Insulation Services For Your Attic & Crawl Space
Installing new insulation makes your home more energy-efficient, saves you money on utility bills, improves indoor air quality and enhances your home’s acoustics!
According to the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association, 90% of homes in the United States are under-insulated. That means most Americans are throwing hundreds of dollars out the window (or more specifically, their attics and crawl spaces) each year in energy costs. At Atticare, our mission is to help as many homeowners as possible achieve a more energy-efficient, comfortable and sanitary home, while saving money at the same time.
One of the best ways to reach this goal is to have your home properly insulated with modern, high-quality insulation materials. The US Department of Energy recommends at least 13-14 inches of insulation for southern climates and even more depending on how cold your area gets in the winter. If your home’s insulation falls below these standards, you are likely wasting money on energy bills and leaving a larger carbon footprint than necessary.
Professional Attic and Crawl Space Audits
If you suspect your home could benefit from an insulation upgrade, the experts at Atticare can inspect your attic and crawl space to help you determine their current conditions and the best course of action.
Our insulation professionals will look for:
- Water damage
- Air ducts damage
- Mold and mildew
- Pest and rodent infestation
- Old or worn-out insulation
Following the audit, our team will report back to you with their findings and make recommendations for the most affordable and effective solutions. If you decide you would like to move forward with having your insulation replaced, we can also walk you through the best options for your home when it comes to what type of insulation to install.
Attic and Crawl Space Insulation Removal & Replacement
Depending on the state of your insulation, we may recommend you either replace areas of your insulation that have sustained damage or completely overhaul the entire area. This all depends on the age of your current insulation and whether or not it has been impacted by pests, rodents, mold or water damage.
Water, excess moisture and mold are among the most common culprits of insulation damage. Drying out the insulation and removing the mold doesn’t address the cause of the problem because the mold spores will continue to flourish and spread. Though the problem may seem remedied on the surface, the damage beneath remains so replacing it is the only option. Replacing your damaged insulation will save you a lot of money and more importantly, your home will be clean, safe and energy efficient.
Rodents and pests are also common causes of damage to your insulation as well as other parts of your attic and crawl space. Rodents in particular are prone to burrowing and hiding inside some forms of insulation like fiberglass and cellulose. While making their nests in your home, they leave feces that pollute indoor air.
If the insulation in your attic and crawl space has signs of rodent or pest infestation, it should be replaced as quickly as possible to avoid exposure to health issues. Simply adding a new layer of insulation on top of the old one won’t solve the problem because odors and contamination will remain. Replacing the damaged insulation with a new, higher-quality substitute is the best option to decontaminate the space.
Atticare also offers rodent proofing services to help prevent more creatures from entering your home and nesting in your attic and crawl space. Our method is a one-time solution that is non-toxic, pesticide-free, and safe for children and pets.
