Wall Insulation
WALL INSULATION
If your home is lacking wall insulation, don't worry, there is hope. An effective amount of insulation can be installed into the walls that will help improve the building's performance by enhancing the thermal boundary. Densely packed insulation gives the wall Higher R-values and lower air permeability. It's an simple solution to this huge problem.

Affordable Comfort home wall insulation can be done by using a drill and plug dense pack method. First we need to confirm that the walls are insulated. We drill a ½” hole in an inconspicuous place, such as a closet or behind a cabinet. We check all 4 walls. Once we have determined there is a wall cavity and it is indeed not insulated, we are set for the next step, which is to determine the best way to install it. There are a few different methods.
The One-Hole Method is where one hole is drilled approximately 2/3 the wall up the wall, and the insulation is pumped in.

The Two-Hole Method insures better coverage because 2- 1/8” holes are drilled at 1/3 and ¾ the height of the wall. So if you have an 8’ wall to insulate, we would drill at approximately 2’-3’ and at 6’-7’. This allows for thorough coverage throughout the wall cavity.

Dense Pack Method is where one larger 2 ¾” hole is drilled at approximately 1’-2’ from the bottom of the wall. The technician will then install a hose into that hole and slide it up to the top of the cavity to begin installing the insulation. As the wall cavity fills, the technician will pull the hose out of the hole a little at a time until the entire cavity is densely packed to a total of 2 ½ lbs per cubic feet. Now that your walls are insulated, a plug is installed into these holes and the wall is ready for finish work or siding re-installation.

Drilling through many building materials and installing insulation can be messy, so the preferred method is exterior wall insulation. Many times the siding can be removed to allow access to the sheathing material. Several holes will need to be drilled between each stud to access all wall cavities for thorough coverage. You can insulate from the interior if it is not possible to go through siding or other building materials on the outside of your home.

Using cellulose to insulate the walls of your home will not only give you a better R-Value, it will also seal up a lot up cracks and voids and stop infiltrations, offering a great solution to problems like drafty rooms and pipes that freeze.

Wall insulation is a big job, but the return on investment makes the work worthwhile.
