Insulation Removal and Installation

If you’re having trouble keeping your home comfortable year-round, poor insulation may be to blame. While your home may have been built with durable insulation, it may have sustained damage or degraded over time. Beyond causing drafts and chilly indoor temperatures in the cooler months, insulation that isn’t working as it should causes your home’s HVAC system to work even harder, which can cause your energy bills to skyrocket.

Dry Core Restoration provides unbeatable insulation removal and installation

Dry Core Restoration provides unbeatable insulation removal and installation services to homeowners in greater Phoenix. We’ll help you keep your home comfortable!

The insulation removal and installation process depends on your home and its specific needs, and your technician will be happy to discuss your options with you. To start, we’ll check for damaged or degraded insulation and remove it. Over time, your insulation may have become compacted, wet, or moldy, so if there’s any water damage in the surrounding area that needs to be addressed, we will let you know. Once the old insulation is removed, we will replace it with brand-new blown-in insulation and add additional insulation as needed. It’s as simple as that!

Insulation isn’t often something the average homeowner has much experience with, so we’re sure you’ve got a lot of questions! Here are a few of the questions we hear most often from customers.

What are the benefits of putting insulation in my attic?

Most of your home’s heat is lost through the attic, so making sure that it’s properly insulated will make it easier to keep the heat contained inside. Since it’ll be easier to regulate the indoor temperature, this can also significantly decrease your energy bills.

What are my insulation options and which should I choose?

There are two main types of insulation:

  • Loose fill insulation is packed into bags and then blown into place. Loose fill is ideal for attics in which the joists are irregularly or tightly spaced, but requires specialized equipment to install. We have this equipment on hand, so we’ll happily provide loose fill insulation.
  • Batting is rolled insulation, typically 16 to 24 inches wide, that fits between the joists. One side may have a foil or paper backing that acts as a vapor barrier, and multiple layers can be installed. Though batting may be difficult to place in between tight spaces, it can be cut to shape and doesn’t require special equipment. We do not offer this type of insulation, but it can be purchased at most hardware stores.

What is insulation made of?

Insulation can be made of fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, and we’ll be happy to talk them over with you.

  • Fiberglass is the most common option, since it’s both effective and cost-effective, but it doesn’t block air as well as other materials. It also needs to be installed in thicker layers, and it can irritate the skin. While fiberglass can last 80 to 100 years, it may start falling apart after 15 to 20 years, so it may be beneficial to have your insulation inspected every so often if you have an older home.
  • Cellulose is cheaper and eco-friendly, and it blocks air more effectively than fiberglass. On the other hand, it’s more prone to becoming moldy when moisture is present, and it isn’t widely produced. It also degrades faster: while it generally lasts only 20-30 years, it can begin degrading after 15.
  • Mineral wool insulation is fairly durable and increasingly popular. Though it’s more expensive than fiberglass, it’s also more efficient so you don’t have to use as much. Mineral wool is also hydrophobic and fire resistant.

What does R-value mean?

R-value measures how well the insulation blocks the flow of heat. Higher values mean better resistance to heat flow. Common R-value recommendations for attics are R30 for warm climates, R38 for more temperate climates, and R49 where it can get cold. ENERGY STAR® has a map showing the recommended insulation levels for each part of the country – feel free to check out what it has to say about your neck of the woods.

Could my home have asbestos insulation?

Homes built before 1990 may contain asbestos insulation, which requires professional removal. Asbestos insulation looks grainy and loose, with shiny flecks. If you notice that you have asbestos insulation, it’s best to get it replaced as soon as possible. We’ll help you determine the safest way to go about it.
