What is insulation?

Insulation is a popular material used in almost every building site. Insulation materials are used to insulate and pad between walls, in ceilings, and around pipes.

How is insulation useful?

Insulation helps in a variety of different ways. Insulation is especially helpful for heat trapping. This means that insulation blocks heat from entering or escaping where it needs to be. For example, insulation helps prevent heat loss by trapping heat into your home and blocking the cold from entering. During the warmer months, it does the opposite– much like a thermos, it keeps buildings cool and warm when you need it. It helps to keep your spaces temperature regulated and that, in turn, saves you a lot of money in heating and cooling costs.

Insulation can also help for noise reduction. The insulation between walls and between levels of multistory buildings can help block sound. Quality insulation can also help to increase the value of your property on top of all of the energy savings.

Are there many types of insulation?

There are quite a few choices when it comes to insulation. There are different materials, different insulation ratings, and also different modes of installation.

Choosing the right type of insulation can be a daunting task, but there are a few key things to look at to help choose the best options. There are also professionals, like those at Southern Commercial Materials, that have extensive experience and can help you make the best choices.

How do I choose the best insulation?

With so many options to choose from, you want to make sure you are making the best choices for insulation for your space. There are many factors to consider. Here are just two main key points to consider when choosing insulation materials:

Type of Insulation: There are many types of insulation. To name a few, there is loose fill insulation, batts, rolls, and more. Each type of insulation has it’s own benefits, especially when it comes to installation.

R Value: The R-Value is a measure of how thermally resistant the insulation is. Insulation materials have tiny bubbles of trapped air that help to block the transfer of heat through the material. The effectiveness of the heat trapping is measured as the material’s “R-value”. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation works.

Southern Commercial Materials is the best company to help get you started choosing and purchasing the very best insulation materials. They have the experience and knowledge to help you determine which materials will be the most effective for your space and needs.
