Residential Wall Insulation

The real reason why you should hire a wall insulation contractor…

Why is Insulating your walls important?

When you walk out into a blizzard, what is going to give you the most comfort? Do you grab a coat or a hat? Most of us grab a coat, and rightly so. The wind blows sideways, not from up above (unless it’s a tornado), so wall insulation is a common ‘rookie’ mistake when insulating.

Walls Regulate the temperature and comfort of the home. Winds blow sideways and hit the walls of the home first. Almost everything is porous on your walls, including brick, mortar and siding. Winds push the cold through your walls and into your home. For an example, this is why you put on a coat when you’re cold, protecting your body (walls). We want to dense pack the walls to stop the penetration and stop the furnace from turning on to keep the home at the same temperature. Wall Insulation varies in many homes.
