Floor insulation isn’t as big of a bang-for-your-buck as attic and wall insulation are, but it can help lower energy costs by about 5%. And it solves a common problem: cold floors on bare feet!
Fiberglass insulation is used in sub-floors. We install it by stapling the batts down under rods in the floor.
Similarly, ceiling inject insulation works similar to wall insulation installs, with small holes that allow us to pump insulation. If it ever sounds like someone is walking on your head or you can hear a downstairs television while you’re trying to sleep upstairs, ceiling inject insulation is the way to go.
Tip #1: Floor and ceiling inject insulation will quiet down a room
Floor insulation is beneficial if you have hardwood or tile floors. Insulation under the floor reduces the noise from footsteps, paws, and your kids screaming upstairs!
Tip #2: Floor insulation reduces humidity and moisture
A lot of moisture works its way up from the ground. Depending on the foundation of your home, that moisture can work its way up into your home through the ground floor. Floor insulation can serve as a moisture barrier and protect the wood and frame of your home.
We do this by installing thick, 6-millimeter visquine plastic sheeting directly on top of the soil. The sheeting creates a moisture barrier that prevents moisture from penetrating your floors and walls.
Tip #3: Floor insulation is safe and doesn’t deteriorate
Floor insulation’s fiberglass material doesn’t degrade. And unlike old insulation systems of decades ago, fiberglass doesn’t “settle” into a compressed mass, either.
