Thermal insulation refers to the materials, methods or processes used to reduce heat transfer. It helps maintain the temperature by preventing heat from escaping or entering an area, keeping an enclosed area, such as a building, warm or the inside of an area cold.
When a space is well insulated, it is more energy and cost efficient by preserving a stable, consistent temperature.
Additionally, most forms of acoustic insulations work as a buffer to absorb noise and vibrations coming from outside of the room.
Unlike heating and cooling equipment, insulation does not require maintenance, upkeep or adjustments regardless of the outside conditions.
Bold recommends removing old insulation is when it has fire damage, water damage or is heavily infested with rodents. In the rare instances where insulation removal is required, we hand-remove the fiberglass rolls, pack them in bags and carefully remove it from your attic. If the attic has blown material, we use a large insulation removal vacuum to remove all the material. The vacuum is usually outside the house and this creates a “negative pressure” in the attic such that air is being drawn up into the attic, this ensures a clean job where little or no debris enters the home
