As a professional insulation company we get a wide range of questions from our customers each and every day. No matter what their knowledge is, it seems like some of the same questions pop up time after time. We want each of our customers to understand the product and understand the service, so we have gone ahead and put together some of the more frequently asked questions about insulation. Furthermore, here are some of the more frequently asked questions that we get about insulation.
1. What is R-Value?
R value is the measurement of the insulation power of a specific product or material. R stands for resistance so the higher the R value the more apt the insulation is to keep your home protected.
2. By adding insulation to my walls, ceiling and floors, how much money will I save?
Every homeowner wants to know how much money they are going to save as at the end of the day, that is why most of you add additional installation in your homes. The department of energy says that homeowners can reduce their energy bills from 10% to 50% by taking certain steps to seal up their home.
3. Can insulation help with soundproofing?
If you live in a busy or loud neighborhood or if you find noise interfering with your personal space inside your house, knowing insulation has soundproofing abilities is important. Some insulation options are better than others when soundproofing a house so be sure to tell your contractor if this is important for you.
4. How long does insulation last?
Just like any material, each insulation material isn’t the exact same. The industry average for fiberglass insulation which may be the most popular insulation material in New England, typically lasts around 100 years. If you have an older home, you should certainly look into when the last time insulation was replaced in your house.
