Looking to save on your home cooling costs this summer?  Improve your home’s energy-efficiency by fixing these common attic problems!

Simple Attic Fixes:

  • Seal Any Gaps – Air leaks can let in warm, humid air during the summer.  This means moisture problems, insulation damage and high air conditioning bills.  Sealing air gaps is an important part of keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and preventing energy loss.
  • Add Insulation – Many homes lack attic insulation!  However, un-insulated walls and ceilings make it harder for your air conditioning system to keep your home cool in the summer.  This means that you system will be running longer and using more energy.  Attic insulation helps prevent these issues by keeping cool, conditioned air indoors and preventing heat gain.
  • Improve Ventilation – Proper attic ventilation will help promote a healthy living space by limiting moisture buildup – especially on humid summer days.  Homeowners should address any attic ventilation issues in order to improve their home energy efficiency.  This can include adding duct work or installing new roofing materials.

Don't Worry & Don't Hesitate
"I am about a few weeks out of my exterior wall insulation, attic spray foam and garage insulation. I feel the big difference in my home. My home is warmer and holds the heat. Tom was very straight forward and upfront. He was my point person for the three day project. He was exceptional. From the initial quote to project completion. After the completion of the insulation, I experienced a strong and significant spray foam smell coming through my bathroom AC flex duct. Tom asked Mike, his operation manager, to come out and check it out the next day. There turn out to be a large hole in my duct. And he fixed it without hesitation. Plus he accidentally broke a spong holder and gave me money for it. I was very please to report the smell instantly disappeared. Also the back office Lindsay and Jeanine who helped me with the the paperwork was phenomenal. Very impressed with the efficiency and diligence. Overall, cannot recommend enough. Don't worry and don't hesitate."

"I used Good Life Energy Savers. I found them to be very professional. I had insulation blown into the attic and foam sealant in the basement."
