Best Internal Wall Insulation
Essential Home and Garden identifies the 5 best types of insulation for internal walls.
- Rigid Insulation
- Foam Insulation (specially designed insulating foam sprays and sealants).
- Blow-in Insulation (cellulose fiber).
- Foil Insulation
- Stone Wool Insulation
Rigid Board Insulation
Insulate walls from within with rigid boards that do not rot. For example, polystyrene boards and rafter vents. They are best for small spaces. Both light and strong, they provide structural strength. Plus, they provide acoustic insulation, in addition to thermal insulation.
Blown-in insulation is a popular option.Because it offers thermal performance at a lower price point. It comes in either fiberglass or cellulose. Blown-in insulation creates a thorough blanket of foam that covers surfaces in need of insulation. Finally, it ensures longevity for your roof when used in the attic.
Fiberglass is a type of blown-in insulation that is quite common. However, fiberglass particles are released into the air and inhaled. So, proper safety precautions are necessary. It’s best to rely on a professional if you choose blown-in fiberglass.
Foil insulation is lesser known but growing in popularity. It causes heat to reflect back to it’s source. So, it’s more effective in actually heating your home, rather than slowing down the escape of heat.
Stone Wool Insulation
Stone wool insulation is another great option when you need to both retain heat and get great acoustic insulation. It is not combustible. And it will not easily catch fire.
Is it Time to Replace Your Insulation?
Most types of insulation last for a long period of time. Between 80 to 100 years. But that’s only if the insulation has been in perfect condition over its lifespan.
