If your home is feeling drafty and you keep adjusting the thermostat, then now is the time to contact the insulation experts at Home Solutions of Iowa. During harsh Iowa winters, cold air can creep though poorly-insulated, vulnerable parts of your home, resulting in uncomfortable indoor temperatures.
However, with properly installed insulation, your home will be fortified from the winter weather. Insulation can also lower stress on your HVAC system, and may reduce your monthly energy expenses.
When you work with HSI, our team will outfit your Clive, Iowa, home with your choice of first-rate insulation:
Go with an environmentally-friendly choice, and insulate your home with cellulose. Crafted with recycled materials that are treated for fire resistance, cellulose is a smart and reliable choice. This type of insulation is also perfect for filling narrow spaces, as it is blown into the attic, ceiling, wall cavities, and around beams, pipes, and wires.
Cellulose is also a good choice for existing walls, open new walls, and unfinished attic floors, as it does not contain fiberglass, and will not cause skin rashes or irritation.
During the winter, joists can become cold and cause condensation to accumulate, which may result in mold and rot. To prevent this issue, rigid foam insulation is a great option. Rigid foam, often installed in basements and crawl space walls, will block out moisture and keep the chilly air out.
Air sealing is a smart choice, as it effectively plugs up cracks and holes with a strong caulk and foam mixture. This type of insulation stops air leakage and can be applied to various parts of your home, such as:
Attic access hatches and drop-down stairs
Electric outlets and switches
Gaps around window and door trim
Plumbing and wiring through floors, walls, and ceilings
