In our previous blog posts, we’ve discussed some frequently asked questions about insulation. We’re not done yet! Here are another few commonly asked questions from insulate.org:
- Can insulation help reduce unwanted sound? Yes. Insulation is an efficient way to reduce unwanted sound, and it is commonly used to provide a more comfortable and quieter interior environment. Insulation effectively reduces noise transmission through floors and through interior and exterior walls. A professional insulation contractor can help you select the proper insulation for your needs. Visit Owens Corning’s Quiet Zone for information on controlling noise.
- Where can I get more information about insulation? General: U.S. Department of Energy and Energy Star, a service of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; Fiberglass, Rock and Slag Wool Insulation: North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA); Cellulose Insulation: Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association (CIMA); Spray Foam: Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA)
- For a “green home,” do I really need a high-efficiency furnace, high-efficiency appliances, and new windows? It’s better to go low-tech according to Lane Burt, a building-energy expert with the Natural Resource Defense Council. Hire a pro to find all the leaks in your home and plug them up. This should cost much less than a new heating system, so you won’t be heating the outside of your home. The best energy efficiency measure you can take is insulating and air sealing your home, according to McKinsey & Company. A March 2014 report by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy looked at efficiency programs in 20 states from 2009 to 2012 and found an average cost of only 2.8 cents per kilowatt-hour – about one-half to one-third the cost of alternative new electricity resource options.
