Insulation Installation

Installing new insulation is a pretty involved process, as there is often quite a lot of area to cover. Every exterior wall needs to be insulated, as well as the roof. Heat will always move from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. This means that during the summer, the heat from the outside environment will always move into residential or commercial buildings until the temperature is equalized.

The opposite is true in winter, with heat leaving the buildings until the inside is just as cold as the outside. As people generally don’t want to occupy warm buildings in summer and cold ones in winter, something must be done to hinder the transmission of heat between the building and the surrounding environment. That’s where insulation comes in.

Heat doesn’t just move through openings in the building, like doors and windows. It moves directly through the walls, as well. That means that every single wall needs to be insulated in order to effectively isolate the building from the outside climate. The ducts in your home are another area that can allow unwanted heat transfer, so it is important to make sure that they are properly insulated as well.

We offer duct insulation in addition to our other services. Improper installation can drastically lower the effectiveness of the insulation, so it is important that you choose a company you trust to take care of it for you. If you need insulation installed, call M & S Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.. We’ll make sure that your needs are taken care of.

Insulation Replacement

Insulation is not invulnerable once installed. There are plenty of things that can contribute to its loss of effectiveness over the years. For one, excessive moisture will almost certainly cause certain types of insulation to rot. For this reason, it’s a good idea to have your insulation checked after a long period of rain or snow. Plumbing issues, like pinhole leaks, can also cause excessive water damage to the insulation in your walls.

Animal activity is another factor that accounts for quite a bit of insulation damage countrywide. Many kinds of birds and mammals like to use insulation for their nests. If they happen to find some way into the walls of your building, they can gut the insulation inside in short order. If you happen to notice animal activity in your building, it might be a good idea to check the walls for insulation damage.

If you do end up needing insulation replaced, just give us a call to set up an appointment. We’ll make sure that your residential or commercial insulation is restored to its proper state, so that you can keep enjoying your heating and air conditioning systems. Contact us for more information.
