Having the correct amount of insulation in your attic and walls can make your home more pleasant all year long. Increased energy efficiency could also help you save money on energy expenses.
Insulation is often only as good as its weakest part. Good insulation design keeps interior temperatures consistent throughout your home. Proper insulation allows the house to maintain the optimal indoor temperature and enviroment. We can figure out those cold spots in your home and get them right.
Poorly insulated homes invariably have high energy bills. We specialize in reducing those PG&E and SMUD bills for the long term. Heating and cooling systems are not supposed to run constantly. If the HVAC is running nonstop, you may have an insulation problem.
Tired of hearing your neighbors or the street like you are sharing interior walls? A well insulated home also helps keep exterior noise such as heavy traffic from disrupting your household. In addition, air sealing can help prevent the outside air from getting into your home.
A lot of our customers contact us about insulation and when we ask what they currently have they can only say not enough. You can feel when your home is lacking proper insulation, since you will frequently have hot or cold walls, ceilings, and floors. Old uninsulated walls can be addressed, along with uninsulated or poorly insulated subfloors.
Well-insulated attics keep heat out in the hot summer and helps stop it from escaping through the roof during winter. Attic insulation also helps keep unwanted pests from accessing the home interior. You can assess your existing insulation to learn if you have an adequate amount in your attic. If it’s lower than 7” deep, your home lacks enough insulation. In the greater Sacramento region, 12-14” deep is recommended. We have multiple methods of bringing your attic up to modern standards.
Leaky or poorly insulated air ducts can be the source of all your issues on those extreme temperatute days. Over time air duct insulation also keeps utility costs down, and helps prevent the distribution of dust and other unwanted attic particulates throughout the home. Poorly sealed ductwork also provides one of the most common ways for rodent and insect pests to gain access to the home interior. We have solutions for hard sheet metal and flexible duct.
Improperly planned cathedral ceiling insulation can lead to a lot of problems. In addition, California Title 24 requirements may require you to reconsider your options. We can help you keep your cathedral ceilings closer to room temperature with the right insulating materials. Ventilation must also be considered with most catherdral ceilings.
Insulating exterior walls helps keep interior walls closer to room temperature. It also keeps cool air from escaping when outdoor temperatures are high. Many homeowners see substantial utility bill savings when exterior insulation is installed. Areas to consider include walls between living spaces and garages, foundation walls in heated basements, and foundation walls situated above ground level. We can do both new construction and retrofit with existing walls.
An insulated crawlspace or floor over garage can really helps keep the chill off your household flooring. We will make sure any source of air leakage is sealed, which holds in conditioned air but also protects you from airborne compounds. Installing an air barrier can also prevent too much cold air from overwhelming subfloor insulation and help with moisture and mold.
We mainly install two varieties of insulation - loose fill and batt. Loose fill insulation is blown in through special machinery, while batt insulation is rolls that can be trimmed to fit. Insulating material can contain fiberglass, cellulose, mineral wool and cotton. Insulation is ranked for its resistance to heat flow. This is also known as the R-value. Certain levels are recommended based on where you live. Bright Home Energy Services can help you figure out what type of insulation is best for your home’s needs. Our insulation installers deliver a full range of quality insulation services backed by industry leading warranties.
