Your attic and crawl space insulation serves some extremely important purposes. These largely empty, unused spaces are often forgotten when it comes to finding ways to cut your energy use. However, improving the insulation in both areas will reduce your electric bill by cutting down your need to run your furnace or air conditioner.
Comfort Services provides the highest quality attic insulation technology available. AttiCat insulation from Owens-Corning is fiberglass-based, dust-free, and non-irritating. Our trained technicians use the AttiCat Insulation Blowing Machine to apply the attic insulation. This device fluffs the insulation as it sprays, which adds millions of air pockets, which increase AttiCat’s insulating properties. Also, AttiCat’s Fiberglas™ material will not settle over time, allowing it to retain its R-value for many years to come.
Believe it or not, this revolutionary insulation can even help you reduce your carbon footprint. Owens-Corning's PINK attic insulation is manufactured using environmentally friendly, plentiful resources like recycled glass or sand. PINK is the first insulation to be labeled Green Approved. This designation helps builders meet National Green Building Standard (NGBS) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, which is of growing importance as the trend toward “green” building continues.
Sealing your crawl space is just as important as insulating it, because this will keep moisture out. A sealed crawl space will reduce your chances of having mold or mildew problems, not to mention infiltrating of pests. Outside air can seep through any opening, including poorly sealed doors or porous concrete walls.
Comfort Services technicians are experts at detecting air infiltration. We will find ways to improve your crawl space seals and insulation to improve your home’s energy efficiency and air quality.
