However, we know that many of our clients have little to no prior experience with insulation, and as part of our ongoing commitment to providing our clients with exceptional service, today’s post will focus on a few of the most common questions we’re asked about insulation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Insulation
What Is R-Value?
While we could easily write an entire blog on this topic, we’ll keep the explanation short in today’s post. R-value is a measure of how heat-resistant insulation is; the higher the R-value, the more resistant to heat the insulation will be. In other words, if you purchase insulation with a much higher R-value than your current insulation, then you can expect your home’s thermal performance to increase significantly throughout the year.
How Much Insulation Does My Home Need?
Insulating your home is one of the easiest ways to save money on your monthly energy bills, so we recommend insulating as much of your home as possible. Walls, ceilings, attics, basements, and crawl spaces can allow air to escape from your home throughout the year, in turn causing your utility bills to rise.
At Insulation Pros of Colorado, we know that it can be difficult to determine if the insulation in these areas needs to be replaced. We can provide you with a comprehensive energy assessment that locates exactly where energy is escaping from your home, allowing you to purchase just the insulation you need to fix the problem.

Will New Insulation Soundproof My Home?
Yes! While new insulation will not completely soundproof your home, you will almost certainly notice a significant reduction in the noise that comes through your walls. If you can still hear your neighbor’s music at all hours of the night or the sounds of a busy intersection, then you may want to have your windows and doors evaluated as well.
Why Should I Choose Insulation Pros of Colorado?
