Protect the Environment
Adding or replacing poor insulation reduces power consumption which reduces greenhouse gasses. By combining proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you can cut your energy use for heating and cooling and reduce environmental emissions -- from 20%-50%.
A properly insulated home reduces the amount of time the heating and cooling systems are required to run and therefore reduces equipment wear, which increases equipment life. Adding insulation reduces the load on the equipment and allows the equipment to effectively control temperatures. Heating and cooling your home uses more energy and costs more money than any other system in your home -- typically making up about 54% of your utility bill.
Our wildlife inspectors frequently find that many homes were under-insulated since the time of construction. We also find that after wild animals have resided in an attic or crawlspace for any length of time, the insulation will be damaged and animal waste contamination will have occurred. Insulation will be removed from large areas by the animals, become matted with feces, body oils, excrement and compressed destroying the insulations thermal barrier, or R value.
The U.S. Department of Energy has recommended guidelines for the proper R values. Our Insulation Specialist will advise you on these values and ensure your insulation is installed IAW State Building Codes.
One of the most cost-effective and immediate result producing ways to cut heating and cooling costs and make a home more energy efficient is to add insulation. After animal waste remediation has been accomplished, applying new insulation to the, sanitized attic, crawl space or walls is the final step of the waste remediation process. This will leave the space clean and properly insulated to help control heating and cooling costs. Loose-fill/blown-in insulation or bats insulation usually made of fiberglass or cellulose will be installed by our certified specialists.
