To help make this Vancouver, WA home more comfortable and energy efficient, sealing and insulating was needed in the attic. It was at an R-30 level, yet code for our area is now R-49, and R-60 is highly suggested.
To make this higher insulation level perform at its best, first the old insulation was removed. This allowed our crew access to seal where there were air leaks. Six lights were covered with can light covers; light fixtures leak a lot of conditioned air from inside the house into the attic.
The crew then blew in to the higher R-60 level TruSoft™ cellulose insulation. It is make of newsprint and treated with borate so critters do not like to use it as nesting material. The final step was to air seal and insulate the scuttle cover to the attic. All of these steps together have made for a much more comfortable home to live in!
This couple bought this Forest Grove, OR house recently and had all the fiberglass insulation in the attic removed. They were ready for a different contractor to re-insulate it.
Our insulation team started by air sealing the attic. This seals the holes and gaps between walls and framing that are notorious places for air to leak from inside the warm home to inside a cold attic. The then blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to the R-49 level. Both of these solutions together instantly made a difference in their comfort inside their new home.
The owners of this west Eugene, OR home built in 1951 were working on a remodel and hired our company to insulate the attic. The BEFORE photo shows how there was hardly any insulation. After our crew removed the old stuff, they air sealed the leaky areas and then blew in cellulose to the R-49 code level (AFTER photo).
