The Proper Insulation will Keep your House Cool

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 08, 2011

As the days get warmer you might start dreaming of air conditioning. But, there are some other ways to keep your house more comfortable during hot summer days that are easier on your wallet and the environment.

Attics can reach temperatures over 140 degrees F on hot summer days. If there isn’t much insulation between the ceiling and attic a lot of this heat is going to be transferred into the house.  Increasing attic insulation can make a big difference in the comfort level of a home and will also cut your heating costs in the winter. By adding R40 insulation to a poorly insulated attic the temperature inside the house will drop by 6-8 º F on hot days.

Proper attic ventilation is also important in keeping your house cool and extending the life of your roof. Without it, as the sun goes down your attic won’t cool off as much and will continue to heat your house throughout the night.

The use of spray foam insulation has been rapidly growing as Architects, Builders and Homeowners become aware of the long term energy savings and comfort benefits associated with using spray foam. However, if you have a walk up attic, blanket insulation would be fine to use.

2011 Federal Tax Credits For Consumer Energy Efficiency…But For How Long?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 17, 2011

We suppose that by now you all know that our national debt is maxed out and that the politicians of both parties are digging deep to deal with the crisis.  One thing is for certain, Federal Tax Incentives of all kinds are an endangered species so think strongly of capitalizing on them while you still can.

The current tax law allows for a tax CREDIT of 10% of the material cost (up to $500 tax credit) on all types of insulation to include our Blanket Insulation, Blown-In Insulation, and Spray Foam Insulation.   We guarantee that adding Custom Insulation products to your home will save you money in home energy costs. 

We can’t guarantee the duration of Uncle Sam’s energy tax credit. Right now, it does not look long in the offering. Contact us today and we'll blow-in your new insulation before Sam blows away one of the few remaining tax breaks.
