Why Insulate?

In a word, comfort. Proper insulation will ensure that your home is warmer in the winter time and cooler in the summer. Many clients have seen significant cost savings on their energy bills as a result of replacing poorly installed insulation. Insulation can also reduce noise levels in a home by absorbing sound instead of having it reverberate through the house.

Why Not Do it Myself?

Proper insulation is a key component to any healthy and efficient home.

The type of thermal resistance (R/RSI value), vapour or moisture barrier, and product form to use are all important considerations. Only professionals have the knowledge and experience required to determine the solution that best suits your situation.

Improperly installed insulation can lead to heat or cold air losses that negate the benefits of having newly installed insulation in the first place. Even more dangerous can be improperly sealed insulation that leads to moisture and mould within the walls.

Insulation is an investment. You want to make sure that it is done right, that it satisfies your individual needs, and that the benefits will last. The professionals at Paul Cuerrier Insulation Services will make this happen for you.
