Spray Foam Insulation Redmond
Polyurethane foam insulation is created by combining isocyanates (A-side) and polyol resins (B-side) through a chemical reaction. When sprayed from a foam gun, the substance expands and fills in crevices and gaps in your attic or crawl space before hardening. This insulation material is highly efficient for sealing attics and crawl spaces.
Fiberglass insulation typically comes in batts that can be rolled or placed on various surfaces, such as walls, floors, or ceilings. Blown fiberglass is increasingly popular and has become a significant aspect of our insulation work. This type of insulation is produced by combining recycled glass with natural sand.
Cellulose insulation is made from recycled paper, mainly newsprint, with a high recycled content of around 82-85%. The paper is reduced to tiny fragments during the manufacturing process, transformed into fibers, and then combined with flame and insect retardants. The most common retardants used are mineral borate or ammonium sulfate. Blown-in pellets are the primary form of cellulose insulation, but this type of insulation can also be created in batts.
Cotton insulation is gaining popularity among eco-conscious consumers. It’s made by repurposing recycled blue jeans and other natural cotton fibers from industrial waste. Cotton insulation typically consists of 85% recycled cotton and 15% plastic fibers, which are treated with boric acid for flame resistance. This insulation is non-toxic, and its installation doesn’t require respiratory or skin protection. Unlike fiberglass insulation, cotton insulation does not cause skin irritation or burning upon contact.
Benefits of Clean Insulation
Clean attic insulation can lead to lower energy consumption as it regulates temperature more effectively than old insulation. Your heating and cooling systems won’t have to work as hard or run as often, resulting in lower energy bills.
Additionally, clean insulation helps prevent moisture buildup in the attic. Excess moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth, which may cause the home’s structure to decay and negatively affect air quality.
