Insulation Services Photo Album: Upgraded Attic Insulation and Spray Foaming Ducts in Toronto, OH

Album Description

This Toronto, OH home owner was was experiencing high energy bills.  Are home comfort certified technician discovered heating and venting ducts in the attic. He also discovered that the attic was insulated with fiberglass to an R-value of 18.

Heating and venting ducts in a unconditioned attic causes your heating/cooling systems to work overtime to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  Pushing cold air through a hot attic or warm air through a cold attic just doesn't make sense.  Using Spray Foam we sprayed the ducts adding insulation and R-value to the ducts.  

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends a R-value between 49-60 for attics in zone 5 (Northern U.S.) This customer had a R-Value of 18 in his attic which was inadequate and correlates directly to his high energy bills.  We air sealed and insulated using TrueSoft Cellulose insulation to a value of R-60.

In conclusion this home owner noticed immediately that his heating system wasn't running as often.  We essentially increased the life of his heating and cooling systems and lowered his energy bills.  Another win for both the home owner and Home Environment Solutions!
