Insulation itself is not an air barrier, so it allows air to infiltrate your home through penetrations in the building’s envelope. This is why air sealing is a key component of the Comfort Home Program from Tidewater Insulators.
Many homes built prior to the 1980s were not required to seal electrical and plumbing penetrations to the attic and crawl spaces. This can add up to dozens of holes in your home, which can cost you money in added heating and cooling costs and affecting the level of comfort in your home. The results of our home energy audit will help our Comfort Home Specialist plan the best way to improve your home.
Sealing penetrations is the first step. Our Comfort Home Specialists will work to find those unsealed penetrations to determine where you need insulation the most. We’ll also address the room over your garage or rooms whose walls are next to the attic as well as access points to the attic and knee wall storage areas.
Most attics need ventilation to perform properly, so part of each attic insulation package contains provisions to help ensure your soffit vents are free of debris and materials. We can provide insulation in many areas of your home, including:
All of the Comfort Home Attic Packages work to raise the insulation levels in your home to code standards for new construction, which is R-38 or 15 inches of blown in fiberglass or 10.5 inches of cellulose insulation.
At Tidewater Insulators, we offer a bronze, silver and gold package for attic and crawlspace insulation. All 3 insulation packages offer air sealing either as standard or as an option. Take a look and see how the Comfort Home Program works to help you reduce energy and improve the comfort of your southeastern Virginia area home.
