A properly insulated home provides both financial savings and reduced energy usage. It also maintains a higher air quality in your home and helps to create a healthy and safe environment for you and your family. Unfortunately, insulation does break down over time, and damaged insulation leads to higher energy costs and the possibility of mold outbreaks.
Our company’s specialty is in replacing deteriorating and damaged insulation with environmentally cleaner and stronger insulation. We also offer discounts, rebates, coupons, special offers, and vouchers from many major insulation manufacturers.
Inspecting and replacing your old insulation with correct R-value insulation offers several benefits to you as a homeowner in Issaquah:
Home insulation is designed to eliminate the transfer of heat through ceilings, walls, and the floors of attics and interior crawl spaces. Inconsistent insulation from room to room causes the air temperature to vary drastically throughout your home. If you feel significant temperature changes throughout your home, your insulation is not serving its intended purpose. Floors and walls that are cold to the touch, or increased heat in the attics or upper floors of your home often indicates problems with your insulation.
When all of the rooms in your home are different temperatures, your HVAC systems start working overtime, causing your energy usage to increase dramatically. Your next energy bill probably isn’t very fun to look at, either. Installing new insulation in the problem areas of your home can help to significantly improve the regulation of your home’s temperatures, and help get your utility bills back under control.
Insufficient insulation allows moisture to creep into the wooden structures of your home. This occurs via cracks or holes in roofing, attics, exterior walls, and crawl spaces. The resulting high-moisture environment, combined with the wooden beams and walls of your home, becomes a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. The wet Pacific Northwest, which we know all too well in Issaquah, sees plenty of moisture every year.
Mold and mildew buildup not only reduces the overall air quality inside your home, but over time can lead to structural damage from rot and decay. Using the correct kind of insulation can solve this problem. Insulation creates an airtight seal between the exterior and interior walls, ceilings, and roofing for your home. The airtight seal helps you lock out all of that moisture, mold, and mildew, while also working to preserve both the structure and air quality of your home.
The effects of damaged or insufficient insulation often cost more money than replacing them over time. Most households that replace their attic and crawlspace insulation can see savings of 30 to 80 percent. It’s simple: better insulation means better energy efficiency. With savings like that, new insulation installation in the Issaquah area would pay for itself in a matter of months.
Spray foam insulation is the number one recommended form of insulation currently available for use in residential homes. Resulting from the reactive combination of two composite materials, spray foam quickly forms an expansive and dense barrier.
In addition to having the highest R-value available, spray foam insulation fills every crack and crevice that normal insulation just can’t reach. Spray foam insulation locks out both moisture and outside air while keeping your warm or cool air inside your home.
The most significant advantage that spray foam insulation has over fiberglass or cellulose insulation is its complete water resistance. It seals and protects your attic and crawl spaces from moisture while its unique structure creates an environment that is inhospitable to both mildew and mold.
The toughened shell of closed-cell spray foam insulation deters pests from trying to make a home for themselves. Those cracks and crevices where your old insulation used to make great nesting materials for rodents. Closed-cell spray foam insulation significantly reduces the chances that rodents and other unwanted pests will move in as colder temperatures approach. We all know how chilly winters in Issaquah can be!
