Bellevue’s weather and climate change drastically from season to season. Because of this, your home requires insulation
that can accommodate the changes of temperature your home will experience throughout the year. Your home must endure the warm months as well as the cool parts of the year when animals begin to seek shelter in your home.
Insulation traps heat and cold in your home, keeping it from passing beyond the floors, walls, and ceiling of your home. Old or poor insulation lets air escape, preventing your home from regulating temperature effectively.
Cold floors and walls, as well as excessive heat in your attic and crawl space, are sure signs of improper insulation. If you discover this is the case in portions of your home, your heat and air conditioning system is working extra to keep your house at the desired temperature. Locating these areas where your home has patchy insulation and replacing or repairing old, bad insulation will solve this problem.
As an added benefit, new insulation lessens the strain on your homes air conditioning system. This will lower your energy costs and extend the life of your AC system as it will no longer have to work as hard to cool your home.

Dark, warm spots are perfect locations for mold colonies to spread and infest your home. Remove and replace moldy insulation immediately with clean insulation to ensure your home air remains toxin free and your family breathes safe air.Money Savings
Compromised insulation can be the source of high energy bills and long-term health costs. For this reason, the investment in new properly installed insulation in your Bellevue home can often pay for itself in a matter of months.
Best Insulation for Bellevue Homes
The best type of insulation for most homes is spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation uses chemical reactions from two materials that bond on contact, expanding into cracks and holes to create a dense foam barrier.
Spray foam insulation also has the best R-value. By design, it fills cracks and gets into hard to reach places, keeping moisture from entering your home and locking in heat and cold to further regulate temperature.
Fiberglass and cellulose insulation are not 100% water resistant, however, spray foam insulation is 100% water resistant. Additionally, spray foam compounds prohibit the growth of mildew and mold as well.
Because it fills cracks and holes with a hard barrier, spray foam insulation presents a difficult problem for animals. While other insulation is great nesting materials for insects and rodents, due to its hardened nature, animals are far less likely to infiltrate your home and nest in spray foam insulation.
