Is an insulation installation really worth the investment? Should you re-insulate areas of a home that already has decent insulation? The insulation industry is full of myths and misconceptions, and Insulation Pros of Colorado is here to provide you with the truth! We clarified a few of the most common insulation myths we’ve heard in parts one and two of this ongoing series, so be sure to read through those entries if you’re looking for even more information about insulation. In today’s post, we’ll continue to bust some of the most common insulation myths that are still floating around.
Debunking More Insulation Myths
Myth #1: R-Value Is Indicative of Thickness
You’ve probably seen the R-value of different kinds of insulation, but do you know what it represents? The R-value of insulation is a measure of how well a given product resists heat flow, and many people are under the impression that R-value and thickness correlate perfectly. However, this isn’t always the case. Thick insulation can insulate poorly, and thin insulation can actually be much more efficient than bulkier options. You can trust the professionals at Insulation Pros of Colorado to help you find the right product for your home!
Myth #2: Insulating One Area Forces Air Out of Another
Have you ever heard that insulating your walls or ceiling will force warm air out of your home through another area? Adding insulation to one part of your home will never cause heat loss in another area, nor will it increase the amount of heat being lost in under-insulated areas. If you’re worried about energy loss in general, then you should get in touch with our talented insulation contractors to request a free, no-obligation home inspection!
Myth #3: DIY Insulation Installations Are Easy
There are a number of home improvement projects that can be tackled by almost anyone, there are some that require a bit of skill, and then there are some that should always be left to the professionals. When it comes to insulation installations, you should always get in touch with a professional installation company that can ensure that the entire job is performed safely and effectively. Installing insulation requires a great deal of specialized equipment, as well as knowledge of proper techniques and safety procedures to implement throughout the installation process.
Instead of spending a significant amount of time and money trying to install insulation on your own, just give Insulation Pros of Colorado a call and we’ll be happy to make sure that the entire process goes smoothly!
