Attic Insulation in Howell, NJ
This is a typical case of a 2 story home where the 2nd floor is uncomfortably hot in the summer, the house is drafty and the energy bills are higher than they should be.
1st-We met with the customer, identified what their concerns are and what they would like to accomplish. 2nd we performed a comprehensive home evaluation, including Infrared camera inspection to locate possible insulation deficiencies, a blower door test, to measure and identify where the house is losing and gaining heat through air leakage, in addition checking for potential health and safety concerns.
A scope of work was developed that met the customer's budget and would accomplish the results they were looking.
The pictures show, Insulation deficiencies, leaky recessed lights, uninsulated ductwork, bath fan not vented correctly, chases, drop down cavity and a gas leak. All having a impact on comfort.
All these items where properly repaired by our fully trained crew, the job was tested at completion to measure our results and the gas leak was repaired.
Results: Reduced excessive air leakage by 73%, bath fan vented properly, ducts repaired and insulated, attic access treated and insulation level increased from an average of R-11 to R-60.
This will drastically improve comfort and reduce energy consumption paying for itself over time.
