Project Description

Gary’s Insulation Project in Boone, Iowa

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.

Before

The fiberglass insulation was a mess. There were gaps between rolls and it was lacking the proper depth to achieve the desired 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 non-toxic borate solution that gives the material a Class 1 fire safety rating. It is also resistant to mold and insects.

After

Modern cellulose insulation is made completely of recycled and environmentally safe materials making it an eco-friendly option. It fills in easily around beams, pipes, wires, and other unique shapes and objects.
