Why Insulate Your Home?

HVAC Efficiency

New wall insulation adds protection against the elements and prevents fluctuating indoor temperatures to reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system.

Lifetime Results

Once your retrofit is complete, your new insulation will last 15 – 20 years before any replacement is needed. Kept free of major damage, new insulation can last as long as 80 – 100 years.

Energy Savings

Poorly insulated roofs, walls, gable ends, and foundations allow heat to escape outdoors, forcing your furnace to consume more energy. Installing new insulation with a high R-value can reduce your annual energy costs by as much as 15%.

Comfort All Year Round

Over time, water damage, pest infestations and mould reduce your insulation’s ability to regulate and distribute heat evenly through your home. New insulation stabilizes indoor temperatures, providing comfort in winter or summer.

  • During this visit, the Installation Service Professional will inspect your attic to determine your complete insulation needs and answer any questions you might have.
  • You will be given an estimate at the end of the visit.
  • To ensure your satisfaction with the installation, it’s encouraged that your family’s key decision makers take a moment prior to your in-home appointment to think about how long you plan to stay in your home, review your monthly energy costs, consider the temperature consistency in the house and make note of your budget as well as any questions you may have about energy efficiency.
  • To begin the project, an authorized Home Depot Service Professional will call to arrange an installation date at a time that’s convenient for you. (Take note: Weather may impact the scheduled date and length of the project.) You will be informed of any prior preparations you may need to make.

Attic Insulation

Crawlspace and Attic Insulation Installation

  • Attics and crawlspaces often become troublesome and neglected areas of the home.
  • Properly insulated, however, heat loss caused by drafts can be reduced significantly, allowing for heat to be evenly reflected and distributed to other areas of your home. 
  • Spray foam or blown-in insulation installed professionally by our authorized contractors will ensure your attic or crawlspace is sealed to stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer – reducing wear and tear on your furnace or HVAC.
Roof Insulation

Roof Insulation Installation

  • Inadequate roof insulation allows heat to escape from your home, resulting in higher energy costs.
  • Glass wool, roof insulation boards, and closed cell foam with an R-6 value or above, are budget-friendly solutions that can improve yearly energy savings by as much as 15%.
  • During your free consultation, we identify drafts and trouble spots where heat loss occurs in your roofing to determine the most energy efficient insulation for your home.
Basement Insulation

Basement Insulation Installation

  • The basement can be notoriously cold and damp in summer and winter.
  • Moisture caused by water damage, mould, mildew, as well as pest infestations can wear out the insulation in your foundation walls over time.
  • Our insulation contractors are experienced and certified at installing spray foam insulation (closed-cell polyurethane), fiberglass insulation, and foam board insulation which are safe and moisture-resistant, ideal for damp areas of the home.
Attic Insulation

Wall Insulation Installation 

  • Exterior walls exposed to the elements can be a source of heat loss during colder months, while interior wall insulation can improve comfort and energy efficiency.
  • Foam board insulation is a common solution for exterior walls; in particular, vacuum insulated panels with a high R-value (R-45).
  • Our authorized insulation installers can recommend the best type of wall insulation for exterior and interior walls.

Proper Insulation can Save you Money

Many Canadian homes lack adequate wall insulation and roof insulation, which can end up costing homeowners more money on their energy bills in order to keep their houses warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Adding proper home insulation can save you money and help you use your energy more efficiently. There are many insulation types to choose from, including spray foam insulation, fibreglass insulation, cellulose insulation and more.

Properly insulating your basement can keep it comfortable all year long. Your basement can be notorious as the coldest room in your house. However, you can stop that by properly insulating it against all the weather fluctuation outside. When installing batting on an inside exterior wall, it’s important not to compress it in past the end of the studs. Your insulation should fit snug all around and reach to the top and bottom of the space. When installing batting around wiring or plumbing, split the batting where you can, running one side behind and one side in front to ensure insulation around all areas. You can also stuff small batts around areas like plumbing, vents, windows and doors.

Attic insulation can also be a trouble area, one that can be remedied using blown-in insulation. Once your attic is properly insulated, you’ll be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer without using extra energy.
