Turn to the HSI for the following types of insulation:
When temperatures drop, rim joists can become cold and condensation tends to form, which results in mold growth and rot. In order to avoid these issues, rigid foam insulation can protect your home’s rim joists from cool air and prevent moisture build up. This, in turn, will stop the possibility of mold or rot from forming. Rigid foam boards are also a smart choice for basements and crawl space walls.
Cracks and holes often lead to air leakage, strain on your HVAC system, and unwanted drafts. This is where air sealing comes in. Made up of strong caulk and foam mixture, this type of insulation can be applied to:
Attic access hatches and drop-down stairs
Plumbing and wiring found in floors, walls, and ceilings
Cellulose insulation is an eco-friendly option that is made from recycled materials that have been treated for fire resistance. Cellulose is installed with a blowing technique that is perfect for the attic, wall openings, and narrow spaces around beams, pipes, and wires.
Cellulose is also safe and does not contain fiberglass, so there is no need to worry about developing skin irritation or rashes when in contact with the materials.
