Insulation is hands-down the most important home energy upgrade a homeowner can make. Paired with air sealing efforts to minimize air leakage, it can keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, while reducing energy bills, increasing your home's all-around comfort, and minimizing your home's environmental impact.
What few homeowners realize is that a large percentage of insulated homes can still benefit from an insulation upgrade. The fiberglass batts that are typically used in new construction are prone to sloppy insulation, decreasing their effectiveness; and insulation can also settle or shift over time, creating air gaps and decreasing the overall effectiveness of the insulation.
At AE³Q, we use our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to identify where your home may be missing insulation, or where it may have settled over time, in order to target those areas that could most benefit from an upgrade. Attic insulation upgrades are typically a good investment for most homes, and our wall insulation method is a surprisingly non-intrusive, low-cost way to improve your home's building envelope and energy efficiency.
