Insulation in Brandon
Which Insulation Is Best for Your Home?
That’s right, insulation is not one-size-fits all. Your attic insulation may differ from what’s within your drywall, for adequate prevention of heat transfer, and to reduce the amount of energy you need to heat and cool your home.
Common forms of insulation include:
- Cellulose – This is made primarily from shredded and treated recycles paper. It’s commonly used as attic insulation and for retrofit projects due to it resistance to moisture, insects, rodents, and even fire.
- Loose Fiberglass Fill – This is considered an alternative to cellulose, as it is easier to be applied evenly. If your current insulation was improperly installed, then fiberglass fill will help even it all out for maximum efficiency.
- Blown-In Insulation – This can be made from fiberglass or from environmentally-friendly cellulose. Its best purpose is to provide insulations to oddly shaped areas and corners where traditional fiberglass batts used in many older homes may not reach.
Remember, the installation of insulation should always be done by a pro—we can help determine how your insulation is impacting your property’s thermal envelope—that is its ability to prevent heat transfer.

The Importance of Adequate Attic Insulation
Your attic is the most important place to have adequate insulation. This is because attics collect heat—in fact during the hottest of summer days the temperatures from radiant energy on the roof can get up to 130°F.
Effective insulation, however, keeps that heat from transferring into the rest of your home and making your air conditioner work harder than it should have to. On the contrary, in the wintertime the heat from your heating system can quickly rise out through the attic—unless you have the appropriate insulation barrier there to slow it down.
