Remodeling – Los Gatos – Energy Efficiency – Insulation
This article describes what we thing of as “standard” insulation.
This form of insulation slows down the movement of heat when two materials of different temperatures touch each other.
One of the materials can be air, so this comes into play when you heat your air, and the heat in the air transfers into the sheet rock and out through the ceiling and walls.
To slow down this form of heat transfer, you install an appropriate form of insulation.
The most common forms are bat insuation and blown in insulation.
With this form of insulation, the thicker the insulation, the higher the R value, the slower heat transfers.
The little girl below is lying on a bat made of old blue jeans, which is perfectly safe to use as a pillow, if desired.
This insulation is laid between the framing studs and joists and must fully fill the space for effective insulation.
The next picture shows blown in insulation.
This is commonly used in attics and is literally “blown in” by a large blower machine.
