Cellulose Insulation has been in use for hundreds of years in one form or another. Thomas Jefferson’s home (Monticello) was insulated with a type of cellulose. Now, we don’t pretend to be as smart as Thomas Jefferson, but we do have better products available to us. In fact, today’s denser cellulose insulation, its manufacturing process and the installation methods employed actually increases the fire-resistant properties. The techs at Energy Geeks use only the best quality, longest-lasting cellulose insulation, produced from recycled materials. Our service technicians will gladly provide you with any information you need and answer any questions you may have.

Home Energy Audits
Home Energy Audits are the key to creating a smart weatherization strategy and a thermally efficient home. We will conduct an energy audit, or review your existing one to insure that it was thoroughly and properly conducted, and then meticulously interpret the findings so as to create the best, smartest weatherization solution for your home.
Blower Door Testing
You may think that a blower door test consists of putting your hand down to the bottom and up to the top of door to see if you can feel any air coming in. Maybe that’s how other people would do it, but not the techs at Energy Geeks. A true blower door test is a comprehensive process to physically locate air leakage in the building envelope that is your home. We utilize a calibrated, variable-speed fan to induce a range of air-flows sufficient to pressurize and depressurize your home. By doing this, and with the use of a pressure monitoring instrument called a manometer, the we will locate where air is leaking out of your home, measure the rate of flow (and therefore your resulting energy loss) and recommend the best, smartest weatherization strategy for your home.
Infrared Heat Loss Analysis
The techs at Energy Geeks love to use their infrared thermographic cameras. It allows them to conduct a non-invasive analysis and create a real-time picture of your home and quickly identify hot and cold spots, but more importantly, we can see where energy leaks are and plug them so your energy dollars stay in your home!
Other Weatherization Services
Installation of gables, soffits and roof vents are critical to creating the smart, protective, “sealed” envelope that will ensure maximum energy savings.
The techs at Energy Geeks also installs bathroom fans, which provide important protection against excessive moisture accumulation and the problems this can cause. (Master Electrician License# A3782)
