A quick lesson on home insulation and how it helps you save money

Heat flows naturally from a warmer to a cooler space. In the winter, this heat flow moves directly from all heated living spaces to adjacent unheated attics, garages and basements, or to the outdoors. In the summer, the opposite occurs: heat flows from the outdoors to the house interior. To maintain comfort, the heat lost in winter must be replaced by your heating system and the heat gained in summer must be removed by your air conditioner. Proper home insulation of ceilings, walls and floors decreases this heat flow by providing an effective resistance to the flow of heat.

Insulation is rated in terms of thermal resistance, called “R-Value,” which indicates the resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. The R-Value of thermal insulation depends on the type of material, its thickness, and its density. Installing more insulation in your home increases R-Value and the resistance to heat flow.

Why insulate? Understanding insulation and how it helps your home

Home insulation products and materials

Sunroc exclusively uses Johns Mansville insulation products, the only complete line of formaldehyde-free home insulation products. A Sunroc representative will work with you to determine the best insulation material to use in your home or new construction project.

Faced batts and rolls

Faced batts and rolls are lightweight, thermal and acoustical fiberglass made of long, resilient glass fibers. In all Johns Manville brand faced batts and rolls used by Sunroc Building Materials, the fibers are bonded with a formaldehyde-free binder to promote better indoor air quality. The facing serves as an integral vapor retarder, reducing the potential for mold and mildew growth and making faced insulation an appropriate choice for external walls. Faced batts and rolls are available in a variety of R-Values from R-11 to R-38.

Unfaced batts and rolls

Unfaced residential insulation is a lightweight, thermal and acoustical fiberglass. It is made with formaldehyde-free binder for better indoor air quality. Unfaced batts, available in R-Values from R-11 to R-38, are effective in controlling unwanted noise in internal walls.

Blown-in

Loose-fill fiberglass insulation utilizes a professional blowing machine for installation in a variety of settings, from open spaces to fill hard-to-reach areas, such as corners, edges and around framing. As a premium alternative to cellulose, blown-in insulation does not settle or decay, and can effectively provide insulation for the life of the home. Blown-in insulation is available is R-Values from R-11 to R-60.

Spider®

Spider® insulation is a formaldehyde-free, spray-in fiberglass insulation system that fills new and existing cavities without gaps or voids in the insulation coverage for superior thermal and acoustical performance. Ideal for both remodels and new construction, Spider® insulation is naturally fire-resistant and does not promote the growth of mold and mildew. This type of insulation also installs faster and easier and does not settle over time.

Poly-encapsulated

Poly-encapsulated insulation is wrapped in plastic for a more comfortable installation with less itch and dust. Its core is made up of formaldehyde-free fiberglass insulation with R-Values up to R-38, with superior acoustic properties to reduce sound transmission through interior and exterior walls, ceilings and floors.

Spray foam/polyurethane

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is an insulation innovation that provides superior performance and advanced energy efficiency. It’s so effective that thinner applications can rival and exceed the performance of traditional insulation products. Combining two liquid components at installation creates cellular spray foam that expands and fully adheres to surfaces. The spray foam offers superior insulating properties and effective air isolation. Spray foam insulation requires an ignition or thermal barrier after installation to comply with International Building Code (IBC) requirements. All fire-protective requirements detailed within Section 2603.4 of the IBC are mandatory.
