The Department of Energy recommends an R-38 value of fiberglass insulation for attics in our area. Without these proper standards of insulation, hot or cold air (depending on the season) moves through the roof and then into your living area. Fiberglass Insulation traps the hot or cold air in the attic so that your living area stays at a consistent, comfortable temperature year round. Adding fiberglass blown insulation is the easiest and most cost effective way to save money on your energy bills. Other benefits of fiberglass insulation are increased comfort of living area, extended life of your HVAC unit, noise control, condensation control, and energy conservation.
Hot air rises and cool air falls, therefore, this continuous motion causes a home/living area that does not have the right insulation to become uncomfortable because warm places become cooler and vice versa. During the winter months, heated air flows into the garage, basement or attic. The attic is where most of the heat is lost during the winter months; however, ensuring adequate levels of fiberglass insulation will prevent this heat loss.
Fiberglass insulation, spray foam insulation, and proper ventilation help to keep the home temperature uniform; saving you money by reducing your energy consumption and also providing a more comfortable atmosphere in your living area. Additional benefits include noise reduction and an increase in home value.
The high prices of electricity, gas and oil, as well as heating and cooling are costing the average home owner a bundle these days. New and older homes alike can benefit greatly from the addition of fiberglass insulation. As time passes insulation gradually becomes compacted and becomes less efficient. Therefore, we suggest that you have one of our professionals visit your home to recommend minor enhancements to your insulation, which will positively impact your energy usage and increase the value of your home.

Mr. Lucas was so helpful and pleasant to work with. He did an outstanding, neat job of installing insulation in our attic and under the floor of the house. He even offered to move a heavy hope chest out of our attic that my husband and I could not get down ourselves,and we truly appreciated that! I would not hesitate to use his services again and have already recommended him to a friend that need some insulation work.Joyce B., Columbia, SC
