GreenHome Specialties is known for our eco-friendly insulation services, perfect for families that want to save money while limiting their exposure to toxins in the home.
Utah residents are all too familiar with the cost of home heating and cooling. Our summers are brutally hot and our winters are freezing cold. Electric bills are high in the summer, and oil and gas bills soar in the winter. It sometimes feels like you can’t win. GreenHome Specialties has some good news for you: home insulation services can make a big difference in your budget.
Especially if you live in an older home in Layton, you may have no insulation. Or if insulation was installed, it may have settled over the years, leaving gaps that let treated air through.
For existing homes, our insulation company uses blow-in insulation made of cellulose fibers or foam injection insulation. When you need more attic insulation, blow-in cellulose is often a good choice. When you need insulation in the walls, foam injection is the way to go. If you have fiberglass batting in your walls now, you don’t even need insulation removal before we install foam injection insulation — the foam fills in all the gaps.
Need insulation in the basement or garage? Spray-foam insulation is what you want. We use a spray gun to install this type of insulation, which expands to fill every nook and cranny. It’s great for sheds, barns and other structures as well.
Some Layton homeowners balk at the idea of foam injection insulation and spray foam insulation because they worry about the chemicals they contain. Our general insulation company uses only eco-friendly insulation products with no VOCs or harmful gases.
Eco-friendly insulation contains recycled materials and only chemicals that are safe to use around humans and pets.
As important as it is to insulate your walls, ceilings, floors, basement, attic and crawl space, it’s also important to make sure your air ducts are not excessively leaky.
When your air ducts are first installed, they are fairly airtight. But over time, the seals begin to wear and your ducts start leaking air into walls, attics and wherever the ductwork runs. This wastes energy and money. Our insulation company recommends air duct sealing services for Layton homes with ductwork that is more than a few years old.
The money you spend on home insulation services is earned back quickly through energy savings. However, you can get money back even faster with rebates from your local power company. Rebates are offered both on insulation services and air duct sealing services.
