The effectiveness of new construction insulation depends on several factors, including the type of insulation used, the proper installation, and the climate of the building’s location.
In new construction buildings, properly installed insulation can be very effective in reducing heat transfer and improving energy efficiency.The R-value of insulation refers to its thermal resistance, which is a measure of how well it can prevent heat transfer. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation is at reducing heat transfer. For example, if a building is located in a colder climate, insulation with a higher R-value may be required to keep the building warm in the winter.
For new construction, the most common insulation types are spray foam insulation, blown-in insulation, rigid foam board insulation, fiberglass insulation, and cellulose insulation. Each of these insulation types has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose the right type based on the specific needs of the building and the climate of the location.
Proper installation is also crucial for the effectiveness of new construction insulation. Insulation must be installed correctly to ensure that it is working as efficiently as possible. Poorly installed insulation can result in gaps, which can reduce its effectiveness.
Our highly experienced and National Comfort Institute-certified HVAC specialists can remove and replace your air ducts with new, energy-efficient air ducts that will provide many years of comfort to you and your family. While replacing air ducts, we measure air flow in each room and check for accuracy. We ensure that the air ducts have straight runs, elbows are installed where needed, and your air ducts are not kinked. Choosing the correct size and installing air ducts correctly is extremely important. Otherwise, you can end up cooling down or heating up the attic instead of your home.
In summary, new construction insulation can be very effective in reducing heat transfer, improving energy efficiency, and reducing energy costs in buildings. But to get the best results, it is important to select the right insulation type and ensure proper installation.
Here’s what our Amazing Clients have to say till now.
Insulation Commandos did a great job with my attic insulation replacement. They protected the floor and walls carefully, finished the job in an efficient timely manner and and cleaned up afterwards. Thank you!
Insulation Commandos did an excellent job. They removed and took away debris, vacuumed, sanitized and plugged rodent holes. They left traps to ensnare any stray rodents. They arrived exactly on time and finished sooner than we expected.
I recently had Insulation Commandos and rodent-proof my attic and replace the insulation and heating ducts. They also cleaned and insulated the crawl space and installed a vapor barrier. Throughout the process, they were pleasant, professional, and responsive; they handled the project swiftly and the work was performed in a careful (and clean) manner. I am happy to recommend them
This company is AMAZING! From the first encounter with the salesman to working with the installers, my experience was excellent! I had my old (35-year-old) insulation removed, my old ductwork removed, and all new installed. The process was flawless, and I was very happy with the work done
