Are you worried about pests in your home? Crawl spaces and attics make inviting homes for rodents, such as bats, mice, and rats, as well as many other pests. Unfortunately, these pests can make homeowners suffer. Rodents contaminate food and can make people sick. They leave urine and fecal droppings that contain germs and cause allergic reactions in some people. Even worse, rodents can cause house fires by gnawing on wires.
One way to reduce the number of pests to be found in your home is by investing in insulation and air sealing in spaces like your crawl space or attic. Here at Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver, we install high-quality insulation that can help regulate your home's temperature while keeping rodents at bay.

Both crawl spaces and attics shelter different kinds of pests from the elements while giving them potential food sources. And, if you don't frequently visit these spaces - which many homeowners don't - pests and rodents can live virtually unperturbed.
Attics often make great homes for bats, while rats and mice enjoy the warmth and dampness found in crawl spaces. Because none of these animals are ideal houseguests, it's important to know how you can prevent them from affecting your life - and installing insulation is one of those ways!
Air sealing and insulating rooms like your attic or crawl space will remove the majority of entry points for bats, rats, and other rodents. Because these pests are capable of squeezing into very small spaces, oftentimes, air leaks are also big enough to allow rodents into your home. And if your home is lacking in insulation, this provides even more places for rodents to get into your home and make it their own home too.
If you already have an extensive rodent problem, the first step should be to call an exterminator. But, after the exterminator does his job, air sealing your home and installing insulation is a good insurance method to make sure that pests can't re-enter.
The primary reason to install insulation is, of course, to make your home a more comfortable and energy efficient space. But the added bonus of passive pest prevention when your home is properly insulated and air sealed is nothing to laugh about! If you're ready to insulate your home and enjoy all of the benefits that this process has to offer, Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver is here to help.
