Frequently Asked Insulation Questions and Topics

Fiberglass VS Cellulose

R Values Insulation primarily offers blown fiberglass insulation. We do NOT install cellulose based insulation. Cellulose is an organic based (wood or paper) insulation that has been used for many years, and still utilized commonly in northern climates. While offering a higher Initial R-Value per inch than fiberglass, Cellulose commonly settles after install which reduces R-value. Cellulose is often chemically treated with Borate which imparts Flame retardancy.

Fiberglass Blowing Wool or Blown Fiberglass Insulation is the ideal insulation solution in Southwest Florida. No settle, thermal blanket that offers complete coverage of living areas at affordable pricing and flexible installation. 98%-99% Biosoluble glass mineral wool passes ATSM testing to ensure non combustibility, will not corrode, and does inhibit mold or fungi growth. If there is a better material solution for improving residential insulation economically we would offer it.

Fiberglass vs Pest Insulation

R Values Insulation does not offer Insulation designed to eliminate pests. As a licensed insulation contractor, our goal is to improve your homes thermal efficiency. If we notice signs of "Attic Intruders" such as rats, mice, birds, or raccoons we will alert the homeowner immediately. In some scenarios, complete removal of attic insulation is required. We are equipped to remove insulation via industrial vacuuming and manual removal, including disposal. This allows other trades such as Licensed Pest Control companies, or General Contractors to treat the attic area with chemicals and ensure all pest access points are addressed to prevent further intruders. Sometimes this includes "Fogging" the attic to sanitize it. After the attic is sealed and ready for Re-Insulating, our team returns to add R-30 Blown Fiberglass to the effected attic area.

Other Major Energy Problems?

Air Sealing could be your culprit! In some situations recessed lighting and other ceiling penetrations are not properly seamed to the drywall or ceiling. Varying on the temperatures, the expanding hot air from the attic can push hot attic air into living space or alternatively the attic can draft the cold air in, causing the AC system to struggle.

R-Value Meaning "R-Value" in INsulation

R-Value is used to describe a materials resistance to thermal heat flow. The R-Value for a insulation product is typically determined by thickness or density of material per inch. For Blown Insulation, for more inches installed the higher the r-value.

Here is Southwest Florida, Zone 2, R-30 or R-38 attic insulation is recommended by the Department of Energy. For Existing homes, we can add 8" or more to bring your homes r-value up to efficient levels.
