Air Leakage in Boone
Gary’s home in Boone, IA was having issues staying warm. A large portion of heat was escaping through the attic, upon inspection there was no air sealing, allowing air leakage from the home and the current fiberglass batt insulation had gaps in-between the rolls and was not providing a high enough R-value.
Air Seal & Blown-In Cellulose Insulation
We air sealed Gary’s Boone, Iowa attic to eliminate any air leakage from the home. We then insulated with blown-in cellulose; cellulose forms a much denser and more effective insulation layer than fiberglass and is treated with a nontoxic borate solution that gives the material a Class 1 fire safety rating. It is also resistant to mold and insects.
