Your home is the single most important purchase you will make in your lifetime. To ensure your home provides years of comfort and is inexpensive to heat and cool, you need an efficient, cost effective, and versatile insulation.
Therm-O-Comfort’s insulation fits the bill. Available in spray and loose-fill, it can be used to insulate every part of your home including attics, walls, floors, and cathedral ceilings. Whether you’re retrofitting your house with additional insulation or insulating a new home, our products deliver the performance you need.
Attics are the quickest and easiest way to save energy and improve the comfort of your home. Our products can be blown over most pre-existing insulation such as fibreglass or rock wool loose-fill or batt insulation. Our products will provide the greatest protection against ice damming and air infiltration.
Whether the walls are sprayed or blown, our products will tighten up the home and prevent moisture-related problems. Our loose-fill product can be easily installed by contractors and most individuals skilled in home renovation. Blown walls provide the greatest protection against air infiltration, installed in excess of 2.5 times the density of a standard fibreglass batt.
Basements are often exposed to higher humidity levels and sporadic wetting and flooding. Not only do our products provide superior thermal performance, they also protect the structure against moisture associated problems such as mould and mildew. Our products have the unique ability to slowly absorb and release moisture over time, thus preventing condensation problems and will keep your basement from having that musty or mouldy smell.
Floors over unheated living spaces require insulation. In this construction method, air can infiltrate a whole host of areas, including the joist perimeter. Often builders have struggled with the common problem of cold floor syndrome. Batt products afford little protection from air infiltration. Dense packing cellulose is the easiest and quickest alternative to batt insulation and is a fraction of the cost of sprayed foam products.
The area around the perimeter of a floor is a common source of air leakage. Preformed batts require cutting and often don’t completely fill the space or form a tight seal. Blowing or spraying these areas is a quick, easy, and effective solution.
Sloped or Cathedral Ceilings
Whether your home is built with open sloped or enclosed cathedral ceilings, our product is an ideal solution. When ceilings have a pitch (slope) less than 4.5 in 12, loose-fill is the most cost effective solution. For slopes over 4.5 in 12, the ceiling can either be sprayed on open surfaces (scissors truss ceilings) or dense packed in enclosed cavities, provided the proper air flow vents are applied from the soffit to the ridge vent and the material compressed to its non-settling state.
