"Customer just moved in and wasn't comfortable in the kitchen and bedroom. Her air conditioning bills were also very high. We removed the old insulation, sealed the house, created a storage deck, and added cellulose insulation. She could feel the difference immediately and referred us to her mother! "
Our customer's third floor was way too hot in the summer due to their air conditioning ductwork being exposed to those high attic temperatures.
To solve their sweaty strife, our team insulated the underside of their roof with a combination of high performance 2-inch foam board and fiberglass batts which lowered the attic air temperature dramatically.
These homeowners were never comfortable upstairs. Their home was built in the 1950's and had the original insulation which was only 2-in thick and had been removed in spots. The summer sun heated the attic to 120 degrees and the poor insulation didn't keep that heat from going right through the second floor ceiling.
The first measure we installed was attic air sealing. The insulation was moved and all wall tops and penetrations around wires and pipes were sealed with expanding spray foam. This keeps the conditioned air in the home from leaking into the attic. Next, we added 16-inches of blown in cellulose insulation. The R-value of the insulation increased from R-7 to R-51 which means 67% less heat is transferred through the ceiling!
The home is now comfortable all year and our clients are glad to refer us to family and friends.
Our clients were unhappy with their home. The temperature difference between the first and second floors was dramatic - over 10 degrees warmer upstairs on a hot summer day. Their utility bills were also very high. We replaced the old, inefficient furnace, air conditioner, and water heater to lower the energy bills. The variable speed Amana heating and air conditioning system pushed more cold air to the second floor while consuming a lot less energy. But to make the dramatic improvement in comfort they sought, we also had to seal the attic and properly insulate it.
We moved the old insulation then sealed all gaps in the framing, drywall and around plumbing and electrical penetrations with spray foam. The old insulation was placed flat on the ceiling (it had been bunched up), and an additional 12-in of cellulose insulation was blown in on top.
The result was a much tighter house that didn't leak as much cool conditioned air into the attic and insulation that reduced the heat transferred from the attic into the second floor by 67%! The second floor is now just as comfortable as the first floor when it's sunny and 95-degrees outside.
