WEATHERIZING YOUR HOME
Why Worry About Insulation?
Up to 90% of all heat loss of a building can be eliminated or significantly reduced through the effective use of insulation. Fortunatley, having the proper amount of insulation installed is the easiest, quickest and the most cost effective to alleviate these issues.
Do you feel cold in your bedroom? Do you feel drafts while sitting on your couch? Are your walls cold to the touch?
Then your home needs wall insulation!
Side wall insulation is not only good for reducing your energy bills, but it will also make you more comfortable in your home. Side wall insulation is great for sound reduction as well as eliminating drafts.
The Process is Simple
Remove siding and drill hole
The siding is removed and a hole is drilled. All types of siding can be removed, vinyl, aluminum, shingles clapboards and even asbestos! The hole is then plumbogged and felt with wires to find any hidden block or brace that could occur in the houses structure. The worker then measures to the next block or stud and makes an appropriate hole.
The insulation is blown in at such high pressure that it is firmly packed within the wall cavity. Insulation can be blown in using the multiple hole technique or the fill tube method.
A foam plug is placed in the hole to prevents any water from entering the wall cavity.
Put original siding back
Once sealed the original siding can put back. Galvanized finish nails are used for shingles and clapboards which provide great holding power without tarnishing. JM NorthEast Energy can reinsulate through almost every type of siding (I.E. Brick cannot be done from the outside)
The wall is now water tight and fully insulated
