Custom Insulation Company - Blanket Insulation in Worcester, Boston, MA

Properly insulating your home not only saves you money on heating and cooling bills, but it is a home improvement project that returns positive return on investment. This is not elective cosmetic work. To the contrary, this is money so well invested that it ranks as one of the few investments that immediately begins to pay for itself in terms of lowered energy bills.

Today we’re going to help you conduct a self-inspection of your home’s insulation. You might be surprised just how porous your insulation condition might be.

  1. In unfinished attics, insulate between and over the floor joists to seal off living spaces below. As well as the attic access door
  2. All exterior walls, including the walls between living spaces and unheated garages, or storage areas; foundation walls above ground level; foundation walls in heated basements, and full interior or exterior walls.
  3. Floors above cold spaces, such as vented crawl spaces and garages. Also, insulate any portion of the floor in a room that extends beyond the exterior wall below; slab floors built directly on the ground; as an alternative to floor insulation, foundation walls of unvented crawl spaces. Extend insulation into joist space to reduce air flows.
  4. Band joists. An uninsulated band joist can account for a significant portion of a building's heat loss.
  5. Replacement or storm windows and caulk and seal around all windows and doors.
