You Have Questions?

We Have Answers

How do I tell if I need more insulation?
Will more insulation help my situation?

Some common signs that you need more insulation are:

  • a large temperature difference between your upper and lower floor
  • your AC/heater can’t keep up with the temperature
  • one area of your house is especially hot/cold
  • frost/snow on your roof melts before your neighbors
  • your energy bills are higher than expected
What type of insulation do you install?

We only install loosefill and batt fiberglass insulation – the most cost-effective, longest lasting type of insulation that can be installed in existing homes.

Is fiberglass or cellulose insulation better?

This is a long-standing debate in the insulation industry that takes a lot more than a couple of lines to fully explain (you can watch a 20 minute video we made on the topic here), but the short answer is that modern fiberglass insulation is a much better choice than cellulose.

My floors aren’t insulated – should they be?

Short answer: it depends. In our climate in the Boise area floors are typically a smaller source of energy loss in your home than your attic and walls. If your floors feel especially cold in the winter then insulation will certainly keep them warmer, but don’t expect it to make a huge difference in your annual energy bills.

Do you install spray foam insulation?

We do not install spray foam insulation because we have not found it to be especially cost-effective when installed in existing homes.

Do you work on new construction?

We do not currently work on any new construction projects.

Should my attic fan have a temperature switch installed?

We typically recommend against installing a temperature switch on attic fans in the Southern Idaho climate because adequate attic ventilation is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer. The purpose of all attic ventilation, whether active or passive, is to make your attic airspace as connected as possible with the outdoors while still protecting it from rain and snow. During the summer the purpose of this is clear – keep the attic temperature and humidity as close to the outdoors as possible so that your insulation isn’t overwhelmed by excessive attic heat or moisture (under-ventilated attics often reach temperatures above 160F on sunny summer days). During the winter, this attic-outdoor connection serves the exact same purpose – reducing the build-up of humidity that escapes from your living space and bringing down the attic temperature to prevent ice damming, which can do serious damage to even a brand new roof.
