Insulation Upgrades

Affordable Attic Insulation and Retrofit Services. Our trained specialists will determine how much insulation you need to maximize your home's energy efficiency.

How Much is Enough?

The Department Of Energy (DOE) recommends to go up to "Up to R-60 throughout the United States except for southern Florida" since the year 2008.

We use Applegate Cellulose Insulation because it provides a superior value.

This "green" insulation is environmentally friendly, is made of 80-85% recycled newsprint, and it provides an R-Value of 3.8 per inch.

Many companies advertise that they will add "inches of insulation" to homeowners' attics to achieve energy efficiency, which is very misleading.

We actually calculate the amount of insulation necessary to achieve maximum energy efficiency based on your home's square footage, the amount of insulation currently in your attic, and the desired R-Value. As such, this calculation is individualized for every home.

We densely pack our insulation in both new and existing homes, which provides a monolithic (unified, no voids or gaps) block. Dense packing takes the guess work out of the installation process, as every space that can hold insulation has insulation, ensuring that every inch is utilized to provide the maximum R-Value.

Additionally, dense packing results in enough insulation being installed at a sufficient density level to significantly reduce air movement/infiltration, as compared to other products. Our products are stable and will not settle, as opposed to other products, which ultimately settle and compress due to gravity over time, leaving you with less insulation than you paid for.

The trained specialists at will determine how much insulation you need to maximize your home's energy efficiency.

Additional Retro-Fit Services

  • Weatherization: We will determine if your home has air leaks by using several different testing measures. If we find air leaks, we will repair holes at plumbing penetrations, electrical penetration, caulk windows, and weather strip doors, as necessary. Weatherization is VERY important to your indoor comfort.
  • Duct Sealing: Leaking ducts can reduce your air conditioning unit's efficiency by up to 30%. We will test your system and make the appropriate repairs. This work may be covered wholly or in part by Local Energy Incentives programs. Call our office today to see if you qualify for incentives and/or any current rebates.
  • Attic Ventilation: Good ventilation is essential for reducing heating and cooling costs. Ventilation is a necessary component of maximizing the efficiency of your insulation and for maintaining a healthy house. We offer a wide range of ventilation products, including ridge vents, soffit vents, turbine vents, solar-powered vents, and static vents.
  • Energy Audit: Our trained representative can give you a free, no obligation general assessment of your home's energy efficiency. If you are looking for a more in-depth energy audit for your home, we can schedule a very detailed assessment of your home's energy efficiency.
