Types of Insulation Used by Contractors

If you are building a new home or remodeling an old one, your contractor might have asked you what sort of insulation you wanted. Many people do not realize there are not only different categories of insulation as well as several ways to install it. Below are a few key terms to help you make an informed decision.

  • Thermal Insulation - The most common type used in home building, thermal insulation helps to decrease the amount of undesired heat that is gained or lost. It can also improve your energy bills since it lessens the need to lean on heat and air conditioning. Polystyrene is often used for insulating walls.

  • Acoustic Insulation - Also known as soundproofing, this type of insulation is used to limit the amount of outside noise that can be heard within the boundaries of the room. The common techniques used to do this include noise barriers and sound baffles, which are a kind of damping structure..

  • Fire Insulation - This sort of insulation consists of materials that are resistant to the destructive power of flames. Many homeowners do not realize that fireproofing a house does not make it unable to burn. Instead, lessens the damage by increasing the amount of time you have to put the fire out.

  • Polystyrene - A type of foam insulation that is widely used in buildings throughout the world. This is the most common form of plastic, with a few billion kilograms produced each year.

  • Spray foam - A type of insulation that is installed by a contractor with the help of a spray gun. It is made of two separate components that turn solid once combined together. Using this material inside your walls can cut both your building costs and energy bills.

    Insulation is an important construction component in any home or office, because it encourages sound proofing and maintains a consistent temperature throughout. There are many different types of insulation to consider for your commercial or residential project, and just as many insulation contractors to choose from. A little research goes a long way in helping you find the best foam or liquid insulation for your needs, as well as the best licensed company for the job. There are many different types of insulation that can be installed in a floor, wall or attic. Insulation rolls come in fiberglass, rock wool or slag wool, which also come in various thicknesses. Loose fill insulation also comes in these substances, only the insulation is blown or sprayed into the cavity. Rigid board insulation is usually made of either polystyrene or fiberglass and is often used on flat roofs or basement walls. Spray foam insulation is a liquid that is sprayed onto walls, ceilings or floor for sound proofing and energy savings. One of the greenest types of insulation today is cellulose insulation, while polystyrene is considered one of the least environmentally friendly materials. Thermal insulation is particularly adept at holding in heat, making it a good choice for maintenance of pipes and windows. With so many different types of insulation to choose from, it can be difficult to know whether to use foam or liquid, or fiberglass or cellulose. Each type of insulation provides its own benefits and drawbacks. Your industrial or residential builder or contractor can recommend the best insulation for your specific needs in your home or office.
