Alternative Weatherization offers the following insulation contractor services in Massachusetts:
Our professional home insulators use a blower door test to help determine your home’s air density. This is the most accurate method we use to find if there is an overuse of energy due to air leakage.
There are some important steps to be prepared for before a blower door test can be performed.
- Close all windows and open all interior doors
- Turn down all thermostats
- Cover ashes in wood stoves and fireplaces with damp newspapers
- Shut fireplace dampers and doors, and wood stove air intakes
Many air leaks and drafts are easy to find because they are easy to feel, like those around windows and doors. But holes hidden in attics, basements and crawlspaces are usually bigger problems. Let Alternative Weatherization’s professional home insulators seal these leaks with proper sealing methods. This will have a great impact on improving your comfort and reducing utility bills.
Cellulose insulation is a safe approach in protecting your home and family from weather conditions we face. Cellulose insulation is non-flammable and helps to hinder the spread of fire be 57%. This type of insulation reduces outside noise, thus it is an ideal investment to those who live near busy roads or airports. Cellulose insulation is non-toxic and safe, insect and rodent resistant and impervious to mold and mildew.
Wall insulation has to be drilled in the walls, since it cannot be installed by the attic or underneath the property. With exterior wall drilling, it is important to accurately select the correct areas to be drilled. Once this is achieved, the walls are inserted with cellulose insulation until thoroughly packed. Our insulation contractors will then plug the hole with a styrofoam plug and then reattach the existing siding.
There are times when Exterior Drilling may not be possible. In this situation, Alternative Weatherization will drill holes from the interior. Once the holes are filled, the holes are patched using spackle or joint compound.
