Comparing Insulation Types - Fiberglass, Spray Foam, Rigid Board, Cellulose, Reflective and Radiant Barriers

Comparing Reflective Insulation to Fiberglass, Spray Foam, Rigid Board and Cellulose: In addition to providing thermal protection (R value) to reduce your winter heating costs, reflective insulation also cools your home in the summer; thereby, reducing your summer utility costs. While mass insulation (fiberglass, spray foam...

Bubble Insulation Compared to Prodex and radiant barriers: Low cost alternative to Prodex Total Reflective Insulation. It is composed of either one (single bubble) or two (double bubble) layers of air bubbles sandwiched between two metalized surfaces. Once either is punctured, it collapses...

Fiberglass Insulation - 9 Reasons To Avoid: Warnings on the insulation rolls advise you to completely protect yourself from coming into any contact with fiberglass. Batts do not seal wall and ceiling cavities tightly. Fiberglass insulation R-value is reduced by to thermal bridging, pinching and moisture. Moisture build-up between the fiberglass and the building exterior cannot evaporate, therefore causing mold, mildew and decay...

Comparing Radiant Barriers: It takes more than foil to make a good radiant barrier...

Cellulose Insulation- 6 Reasons To Avoid: Moisture absorption in cellulose insulation can make it heavier, causing it to become compacted and lose its insulation value. It is prone to create too much dust that is blown into the house through inadequate seals around fixtures or minute holes... This can be a real health problem...

Spray Foam Insulation - Why It's Not The Best Option: A chemical insulation agent, stored in canister and sprayed onto walls, holes and cracks with a special application hose to provide a thermal barrier. Most, such as Polyurethane and Isocyanine insulation, contain hazardous chemicals such as benzene and toluene. These are a potential hazard and environmental concern during ray material production, transport, manufacture and installation. It won't prevent radiant heat transfer (the primary source of heat-flow in and out of your structure)...

Rigid Board Insulation - Alternative: The R-value diminishes slightly over time especially if the foil face is removed. It will absorb moisture if wet and degrade in sunlight...
