Types of Insulation We Work With
It is important when choosing insulation to choose a company that is specialized in many areas. At the Overhead Door Company of Fort Wayne, we specialize in many different types of insulation, including:
Consisting of up to 80% recycled content and requiring less energy to make than other insulation materials, cellulose is considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly types of insulation available. It can be installed in any area of a home—walls, attics, basements and crawl spaces.
There are three benefits to cellulose insulation, including:
- Cellulose helps reduce the amount of airflow through your home’s walls (therefore, it helps lower your energy bills), especially when combined with proper air sealing.
- Because it helps reduce airflow, cellulose can keep your home more comfortable and help improve the efficiency of your air conditioner (in the warmer months) and your furnace (during the cold season).
- Cellulose can help you save a lot of money on your energy bills and increase the overall energy efficiency of your home.
Fiberglass has been used to insulate homes for decades and we install both batts and blown-in fiberglass. This type of insulation is made of tiny glass fibers and is often installed in attics but can be used to insulate walls and crawl spaces as well.
The benefits of fiberglass also include:
- Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home or building
- Make your home or building more comfortable year-round
- Reduce noises from outside and also from inside your home or building between different rooms and levels
Spray foam insulation is applied wet and quickly expands into thick foam that fits snugly in wall cavities, crevices and gaps—therefore, it can be installed in hard-to-reach areas and around piping and wiring.
Spray foam insulation also:
- Adds structural strength to your home and adheres well to any surface it is sprayed on.
- Helps boost your home’s resale value.
- Helps inhibit mold growth because it does not absorb water.
- Does not easily settle or shrink in size after it’s installed.
The R-Value of Spray Foam Insulation
When considering their options for installing new insulation in Fort Wayne, many homeowners gauge the effectiveness of insulation materials based on their R-value. R-value refers to the capacity for insulation to resist the transfer of heat. A higher R-value demonstrates a higher ability for a material to insulate a space. Typical spray foam insulation provides an R-value of 6.5 per inch, which is more than that of cellulose or fiberglass insulation, which can have an R-value as low as 3.1. Customers really notice the difference in those R-values during the peak heat of summers in Fort Wayne, as well as cool winter nights.
