50% Air Leakage Reduction? 

Yes, 50% air leakage reduction.  Insulating is only 1/2 the battle.  If you don’t air seal a home in the process of insulating, then you’re missing a prime opportunity to lock in heat that literally flows out of your home. 

Our Blower Door can quantify the air leakage in your home.  On a recent job we air sealed and insulated the attic with cellulose, and injected Tripolymer foam into the walls using our normal process.  We performed a “test out” blower door test before leaving and were pleased (but not too surprised) with our results.

A few weeks later an Xcel Auditor stopped by to make sure our work met their rebate program’s standards.  We not only met it, we exceeded their standards, achieving a 50% air leakage reduction and a special “attaboy” and ”thank you and keep up the great work” commendation from Xcel and Lightly Treading.

Does Injection Foam Work?  Here’s what these Happy Customers had to say:

“The insulation has made a huge difference in temp rise during the afternoon, and the noise suppression is a nice side effect, too.  The AC compressor is just outside our room and it is barely audible now, where before it was pretty distracting.” Casey in Denver

New Construction – Blow in Style

 Check out these pictures of a recent new construction project up in the mountains.  We created an excellent shell around the house with R-22 net and blow in the 2×6 exterior walls.  Then we silenced the floors with dense pack cellulose (R40+) over garage and 1st floor for thermal and acoustical insulation.  We then sealed off the Master Suite and living/guest areas with acoustical walls to dampen sound.  Once the drywall was in we blew R60+ in the attic to create a toasty mountain retreat.
