Wall Insulation

How energy efficient is your home? Not sure? Check your energy bills. If they have been higher than normal, your home isn't as energy efficient as it could be.

So, what's next? How do you tell what the source of the problem is? Professional home insulators will be able to tell you whether you need more insulation or not. Besides high energy bills, if you're noticing outside noises sound louder even when the windows are closed, it's warmer or colder by your windows or your windows have excess condensation or a thin glaze, it may be an indication of insufficient insulation.

Your walls are some of the best places to insulate, hands down. When it comes to insulating walls in Calgary (and anywhere else), there are a couple things to keep in mind: First, exterior wall insulation and interior wall insulation are essential to maximizing your home's energy efficiency. Additionally, insulating walls with fiberglass or cellulose (as opposed to radiant barrier) is recommended.

Both exterior wall insulation and interior wall insulation offer a number of benefits, whether cellulose or fiberglass is used. If you have tiny cracks and holes in your home's envelope, we may insulate your walls with cellulose, which is effective at reducing air infiltration. A lot of air leaks out of your house through the walls.

Wall insulation also:

  • Can lower your energy bills
  • Make your home more comfortable year round
  • Muffle outside noises
  • Ensure uniform temperature throughout your home
