Spray Foam. Farmville Insulation receives calls regularly about spray foam. We don't install spray foam, here is our outlook.
Why would you want to put anything in your home that REQUIRES A HAZARDOUS MATERIAL SUIT to inatall?
Who paid for the scientis for studies that said foam insulation is safe? The makers of foam insulation?
Why is the Liability insurance so high for companies to install Foam Insulation?
If Farmville Insulation employees wont use foam insulation in their homes, they won't put it in yours.

QUALITY MATTERS

Conditioning the Crawlspace

Creating a sealed, insulated, and air-conditioned crawlspace solves a host of potential problems, regardless of where you build

BY GLENN COTTRELLDECEMBER 8, 2016





This article first appeared in the December 2016 issue of Pro Builder.

Vented crawlspaces are a good example of an age-old building habit that’s hard to break, but needs to be. Sure, they’ve long been the code-compliant option no matter where you build, but in areas with any noticeable measure of humidity, those vents actually served as gateways for moisture instead of working (albeit passively) to mitigate it. That’s a recipe for mold growth, structural and duct degradation, indoor air quality problems, thermal loss … and the erosion of your profitability and reputation.
Enter the unvented (also called conditioned, sealed, or closed) crawlspace—now an absolute proven best practice for humid climates from Pittsburgh to Atlanta, and a viable option across the country even if your biggest concerns are pest control, frozen pipes, or duct leaks.
Like I-joists and PEX piping, a lack of crawlspace vents cut out of the stem walls may raise eyebrows among less-enlightened homebuyers (and may even surprise your concrete guy), but it’s easy to talk them through it and gain their acceptance.


Why Have a Conditioned Crawlspace?

A conditioned crawlspace is really no different from a properly built dry basement: thermally sealed from the outdoor elements, insulated, and integrated into the home’s HVAC. It also puts your ductwork in conditioned space where it belongs and will perform at its best. (You still need to seal the ducts, though.)
As such, the same air-distribution rules apply in a closed crawlspace as they do to the living spaces above it: a controlled amount of incoming fresh air balanced by a controlled amount of exhaust air, with a measure of humidity control. If you need perimeter drainage, a sump system, and/or radon mitigation, just do whatever’s proper for a basement.
The results, especially in humid climates, include up to 18 percent energy savings and more than 20 percent humidity reduction, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building America research—not to mention mitigating moisture-related problems. In more temperate, dry climates, energy and humidity reductions are less significant, though other benefits emerge.

Has it crossed your mind that maybe you don't have enough insulation in your attic? Like all other building materials, guess what's happening to insulation next month. Yeah the price is going up. Have your attic checked for the correct amount of insulation now. If you have enough that's excellent news for you.
Most customers respond that they are able to tell a difference within a day of having insulation added.

Spring is almost here. But with Spring comes big temperature changes from cold in the mornings to hot in the evenings. If you are running heat at night and air conditioning in the day/evenings when you get home from work, you may want to check the insulation in your attic. Adding more insulation could help with those large temperature changes in you home.

Nine of out 10 homes in the U.S. are under-insulated. A properly insulated home, including attic insulation and crawlspace insulation, is a key aspect of a weatherized home. Fiberglass insulation is the safer option compare to spray foam, fiberglass is made from recycled material using glass and sand.

Cellulose blown Insulation vs Fiberglass blown Insulation.
Cellulose-causes home to have more dust,
Cellulose will disappear over time and have to be blown again every 10 to 15 years. Will start out at 14 inches but over time will disappear until it's even with ceiling joists.
Cellulose has higher R-value for the first few years until it disappears then has less R-value.
Blown in Fiberglass Insulation.
Usually doesn't have to be blown again unless its disturbed by walking in or laying objects on insulation.
Less dust, hold its R-value, will still be near 14 inches for years.
If you decide to add more insulation to your attic ask for Fiberglass insulation instead of Cellulose, it will save heating, cooling cost and and saves money by not having to add more every few years.
