Icicles Identification: Heat Loss in Attic
We went out to Ann’s home and did a Heat Map Analysis to show her where heat was escaping from her home. This gave Ann the perfect visual to where the heat loss was in her home. After the Heat Map Analysis, we got up in Ann’s attic to determine what insulation was needed and where the leaks were.
Icicles Issues Solution
Icicles Solution= Home Comfort Plan
We air-sealed various parts of her attic to eliminate any leaking of heat. After air sealing the cracks and holes in her home, we used spray foam insulation to seals air ducts for maximized energy efficiency. To accompany the thick blanket of cellulose we installed rigid foam insulation in the attic joists. Our rigid foam insulation doesn’t absorb moisture or attract mold and provides an excellent thermal barrier to the cold winters and hot summers in Waukee, IA. Ann’s home is now fully insulated and won’t have to worry about any serious damage to her home from ice damming and has the most efficient home on the block.
