Insulation is just as important in the summer as it is in the winter. A well-insulated house will be
COOL IN SUMMER and WARM IN WINTER.
Most homes absorb heat through the roof, so insulating the attic floor stops heat from reaching the rest of the house. Properly insulated homes can use 30% to 50% less energy than homes without insulation. Lining your "Thermal Envelope" adding materials that don't readily allow heat to leak through your walls, ceilings, floors, from around your home's foundations and its ductwork - SAVES ENERGY by keeping the heat in during the winter and keeping the heat out during the summer.
Crawlspaces are prone to high levels of humidity and moisture that can lead to mold and mildew. Inadequate insulation allows toxins from mold and dangerous outside air pollutants to enter living areas of the home.
Have you ever walked barefoot across a tile or vinyl floor and noticed that it seemed very cold? Insulating the crawlspace or basement increases the comfort level in your home and decreases heating and cooling expenses.
A VAPOR BARRIER (shown in the picture) slows or prevents the evaporation of ground moisture into the crawspace air. A vapor barrier resists the passage of air. This is important because once moisture reaches the inside of the home, it can cause mold and mildew damage, wood rot, insect infestations and blistering paint.
Depending on the type of wall insulation used, the product may also help to soundproof the space and minimize the amount of noise that enters or escapes from the room, as well as help to seal tiny cracks where the house has settled and the joints are no longer in perfect alignment.
Blow-in Cellulose insulation seals houses better by limiting the air flow, not only through the insulating material, but also around difficult to insulate areas such as the gaps around electrical boxes, wiring and plumbing. Cellulose insulation can also handle non-standard or off-center wall stud spacing areas better than batts.
Field tests have shown that Cellulose insulation can provide a building envelope that is 36% tighter than a fiberglass insulation seal.
Since up to 50% of household air can flow up from your crawl space, it’s important to keep this typically unsightly space as clean and dry as possible. Since water vapor enters the crawl space from the ground (even through cement), many people are encapsulating their crawl space to keep the moisture out. Adding a crawl space vapor barrier and dehumidifier is widely accepted as the best way to improve indoor air quality and make energy improvements inside your home.
Pressure washing your home or commercial building is a common, effective approach to removing mold, dirt, dust or mildew to provide a thorough cleaning and enhance the overall appearance of your property. It is also an important first step when engaging in a painting process as well since it ensures a smoother finish when your painting home improvement project is completed. The combination of pressure and heat allows us to open the pores of the concrete to reach the dirt trapped below the surface. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to be efficient and thorough to achieve that high quality clean that you expect from a professional exterior cleaning service.
At Hometown Insulation, we know where to find air leaks in your home. Of all the tools that a home energy professional can bring to the inspection, few compare to the usefulness and “cool factor” of the thermal infrared camera. This powerful little tool allows the auditor to see what is otherwise invisible or hidden from view. We also use some specialized equipment to get a complete picture of how your home is losing energy. We use a blower door test to identify key problem areas in the home. This process allows us to find all the small air leaks that are causing you to lose energy and waste money, allowing us to create a custom solution plan.
