Insulation is truly one of the only phases of your
home construction that will actually pay for itself. The
realization of substantially lower heating and cooling
costs proves insulation upgrades outperform their
initial investment in as few as two years. Energy-saving
options available include the stabilized cellulose
wall-spray system or R-15 High Density fiberglass batts
in 2”x4” exterior walls instead of R-13 fiberglass batts
which are the code-required minimum.
The stabilized cellulose wall-spray system involves
“shooting” insulation between framing members and “stud
scrubbing” the product to provide a smooth face,
entirely filling the cavity. No other system can achieve
a completely uniform R-15 value throughout the wall.
Areas around wall receptacles, plumbing and wiring,
where traditional fiberglass batts are “tucked” (which
substantially diminishes their effectiveness, become a
non-issue with the stabilized cellulose wall-spray
system. Combined with a po9liseal foam package
addressing air leakage at cracks and voids around doors,
windows and top plate wiring holes, studies show a
whopping 38 percent reduction in air infiltration over
standard fiberglass batts with no foam package.
Another way to maximize savings is by increasing
attic insulation from standard R-30 (minimum per code)
to an R-40 or R-45. This is an extremely important area
to consider for reducing energy costs and lowering
utility bills. If your attic insulation is below 10
inches in depth, your are most likely in need of more
insulation and will benefit by adding to it.
Sound insulation packages in bathrooms, laundry and
master-bedroom walls and floor/ceiling assemblies are a
very inexpensive way to reduce sound transmission and
improve the quality of life in your new home.
