Proper insulation and sealing are paramount to having a comfortable and energy-efficient home. Without it, your home or building will always cost you more to operate than it should.
The Department Of Energy says air infiltration is the leading cause of energy loss. Homes built before 2000 had no requirements for sealing those gaps and cracks where air can escape your home. These entry and exit ways will cause your insulation to be ineffective and your HVAC system to work overtime to heat and cool your home.

Spray foam, cellulose, and fiberglass
Spray foam insulation can reduce heating and cooling cost up to 50%. It is used to both insulate and air seal all the gaps and cracks in your home. Spray foam provides incredible improvements in attics with HVAC equipment and ducts by reducing the attic’s temperature. Eliminate 2nd-floor hot summer comfort issues with spray foam.
Fiberglass insulation is used in attics, walls, and crawl spaces. Whether you use batt or blow-in, it is more effective when used in conjunction with air sealing. Cellulose insulation is used as an alternative to blown fiberglass in attics. It is made from recycled paper products, but it does weigh more than blown fiberglass. Older homes should be inspected to verify the ceilings can handle the extra weight.

Old or contaminated insulation is not only ineffective at providing energy cost savings, but it can also present health risks in your home.
Asbestos insulation has been officially banned in most countries since the late 1980s. Nevertheless, it’s still found in many older homes across the country. Asbestos can cause a wide variety of health issues, such as:
- Lung cancer
- Increased risk of throat, esophagus and kidney cancers.
Insulation removal may be appropriate in crawl spaces with batt insulation rated less than R-19. We can use our insulation vacuum to suck out the old, blown-in insulation so we can properly seal and insulate the space.
