A well insulated New Orleans home means the air conditioning works less often. The air inside your home does not get as dried out because it does not get processed and cycled as much through your HVAC system.
Insulation installed by Fontenot Insulation reduces outside sound from entering the home. Homeowners near airports, schools, or busy roadways often report dramatically less sound infiltrating and most people describe the home as having a more solid feeling to it.
The non-flammable nature of cellulose insulation offers a degree of fire protection to the home. The spread of fire is slowed down by 57% because the fire has to burn around it and cannot burn through it. Tests show that a well insulated home remained structurally intact and stood significantly longer then a non-insulated or fiberglass insulated home.
There is a reduction in condensation on ceilings and walls throughout the home.
Louisiana homeowners know about the unique climate we have and how our native critters just love to get in our homes. With that being said, did you know that Cellulose Insulation is treated with borate, the material is resistant to insect, termite, rodent, vermin, mold, mildew and fungus!
