Energy Saving Insulation

Insulating your home may not be the easiest project on a to-do list, but the rewards can be well-worth the effort when you let 911 Restoration’s trained technicians make life a little more comfortable by insulating your home!

Why Insulate Your Home

Warm air naturally flows toward a cooler space but when your new insulation is installed by 911 Restoration technician’s your new home insulation will resists that natural flow, slowing the flow of hot air from indoors to outdoors during the cold months, and doing the opposite when temperatures climb outside. Professional installation by 911 Restoration technicians will effectively insulate your home by getting rid of the drafts and by keeping the heat in your home longer you can keep your energy bills from getting too high, saving you money and new home insulation could also improve the value of your home.

Types of Insulation

There are several types of insulation, our trained 911 Restoration technicians will determine which insulation you have at your location and will recommend the most effective and efficient insulation for your home.

Recommended Levels of Insulation

Insulation levels are specified by R-Value. R-Value is a measure of insulation’s ability to resist heat traveling through it. The higher the R-Value the better the thermal performance of the insulation, all 911 Restoration’s qualified trained technicians will determine what levels of insulation are cost-effective for different climates and locations for your home.

Vermiculite and Asbestos

Vermiculite is a "loose fill" insulation that looks like a mixture of small grade gravel nuggets, but is soft when squeezed, just like popcorn. It's best to treat vermiculite the same as known asbestos containing materials. Although, 911 Restoration is NOT an abatement company our technicians will advise you to seek a qualified abatement company remove any asbestos material before installing your new home installation.

Dangers of Asbestos

According to the EPA and CDC, limitations in current testing methods might not accurately determine if any vermiculite sample contains asbestos. Just like other asbestos containing materials, the best practice is to not do anything to disturb the material that could send asbestos fibers into the air. If you have vermiculite insulation in your home, you should assume this material may be contaminated with asbestos and be aware of steps you can take to protect yourself and your family from exposure to asbestos.

If you have vermiculite in your attic (that was installed before 1990):

  • Limit trips into the attic, stay on floored areas, and try not to use your attic for storage
  • Wear a properly fitted respirator with asbestos rated filters if entering the attic
  • Seal around penetrations in your ceiling such as the attic hatch, cracks, holes, light fixtures, ceiling fans and heating vents
  • If any planned remodeling, construction, or other work will disturb the vermiculite, have it removed by trained, certified, and properly equipped asbestos abatement contractors.
  • If the vermiculite has been disturbed, have an accredited asbestos testing firm perform an air test for asbestos fibers
