There are many different types of insulation used in construction, and each has its own applications and advantages.
Insulation is a vital material that is used in the construction process of all types of structures. After the walls have been framed but before the drywall goes up, insulation is installed in the spaces between the ceiling joists and framed sections. The materials used to create exterior walls often leave behind cracks and gaps, which can allow heated and cooled air to escape. Outdoor air can also move through these small openings, resulting in an inconsistent indoor temperature. Insulation helps to prevent air loss, which boosts the energy efficiency and comfort level of the space. It’s also useful in dampening the sound, keeping the inside of a structure quieter.
The installation process for insulation has changed over the years, and structures built more than several decades ago may not have enough insulation to keep up with today’s needs.
