See What Our Clients Have To Say!
We wanted to convert our attic into an office for my husband now that our kids need their own rooms. We had these guys come in and install spray foam insulation into the attic.
Whoever I talked to on the phone was really helpful when it came to figuring out what we actually needed since I didn’t know anything about insulation.
They were easy to schedule and got the work done in a day. The attic feels better so I’m happy.
I do basic renovation work around Aurora. I do a lot of smaller insulation work on my own but these are my go-to guys for any kind of spray foam insulation. Used them a few times now and I’m always happy with the work.
We’ve got a multi level house so there a pretty large space between the floor of the second story and the ground level. It’s an old house that’s also had several add ons over the years. Not all of which were done with a good approach to insulation. We had the crew from Aurora Hills Insulation come out and review what was done after we kept seeing a spike in our energy bills.
They confirmed what we already expected which was that we didn’t have much for insulation after a series of add ons. They gave a good quote, competitive quote and took care of business quickly. Well worth it and we’re happy we found these guys.
How Insulation Helps Keep You Comfortable
Think of insulation like a blanket around your home, it doesn’t transfer any heat on its own but it does keep warm and cold air trapped within the walls. If you prefer to look at it scientifically, then it’s all about understanding heat flow. There’re three ways heat is transferred; conduction, convection, and radiation.
Insulation works primarily by slowing conductive heat flow, which means insulation slows down heat transferring through the walls. It locks the heat or cool air inside the house until there’s a comfortable temperature within in the home.
Why We Need Insulation
Without insulation, all the heat from your heaters would be lost to the outside world, making your home freezing and your heaters almost useless. Poor insulation would trap some heat in but make your heaters work extra harder to keep a regular temperature, which means your energy costs would skyrocket.
As you can imagine it is essential for Colorado homes to be well insulated, and it’s equally important that it’s properly installed to save energy and extra expenses.
Insulation also helps to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home, whether there’s a blizzard or its 90 degrees and sunny. Whatever temperature you set indoors, insulation will make sure that it stays that temperature.
Hot or cold, insulation is the key to saving money and keeping comfortable.
Types Of Insulation
There are a variety of insulation types an materials out there and each one is a little different from the next. While this can seem a bit overwhelming, don’t worry. Aurora Hills Insulation Company can help you decide exactly what kind of insulation you need for every type of space. We’ve also taken the time to go over a few of them below.
Fiberglass Batt Insulation
Fiberglass batts or blanket rolls insulation are some of the most commonly used. These rolls are easy to install because of their easy-to-cut material and flexibility.
This insulation can be fitted in unfinished walls, floors, ceilings, and foundation walls. It’s fitted between studs, joists, and beams. They can be used with or without a facing; such as Kraft paper, foil-Kraft paper, or vinyl. We recommend using a facing because it acts as a vapor and/or air barrier.
Batt fiberglass insulation is the cheapest we offer while still trapping heat exceptionally well. If you want a well-insulated home but have to stick to a budget, this is the best choice for you.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is especially good for sealing tight areas and air pockets. It can be applied by spraying, foamed-in-place, poured or injected into walls, attic surfaces, and under floors.
This insulation has the advantage of being used in small areas, such as around windows and door frames, and in cracks and holes in the wall.
If you are adding insulation to an already finished area, this is a good choice. Spray foam insulation is great for irregularly shaped areas and around obstructions.
Like spray foam insulation, blown-in insulation is great at conforming to tight, irregular spaces that would be hard to insulate by other methods.
This insulation consists of small particles of either foam, fiber, or other materials. Once blown-in to the desired area these particles will expand, forming an insulation material that will fit into any space without damaging structures or finishes.
Blown-in or loose-fill insulation is applied by being blown-in to the given area by specialized equipment. This insulation requires professionals to install more so than the others.
When talking about insulation you’ll often hear the phrase “R-value” quite often. This an important term to learn so you are more informed what type of insulation you need for Colorado.
R-value is the rate or measurement on which an insulating material’s resistance to heat flow is. A higher R-value means the effectiveness of the insulation will be greater.
When determining the R-value of insulation, it all depends on the type of insulation, its density, thickness, and age. If the insulation is already installed the R-value depends on the moisture accumulation, age, local temperature, and the multi-layers (if there is more than one layer).
The more insulation you install in your home, the greater the R-value of that insulation will be. Multi-layeredinsulation creates more resistance to heat flow, thus raising the overall R-value of the home.
R-value is divided into zones 1-8. Aurora is in zone 5, meaning insulation R-value will range from R25 to R60, the higher value being in the attic, ceiling, and walls to add more heat restriction and the lower value being in the floor.

Why Hire Professional Insulation Contractors?
Nowadays it’s easier than ever to do things yourself. Just a simple google search will provide you with plenty of “how-to” guides. While that is a wonderful advantage of living in this era, in some cases we end up hurting ourselves more by those guides then if we were to hire professionals.
In this specific case, hiring Aurora Hills Insulation company means getting the job done in the best way possible. Our professional workers know the most trusted installation methods and understand what insulation works best for your home.
While some insulation is easier to install than others, to get the most out of your insulation and not lessen its R-value, we suggest only having professionals install your insulation. When insulation is installed poorly or incorrectly, it will lose some of its R-value, resulting in less heat restriction. For example, if the insulation is compressed when being installed, it will not produce its full rated R-value. If blown-in or spray-foam insulation is not thoroughly applied, there will be open areas left in the surface for air, and heat, to escape to.
