctuation within a space. Insulation wraps your home in a protective blanket, reducing heat flow in order to keep the heat out during warmer months and the heat in during cooler months. Insulation is an excellent noise absorber and helps to reduce sound transmission from both outside and within a home, creating a quieter space with less reverberation. Insulation also allows other energy-efficient components, such as air sealing, to do their job, forming a comprehensive insulating system that helps maintain consistent temperatures and moisture levels, reduce energy usage and increase monthly utility savings.
The “R” in R-value stands for resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the higher the level of resistance and the greater the insulating power. R-value requirements vary depending on climate and building type.
Home Performance Assessment
The experts at Alpha have been trained by the Building Performance Institute to pinpoint energy-loss issues in a home and to make the proper recommendations to resolve them. If you are experiencing inconsistent indoor temperatures, cold rooms in the winter or hot rooms in the summer, or high energy costs, we can help you determine the right way to correct these issues.
