needs insulation.Give us a call or email
and we will come to your home to

Common Signs of Inadequate Insulation
   
:  
Do you have ice dams, icicles, roof
    "hot spots",high heating bills, high
     cooling bills or drafty walls?

:   Does your furnace seems to run 
     too much in the winter, and your
     air conditioning runs constantly 
     all summer long?

   
IF you answered YES to any of the
above questions there is  good chance
your insulation levels are inadequate.
Re-insulating your home is one of the
fastest and most cost-efficient ways
to reduce energy
waste and maximize your energy dollars.

        The Ins and Outs of Insulation
Did you know that the average family spends close to $1,500 a year on their home's utility bills? Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted through poor insulation. Checking your home's insulation system is one of the fastest and most cost-efficient ways to reduce energy waste and maximize your energy dollars. You probably should insulate if you:
  • have an older home and haven't added insulation. In a recent survey, only 20% of homes built before 1980 were well insulated.
  • are uncommonly cold in the winter or hot in the summer; adding insulation creates a more uniform temperature and increases comfort.
  • build a new house or addition, or install new siding or roofing.
  • pay excessive energy bills.
  • are bothered by noise from the outdoors; insulation helps to muffle sound.
  • are concerned about the effect of energy use on the environment.
