According to The U.S. Department of Energy, properly insulated exterior walls increase your home's comfort while helping you save on heating and cooling costs. But since wall insulation spaces between studs are hidden behind drywall and exterior siding, they're not as easily accessible as they are in the attic. When you work with Dr. Energy Saver technicians, we can figure out the best option for upgrading your wall insulation that doesn't require major reconstruction.
After analyzing your home's wall insulation levels, we will make suggestions for the most efficient and budget-friendly options for making improvements. These may include:
Injection Foam Insulation
Injection foam is a cost-effective insulation solution and also resists mold. We pump injection foam into wall cavities. It hardens into a stable, lightweight foam to form a thermal barrier.
Densely Packed Cellulose Insulation
This type of insulation is ideal for air sealing wall cavities and improving R-value.
Air Sealing and Weatherstripping
No matter what type of insulation you choose, these steps should always be included when upgrading wall insulation to prevent conditioned air from leaking out.
Spray Foam During Remodeling or New Builds
A great time to make sure your walls are sufficiently insulated is when your wall cavities are open. We can use spray foam insulation (which is the most effective) to provide complete air sealing and excellent R-value.
You'll be amazed at how much lower your energy bills can get when you have the proper amount of insulation in your walls. We'll be happy to perform a complete energy audit and let you know how we can help.
