Are you in the process of constructing a new commercial building? Well, a great office building is the right balance between aesthetic appeal and commercial feasibility. While new designs and innovative façades are crucial for the aesthetic, a fully functional structure is one that is well planned for occupant comfort and energy efficiency. This is where new building insulation comes in.
Pure Eco Inc is a trusted and reputable new building insulation contractor that offers various insulation services that add comfort, energy efficiency, and value to commercial buildings in Los Angeles, CA. Our highly skilled and experienced team installs insulation in homes, offices, apartment buildings and more.
Thermal insulation is all about preventing heat transfer in and out of the building. Heat can be transmitted either to or from the building through the roofs, walls, floors, doors, windows, etc. Thermal insulation is crucial to sustaining a tolerable temperature inside the building. During hot weather, thermal insulation aims to reduce heat from entering the building. In cold conditions, insulation aims to minimize heat flow out of the building.
When choosing a thermal insulation product, there are several things to pay attention to. They include:
At Pure Eco Inc, we can help minimize heat flow out of your new building and boost your building’s energy efficiency by installing fiberglass insulation and cellulose insulation. These two options are extremely durable, thus will offer great value for your money.
Also referred to as soundproofing, acoustic insulation includes methods of minimizing the transfer of sound from one room to another. Besides reducing sound leakage from/to adjacent rooms, soundproofing also helps to improve sound within an acoustically insulated room. This means that insulation can help building occupants create acoustically sound settings, where they can take advantage of a peaceful space, or turn up the volume without disturbing their co-workers.
Mineral wool insulation and fiberglass insulation can give your new building an edge by attaining a high level of sound control between floors and ceilings, between interior rooms, and from exterior sources. When choosing a sound insulation product, you should pay attention to the Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) and Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings.
At Pure Eco Inc, we use Roxul soundproof insulation, which offers impact insulation in addition to sound insulation. The secret behind the effectiveness of Roxul in diminishing both impact and airborne noise lies in the denseness of the rock wool material this insulating material is made from. Our experts have many years of experience in suitably installing soundproof insulation, so they know exactly how to maximize its effectiveness.
Also referred to as fireproofing, fire insulation is a method that involves using materials that make a building resistant to fire. It aims to contain or prevent the spread of fire to other parts of the building, thus limits building damage and provides more time for building occupants to be evacuated safely.
Mineral wool insulation and fiberglass insulation are naturally non-combustible. Spray foam insulation, on the other hand, can ignite at 7000F. As for cellulose insulation, it contains fire retardants that minimize flammability. Even though the fire retardants add some level of fire resistance to cellulose insulation, it doesn’t mean that the insulation is non-combustible.
Heavy machinery creates a lot of stress on the structure of a building. Impact insulation is used to provide a building with cushioning that helps minimize shock and vibration. This makes it an ideal option for industrial and manufacturing buildings that are looking to minimize vibration from heavy machinery.
Blanket insulation is the most common and widely available type of insulation. It consists of flexible fibers, most commonly fiberglass, and it comes in the form of rolls or batts. There are also rolls and batts that are made from mineral wool, natural fibers (sheep’s wool and cotton), and synthetic (plastic) fibers.
This involves filling the hollow cores of concrete blocks with an insulating material, such as polyurethane, polystyrene, or polyiso, through injecting or pouring liquid foam or loose foam beads. Concrete block insulation is an ideal thermal insulation option whose primary task is to minimize the temperature in the structure.
Rigid foam panels or boards can be used to provide insulation in almost any part of a new building, from the foundation up to the roof. It is a very effective option in interior insulation for basement walls, exterior wall insulation, as well as special applications such as attic hatches.
Rigid fiber insulation generally consists of either mineral wool or fiberglass material. It is an ideal thermal insulation option. It is also a perfect option in places where there is a great need for insulation that is able to endure high temperatures.
This is a type of insulation that consists of tiny particles of foam, fiber, or other materials. Tiny particles form an insulation material that can be blown in. It easily conforms to any space without disturbing finishes or structures. The ability of loose-fill insulation to conform makes this type of insulation ideal for insulating areas that would be hard to insulate with other types of insulations.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy air leakage can account for about 30 percent of a building’s heating and cooling costs. The best way to prevent air leakage is air sealing, which is essentially the process of using a material that prevents the passage of air.
In addition to boosting comfort and minimizing energy costs, an air seal also helps to sustain health. Air sealing comes in handy when some of the building occupants suffer from allergies or asthma. This is because creating an air seal also locks out moisture. When an air seal is made, all allergens are locked out. Moreover, it helps to prevent future possible problems such as mold and mildew growth.
Of all forms of insulation, foam insulation is the most efficient at blocking air movement in and out of your building. When installed, this form of insulation fills all the nooks and crannies. It can be installed on walls, the attic, rim joist, and crawl space.
At Pure Eco Inc, we understand how crucial it is to create an effective air seal. That is why we usually create an effective air seal before installing insulation. This not only helps to prevent costly drafts, but it also helps to deny troublesome rodents/pests entry into your house.
When constructing a new building, it is important to adhere to the most recent building energy costs. While building to code enables you to meet the legal minimum, it does not deliver the benefits that new building insulation offers to occupants, such as:
The production, utilization, and disposal of insulation is linked to a number of both positive and negative environmental impacts. Unfortunately, not many are conversant with the environmental characteristics of insulation. Consequently, deciding on one insulation material over the other can be difficult.
Even though choices appear to be obvious today, factors may change. Therefore, those decisions should be reconsidered from time to time. We offer the following recommendations in relation to the choice of insulation and use:
If you are having a hard time choosing environmentally-friendly insulation for your new building, we can help you make an informed choice. This will not only ensure that you are making a choice that is safe for the environment, but it will also ensure that the health of all occupants of your building will be safeguarded.
Even though some insulation materials are very easy to install for any do-it-yourselfer, it is highly recommended that you hire the services of a new building insulation contractor in Los Angeles, CA. While there are many reasons why you need to delegate this task to an insulation company like Pure Eco Inc, they can be summed up in one word – Experience.
By hiring an insulation company, you are simply delegating this intricate task to a highly experienced staff that knows the most ideal type of insulation materials to use on your new building, and how to install the materials so you can get the most of the insulation. we will consider all important factors, such as the climatic conditions of the area your building is located in, among other factors.
I already had my main attic done last year by a different company that did not do what they said they would and ended up damaging my ceiling. Decided to go with a different company this time around for a smaller attic of an addition that isn’t directly connected to the main attic.
The attic had no insulation at all (built in the 1930s). It needed debris vacuumed out, rodent proofing, and R-38 batt insulation.
After getting quotes from several folks, decided to go with Pure Eco. Quick turnaround, reasonably priced, good professional crew lead by Martin, and clear communication through my assigned contact Jasmine. Discussion and quote was based on photos I took. Contract and payment was handled all through e-doc services. And they made sure to give me an overview of the work done before leaving. The difference in temperature was a noticeable improvement that night.
Our home needed some serious insulation and duct work done. It was awful and quite old (the insulation shrunk to approximately 3″). We called three companies for a quote, and we only saw two. We decided to go with them, before seeing the third, because of the amazing deal they offered and because they would be able to do it immediately. Ben was our sales guy and he was more than helpful and extremely knowledgeable. He made sure to inform us that they are licensed, bonded, and have workers’ compensation insurance, which kept me at ease.
The following day was the installation. Ben told us that they would be there from 8AM – 7PM (latest). They arrived on time, and completed the job by 3PM!!! I was shocked and thoroughly pleased. William, the supervisor of our job, was extremely friendly, and his crew was very professional. They cleaned up their mess; it looked as clean as when they arrived.
I highly recommend them and think that anyone that uses them will do so as well. Hi
I am a firm believer in referrals from friends when it comes to anything for my home and this company was a good referral for sure. My husband and I love Pure Eco and would definitely recommend them to everyone.
They have very professional installers and managers. Everything went smoothly from the scheduling to the end of the job. They use new machines and trucks (I tend to judge a book by it’s cover, unfortunately).
We had them replace our duct system and they installed Radiant barrier. They came in and did their job and left with no mess behind. Definitely give them a try!
We recently bought a house in Canyon Country and the garage was completely exposed and got extremely hot this time of year. When it was 90 degrees outside, the garage was well over 100 degrees. I got quotes from about a half dozen companies but was the most impressed with Pure Eco, especially their representative Sara. She was very helpful and she worked with me on the quote and gave me a lot of of great suggestions as to the best way to get our garage as cool as possible while staying within our limited budget. She recommended insulating the ceiling and front gable and then putting in radiant barrier. Her team came out and did the job in one afternoon and cleaned up afterwards. And now our garage is a LOT cooler. I can definitely recommend Pure Eco.
