Wall insulation is any form of insulating material that is attached or placed within your walls. Professional wall insulation services harbour enormous benefits for homeowners and business owners alike. Wall insulation can make your home more comfortable, provide energy saving benefits, and environmentally friendly while saving you money.

Un-insulated homes and businesses are often colder and require much more energy to heat the property. Properly insulated walls save property owners money in heating costs while increasing the relative attractiveness of the business or home.

TYPES OF WALL INSULATION

There are a variety of types of insulation materials that can be used in your home or business. Different forms of insulation have different advantages and disadvantages, in regards to the material in general and the respective room, the material is applied to. Batts and Blankets are the most commonly used form of insulation, while loose-fill fibreglass, loose-fill cellulose, spray polyurethane foam and structural insulated panels can be the ideal forms of insulation materials for your specific needs. Call 4 Weather Insulation & Roofing with your Calgary wall insulation needs!

EXTERNAL WALL INSULATION

Increasing or developing insulation on the exterior of your home or business can have several benefits. Increased energy efficiencies, as well as property warmth and dryness, can all be found with external wall insulation. Attaching a layer of insulation to the exterior of your business or home, and then re-covering it with your desired form of exterior finishing has several lifestyles and property benefits.

INTERNAL WALL INSULATION

There are two separate opportunities to insulate the interior of your walls. During renovations or property construction, insulation batts can be installed between frame boards and around all appliances, like switch boxes and windows. Wall insulation can also be done as a property improvement project by pumping blown-in insulation or spray foam insulation into the wall cavities. The size of the wall cavity, as well as the location of the wall on your property, can dictate what style of insulation will be best. Spray foam insulation is more powerful and is ideal for walls that frame your property, though blown-in insulation can be less costly and provides sufficient R-value for interior walls.

WALL INSULATION R-VALUE

The R-value represents the relative density and levels heat flow resistance within each inch of the respective insulation material. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation holds heat in. Depending on the area in the home or business, and the location of the property, you may not require extremely high R-value materials to properly insulate the building.  Interior walls can require R-values of R-14, while exterior facing walls will likely need an R-value of R-28 or higher. Loose-fill insulation, insulation batts and foam insulation forms all have different and R-values that also vary, depending on the base material in the type of insulation.
