Skip DIY: Why You Should Hire an Insulation Contractor

By | News

Many homeowners like to tackle home improvement projects. With available tools such as online videos and retail store guidance, homeowners feel confident in taking on almost any project. When it comes to installing or upgrading home insulation, it’s best to hire a professional insulation contractor.

Here are three reasons why you should hire a professional insulation contractor:

  1. Proper Installation. Without proper installation techniques, insulation will not perform correctly. A professional insulation contractor has the experience and training to install insulation to maximize performance.
  2. Building Code and Building Science Knowledge. Hiring a professional insulation contractor gives you access to a wide array of knowledge and training. Professional insulation contractors are up to date on local building codes, new insulation technologies and installation methods. They will ensure that your home is properly insulated and as energy efficient as possible.
  3. Safety. A professional insulation contractor conducts safety training for its installer team. The correct safety training reduces the risk of workplace injury. A professional insulation contractor is trained to spot hazards such as wiring (including knob and tube issues), installing around other combustible materials and more.

Why an Energy Audit and Testing is Important

By | News

An energy audit (also known as a home energy assessment) will give you a total overview of your home’s current energy use. It will also report how much energy you use in your home now and where you are losing energy. The energy audit and testing gives you information for making your home more energy efficient and more comfortable.

An energy audit and testing assesses the factors that uniquely affect your home’s energy use. This technique gathers and evaluates the data with a custom software system that provides you with a list of suggested home improvements.

An energy audit/testing is used for existing and new homes under construction. An audit can help you select the correct building materials, lighting and design to make your home as energy efficient as possible.
