GOING BEYOND THE MINIMUM
Insulation is one of the keys to a comfortable, energy-efficient home. About half of the energy used in Midwest homes is used to keep the home warm or cool. Attic insulation is vital to the comfort of your home. The greatest energy savings often come from ensuring the home has adequate attic insulation levels.
Just installing insulation in the crawl space can increase energy efficiency and make the home more comfortable. If you have a moisture problem, a vapor barrier may be needed.
Sometimes insulation removal is necessary prior to re-insulation or retrofitting. Also, insulation removal can be vital for the health and safety of your environment after your insulation has been damaged by fire, water, mold, rodents, and other pests. Our insulation professionals will be able to assess your insulation and determine whether or not it needs to be removed.
On new construction or remodels you will want to minimize any air movement in and out of the house. Air sealing a house increases your comfort by reducing the drafts in a house and reduced the cycle time that your heating and cooling systems will run.
Vapor barriers are an important part of moisture control for interiors. A vapor barrier is a vapor diffusion retarder (VDR) and does not control air movement; it controls the movement of moisture. Vapor barriers keep damage causing moisture from rising up from underneath the crawlspace helping to prevent rust and corrosion on the ductwork.
