Home Insulation

Insulation serves as a barrier that protects your home’s thermal envelope, which keeps the outdoor air out and your conditioned air—both hot and cold—inside. When your whole home is insulated, it maintains its temperature much more effectively and efficiently, saving you money while keeping you comfortable.  Roof Insulation is one of the key methods of keeping one’s house at optimum temperature.

It helps to keep the external heat away during summers and vice versa during the winters. Home insulation are basically of two different types; reflective insulation material and bulk insulation material in the form of blankets, blown in cellulose, sprayed foam and rigid boards. Most of the home, commercial building and metal structure unite both of material in the form of foil and bulk insulation to create complete insulation system. However in both hotter and colder condition insulation roof with reflective insulation material is quite enough to get better control from unwanted temperature gain or loss and moisture penetration.

Choice of insulating material depends on considerations such as –  Cost of insulating material, area to be covered for insulation, standard of insulation to be required,  Cost of energy consumed for heating and cooling, reasonable fire proof, non-absorbent of moisture, not liable to undergo deformation, resistant to attack of small insects.

The most common type of insulation, fiberglass is composed of glass, which is used in a wide variety of applications. As an insulator, fiberglass slows the spread of heat, cold, and sound in homes. By trapping pockets of air, it keep rooms warm in the winter and cool in the summer, thereby reducing a home’s energy consumption.
