Wall Insulation Contractors
Wall Insulation Contractors in the Washington, DC Metro Area (including Virginia & Maryland Surrounding Areas)
When it comes to wall insulation, the good news is that your walls probably already have insulation in them. The bad news is that the insulation may be insufficient, and if that's the case, it could be costing you a lot of extra money on your energy bills and causing comfort issues.
Getting The Insulation Into the Wall
It is easier to get insulation into the walls when the studs are exposed – like when a home is being built, or being remodeled. Once the wallboard or finishing material goes up, the best way to get insulation into the walls is by drilling holes near the top of the wall, and blowing cellulose insulation behind the finished wall.
Wall Insulation Starts With Air Sealing
Air sealing is just as important as wall insulation. If you can feel cold air around your electrical outlets and window trims on cold days, this means that your walls probably need to be air sealed. Air sealing will fill in the gaps, cracks and holes where air leakage occurs, and stop warm air from escaping and cold air from coming into your warm house.
Walls, Windows and Doors
Wall insulation isn't the only factor affecting how well an exterior wall keeps your home insulated - it also depends on the windows and doors in that wall. Energy Star rated exterior doors and windows have insulated cores and thermal breaks that make them energy efficient, and can save you money on your heating and cooling costs each month.
Basements, Attics And More
Basements, attics and crawl spaces are generally areas that are poorly insulated and poorly sealed, leading to air leakage and colder/hotter areas of your home. Taking care of the air sealing and insulation in these key areas can lower the cost of heating and cooling your entire house.

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 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!
