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.
During winter, ice dams and huge icicles formed on the roof of Mrs. Forget's house. A lack of insulation in the attic was the cause of this problem. Even though Mrs. Forget had re-insulated her attic a few years ago, but the same problem had reappeared.
We removed the fiberglass insulation that was in the attic to seal all air leaks (joints and holes) with expanded foam. Subsequently, we added deflectors to allow better ventilation of the attic. Finally, we blew a little more than 16'' of cellulose fibers to reach an R-60 value.
The problem: This client from Pointe-Claire in Montréal, had a problem with his house. He found his rooms upstairs not comfortable. They were hot during the summer, even with the air climatization on and during the winter his rooms were not comfortable as he wanted them to be.
The solution: We replace the old isolation with a brand new one. We use blown cellulose for those types of projects. We blow over 16 inches to achieve R60 of value.
The problem :
The client wanted to change her attic insulation because it was old and it wasn't insulated properly. And when we were doing our inspection, we found many cracks that leaked air from the attic.
The solution :
With the help of our certified attic insulation specialist, we established a plan and found a solution for the client's needs.
We started by removing all the old isolation. We then fixed all the cracks with our Zyp foam in order to air seal which is imperative to do before any insulation work. We then insulated all the attic with our cellulose fiber to get an R60 insulation value.
Now, this client has a better isolated attic with a much higher energy efficiency, which will help them save money and enjoy a more comfortable home.
Mr. Tang wanted to re-insulate his attic because he had problems with ice damming on his roof in winter. In addition, he felt drafts of cool air in the rooms upstairs. This was due to poor insulation in his attic.
Our solution to our client's problem was to first remove the old fiberglass insulation in order to seal all the air leaks that were present on the attic surface (joints, holes, etc.). Then we installed vents on each end of the attic to finally blow out just over 16” of cellulose fibers.
Mr. Omar had several problems with his attic:
- Lack of insulation
- Insulation in the soffits prevents air circulation in the attic
- Ice dam on the roof in winter
- Condensation on the ceiling on the upper floor.
Remove the wool to seal all air leaks on the attic floor such as joints, holes, and recessed. Install vents throughout the soffits to allow airflow into the attic. Insulate the chimney and then blow out just over 16” of cellulose fiber to achieve an R-60 value.
The attic of Mr Gaudio's house was very poorly insulated. It had about 6 inches of fiberglass as insulation, which is far from sufficient in Quebec. Because of this, he felt some very cold breezes in winter, especially in the rooms of the house and he had noticed that heating costs were getting very high.
We removed or customer's old insulation to properly seal any air leaks on the attic floor. Subsequently, we added our SilverGlo insulation boards on some walls of the attic to finally blow 16 '' of cellulose fibers.
Ms. Smith contacted Systèmes Éconergie because she had problems with ice dams on her roof in winter. This very common problem is due to poor attic insulation and the presence of air leaks.
We removed the old wool insulation in order to seal the air leaks such as joints, holes and others. Then, we installed vents on each side of the attic to allow additional ventilation in the attic and prevent air from touching the insulation. Eventually, we blew just over 16” of cellulose fibers to achieve an R-60 value.
The rooms in Mr. Donovan's house were uncomfortable. They were often either too hot or too cold. He also had too high heating and cooling costs. These problems are due to poor attic insulation and as a matter of fact, he only had 8 ‘’ of blown wool in his attic.
To improve the comfort of our client's home as well as reduce their energy costs, we removed the old fiberglass insulation to seal all air leaks on the attic floor, insulated the air ducts to avoid losses, and blew just over 16’’ of cellulose fibers.
