Insulation and Air Sealing Packages
Do you have to bundle up in a blanket when you’re sitting on your sofa?
The proper type and amount of insulation in your home will reduce heating and cooling costs so that you can keep your thermostat in the “blanket-free zone” for your comfort. According to the US Department of Energy, Pennsylvania is in Zone 5 due to the cold winter climate, meaning recommended insulation levels should be an R-49 (16-18” deep). For homeowners on a budget or who want to reduce their energy consumption due to environmental concerns, having a tightly sealed and insulated home will help you reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your monthly fuel bills. If your home is more than 10 years old, your home’s traditional insulation has degraded, meaning chances are it is among the 90% of US homes that are under-insulated.

If you have an old or drafty home, we can help you figure out which holes to plug first so that you can get the most bang for your buck. During your energy analysis, our specialists will identify areas of your home where air is leaking and inspect your existing insulation. They will make suggestions based on their findings to pinpoint what upgrades will reduce your energy consumption the most to provide the fastest return on your investment. Many of the suggested upgrades are settings you can adjust yourself for free or “do-it-yourself” projects that can be done at a minimal cost. You will be left with pricing on our insulation packages based on the results of your insulation inspection, with no obligation to buy.
eShield Radiant Barrier (Reflective Attic Insulation)
Nearly 50% of all energy loss happens through your attic. Cut your heating and cooling bills by 25%. While traditional insulation will be sufficient in blocking heat loss due to conductive and convective heat, it is not effective against radiant heat. We’ve partnered with eShield, as seen on Extreme Makeover Home Edition, to offer their state-of-the-art attic insulation. Having this reflective insulation installed by certified insulation specialists will reflect 97% of all radiant heat transfer, which is a leading cause of home energy waste. US Department of Energy tests show that eShield Radiant Barrier delivers more energy savings than five inches of additional fiberglass insulation.
