Three Types of Insulation for Your Home

Before deciding on insulation, it’s important to understand that different types of insulation are right for different applications. Different types of home insulation can change the temperature inside your house depending on the weather conditions outside.

We carry three of the most popular types of insulation:

  • Spray foam
  • Cellulose
  • Fiberglass

Spray Foam Insulation

It’s great to use in hard-to-reach areas such as attics, basements, interior walls and exterior walls.

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation was more popular in commercial buildings for many years. However, more and more homeowners are learning about the benefits of spray foam and are choosing it.

  • Enhances structural integrity: Spray foam adds strength to your home’s structure when applied to the walls, floors or ceilings.
  • Provides air and moisture barriers: Spray foam prevents air from seeping in or leaking out. It also helps prevent moisture from penetrating the home, keeping your home drier, healthier and more comfortable.
  • Has higher R-values: Spray foam comes in two formats: open-cell foam or denser closed-cell foam. Closed-cell foam has the highest R-value of any insulation. At Momper Insulation, we carry Homeseal N.A.I.S., an innovative closed-cell foam that is particularly good at stopping noise transfer.

Because spray foam must be applied carefully by a trained technician, we recommend you call our home insulation experts to handle your insulation installation.

Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose insulation materials are mainly recycled paper, recycled newspapers, finely shredded recycled cardboard and other kinds of paper. It consists of up to 80% recycled content. The loose-fill content is treated with chemicals to improve the protection of your home from moisture, heat and pests.

Benefits of Cellulose Insulation

The various benefits of cellulose insulation include:

  • Reduces waste: Cellulose insulation helps reduce the amount of paper and other recycled materials in our landfills.
  • Allows for easy installation: This type of material can be installed dry or wet and is blown in. No measurements, cutting or rolling out are needed with cellulose insulation.
  • Resists damage: Cellulose insulation is chemically treated to resist mold and fire and helps reduce the cost of energy in your home.

Batt & Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation

fiberglass batt insulation being installed in Crown Point, INFiberglass insulation is the most common form of insulation and is available in either loose-fill or batts. It’s typically made of tiny glass fibers, although some are made of cotton, mineral wool, plastic fibers, sand or recycled glass. It’s mainly installed between joists, beams and studs.

Blown-in (loose-fill) fiberglass is lightweight and ideal for oddly shaped crevices or cavities. Batt fiberglass, available in rolls and pre-cut panels, is typically used for floors or walls.

Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass insulation offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Helps with noise reduction: Fiberglass insulation offers natural sound-dampening properties, which reduce the level of noise coming into your home and significantly reduce sound transmission between your home’s rooms and floors.
  • Is environmentally friendly: Because fiberglass insulation contains a lot of recycled content, it helps reduce the environmental impact.
  • Provides moisture resistance: Fiberglass insulation is nonflammable and protects your home from water damage.
