Modern-day thermal insulation comes in a variety of forms that all have their own unique characteristics. These characteristics give each type of insulation its own set of pros and cons that can make it difficult for homeowners when trying to decide which insulation is best for their home. This decision is best done with an expert from Northern Virginia Insulators.

What to Consider

The first thing is locating and assessing the problem. Room temperature variance, drafts, cold floors, high energy bills, allergies or many other factors. Next is which type of insulation is best for your home while realizing your home is made up of different sections with different needs and solutions. Different types of insulation can be considered best for different parts of your home such as the attic, walls, crawl space, and more.

Asking which type of insulation is best for the home and attic is one of the most common questions homeowners face when examining the different parts of their home. Although properly installed insulation is crucial throughout your entire house, making sure your attic is taken care of will help to relieve stress on the rest of your home as well. A properly insulated attic helps to make sure that money is not pouring out of your roof in the form of rising energy costs. If you do experience fluctuating temperatures or a rise in energy costs it may be time to figure out which type of insulation is best for your home and attic. The three best types of insulation for are fiberglass, cellulose, and spray foam, each of which is available today from Northern Virginia Insulators.

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass is a traditional insulation medium that many individuals are familiar with. Despite its fluffy, cotton candy-like appearance, fiberglass is actually made up of glass fibers that are dangerous when inhaled or embedded in the skin.

Spray Foam Insulation

Unlike fiberglass insulation which allows airflow, spray foam insulation acts as a barrier stopping the movement of air dead in its track. This sealing of air, as well as its expanding properties, makes spray from insulation a great choice for those questioning which insulation is best for their home or attic.

Cellulose Insulation

A third option considered to be one of the best types of insulation for your home and attic is Cellulose insulation. As one of the oldest options still available today, cellulose insulation is similar to fiberglass insulation in the way that it allows airflow.
