Here are the answers to some of the questions we get asked most often about home insulation. If we haven’t answered your questions here, let us know.

The idea of insulating has been around for a while and for good reason. With all of the improvements you can make to increase the energy efficiency of your home there are few that match the impact of re-insulation from both a cost and energy savings perspective. Because insulation seems like old news, many homeowners aren’t aware of the quality re-insulation options available to them, including Enerliv’s Dense Pack Process for walls. Enerliv’s insulation processes and products enable homeowners to get big insulation value with no major renovations.
By increasing the insulation in your attic from R12 to government recommended R50 or R60 you can reduce the heat loss through your attic by 75-80%! Even newer homes can have as little as R32 or less of effective insulation depending on builder specifications. The addition of Blown Cellulose is the best attic option. It’s a natural choice that provides superior performance in the coolest temperatures.
Did you know you can re-insulate your home’s walls without needing to do a renovation? There’s no need to tear down walls or remove plaster in order to add insulation. There are several options for retrofit wall insulation and most can be completed within one day. Our Dense Pack process enables us to insulate existing wall cavities to exacting specifications. Fiberglass installed using our Dense Pack process means we provide excellent R-value, use recycled materials, reduce drafts and add significant comfort to your home. Unlike other contractors, we only install through the smallest holes to minimize any traces of the work that was done.
Basements are quite often a source of heat loss. The options for basement insulation are numerous, depending on your basement construction. We will complete any basement job by insulating leaky header areas and walls with spray polyurethane, offering excellent R-value and increasing your comfort and energy bill savings (drywall would need to be removed if in place).
Don’t forget about headers, crawl spaces and other areas where you could be losing energy and benefit from better insulation. A good insulation contractor will locate these areas for you. Spray polyurethane can be applied to effectively seal these areas and goes a long way in reducing energy loss.
We begin by filling in the bottom hole, and inject as much as possible. The technician then moves to the middle hole followed by the top hole. When the insulation reaches sufficient density it will begin to restrict the flow from the nozzle indicating to the technician that they should move to the next access hole or cavity as appropriate. Our technicians are well trained and experienced in our Dense Pack process.
