Insulation Installation

Greenshield offers professional insulation installation to homes and businesses in the San Jose, CA region.

WHY DO HOUSES AND BUILDINGS NEED INSULATION?

Heat transmission is the average home's leading cause of winter heat loss. Most single-family homes lose three to six times as much  heat  through transmission as through air leakage. Insulation slows heat transmission through the building's floor, walls, and ceiling or roof. Greenshield, working within the San Jose region, provides professional insulation installation to reduce these wasteful effects.

Insulation performs the following thermal functions:

  • Conserves energy by slowing heat transmission;
  • Enhances comfort by reducing temperature variations within the conditioned space;
  • Reduces the size of heating and cooling equipment needed by a building in direct proportion to R-value;
  • Prevents wintertime condensation by preventing low interior surface temperatures.

Insulation may also offer the following benefits:

  • Adds structural strength;
  • Reduces noise and vibration;
  • Impedes air leakage and water vapor transmission;
  • Improves the building's fire resistance.
