Whether you’re renovating your current home or a new build, the type of insulation chosen is an important consideration. Insulation serves many purposes, including temperature regulation, soundproofing, and fireproofing. However, there are many different kinds of insulation out there, and it can get confusing on which one is best for the space you’re insulating. From Metro Standard Insulation in Surrey, here are some of the different types of insulation and where they would be installed in your home.
Batting, or BATT insulation, is a common insulating material for residential buildings. It’s easy to install, and it fits snuggly into your walls to keep air from coming in or out. BATT insulation can be installed in most rooms in your home, including living spaces, bedrooms, and basements. However, in rooms that are prone to moisture like bathrooms or laundry rooms, it may not be the best idea to use this kind of insulation. BATT insulation performs best in spaces where it can stay dry, so watch out for that if installing this insulation in your home.
Spray-foam insulation is rising in popularity, for good reason. It’s quick and easy to install. Spray-foam comes with the huge benefit of the spray being able to go in those hard-to-reach places, or strange nooks your home may have. It will insulate the spaces effectively, and keep your home protected from airflow, fires, and sound. Spray-foam insulation can go pretty much anywhere and becomes its own vapour barrier. Living spaces, bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry rooms, attics, mud rooms, and another other room in your home can benefit from spray-foam.
Loose insulation, also referred to as blown-in insulation, is most commonly used in attics or crawl spaces. It can also be blown in walls and other spaces. It fits in tight corners to insulate the entire space. Like the others, it will help with your energy bills as the temperature of your home will remain regulated, and keep your attic, crawl spaces, and other rooms warm with a well-insulated ceiling. While having fewer uses than other types, it’s long-lasting and efficient.
