AttiCat – Fiberglas Insulation
We offer insulation inspections to help homeowners evaluate the energy usage and performance. Energy Star maintains that an attic that has been well insulated can help homeowners save up to 20% on their heating and cooling energy bills every year.
Our insulation inspection involves checking the current insulation levels in your attic. We will immediately let you know whether or not you are losing money by having inefficient insulation. A home that is under insulated will lose up to 40% of the air-conditioned air through the attic, which can cost you a lot of money.
Energy costs have been steadily rising, which means that insulation is becoming very important to homeowners and business owners as time goes on. Whether you are trying to keep your home warm or trying to cool it down, maximizing your home’s R-values can pay for itself over and over throughout the lifetime of your home or building.
Young Construction has formed a partnership with the energy efficiency experts at Owens Corning. This partnership provides our customers with a unique product known as AttiCat. We want to ensure that our customers are able to maximize the opportunities available to them so that they can save on the increasing costs of energy.
Is your attic costing you money?
If your attic floor is insulated, but the beams (joists) are still visible, you probably don’t have enough insulation. Even if you can’t see your beam, there is still no guarantee that you have the proper amount of insulation.
Do you have enough insulation? To maximize your energy efficiency, we recommend an insulation R-value of 60 for attic floors. This is about 18 inches of insulation.
Adding insulation to your attic is simple and easy with Young Construction’s Owens Corning Expanding Blown-In PINK Fiberglas™ Insulation breaks up the fiberglass making if fluffy. This adds millions of the tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power. The insulation is further conditioned throughout the length of the hose attached to the blowing machine. As it makes its way up to your attic, additional air pockets are added, increasing its insulating power even more. Since Fiberglas™ insulation will not settle it will hold its energy saving, R-value over time.
The Fiberglas™ insulation completely releases and expands inside our blowing machine, leaving no mess for you to clean up.
We offer a series of cellulose insulation services, such as safe cellulose insulation, cellulose blown insulation, cellulose attic insulation, and cellulose fiberglass insulation. Home cellulose insulation has become ever popular as homeowners realize the advantages it has because of its dense nature: Namely, how cellulose potentially holds out much longer during a fire. Homeowners have also been attracted to how cellulose residential insulation consists largely of plant and organic materials. When you insulate with cellulose, you are choosing a proven alternative to straight fiberglass insulation.
It’s tricky to insulate finished walls because it’s more difficult to get insulation inside the wall, in the cavities between studs. Walls are easy to insulate when the studs are still visible, before wallboard or other finished wall material is installed.
We access wall cavities from the exterior by removing your shingles or siding and drilling holes in the areas where the insulation will be installed. Once we have access, we will blow dense packed insulation into the wall, continuously adjusting the hose to ensure that the space is completely filled with insulation.
Once this process is completed, we will seal the holes to ensure they are completely airtight and re-install your siding or shingles. By completely filling the wall cavity with dense-packed cellulose, we can ensure that your home won’t experience air leaks that waste energy and cause uncomfortable temperatures.
Our complete home energy audit will help you determine what the best energy improvements are for your home. By carefully evaluating the entire home, we can provide you with a complete list of solutions for your specific problems.
