insulation contractor adding attic insulation
It may seem obvious that your home’s attic needs insulation. But do you really know why it matters? Here are three reasons to upgrade your attic insulation and seal attic air leaks:
  • Heating and cooling costs account for up to 50-70 percent of the energy used in an average home. Taking steps to improve your home’s energy efficiency keeps your energy bills low and reduces wear and tear on your HVAC system. 
  • Air naturally moves upward through your house. Adding insulation and sealing air leaks in your attic prevents air you’ve already paid to heat or cool from leaving your home.
  • Insulating and air sealing your attic can prevent unconditioned air from coming into your home. This means your HVAC system has to work less to maintain your home’s interior temperature.
Adding insulation to your attic is one of the most cost effective ways to save money on your energy bills each month. Wondering if your home could benefit from additional attic insulation? Contact us for a free estimate.

contractor insulating basement
For most homes, basement rim joists and box sills are a major source of energy loss. These areas are located around the perimeter of the basement ceiling, where the walls of the home meet the foundation.

This is one of the thinnest points in a home’s exterior, which allows outside air to easily leak into the basement. This area is also a convenient way for pests to enter a home – spiders, bugs and other creatures can easily find their way from the ground outside your home, into home through penetration points left behind around HVAC, electrical and plumbing access points around the basement ceiling.

Spray foam is an ideal product to both insulate and air seal the rim joists and box sills. Spray foam insulation is a two-in-one product that both seals air leaks and insulates – and it goes beyond what a homeowner can do on their own.

Insulating and air sealing your rim joists and box sills will make your basement (and entire home) more comfortable, help keep out pests and help reduce your energy bills. Contact us to schedule your free estimate!
