Colorado Attic Insulation
Efficiency Revolution installs cellulose and fiberglass insulation in Colorado homes to help keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Missing or inadequate insulation is one of the biggest reasons for energy loss in most Colorado homes. Many Denver homes have only a few inches of attic insulation.
How much attic insulation is needed in Colorado? R 49 to R 60 attic insulation levels are recommended in Colorado. Insulation levels are measured as “R values.” The higher the R value number, the better the insulation level. Insulation types vary in their performance. Loose blown cellulose yields a higher R value than fiberglass for the same thickness. We prefer to use Green Fiber cellulose because research has shown that cellulose performs better during the coldest parts of winter and hottest parts of summer, and because it’s about 85% recycled newspaper. If you prefer fiberglass we can do that too.
In addition to improving comfort, adding more insulation to your Colorado home will help lower heating and cooling bills and improve your home’s resale value.
Crawlspaces and Basements
The living space above many Colorado crawlspaces is cold because the crawlspaces are poorly insulated if at all. We can fix that problem and make your house warmer in the winter. See the photos below for an example of the work we typically do on crawlspaces.
Above: Before and after insulating and adding soil moisture barrier to the crawlspace. Notice the bare dirt, which was becoming airborne and getting into the leaky duct system. We installed a sealed soil moisture barrier and insulated the walls. Now the house is clean and warm, and the homeowners are very happy!
