Imagine coming home after a long day at work, ready for some peace and quiet, but all you can hear are barking dogs and honking cars outside and the TV playing upstairs. There are three great reasons to insulate your interior walls to create a quieter, more comfortable living space!
Although interior insulation is less common than insulating exterior walls and ceilings, adding InSoFast EPS foam continuous insulation to your walls can make a big difference in your comfort and save you money.
Reduce annoying sounds from outdoors (traffic, barking dogs, etc.), as well as sounds that carry from one room to another throughout your home. Insulation helps muffle television noise and helps soften the sound of running water, the whir of a washing machine, the flushing of toilets, and other sounds that can disrupt your otherwise peaceful environment.
About half of your household energy bill goes toward heating and cooling. Interior wall insulation can prevent your HVAC system from working too hard and help lower your energy bills. In winter, insulated walls will hold in the heat and prevent warmth from escaping. In summer, it will reduce the heat coming through the walls and retain the coolness inside the home.
Moisture trapped within the walls of your home, particularly in the bathrooms and basement, can cause all sorts of problems, such as rot, mold and mildew. InSoFast continuous EPS foam insulation features a permeability that ensures moisture does not get trapped in the walls and, with help from shingle-style capillary channels, will “breathe” through to be handled by any standard HVAC system.
The simplest and most cost-effective way of insulating an interior wall is with closed-cell, injection-molded EPS foam panels from InSoFast.
Our UX 2.0 Panel comes in 2-foot x 4-foot interlocking panels that achieve R-8.5 insulation. Each panel is 2-inches thick with a flat surface that exposes the face of the embedded studs. The foam body is a fire-retardant material and serves as a Class III vapor barrier.
Electrical raceways run vertically at 16 inches on center and horizontally at 24 inches on center, making it easy to pull wiring to any location. With tightly interlocking tongue-and-groove edges that don’t require taping, InSoFast panel installation is ideal for do-it-yourselfers.
If you want to insulate your interior walls, InSoFast insulation panels are a cost-effective solution, and most installations can be completed with a utility knife, construction glue and a caulk gun. Call us today to find out more!
