Benefits of Clean Insulation For Your Federal Way Home

Temperature Regulation

Insulation works to prevent the transfer of heat through the walls, ceiling, and floor of your home. When some rooms are better insulated than others, the air temperature from room to room can change dramatically. Cold floors, cold walls, or excessive heat in upstairs and attic areas are signs that your home is not well insulated.

Unwanted air transfer causes your heating and cooling systems to work overtime to compensate for the energy loss. The installation of new insulation, however, in key areas of your home, helps regulate the house temperatures and reduce your energy costs.

Keep Moisture Out

  • Holes or cracks in an crawl space allow moisture and water to enter into the structure of your home. Mold and mildew thrive in the dim, warm conditions of the attic, crawl space, and wall cavities. The presence of mold and mildew drastically decrease the air quality of your home and causes decay to a home’s structure.
  • Prescriptive air sealing, duct sealing, and the correct choice of insulation can lock out moisture and keep your attic and crawl space dry and toxin free.

Save Money With Crawl Space Insulation

Federal Way homes that lack proper insulation spend more money on their energy bills. Conversely, investing in crawl space insulation creates an average energy savings of 30% – 80% (depending upon the condition of old insulation), simply because the insulation enables their homes to be more energy efficient. Because of this, the insulation installation pays for itself within months.

Types of Crawl Space Insulation We Provide In Federal Way

Spray Foam Crawl Space Insulation

Spray foam insulation is made from two types of composite material. When sprayed out of the tip of the spray foam gun, the substance gradually expands, filling in the cracks and crannies of your crawl space before curing. Spray foam insulation is the most effective material for insulating your crawl space available.

Fiberglass Crawl Space Insulation

Fiberglass insulation is usually installed as large segments of insulation that are rolled or laid out onto a surface, such as flooring, ceilings, or in wall cavities. However, blown fiberglass is becoming more and more popular, comprising one of the main insulation jobs we’re asked to install in Federal Way. This type of insulation is made of a mixture of natural sand and recycled glass.

Cellulose

Cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper products, primarily newsprint. It’s recycled material content is very high, generally between 82-85%. The manufacturing process reduces the paper products to very small pieces, which are then fiberized and mixed with a flame and insect retardant, usually mineral borate or ammonium sulfate. Cellulose insulation is primarily found in pellet form as a blown-in insulation, but can be manufactured in batts as well.

Cotton

Cotton has become a favorite of the environmentally friendly Federal Way community. Recycled blue jeans have been used in its production, as well as other natural cotton fibers gleaned from industrial scrap. Most cotton insulations consist of 85% recycled cotton and about 15% plastic fibers, which are generally treated with boric acid as a flame retardant. Cotton insulation is non- toxic, and can be installed without respiratory or skin exposure protection.

Denim Insulation

Using recycled jeans, post-industrial denim and cotton, denim insulation is an eco-friendly insulation material for your home. Without the itchy fibers that many other types of insulation contain, denim insulation is just as effective as fiberglass and cellulose insulation. While it is more expensive than other types of insulation, if you’re looking for an earth-friendly insulation material, denim insulation is the type of insulation for your home’s crawl space.
