Attic & Floor Insulation Contractors
However, modern technology has given us many different types of insulation, each with different features and efficiencies that are used for specific situations or to achieve certain goals.
Each house is different, and specific conditions or locations in your home may require different types of insulation. We understand the building science behind proper insulation, and we'll determine the best type of insulation for your needs and budget.
- Blown-in cellulose insulation is a great solution for open spaces like your attic, and hard-to-reach places such as inside wall cavities, and blown-in fiberglass is recommended if moisture may be an issue.
- Closed cell spray-foam insulation provides a moisture barrier and is best suited for your leaky basement or for outdoor use.
- Open cell spray-foam insulation seals air leaks, which reduces energy loss and improves indoor air quality, while dampening sounds.
- Stone wool (Rockwool®) insulation is an extremely durable, environmentally sustainable, fire-resistant option that protects against unwanted noise.
- Foam board insulation consists of rigid panels of insulation which can be used to insulate almost any part of your home, providing high insulating value for relatively little thickness.
We're different from regular insulation companies who will come in and lay down some insulation. Seems simple enough. But did they seal the air leaks first? Adding insulation without first sealing air leaks is a waste of money. Outside air will blow right through most types of insulation, which greatly reduces its effectiveness.
We take a "whole house approach". Before adding insulation, we consider several factors in your home, such as the size and strength of your heating and cooling equipment, the effectiveness of your ventilation system, the number of windows, etc. We may adjust the amount and type of insulation based on these factors. And if you choose, we can optimize your home's comfort and energy efficiency, starting with a home energy audit which will uncover all the areas of your home where energy is being wasted and where comfort, safety and durability can be improved.
Start With an Energy Assessment
Having proper insulation can help increase your comfort, save energy, and improve your home's safety and durability. But the first step is to schedule an energy assessment to find out exactly what home improvement work is recommended for your home.

We were unaware of what was involved in an energy audit and your audior took the time to explain everything. We were impressed with the report which told us the areas in which we need to take action on. He never pressured us to use any particular contractors, he just suggested that we go to the HomeEnergyTeam web site to select contractors of our own choice. He did an excellent job and we HIGHLY recommend the Home Energy Team Affiliates. We already have recommended them to several of our neighbors. Again, EXCELLENT JOB!
The Home Energy Team Affiliate auditor was very knowledgeable. I was VERY HAPPY with him. He promptly E-mailed my energy audit report to me and I will consider all of his recommendations.

The energy auditor was very professional and I am very satisfied with both the energy audit and the report I received. I will be referring the Home Energy Team Affiliates.
I was very satisfied with the auditor. He was great and gave me some very valuable information. I will refer him to people I know who may need a home energy audit.
Your home energy audit proved to be very informative and helpful. I was not aware of the updraft created inside our walls because of the balloon framing construction. You said that that can cause heat to be pulled out of the house with the draft going up inside the walls and should be re-mediated. You also said that the attic insulation was insufficient and that fiberglass batts can leave spaces for around the edges causing heat loss and that it should have blown in insulation on top of what was there to seal the whole attic and increase the R factor. Thank You for all your advice and expertise. You made me aware of things I should consider and did the upgrades. I can already see the difference on my utility bills!
