What is Insulation?
There are several different kinds of insulation but the most commonly referred is thermal insulation. Insulation is any material used to fill gaps and crevices to prevent or slow heat loss or gain. A well-insulated home will keep the temperature inside constant and comfortable, saving you from having to constantly run your air conditioner or furnace.
Types of Insulation
Batt insulation works best for attics with standard joint spacing. Typically made from fiberglass, cellulose, or other recycled materials, Batt insulation comes packed in rolls and is laid onto the attic floor.
Loose Fill Insulation
Loose fill insulation is much more flexible with the areas it can fill. Made from the same materials as batt insulation (fiberglass, cellulose, recycled materials), loose fill insulation is packed in bags and blown into place instead of being laid down in rolls.
Benefits of Insulation
Improved Home Comfort
Cracks and creases in your home not only let outdoor temperatures in but the air pollutants attached to them. Insulation keeps your indoor air exactly that, indoors. Used with Bill Howe indoor air quality systems and services, insulation will keep the air in your home as germ free as possible.
Without insulation, the comfort provided by air conditioners and heaters will seep right out of your home. Proper insulation allows your HVAC system to work less, saving you money on your energy costs. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, insulation can save you an average of 30% on utility costs.
“Bill Howe did a new installation of a Rinnai tankless water heater with a recirculating system and remote mc 195t us controller. He did a clean, professional and precise installation of the unit. I’m extremely pleased and will definitely tell others of the quality of workmanship by Bill Howe”
“One of Bill Howe’s Technicians came to replace our ancient hot water heater tank with a tankless water heater. He explained the steps to maintain the water heater, the technology available to start the water heater, and other useful information. He even helped us out with the gas line in the kitchen. He was very courteous, professional, took a great deal of time and effort to remove/install the water heater for our house. Bill Howe’s team has exceeded our expectations and we will go back to Bill Howe’s again for any future plumbing needs.”
