Types of Insulation
When installing insulation, you have to consider the pros and cons of the different types of insulation, and their suitability that varies by setting. At Indianapolis Insulation Services, we have the experience and expertise to give you the guidance towards the optimal solution for you. Whether you’re considering attic insulation, garage insulation, commercial insulation, or one of our many other services, you can feel sure that you’re in safe hands once we’re serving you. Below we’ll give you a rundown on the various types of different insulation that we offer to our customers in the Indianapolis, IN area.
Foam insulation largely fall into two categories – spray foam insulation, and foam board insulation. Foam board insulation can be installed in various settings, such as floors, ceilings, attics, unfinished walls, and foundation walls. They can require high precision installation, with tape covering any gaps between the boards to stop drafts coming through. Of course, this is something our installers are more than capable of handling. Spray foam insulation can be installed in many irregular spaces due to its versatility. Both are considered highly effective options when installed correctly, particularly when concerned with moisture management, and our installers can more than handle the task.
Fiberglass insulation can either be blown in, or can be installed in a rigid form. This is one of the longest serving types of insulation, and it has been considered a low-cost and versatile option across that period. Blown in fiberglass insulation is excellent for adding insulation to existing finished areas, and around possible obstructions. The most significant benefit of more rigid fiberglass insulation is the high temperatures it can withstand. It should be made clear that an insulation type is only as good as it’s suitability in a setting – and our insulation pros have the understanding to make the right choices for you.
Cellulose insulation presents an adaptable option, providing high thermal performance and sound insulation properties in multiple settings. Often loose filled and blown in, cellulose also has the highest fire safety rating of the various insulation options. The chemical makeup of cellulose insulation also allows for superior mold and moisture resistance, and retains the advantages of it being possibly installed in awkwardly shaped or difficult to reach areas in your property. This is one of the great options for already-finished properties, and represents great value for money too.
