Attic Insulation and AirSealing in Warwick, RI-a happy homeowner

During this typical attic insulation and airsealing job in Warwick our technicians rise to the occasion once again. From the pictures you can see how spray foam is used to seal top wall plates and other penetrations, even in areas that are difficult to access. Then ventilation chutes are placed in the eaves allowing air from the soffit vents outside to easily find its way into the attic space. This step is crucial to an effective Weatherization install.

Typical of many attics is the presence of ductwork. Often the seal between the ductwork and the finished space below is leaky. To cure this, spray foam, when carefully installed around loose fitting vents is very effective. Because it is considered a heat source, red, heat resistant caulk is used around the bath fan / light unit.

Notice in the final two attic pictures how level and complete the installed attic insulation (cellulose) appears.The insulation effectively becomes a twelve inch deep blanket that completely prevents heat or air-conditioning loss from the finished space below. Lastly cardboard measuring sticks are spaced evenly in the attic to ensure proper insulation depth throughout.

Now this happy homeowner can look forward to many years of energy savings and increased comfort both during the winter and summer.
