Batt Insulation Service

Batt Insulation Install

At TLS Insulation, we offer professional batt insulation services for both residential and light commercial applications. Our high-quality batt insulation is a cost-effective solution that provides excellent thermal performance and helps to reduce energy costs. We use only the best materials from leading manufacturers, ensuring that your insulation will last for years to come.

What is Batt Insulation?

Batt insulation service involves the installation of pre-cut sections of insulation, which are commonly referred to as “batts” or “rolls.” These batts are typically made from fiberglass, mineral wool (rock or slag wool), or cotton (denim) and are designed to fit into the cavities between wall studs, floor joists, and ceiling rafters.

The service can be applied to both new construction and existing homes during renovations, particularly when the walls are open.

This is the preferred option for many of our customers who want specific areas insulated instead of blown insulation, which is used almost exclusively for attics.

Step 1: Preparation and Assessment

Thorough Inspection: Before we begin any installation, our expert team conducts a detailed inspection of your home’s existing insulation and structure. We identify any areas that need repair or preparation, such as moisture damage, mold, or existing insulation that needs removal. Our goal is to ensure a clean and suitable foundation for new insulation.

Custom Measurements and Cutting: We meticulously measure the spaces within your walls, floors, and ceilings to guarantee a precise fit for the insulation. Each batt is custom-cut to slightly larger than the space to ensure a snug fit without compressing the material, which is crucial for maintaining the insulation’s effectiveness.

Step 2: Expert Installation

Precision Placement: Our skilled technicians carefully install the batts between the framing of your walls, floors, and ceilings. We ensure each piece fits perfectly, filling the cavity completely to avoid any gaps. If the batts include a vapor barrier, we position it facing the interior of the home to prevent moisture intrusion—a must in Florida’s humid climate.

Secure and Seal: We secure the insulation with staples only when necessary, particularly for faced batts, to keep the vapor barrier intact. Our team takes extra care to ensure the insulation aligns flush with your framing, providing a continuous thermal barrier that effectively prevents energy leaks.

Step 3: Finishing Touches and Quality Assurance

Comprehensive Inspection and Adjustment: After installation, we conduct a thorough inspection to check for any gaps or areas that may need additional coverage. Our team is meticulous about filling these spots to ensure complete and effective insulation coverage.

Professional Finish and Cleanup: We finalize the installation by preparing the area for any subsequent interior finishes, such as drywall, ensuring that the insulation is well protected and your home is left clean and tidy. Our cleanup process includes removing all installation debris and tools, leaving your space as neat as when we arrived.

Final Walk-Through: Our job isn’t done until you are completely satisfied. We provide a final walk-through with you to ensure that all work meets our high standards and your expectations. This step is crucial for us to answer any questions you might have and to demonstrate the quality of our work.

Batt Insulation Questions:

In Florida, due to the warm climate, the recommended R-values are typically lower than in colder regions. For attics, an R-value between R-30 and R-49 is generally sufficient, while for exterior walls, an R-13 to R-15 is usually recommended. These values ensure optimal energy efficiency without unnecessary cost.

The time it takes to install batt insulation can vary depending on the size of the home and the areas being insulated. However, for a typical home, installing batt insulation in an attic or a single room can often be completed in one day. Larger projects or homes with difficult access to walls or attics may take longer.

Yes, batt insulation can be installed over existing insulation, provided the old insulation is dry and in good condition. It’s important to ensure that the existing insulation hasn’t settled or compacted significantly, as this can reduce its effectiveness. Adding new batt insulation on top can help to increase the overall R-value and improve energy efficiency.

Fiberglass and mineral wool batt insulations are naturally fire-resistant due to their non-combustible properties. They can help to slow the spread of fire within a home. However, it’s important to ensure that any facing on the batts, such as kraft paper, is installed correctly (facing towards the interior of the building) to maintain fire safety standards.

When properly installed, batt insulation can improve indoor air quality by reducing the infiltration of outdoor pollutants and allergens. However, it’s crucial that the insulation does not contain any harmful chemicals or irritants. Most modern fiberglass and mineral wool batt insulations are manufactured to be low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and are safe for indoor use. 

Yes – Florida offers rebates or tax credits for installing energy-efficient insulation. Please see our page here for the full details.

Homeowners should clear the area where insulation is to be installed. This includes moving furniture, covering items to protect them from dust, and providing clear access to walls or attics. Additionally, addressing any moisture issues or repairing roof leaks beforehand is crucial to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the new insulation.
