During hot months of the year the temperature in the attic may rise close to 130⁰ F. The attic space becomes a heat reservoir and the heat flows from the ceiling into the home’s living space. If your home has inefficient attic insulation the electric bill will be extremely expensive.
Radiant barriers are very effective at reducing the South Florida heat that we all know too well. The barriers are made up of a material that helps in the reflection of heat instead of absorption. If a home’s duct system flows through the attic, the radiant barriers will help to prevent heat from transferring into the air ducts. With radiant barriers installed, the cost of keeping your home air conditioned can be reduced because there will be less heat radiating from the roof to other areas.
Home Air Sealing
Air leakage or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. The South Florida heat entering your home can cause increased energy bills. Proper air sealing your home can significantly correct this unwanted intrusion, with benefits such as: reduced heating and cooling costs, improved building durability, and healthier indoor air quality.
By far the easiest and most economical method for controlling noise is to install insulation in attics and wall cavities. Fiber glass insulation and cellulose are excellent sound absorbers and energy savers. When installed in the walls and ceilings, they can reduce the transmission of sound from other rooms or from the outside. There are other options for noise control such as sound boards, spray foam insulation, wall and ceiling clips, ceiling hangers, loaded mass barriers, etc.
Home & Commercial Insulation Services In South Florida
Human society is in transition from the present fossil-fuel-energy era to the future renewable-energy era. This transition is guided for two interrelated concepts: Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation. The first one is associated with science and technology; the second one is associated with our culture values and change in behavior. Our company is deeply involved in this transition by aiding South Florida home owners and businesses to choose the best energy savings measures.
The best tool to deal with the energy improvements of our houses, schools, hospitals, etc. is to apply basic science to areas like energy consumption, comfort, safety, interior air quality, moisture dynamic; this is called “building science”. Under this approach, the house with all its physical components including its occupants is viewed as a system. With this concept, our qualified energy expert can inspect your home and measure its energy characteristics, such as: air infiltration, duct leakages, A/C efficiency, and insulation levels. The energy performance evaluation will allow you to choose a cost effective, safe and more environmentally friendly solution for your home in South Florida.
We invite you to walk together toward the renewable energy era.
One of the most relevant components in a home is thermal Insulation. Nowadays a home is designed under building science guidance and insulation is so fundamental that is a mandatory component in all building construction codes. A well-insulated residence will reduce heating and cooling costs, allowing the air conditioning system an efficient temperature and moisture control. Most of the insulation materials will reduce sound transmission and when installed by a qualified company as A Best Insulation Inc., you will have others benefits like reduction in air infiltration and improvement in interior air quality. A good Residential Insulation is associated with the pleasure to be at home, you and your loved ones will enjoy a healthy and comfortable house.
When we go to a wholesale supermarket, we can walk comfortably around racks. In the food section the meat and vegetables look fresh and attractive. Comfort and food preservation is a complex engineering challenge and insulation is part of the solution. If we look-up to the ceiling we will see a white material that covers the underside of the roof deck, that’s the white vinyl that covers the insulation. Insulation is what prevents a massive amount of heat flowing into the air conditioned space. In factories, schools or in any commercial building Thermal Insulation will play a major role in a variety of solution such as temperature and humidity control, reducing temperature on pipes and boilers. On top of those benefits, Commercial Insulation will reduces greenhouse gas emission, protecting the environment and saving our energy resources.
The estimator was right on time and thoroughly explained what needed to be done and various options. We contracted to have the old insulation removed, the crawl space cleaned and new insulation installed. The workers were also right on time both days. They were very courteous and professional. They were careful not to make a mess during the work and picked up all debris when leaving. Everything was done to our satisfaction. We are extremely pleased with this company.
