Home Now More Warmer in Winter and Cooler in Summer with Cellulose
Location: Albany, OR
This homeowner met us at our booth at the Oregon State Fair and scheduled an appointment for one of our energy consultants to evaluate the home. She wanted to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
When our energy consultant investigated in the attic, he found what we find at many homes—an inadequately insulated attic space using outdated fiberglass.
The first step our expert insulation crew did was to remove the old fiberglass and wood shavings in the attic. This allowed our crew to then seal the areas with air leakage. They then blew in TruSoft™ cellulose insulation to the higher recommended R-60 level. This puts a “blanket” in her attic to help make her home more comfortable to live in year-round. The cellulose also deters critters from nesting in the attic.
