One of the most common ways to protect your home from the elements is insulating your attic. Utilizing blown in insulation, we run a hose from our truck to the attic access using the least intrusive route. I physically maneuver through the attic to add the proper amount through the entire space. The material is forced through the hose from a powerful motor located in our truck while my son fills the machine.
Another extremely effective means to insulate is through all exterior walls. A variety of methods can be used to ensure each space between the framing is thoroughly insulated. Most require drilling a hole through the wall and inserting a hose up and down the wall cavity either from the inside or outside depending on customer preference.
Basements and crawl spaces are often over looked when it comes to insulation. They are equally important to reduce cold and drafty floors as well as adding to the barrier between you and the outside world. Inside the crawl space we can attach a vinyl faced fiberglass blanket to the exterior blocks of the foundation and lay heavy grade plastic on the floor to reduce cool damp air from the ground. We can also insulate the floor joists to get rid of cold floors in the icy winters.
Air infiltration as well as heat escaping your home is a quiet thief robbing you every month. That is why it is important to not only insulate but properly ventilate. Starting from the basement or crawl space to the roof line. Proper insulation and ventilation provides a comfort barrier between you and the outside world.
