The attic is the most important area of a home to insulate. Attics also usually allow for the highest r-value of any other area of your home. In the event your current attic insulation is contaminated, ABS can also remove existing insulation and disinfect the area before installing new insulation.
Wall insulation is vital for keeping your home comfortable and efficient. ABS can drill into most wall substrates to fill the stud bays with insulation in the event your home was built before wall insulation became code in the 1960s. Afterward we seal the holes with a material-appropriate plug and match the interior/exterior texture.
Installing insulation under your floor thermally isolates your home from the area below. Taking this step often allows us to seal gaps and cracks that affect indoor air quality, sap energy from your home, and potentially allow rodents to make their way in.
Catwalks and Storage
Installing a catwalk for future ease of access in your attic can make any future work done on your home much simpler while protecting the investment you made on your insulation. ABS can install attic platforms and catwalks before installing insulation.
Utilizing a blower door, we are able to test your entire home's air tightness to determine how much energy you're losing to cracks and gaps. We are able to locate the worst of these leaks during the test utilizing an IR Camera.
Using expanding foam, caulk, specialized tapes, and other materials we are able to better seal your home to stop energy from escaping and dirty air from making its way in.
By sealing your home's air envelope, you gain more control over where the air in your home comes from. Before sealing much of the air that infiltrates to your living space comes from your crawlspace and attic, both dirty and full of contaminates.
