Professionally installed insulation will create a home that's evenly heated, free of hot and cold spots, free of drafts and generally more comfortable. Heating and cooling equipment in a well-insulated home will have a lighter workload and may require less maintenance and repair work. Furthermore, thermal insulation has sound absorbing properties, which can result in a quieter home and, some forms of insulation are resistant to fire and vermin.
The primary function of insulation is to prevent heat migration. This means keeping heat inside your home in winter and keeping it out during the summer. Heat can escape or enter your home via conduction, radiation, convection and air leaks.
Our cellulose insulation is a natural-fibre product produced in Canada by Threm-O-Comfort. It is used in residential, commercial, industrial and institutional applications, both new and retrofit. Applied by a professional using a blower system, cellulose fills cavities and spaces obstructed by things like pipes, air ducts and electrical boxes to create an effective thermal barrier that reduces air leakage.
The main ingredient of cellulose insulation is recycled newsprint which is processed into a wool-like material. With an R-Factor higher than vermiculite, rockwool and fibreglass, cellulose provides a better thermal barrier in the same space. An inch-thick layer of cellulose insulation yields an R-Value of nearly 4 and an application of just 10.3" (26 cm) will meet the Ontario Building Code's minimum insulation requirement of R-40. What's more, the R-value of Cellulose actually increases at lower temperatures, making it more effective when conditions become extreme.
Cellulose is non-corrosive, fire retardant, sound absorbent, vermin resistant, non toxic and non itching. And, since it's made primarily from recycled material, it makes efficient use of valuable resources. Furthermore, Therm-O-Comfort cellulose insulation has less embodied energy than other types of insulation due to a low-energy manufacturing process.
Foam is the future of insulation, providing top performance for a wide range of applications. Foam is the leading-edge insulation system. With high R-Values, excellent air-sealing properties and fewer health concerns than other forms of insulation, foam is the next-generation product for virtually all applications.
Foam insulation undergoes an incredible expansion process when sprayed. Forming to spaces and filling every nook and cranny, foam is perfect for most any application, especially unusual shapes and spaces that contain obstructions such as air ducts, pipes and electrical junctions. Cured foam forms a rigid barrier that will not allow air to filter through and does not sag or settle over time. While providing top-level thermal performance, state-of-the-art foam insulation prevents mold and mildew, provides good sound isolation and eliminates vibration of plumbing and duct work. Available in two varieties, low density and high density, there's a foam for virtually any project.
