Our Insulation Services
Properly installed insulation can reduce stress on your HVAC system, and may lower your monthly energy expenses. When you work with HSI, our team will expertly equip your home with your choice of the following types of insulation:
Cellulose insulation is environmentally-friendly and made from recycled materials that have been treated for fire resistance. This type of insulation is blown into the attic, or wall cavities, and can easily be filled around tight areas, such as beams, pipes, and wires.
This type of insulation doesn’t contain any fiberglass, eliminating the risk of irritation or rash upon contact. It is also best used for existing walls, open new walls, and unfinished attic floors.
Made up of a caulk and foam mixture, air sealing is an effective method for stopping air leakage and is perfect for filling cracks and holes found in your home. Air sealing can be applied to the following areas:
- Plumbing and wiring through floors, walls, and ceilings
- Attic access hatches and drop-down stairs
- Gaps around window and door trim
- Electrical outlets and switches
- Rim joists in basements or crawl spaces
During winter months, rim joists become cold and condensation can form around them, resulting in mold and rot. In order to prevent these issues. Rigid foam insulation will also preserve your rim joists, and block out moisture. Rigid foam boards are also often installed in basements and crawl space walls for improved insulation.
