INSULATION

Heating and cooling costs can take a huge chunk out of your budget for household expenses, especially during the middle of the hottest and coldest seasons if you live in an area that experiences all four. Proper insulation is essential for saving money and comfortably enjoying your home life. And knowing you are also conserving energy and saving precious resources makes you feel like an even better homeowner.

Heat moves from warmer to cooler places. This is why during the cold seasons; your home loses heat to the outdoors and rooms not heated, such as garages and basements. During warmer temperatures, heat from outside will leak into the home. Several types of insulation for your home’s floors, walls and ceilings exist to hinder this transfer of unwanted heat.

Here are some examples of insulation materials the Handyman On Call can help you work with to maximize energy savings in your home:

Blankets: Rolled structures made from material like fiberglass that can be cut and fitted to the structure needing insulation.
Blown In/Loose Fill: Pellets of cellulose, fiberglass and other fibers used to fill cavities are blown in the hollow structure by a special piece of equipment used by a professional.
Foam Insulation: Using foam-like substances from various materials to seal cracks and spaces.
Rigid Insulation: Fibrous materials or plastic foams that come in the shape of boards and are often used in foundation and wall insulation.
Reflective: Aluminum foil-based material bound to plastic, paper, polyethylene bubbles or cardboard. Used for roof, floor and wall insulation jobs. Sometimes called a radiant barrier, depending on how it’s used.
