When it comes to keeping a healthy and efficient home, proper insulation is crucial. Whether it’s in the attic, crawl space, or walls, insulation helps maintain high air quality, energy efficiency, and comfort for you and your family. The insulation team at Clean Crawls provides expert installation and inspection services for homeowners throughout the Marysville area.
Most homeowners don’t give their attic or crawl space a second thought. But what many don’t realize is that insulation can be damaged or past expiration, resulting in an unprotected home. Installing brand new, high R-value insulation is extremely beneficial to your home and family. Listed below are some of those benefits.
Without insulation, heat is transferred through your attic and crawl space walls, floor, and ceiling, creating an uncomfortable environment and forcing your HVAC system to work overtime. While a full inspection is recommended, you can tell if your home is struggling to regulate temperature by comparing rooms in your home. Cold walls, cold floors, and excessive heat upstairs are all signs of inadequate insulation.
As you can imagine, too much air transfer causes your furnace and air conditioning unit to make up for the energy loss. This drives up energy costs, especially in the summer and winter. By installing new insulation, you can ensure that your home temperature is properly regulated and your monthly energy bill will be lowered.
Excess moisture in the attic and crawl space is never a good sign. When water settles inside your home, mold and mildew quickly begin to grow, dramatically decreasing your home air quality and damaging the interior structure. Professional air sealing and insulation installation will keep moisture outside where it belongs. Don’t let mold spores be spread throughout your house by ignoring the signs of water damage in your attic and crawl space.
As mentioned above, insulation is the best way to lower monthly energy costs. Homeowners who invest in proper crawl space and attic insulation can save up to 80% on energy bills, depending on the condition of the old insulation. All it takes is properly installed insulation to make a home more energy efficient. If you’re turned off by the idea of buying all new insulation, consider that by creating a more energy efficient home system, new insulation can pay for itself in just a few months.
At Clean Crawls, we have learned through experience that spray foam insulation is the most effective form of insulation available. Made of two composite materials that react to create a dense, protective foam, it has the highest R-value of any insulation on the market.
Because spray foam insulation expands, it fills any holes or cracks that would otherwise be left open for air to pass through. It is highly effective at preventing the transfer of precious heat from your furnace, as well as dangerous moisture from outside.
Spray foam insulation is completely water resistant, unlike many other types of insulation. It can seal your attic from mold, rot, and mildew by keeping moisture out of the attic and crawl space, and if it does happen to get wet, its compound structure prevents mold from growing.
Rodents are a major threat to your attic and crawl space. The tough exterior of spray foam insulation keeps rodents from burrowing in and nesting, and it lowers the chances of you having to deal with a rodent infestation.
