The attic insulation of Mrs. Negret's house was insufficient. There was less than 10” of fiberglass mat in some places. This caused ice dams on her roof in winter and made her house uncomfortable.
We have sealed all air leaks such as joints, electrical wire holes. Then, we isolated the recessed lights by adding a box to each of them and sealing around the box. We insulated the access hatch with SilverGlo and finally blew out just over 16” of cellulose fibers.

Re-insulate the attic and make it more airtight.

Mr. Simard contacted Systèmes Éconergie to properly insulate his attic. He had very high energy costs, as well as problems with an ice dam on the roof of his house in winter. Both of these problems are caused by the lack of insulation in his attic.
In order to solve Mr. Simard's problem, we removed the old fiberglass insulation, to seal all the air leaks in the attic (joints, ducts, etc.) and we blew a little more than 16’’ of cellulose fibers. With this solution, we achieve an R-61 value!
