Why Insulate?

For Health and Safety

By tightly sealing around all crevices, Spray Foam reduces the amount of outdoor pollutants and allergens that enter the building structure. As Spray Foam and certain Fiberglass Insulations block moisture, mold and mildew growth are mostly stopped at the source. Our insulation methods are eco-friendly, letting you breathe a little easier.

For Efficiency’s Sake

Without proper air sealing, a building can lose a great deal of its efficiency through air leakage. It’s one of the primary causes of hot and cold spots that can cause discomfort for owners. That’s why proper insulation by certain specialists is so important

But as with any building product, insulation is only as effective as its installation and where it’s applied. Our Spray Foams and Fiberglass batts are only installed by qualified contractors. We team up with builders and homeowners alike to ensure secure, professional, and energy-tight insulation on all the buildings we work on. Investing in quality insulation is great, cost-effective way to instantaneously increase the value of your home or other building property.

In addition to increasing the valuation of your home, our insulation pays for itself by giving you immediate savings on your monthly energy bill! By investing upfront in Spray Foam or Fiberglass insulation, you could be saving 2 to 1 on utility bills, easily making up the difference of your initial investment within 1-2 years!

 

Some Terms to Know

On the Gulf Coast, there’s no better feeling than walking into a cool, crisp, air-conditioned home to beat the heat and humidity! Unfortunately, some of the best things in life don’t come for free. The chart below shows the percent of energy spent on AC vs. other activities.

A well insulated building can stop that precious cool air from seeping out of unnoticed cracks or drafty openings. Save the cool, same some money!

R-­value represents thermal resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-­value, the more effective the insulation, which means more utility savings, less HVAC wear and tear and greater overall efficiency. Superior Insulation will investigate the specifics of your R-value needs and devise an insulation strategy to address it.

Truly the first step to securing real energy efficiency is tightening the envelope of the building, thereby decreasing the inflow of unwanted outside air. This infiltration and leakage of air is a serious strain on monthly utility budgets. Superior Insulation uses up-to-date air sealing products to give your home or building a lasting seal.

Moisture doesn’t just enter a home; it comes from inside of a home in the form of showers, cooking, washing and other types of interior condensation. Vapor retarders help to regulate this moisture and block it from reaching ceilings, floors and exterior walls. Some insulation have pre-­applied, built-­in vapor retarders like Owens Corning’s kraft-­faced insulation.

Airborne noises such as conversation, running appliances, electronic devices and household equipment carry and echo through walls, ceilings and floors. Good insulation has the ability to drastically reduce such atmospheric interference, leaving rooms much quieter.
