What is Exterior Wall Insulation?
Most homes built nowadays have insulation put inside all exterior walls during construction. This exterior wall insulation fills in around wires, pipes, and electrical boxes to keep outside air from getting inside your home. If your home does not have insulation in the walls, there are two methods that can be used to install it. Adding insulation can be accomplished from inside the home or outside. Completing this process outside the home is often the preferred method, but it can only be done if you have siding, shingles, or sheathing on the outside of your home. Once exterior wall insulation is added to your home, you’ll find that it’s easier to control the interior temperature of your home.
Why You Should Install Exterior Wall Insulation
You may be wondering if exterior wall insulation is a necessary investment for your home. While this process does come with an upfront cost that you may be hesitant to pay, the potential savings and added convenience additional insulation provides is worth the cost. Not to mention the fact that having proof of this improvement could up the resale value of your home should you decide to sell it. At NetZero Insulation, we work to provide this useful home upgrade at an affordable price, so you can improve your home without breaking the bank. We know you’ll enjoy all the benefits this addition will provide, including:
- Improved Comfort: Because insulation helps to keep the outside air from getting into your home, you’ll have better control of the interior temperature. This will help keep your family and guests comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside.
- Increased Efficiency: Added insulation will help improve the efficiency of your home because your heating and cooling systems will not have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable. This means less unnecessary wear on your HVAC systems.
- Lower Energy Costs: With your heater and air conditioner running less, you’ll use less energy, which will lower your utility bills each month. This means that adding exterior wall insulation will pay for itself over time.
The Installation Process: What to Expect from Our Team
Retrofitting your home with exterior wall insulation is a relatively straightforward process. You won’t have to worry about a major disruption to your daily life, as the project can usually be completed in a single day. The process will begin with us drilling a small 2-inch hold into each stud cavity. We will then blow in loose-fill insulation to a specific density to completely fill the cavity and provide an extra layer of insulation. Once we finish filling each cavity, the hole is patched and sealed air-tight. The best part about adding exterior wall insulation in this manner is that it often achieves a better R-value than if traditional batt insulation was installed at the time of construction. With a typical 2×4 wall cavity, we can achieve an R15, while a typical 2×6 cavity can achieve an R24.
