What is Thermal Insulation?

Thermal insulation is the process endorsed to prevent heat transfer between the inside and outside of your home. The most common types of materials used for thermal insulation include fiberglass, cellulose, and mineral wool. Another type applied by many contractors is a rigid panel made of expanded polystyrene. These insulation materials sit on the walls of your home or crawl space and act as barriers between outdoor and indoor temperatures. They trap the heat inside and block external conditions from affecting your indoors. By doing so, these barriers manage temperature levels inside your home and reduce your dependence on your HVAC system to harmonize temperatures.
