Where Do I Add Insulation to Keep Out the Cold Air?
The cold wind in the Pacific Northwest can send chills through every part of your home. You could keep adjusting your thermostat, but you’ll pay the price in higher energy bills.
A better strategy is to invest in insulation. Here are a few benefits you’ll enjoy:
- Lower energy bills
- Improved barriers to keep out moisture
- Less outside noise
- No more drafts
- Improved indoor air quality (IAQ)
Stop paying higher energy bills! Quit forcing your heating and cooling equipment to work overtime to keep everyone comfortable! Adding the correct amount of insulation to your new home project makes a world of difference.
What Are Some Spray Foam Insulation Benefits?
The three main benefits of our high-performance spray foam are:
- Cleaner air—Spray foam insulation controls moisture vapor movement and prevents new mold, mildew, and bacterial growth. Additionally, it improves indoor air quality by helping block dust and pollutants.
- Lower energy costs—It fills gaps and voids to create an air barrier that aids in eliminating leaks and energy loss. It also provides a superior R-value of 6.8 at 1 inch, significantly reducing heating and cooling costs.
- Quieter home—It reduces outside noise by helping create a seamless, airtight insulated barrier.
Air Sealing Your Portland Home
Air sealing your new home is a critical part of the insulation process. It closes any holes or cracks in your home to keep the conditioned air inside and prevents the outdoor air from getting inside.
Air sealing and insulating your home can lower heating and cooling costs by as much as 15 percent. Cracks and holes are no way to ventilate your home, mainly because you have no control over how much air leaves or enters your home.
Your attic space stays warm and dry with air sealing and insulation. You help minimize the risk of mold growth in hidden parts of your home. Doing so protects your health and your property.
Live in a noisy neighborhood? Air sealing helps reduce noises from the outside. It’s a smart investment.
Most people use fiberglass insulation in their attics. It’s more affordable than other options, and you can install it on your own. Be sure to wear protective clothing if you do install it—fiberglass is a known skin and lung irritant.
Cellulose insulation also makes a good option. Cellulose insulation is environmentally friendly—it’s typically made from recycled paper products. It’s treated with fire retardants and borates to meet local fire codes and discourage pests from nesting in your attic.
Spray foam insulation is the best performing material but also the costliest
