New Home Construction Insulation
When talking about building insulation, it is imperative to know that this is any material installed to insulate a building for whatever purpose. There are several kinds of insulation types that you need to know about:
Acoustic insulation is mostly preferred by residential homeowners who would like to reduce noise pollution. If you have an underground ‘playroom’ or a recording studio, this type of soundproof insulation is best. This is also commonly used in 'walk-up' or apartment complex residences. Applications where there are high occurrences of louder noises should have this style installed.
We advise residential homeowners to have this service, especially if there is a garage that stores flammable liquids. A fire insulating material can reduce the burn rate by up to 60 minutes giving the homeowner enough time to put it out or call emergency services. As part of increased safety measures, it is advisable to have a smoke detector in the garage if dealing with flammable liquids. When considering fire rated insulation for your home, it is important to remember the safety of your family. Consult with us today to find out if your home is properly protected!
This is the most common type of insulation requested by the residents of Victoria. It is used to reduce the flow of heat, resulting in cooler summers and warmer winters. Basically, it does this by creating a barrier between the warm air in your house and the cold air outside. A sign of bad insulation are icicles forming around the edge of the roof.
Why Insulate Your Home?
We have specialized in providing insulation services to landlords who have just finished constructing their new homes. There are several advantages that you can expect when you have an insulated new house. The following are six reasons why you should live in an insulated home:
1. Increased Comfort
Think about it, why do we build new homes rather than buy an old one? The most obvious reason is that an old house does not come in the design and shape we envisioned when we were dreaming about it. It all comes down to one thing, comfort. Why would you spend a thousand dollars to live in a house so cold you would think you are in the arctic?
An insulated house will prevent heat loss during winter, meaning you will sleep in lighter blankets and spend less on energy bills. Upgraded insulation is crucial to having a warmer home. In Victoria we often see warmer summers; so keep your home nice and cool in the heat.
2. High Energy Bills Caused
By Poor Insulation
Poor insulation will result in heat loss which directly translates into money loss. We work hard for our money so investing in proper insulation will ultimately save you and yours monies. An uninsulated home loses more than 30% of its energy meaning that your furnace or air conditioner will have to work harder to cater for this loss. The more the power that gets used, the more your energy bill increases. In most new homes, energy is lost through the window, basement and attic. As professional insulation contractors we are trained to help you reduce your energy consumption due to heat movement.
3. Sound Pollution
Not everyone is lucky enough to get a 100-acre ranch without any neighbors around. Most of us have a property in a prime location, up close to our next door, noisy neighbors. If you are near a major road or highway, then the noise will be even more effected. The great news is you can prevent outside noise from penetrating through your walls and floors with the right kind of insulation.
Similarly, you can also do your own stuff, such as music recording and DIY projects, without bothering your neighbors with noise pollution. Along with the internal benefits of keeping noise levels managed within the household.
4. Moisture Can Make You Sick
Most people do know that moisture attracts mold, which can make them sick. Water can cause the decay of your roof, especially if it is made of wood. Also, it can destroy your drywall, increasing your overall maintenance costs. Moisture reducing insulations can help to decrease the risk of this occurring in your home. These come in a variety of options. Consult with us today to discuss your options.
6. Resell Value Will Be Higher
If you are buying a new house and intend to sell it in 5 to 10 years, you need to raise its resell value by air sealing it either using a spray foam or insulation batts. Also, research shows that insulated homes are more attractive than an non-insulated house in regards to resale value. This includes finished basement and attic projects.
