Insulation is crucial for keeping your home comfortable and energy-efficient. It helps your heating and cooling systems perform efficiently and adds a layer of soundproofing to improve overall interior comfort.
If you’re a builder, homeowner or contractor in the process of a major renovation or new construction project, consider choosing a more eco-friendly insulation material that combats environmental pollution while providing better insulation against the outdoors.
At Hinkle Insulation & Drywall, our expert technicians in Austin can help you find a budget-friendly solution for a greener choice.
How eco-friendly your insulation is depends on several factors, like its material and how efficiently it insulates your home. Unlike traditional insulation, eco-friendly insulation is created from safe and sustainable materials that reduce your carbon footprint while providing better protection for your home and health.
Using eco-friendly insulation is not only a greener solution to reducing the emissions from heating and cooling systems, but it also works to keep your energy bills low by preventing energy loss during Austin’s summers.
Going green doesn’t mean compromising your home’s comfort. At Hinkle Insulation, we have a range of eco-friendly materials you can choose from to maximize your home’s energy efficiency. Here are four solutions to protect your interior space and peace of mind:
Up to 80% of cellulose insulation consists of recycled materials, making cellulose one of the most environmentally conscious options available because of efficient processing. This is because it’s composed of recycled newsprint and other recycled paper.
This insulation option provides the same level of energy efficiency and noise reduction while contributing to a healthier planet.
Advancements in home insulation are turning the surplus of old, discarded denim into recycled materials used to keep your home at the ideal temperature. About 85% of cotton insulation is derived from recycled denim. 15% of the remaining material is comprised of plastic treated with borate to deliver fire-retardant and insect-repelling protection.
With an insulation rating of about R-3.4 per inch, you can count on this insulation to keep your home fortified while preventing allergies or respiratory problems associated with fiberglass and other traditional insulation.
This naturally fire-resistant insulation provides an insulation rating of about R-3.0 to R-4.0 per inch. It also provides durability, works to regulate humidity, maintains interior comfort and dampens exterior sounds.
This insulation is made of sheep’s wool, which is often considered unusable for wool production. It’s then treated to provide added protection so you can enjoy a natural insulation option that reduces your carbon footprint.
Spray foam insulation gets into every crevice for thorough coverage and comes in two forms: open-cell and closed-cell. This insulation creates a tight seal for small gaps, crevices and cracks to provide climate control in your home’s envelope and around your HVAC system.
Knowing which eco-friendly insulation option is best for your home can be a bit tricky. An expert insulation contractor at Hinkle Insulation can help you determine what materials best fit your budget and home by providing a professional recommendation based on assessment.
