What is insulation?
To insulate is to “protect something by interposing material that prevents the loss of heat.” Insulating your home or business keeps the heat in. As you know, the cost of heating is expensive, so every bit you can save counts.
What options are there?
There are a whole bunch of different insulation options. However, some outperform the others. There are insulation types such as fiberglass, roxul, foam board, cellulose, and spray foam.
While each type could be used in different areas, spray foam is by far the best choice. It seals up voids to completely stop the air flow. Spray foam also has the highest R-Value per inch.
How can I save money?
No matter how you insulate, you will always save money on your heating bills. Insulation is an excellent investment for your home or business. It will pay for itself extremely quickly.

There are also some ways we could help you save money by using different types of insulation. For example, in the right setting, we could spray two inches of spray foam in an attic to seal it up. On top of that, we could install cellulose to get the overall R-Value up.
