Insulation services at Energeyes cover more than just R-values and fiberglass. Our home performance expertise shows that proper insulation is important is to keeping your home comfortable. We understand what many insulation contractors miss completely—controlling air leakage and radiant heat build-up ensures your home’s insulation performs the way it should. We rely on our building science expertise to make sure your home’s insulation has the best chance for effective protection.
Air Sealing Ensures Insulation Effectiveness
Today’s homes are better sealed from the outside elements than ever before and there’s some building science behind that. Your leaky home may be losing as much as 20% of its heating and cooling through tiny leaks and gaps. A good example is a sweater that works, until a breeze picks up. Putting on a windbreaker over the sweater will keep you warm and toasty. Air sealing helps your home’s insulation perform better in the same way.
Insulation Keeps Your Home Comfortable Year-round
In our area, we rely on air conditioning much more than heating for comfort. Insulation does the heavy lifting for both AC and heat, so it’s important that your energy efficient home has the right insulation. If your current insulation has become damaged or compacted, we can start fresh with insulation removal, air sealing and new insulation installation.
Radiant Barriers Reflect Heat Out
Our attic spaces can really heat up in the long summer months, which is why so many Wake Forest, NC area homeowners use a radiant barrier to reflect heat back out through the roof. This reflective material, which is applied to the underside of the roof structure helps attic insulation work more effectively by reducing the radiant energy from the sun.
Duct Sealing Enhances Performance & Indoor Air Quality
The final piece of your home’s heating and cooling system is the ductwork that moves conditioned air from the furnace or central air conditioner into living areas. Unsealed leaky ductwork lets conditioned air escape and unhealthy contaminants in. Our duct sealing technicians can make sure your ducts are airtight so that your home’s indoor air quality remains healthy and your energy bills remain low.
