Insulation For Newly Built Homes

With the concrete block and wood framing in place, the basic skeletal structure of your custom home is complete. But before we go any further we need to insulate your custom home. Insulation weatherizes your home keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It also increases the efficiency of your central air and heating system, so it doesn’t have to work as hard in maintaining a comfortable temperature regardless of how hot or cold it is outside. A well-insulated home reduces your energy costs and keeps your home comfortable all year long.

Optimizing Energy Efficiency

Our experienced team calculates the required amount of insulation based on several factors including the facing direction of the home, number of windows, square footage and the HVAC units that are installed to optimize the energy efficiency.

Did you ever wonder why the A/C fan and condenser unit is installed in a certain place outside your home? Well, our team uses the insulation data to design the duct systems and the placement of the air exchangers and a/c units. The heat pumps that are built into most A/C units today are more than capable of handling those few short weeks of winter that we get here in the Orland, Minneola, and Wedgefield area every year.

SEER Ratings

Air conditioning manufacturers are required to indicate the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) for each unit. The SEER rating was designed to give consumers a barometer for determining the energy efficiency of a/c units.

The higher the SEER, the more energy efficient the unit. For example, an air conditioning unit with a SEER 18 rating is much more efficient than one with a SEER 15, for example. Air conditioning units with higher SEER ratings use less energy and have lower operating costs.

Attic Insulation For New Home

While energy efficiency is extremely important for homeowners, insulating your attic also helps with moisture control, soundproofing and prolonging the lifespan of your roof. Typically, our professional team will  insulate your attic spaces using foam, a type of insulation that will ensure optimal comfort, while enhancing the longevity of your home.

With higher R-values of the insulation of the exterior walls on the second-floor of wood frame construction, we use fiberglass batt or foam insulation depending on the customers budget and preference. Interior walls in Florida typically do not require any insulation, but if you would like us to add a bit of soundproofing to a specific room, like the master bedroom, for instance, RGS can add sound wall insulation for that room.
