Choosing an Insulation ContractorChoosing an Insulation Contractor

Florida your attic is a great way to reduce energy costs and keep conditioned air inside your home. It also helps prevent temperature fluctuations throughout the house that make your HVAC system work harder and wear out faster. But you must choose the right contractor to install attic insulation.

How Attic Insulation Improves Energy Efficiency

Many homeowners find that searching online is the quickest way to find an insulation company serving their area. Other ways to find a professional are by asking friends and family members for recommendations, or checking with local utilities or the Insulation Contractors Association of America (ICAA).

When choosing an insulation contractor, you should first clarify your goals and how insulation can help you achieve them. This will help the contractor create a targeted plan for your home and determine which type of insulation is best suited for you. It will also determine the cost of the project.

You should know that cellulose, fiberglass, and mineral wool are common types of insulation. Fiberglass batts or rolls are flexible sheets of fibrous materials that lay within the standard spacings of wall studs and floor joints, and can be cut to fit into uneven spaces and to allow pipes and wires through. They are available in different thicknesses and can be purchased with flame-resistant chemicals for areas that will be exposed in your home. Blown-in loose fill insulation is made of loose fibers or foam pellets that are blown in using special equipment, and it’s ideal for unfinished attics with lots of small spaces to fill.
