Your walls (and wall insulation) do more than protect you from the elements--they keep you comfortable. Whether you are building a new home or retrofitting an existing house in Columbus, Upper Arlington, Dublin, Powell, Worthington or Westerville, you can rely on Greene Solutions to improve your wall insulation.
The Importance of Wall Insulation
Wall insulation acts as a thermal barrier, slowing the transfer of heat from the inside to the outside in the winter, and from the outside to the inside during the summer. An air barrier and a vapor barrier help to reduce air and moisture flow into (and out of) the building as well. These three elements (thermal, air, and vapor barrier) make an energy efficient wall.
Insulating the walls of new houses is different from retrofitting an existing home. In a new home, we can work with your builder to ensure a quality installation of the proper amount of insulation, so that your home meets the requirements of the energy code and beyond.
In an existing house, we need to figure out what’s already there, and how the house is performing before we can confidently tell you how to improve your home comfort levels and reduce your energy costs. Our team usually works with Owens Corning insulation, and will work with you to come up with the best solution for your home.
Get Started With an Energy Audit
It’s not enough to add insulation. Walls also need to be protected from moisture and air flows in and out of the building. Greene Solutions can investigate and determine the right solution for your house and your budget with our energy audit. As energy advisors, Greene Solutions understands the science behind your walls, and will recommend the best insulation and air sealing package for your house!
