Mrs. Hanley had an attic that wasn't enough insulated. There were less than 10 in. of cellulose fibers in her attic which was equivalent to an R-38 value. The air circulation was almost non-existent which made the attic very humid.
Remove the cellulose, seal air leaks on the attic floor such as seams and holes with our polyurethane foam, add ventilation mats to improve air circulation, and then blow a little over 16" of cellulose fibers.
The problem: When we've inspected this attic. Jerry our home comfort specialist found that this attic has not enough fiberglass and they were quite a bit of condensation on the ceiling roof. The client has noticed this, too, and wanted to change this factor.
The solution: To resolve this problem, we have removed all the old fiberglass and seal off all the leaking cracks with our expendable foam named Zypfoam. This helps reduces by a lot the risk of air leaking. After, we blew 16 inches of our TruSoft cellulose to achieve R60 of value.
Every winter Mrs. Cherbina had problems with ice dams on the roof of her house. The cause of this problem is the lack of insulation in the attic.
We removed the old insulation which was made from fiberglass, in order to plug any air leaks on the attic floor with our expanded foam, added baffles in the soffits and then blown a little over 16 '' from our cellulose fiber insulation to achieve an R-60 value.
Attic insulation is an important step in solving problems of home comfort, health and wasted energy (and money). This client contacted us because the temperatures in the different rooms fluctuated a lot. In addition, the old insulation became dirty and unhealthy and accumulated dust, dirt and other unwanted material.
To solve this problem, our team began by removing all the old insulation. Then we sealed all the places such as gaps, wiring holes, hunts and the top of the walls to block any air leaks. It was also necessary to encapsulate the ducts with our Tight 'n True high R-value spray foam system. Finally, we insulate the entire space with TruSoft insufflated cellulose. All these products allow the attic to be completely insulated by blocking all air leaks and controlling the energy released in your home.
Ms. Doucet contacted Système Econergie, because she had problems with ice dams on her roof in winter. This is due to the poor insulation of the attic and unclogged air leaks.
To solve this problem, we removed our customer’s old insulation to seal all air leaks (seal joints, holes etc) with our expanded foam. And then we insulated the access hatch with our SilverGlo to finally blow just over 16”of cellulose fiber insulation all over the attic floor.
