Matthew called in wanting to make his house more energy efficient and hoped it would help lower his monthly energy cost. With that, we sent our Home Comfort Specialist, Jonathan, to go and see how we can help! Jonathan recommended installing new blown in cellulose, along with spray foaming some of his HVAC in his attic. His existing insulation was outdated and did not give him the proper R-value for his area and the ductwork was not sealed properly which caused air to leak into the attic. With that recommendation from Jonathan, we sent out our Home Comfort Technicians to properly insulate that attic. We started by air sealing the top plates that run throughout the attic and stapling up baffles in order to help the attic breathe with all the new blown-in cellulose insulation. After we blow in the new insulation to the proper R-value, we spray foam the return boxes of his HVAC system to prevent further air leakage.
Matthew was happy to see his energy bill go down while enjoying better temperatures within his house!
