One of the most effective and efficient ways homeowners can control energy bills is to insulate their homes from top to bottom. Insulation is one of the least expensive investments you can make in home improvements, while reducing your energy bills at the same time.
Insulating interior walls is critical to ensuring a quieter, more pleasant atmosphere in your home. Without proper insulation, noise from plumbing, ventilation, appliances, televisions, stereos, teenagers and even simple speech can carry through an entire house. The Blow In Blanket® System, or BIBS, is an excellent solution for interior wall insulation. By filling all voids and gaps within the walls, and installing insulation around pipes and plumbing fixtures, such unwanted noise can be significantly reduced.
There are many insulation materials available, including Rockwool, Fiberglass, and Cellulose, which are available in both blown and batt/roll types. Our expert technicians evaluate each situation, and recommend and install the type of insulation best suited for the home or building.
The Blow In Blanket® System, or BIBS, gives each home a custom-designed, seamless, thermally efficient, sound reducing blanket that completely fills any void. BIBS is a patented process that blows fiberglass insulation into cavities behind netting. The process requires installation techniques designed specifically for BIBS. When installed at recommended density levels, it yields an R – 15 in 2”x4” construction and an R – 23 in 2”x6” construction.
The attic is the most critical area to insulate in your home. The local utility companies recommend installing insulation rated at R-30 or R-38 in your attic. At Tempco, we have experience at first inspecting and determining what R-value insulation is required to adequately insulate your attic, and then installing it while taking care to avoid covering recessed lights, fans, and other fixtures.
Poorly insulated walls not only waste heat, but cold walls significantly reduce the comfortable living space within a room. To install insulation in an existing structure, we first carefully remove small sections of the outside surface, and then drill a hole in the sheathing to permit access for the blown-in insulation that will fill the stud cavities. Following installation, the exterior walls are expertly restored.
Are you in need of insulation removal? Tempco Insulation can do that! Insulation may need to be removed for a variety of reasons. Since Insulation is paramount to the proper heating and cooling of your home, it is important that it remain free of debris, moisture, pests, or other factors that could be decreasing the productivity of your insulation.
