Getting new insulation for the home is an important step in maintaining an energy efficient environment. Whether old insulation is being replaced, additional insulation is being added, or insulation is being installed for the first time, at Seltz Brothers, we offer quality services by our team of professionals to help ensure the efficiency of your home.
Benefits of Insulation
A well-insulated home provides benefits in many ways. Insulation provides a comfortable interior, lowers heating and cooling costs, and increases the value of the home.
Insulation works as a barrier to help reduce heat loss out of the home during cold winter months as well as heat coming into the home during the hot summer months, keeping your home a consistent temperature so you can stay comfortable from room to room, all year round.
Lowering Energy Bills
The U.S. Department of Energy notes that 49% of a homeowners’ monthly energy bill is dedicated to cooling and heating. The high-cost may be due to insufficient or degraded insulation, or improperly installed insulation. It is the transfer of heat into and out of the home that directly affects energy costs.
It is important to note that each homeowner’s situation differs and the savings on energy costs may vary based on the insulation currently installed, the efficiency of the systems in the home, the home itself, and the insulation products used.
The interior integrity of a home is just as important to potential buyers as the exterior curb appeal. Studies show homes that are up-to-date with appropriate insulation are apt to have a positive market value versus homes with limited or under par insulation.
Two areas of the home that often need new insulation are the attic and the crawl space. Both areas are important in maintaining an energy efficient home.
For attic insulation, our insulation experts can see areas where the insulation has degraded or deteriorated. Our technicians will install new insulation to fill in gaps or areas where the damage has occurred. They do this by installing the cellulose insulation atop the existing material, reinforcing and filling gaps to create an energy efficient environment. The new insulation can also be installed directly between the joists in the attic.
When insulating crawl spaces, our technicians’ first step is to remove old or damaged insulation. Once removed, the technicians will install new insulation into the joists for a firm fit to achieve the appropriate R-value for energy efficiency.
The insulation materials used vary from state to state to comply with regulations and provide optimal insulation for the climate. In a majority of states we use Supreme Plus with Zone Defense® with the exception of Arizona, California, Idaho, Massachusetts, and Utah. In these states we use TAP insulation.
Our insulation is designed to keep the outside temperature from impacting the temperature inside your home and to keep your desired temperature inside. This effective insulation will not only allow you to better control the temperature throughout your home but will provide energy cost savings, minimizing overexertion of your home’s heating and cooling systems.
Our materials and process are designed specially to meet the recommended R-value, or level of insulation efficiency. For information about R-value, check out the information at the U.S. Department of Energy website.
This insulation product is environmentally friendly using a minimum of 80 percent of recycled materials when it’s manufactured. It’s also infused with a fire retardant to support fire safety within your home.
Insulation also helps to reduce noise disturbances. Whether residents are talking, kids are playing, televisions and stereos are turned up, or appliances are cycling on and off, insulation helps to reduce noise from room to room within the interior of the home. It also helps to provide a barrier from exterior noise such as traffic, construction or neighbors to create a more peaceful environment.
Homeowners can rest easy knowing the insulation is Energy Star certified and is backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty by Cell Pak.
