Attic Insulation If you live in an older home and have never upgraded your insulation, you'll see a significant increase in your comfort and a decrease in your energy bills by upgrading your attic insulation to a higher R-value. The R-value of insulation indicates its resistance to heat flow. In the summer, insulation with a higher R-value is better at keeping hot air out. And, in the winter, it's better at keeping warm air inside. If you'd like to increase your comfort and decrease your energy bills, upgrade your home's attic insulation to an R-value of R-38 or higher.
Spray foam in attics provides the great benefits.
*** Spray foam insulation is an excellent thermal barrier creating a semi-conditioned space that stays cool in the summer and stops heat from escaping during winter months.
*** Spray foam seals out the dirt, dust and pollen that accumulates in attics after decades, to ensure a healthier environment with better indoor air quality.
Homes with vaulted or cathedral ceilings are very vulnerable to losing energy and air leakage. A very effective method brining these type of ceilings up to modern standards is called "Dense packing". This process involves accessing the space between the ceiling joist using a long tube and high pressure equipment that installs the cellulose at approximately 3.5 lbs. per cubic ft. to create a great thermal barrier and air barrier that significantly reduces energy consumption.
WeatherMasters came highly recommended and after dealing with them I understand why. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied with the job. Many contractors want to get in, get the money, and get out. But WeatherMasters took care to discuss the plan in detail. They listened to my problems and concerns, were open to my input, and also gave me some very valuable information about energy savings in general. Phil H******, the owner, is someone you can trust. He genuinely cares about his customers. Don't call anyone else.
