Phil’s Insulation Project in Ankeny, Iowa
Cold Temperatures, Colder Home
With the cold temperatures setting in, Phil was struggling to keep his Ankeny, Iowa home warm. Constantly turning up his thermostat, he knew something wasn’t right. He needed a solution ASAP with the cold temperatures not changing anytime soon so he reached out to us at Home Solutions of Iowa for help.
Cause of Cold Temperatures
Each region has an R-value the home should be insulated with. The higher the R-value the more resistant the material is to heat transfer for any given thickness. The more resistant, the longer it takes for heat to flow out of the room through the material, and as a result, less energy is required to keep a room at a given temperature.
Minimizing Cold Temperatures With Our Solutions
Once we got up in Phil’s attic, we noticed many issues off the bat. Not only did we notice the insulation was not at the correct R-Value it needed to be but frost was building up in his attic. Attic Frost can cause serious damage to the attic if not taken care of. To provide Phil with the best home solution, we Air Sealed the cracks, joints, and other openings in the attic. Air Sealing provides full coverage eliminating leaks and makes your home more comfortable and efficient. After Air Sealing, we blew in Cellulose Insulation. It is made from recycled materials that are ground into a fluffy, lightweight material. Cellulose provides a higher R-Value than traditional fiberglass. Phil’s Ankeny home is fully insulated with no worries about heat loss.
