We install JM Climate Pro blown-in fiber glass insulation, which is a premium alternative to cellulose. Unlike cellulose, it won't settle, hold moisture, suffer permanent loss of R-Value, decay or provide food for animals or microbes. It's blown in to cover attics and hard-to-reach areas within attics, like corners, edges and around framing. It is noncorrosive and noncombustible. When it's applied to the recommended thickness and specifications, you can be assured that your home is energy-efficient, with minimal heat loss. Climate Pro is made locally using more than 50% recycled glass, and is chemical free. Because it is guaranteed never to settle, it's effective for the life of your home.
Upgrading the insulation in your attic is the most cost effective way to improve the efficiency of your home. This upgrade can be completed within a few short hours, with no mess left afterwards.
Generally, the attic is the easiest insulation upgrade to perform in a finished home. Studies show that between 25% and 35% of the heat in your home is lost through the attic, so it is very important that it is properly insulated. A properly insulated attic will reduce the cost to heat your home in the winter and keep your home cool throughout the summer.
How do you upgrade attic insulation?
After you have reviewed your written estimate, had all your questions answered, and approve the job we will set up an installation appointment that works best for you. Typically we book 5-10 days ahead of time, but this may vary over the course of the year.
On your install date our uniformed employees will show up on time and have you sign off on your quote if you haven’t already. At this point, the installers will:
- Lay down plastic backed drop cloths from you front door to your attic hatch, and corner protection to prevent any damage to your home when they walk in and out, and bring the hose in and out of the attic.
- Enter the attic and mark the required depth for the new insulation to ensure you get exactly the right amount of insulation, and install insulation stops if your home requires them. Insulation stops are required in homes built before 1980 to ensure that there is adequate space along the soffit for fresh air to enter your attic.
- Bring in the hose that is used to blown in your new insulation, and then one installer will begin loading material into the blowing machine in the truck and the other will install the insulation in your attic.
- Build an attic access collar to contain the new, deeper insulation out of rolled cardboard, and insulate and weatherstrip the attic hatch panel.
- Complete the installation and offer you a chance to take a look at the work prior to closing the hatch.
- Take the hose out of the home, roll up the drop cloths, and vacuum up any trace of insulation.
- Collect payment and leave you with a receipt for your records.
