Why Seal and Insulate?
If your home isn’t as warm as it should be in the winter or as cool as it should be in the summer, now may be the perfect time to address your home energy efficiency by turning your tax return into energy savings and financial savings. Homeowners can save about 10% of their total energy bills by sealing air leaks first, followed by adding insulation. Seal air leaks using caulk, spray foam, or weather stripping. Weatherizing your home this way is one of the most cost effective ways to improve energy efficiency and comfort. For a limited time, Modern Xterior is offering low cost attic and wall insulation options for Michigan homeowners. You can save $500 on your project of 1,000 sq ft or more (Expires 3/31/2017).
Save Energy and Money.
Air that leaks through your home’s envelope − the outer walls, windows, doors, and other openings − wastes a lot of energy and increases your utility costs. A well-sealed envelope, coupled with the right amount of insulation, can make a real difference on your utility bills.
Sealing leaks and adding insulation can improve the overall comfort of your home and help to fix many of these common problems:
- Reduced noise from outside
- Less pollen, dust and insects (or pests) entering your home
- Better humidity control
- Lower chance for ice dams on the roof/eves in snowy climates
Most Homes Will Benefit.
Most homes in the United States don’t have enough insulation and have significant air leaks. In fact, if you added up all the leaks, holes and gaps in a typical home’s envelope, it would be the equivalent of having a window open every day of the year!
Attic Insulation – The Best Investment You Could Ever Make
Modern Xterior Improvement is an experienced Michigan Insulation Contractor that can help you maximize your energy savings. We use only the BEST blown in cellulose insulation for open access attics and attic walls.
Wall Insulation – Open or Closed
For closed wall insulation we use tripolymer injection foam.
If your walls could talk, they’d tell you that there is a substantial amount of heating or cooling inefficiency in homes today due to improperly-insulated walls. Without the appropriate level of insulation, a home can feel chilly in the winter and too warm in the summer. Adjusting the thermostat just sends your utility bills skyrocketing. Properly-insulated walls in your house will not only increase comfort in every room of your home, but will also help you save on heating and cooling costs. Savings vary. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.
Tripolymer is the one of the safest, most long-lasting and eco-friendly wall insulation products available.
