What Type of Insulation Should I Choose?
The whole idea behind home insulation is to measurably improve energy efficiency. For Great Northern Insulation, it means recommending an insulation product and installation method that will deliver the best long-term mileage for the homeowner. The professionals at GNI install only high quality insulation products, with workmanship that is unequaled. Everything is warrantied, along with an assurance of customer satisfaction on every job, regardless of size.
One of the insulation options available from Great Northern Insulation is blown insulation. It’s available in cellulose or fiberglass, and when installed to code, provides satisfactory insulation results. This insulation is blown into an empty cavity like the attic, where it covers uniformly and even reaches into those hard-to-reach areas. Blown insulation provides satisfactory R-Values and is one of the most cost-effective installations in terms of project investment.
Another option from Great Northern Insulation is fiberglass batt insulation. These are typically installed in the attic and basement, and are manufactured to be non-combustible and moisture resistant. Fiberglass batts do not invite animals or insects, and with a professional installation will deliver good product life. With proper air sealing and ventilation, fiberglass batt insulation performs well, and offers satisfactory R-Value throughout the installation space.
All things considered,the best insulation product on the market is Spray Polyurethane Foam. For professional installers, SPF is the product with the highest performance by far. As experts in the industry, Great Northern Insulation recommends the SPF application for many parts of the home. Spray Polyurethane Foamprovides more benefits than other products – it makes a space totally airtight; it’s an air barrier and vapour barrier combined; and it provides far better R-Value than other comparable products. SPF is also highly compatible with other insulation products, giving GNI the flexibility of installing SPF alongside another product as a combination install.
