As we recently mentioned in a blog post series with insulation tips, now is the perfect time to add that extra barrier of efficiency to your home with additional (or new) insulation. One of the most important areas in the home to pay close attention to when it comes to ensuring proper insulation is the basement or crawl space. At BelRed, we understand the importance of proper basement insulation (among other areas of the home) and are equipped to offer the best service and attention to detail you can get.
BelRed partners with the best insulation manufacturers and installers to provide our customers with green solutions that save you money and improve your comfort. We use environmentally friendly insulation free of petroleum-based chemicals commonly used in other insulation products. Based on renewable bio-based materials, batt insulation from BelRed does not contain phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colors used to make traditional fiberglass insulation. This insulation combines sand, one of the world’s most abundant and renewable resources, and post-consumer recycled bottle glass to create the next generation of sustainable insulation. We take energy savings seriously at BelRed and always pay special attention to creating the most eco-friendly solutions to home performance.
We also work directly with local utility companies to make sure you receive all available utility rebates when you make the decision to insulate. We understand that insulating your home can be a large investment and want to work with all of our customers to educate them on all available money saving opportunities.
We have an extremely thorough process when it comes to insulation installation in your basement or crawl space, as these areas certainly need detail and attention paid to help maximize the results. Our process includes the following steps:
- Cleaning up and removing existing insulation
- Sealing all air leakages affecting the interior of your home
- Installing insulation into floor cavity
- Installing 6 mil black plastic to crawl space floor to block moisture released from the earth
- Wrapping hot and cold water pipes with insulation
We will also go the extra mile and help coordinate with pest control and exclusion services if we find an issue in your basement.
If your basement is in need of better, healthier insulation, give us a call today. We’d be more than happy to help.Tags: basement insulation, crawl space insulation, efficiency, Home energy, insulation, insulation installation
