Whether you’re building a brand new home, or you have a home that you want to be more energy efficient, All Weather Insulation is your go-to insulator! We are licensed, certified, and insured to install insulation in new homes, and add insulation as needed in existing homes. Our insulation team improves the energy efficiency, comfort and value of homes. Our methods of installing insulation are unmatched. We go the extra mile to air seal each home we are privileged to work on, in order to save you money in the long run on your energy bills.
This is a term used by insulation contractors to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Unfortunately, even new homes may have insulation issues that should be addressed. We would love to answer any questions you might have, below are some retrofit services we offer.
- Batt fiberglass: Fiberglass batt insulation, which has been used to insulate homes for decades, is one of the most commonly installed types of insulation and works well in multiple areas of a home.
- Blown-in fiberglass: Blown-in is another form of fiberglass insulation. This material helps fill in small cracks and gaps in attics and walls.
- Gun foam sealing: This is not the type of insulation that you’d find at a home improvement store. We use a special foam gun that is adjustable to apply the right amount of foam needed to fill in gaps in attics, walls, outlets, and more.
- Blower door test: We are proud to offer blower door tests to accurately locate exactly where there are leaks in your home. This test pulls air from the inside of your home to the exterior, which helps us locate exactly where the air leaks are in your home.
We are experts when it comes to insulation and energy solutions for both new and existing commercial spaces—offices, agricultural buildings, warehouses and other industrial buildings, retail centers, metal buildings, etc.
Simply put, we get the job done…right! Although insulation is only 1%-2% of the total cost of a new building, it is one of the most important things you can do to help those who will be in it, be comfortable. We also want the building to be energy efficient, so you’re not wasting money on utilities each month.
We specialize in:
- Fiberglass: Fiberglass has been used to insulate buildings for decades and is one of the most commonly installed insulation materials. It is mostly composed of natural ingredients such as sand and recycled glass products (windows, bottles, etc.).
- Rigid board: Typically installed in new buildings, rigid board insulation offers high insulating value for relatively little thickness. We install Thermax Insulation Board.
Insulation for Office & Commercial Buildings
Commercial retrofit insulation, or re-insulation, projects include adding more insulation, and/or air sealing existing buildings. Insulation doesn’t perform flawlessly forever, and there becomes a point when old insulation should be removed and new insulation installed. Re-insulating your building can help you reduce your energy bills and stay comfortable no matter the season.
If you’re a builder or contractor who needs to work with an insulation company on a new building construction insulation project, we have the expertise and experience you need.
Give us a call and well be happy to assist you with your insulation needs.
Do you need to remove old insulation from your attic or elsewhere in your home? We offer residential insulation removal services you can count on, whatever the project entails.
New insulation can be installed on top of old insulation in some cases, but there are times when insulation should be removed. An insulation professional will be able to assess your insulation and determine whether or not it should be replaced. But in general, insulation needs to be removed when it is:
- Infested by rodents
- Damp or wet
- Damaged by fire or anything else
Also, according to ENERGY STAR, any vermiculite insulation (which is more likely to have asbestos) should be tested and, if asbestos is present, professionally removed. If insulation is damaged, it won’t be as effective at stopping heat transfer and maximizing the energy efficiency and comfort of your home or building.
Are your energy bills higher than normal? Is it drafty and uncomfortable inside your home? You may need to seal air leaks.
All Weather Insulation offers whole-house air sealing. Instead of re-insulating your entire house, air sealing is more economical, and in many cases, more effective as well.
About Air Sealing
Do you or someone in your house suffer from allergies, or asthma?
One of the best things that you can do if you have allergies or asthma; is to air seal your home. Please read below, how air sealing your home can help eliminate pollutants, dust, pollen, and other debris that may be contributing to asthma or allergies.
What Is the Air Sealing Process?
Air leakage, or infiltration, is outside air that enters a house through cracks and openings. The recommended strategy in both new and old homes is to reduce air leakage as much as possible and provide controlled ventilation as needed.
The air sealing process involves the use of a blower door, which includes a fan that pulls air out of the house and allows outside air to flow in through unsealed cracks and openings. With smoke pencils and infrared cameras, our specialists can find these leaks and seal them. This helps homeowners reduce energy consumption, as well as prevent moisture condensation problems, uncomfortable drafts and uneven heating or cooling. Almost every home has, to some degree, these air leaks, and if they are sealed up, you will not only save money or your heating and cooling bill, but you’ll also keep out dust, pollutants, and keep some of those allergy-inducing molecules out of your home.
What Are the Benefits of Home Sealing?
Air infiltration can account for 30 percent or more of a home’s heating and cooling costs and contribute to problems such as:
- Moisture infiltration
- Mold and mildew development
- Infiltration of dust, pollen and other debris
- And more
Reducing infiltration can help significantly cut annual heating and cooling costs, improve interior comfort and contribute to a healthier indoor environment.
What Are the Biggest Sources of Energy Loss?
Although windows, doors, and outside walls contribute to air leakage, the biggest holes are usually hidden from view and connect the house to the attic, crawl space or basement.
The main key is to identify these areas during the design process, assign responsibility for sealing holes and check to help ensure that the air sealing was done effectively. Usually, all big holes are sealed first, then the large cracks and penetrations and, finally, the smaller cracks and seams are sealed.
