Macon Pest Control: Attic Insulation

Poor attic insulation in your home can cost you hundreds of dollars every year on your heating and cooling bills. There are many benefits to insulating your attic with Northwest. We offer an energy-efficient blown-in insulation that comes with the added value of pest control. Let’s see if our attic insulation is right for you!

  • The blown-in insulation allows it to cover every corner of your attic. You will never have to worry if there are any gaps in your insulation.
  • The material is dense, which means it allows less air flow between the insulation particles, keeping the ideal air inside the home, instead of escaping outside. This can help decrease your energy costs!
  • The density also reduces outside noise, allowing your home to be a bit quieter.
  • The temperature will stay consistent throughout the day, which decreases the workload on your HVAC system.
  • Our insulation is Energy-Star rated and is considered a green product, made from all natural ingredients and recycled newspaper.
  • It’s infused with borates, a pest control agent that helps control roaches, earwigs, ants, silverfish, and other pests. The borates won’t wear off, so your attic is always protected.
  • With the help of the borates, the insulation is fire-retardant, adding another level of protection to your home.

Alabama Pest Control: Attic Insulation

The transition from winter to spring can wreak havoc on your home’s energy consumption. Living in Alabama during the early spring gives us cold mornings and hot afternoons. Changing your thermostat to keep you comfortable inside shouldn’t be a daily task. Your attic insulation should be able to properly keep your home either cool or warm depending on the outside temperature. Let’s go over the benefits of getting your home properly insulated.

Benefits to Attic Insulation:

  • Lower utility bills: You can save an average of 15 percent on your utility bills by getting better insulation in your attic.
  • Safer home structure: Insulation can help prevent gradual damage to your home caused by heat and moisture.
  • Better indoor air quality: Poor insulation can allow dust, dirt, mold, and mildew to enter your home.
  • Keep pests away: Some insulations are coated with borate, which can affect pests such as roaches, ants, and more by causing a disruption to their stomachs and can also affect their nervous systems. It isn’t harmful to pets or family.

Attic insulation creates pockets that slow heat or cool air from attempting to flow through your home. This will help with uneven temperatures throughout your home. Installing insulation will also help your HVAC system run more efficiently and will help cut down on the times you have to adjust the thermostat, allowing lower energy bills.

How Attic Insulation Benefits You in the Winter

How Attic Insulation Benefits You in the Winter

We all know that during the summer, attic insulation works as a heat reflector from the sun. But how does it work in the wintertime? If your attic isn’t well insulated, then the rising heat won’t stay inside the home, resulting in major energy loss for your home. Here are some tips when it comes to getting your attic insulated:

Removing Old Insulation

Over time attic insulation can begin to appear damaged. It could be from old age, excess moisture, or a wildlife infestation. If you think your attic’s insulation is not working like it needs to, then your best bet is to invest in replacing it. A good rule of thumb when determining it’s time to replace is noticing insulation that looks out of place, as this can cause your energy bill to spike.

Airtight Seal

Air leaks can make your insulation not as efficient as it needs to be. When insulation is installed, it’s important to ensure your attic is sealed correctly. The tiniest hole will cause your HVAC system to work overtime, causing an increase in your energy bills. The best way to discover any holes in your attic is to inspect them during the daytime when the sun will shine through them. Be sure to mend these holes with caulk to lessen the chance of moisture or critters getting in.

Get an Energy Assessment

A home energy audit can help you detect places other than your attic that need additional insulation. It should be the first step towards getting your home on the right path to maximum energy efficiency.

Keep Cool This Summer

Keep Cool This Summer

The summer months in the south bring bugs, humidity, and unbearable heat. When inside, you might feel inclined to touch the thermostat to create a cooler environment, but maybe it doesn’t seem to budge. If this is your case, it might be time for new or better insulation in your attic.

When the hot summer sun is beating down on your home, your attic is the first thing to see higher temperatures. The heat will absorb into the hard materials that make up your home and are likely to transfer downstairs into your living area, creating an uncomfortable living environment. An easy solution is to get the insulation checked in your attic.

Attic insulation creates air pockets that slow the heat from attempting to flow through your home. This will help uneven temperatures between the rooms in your house. Installing insulation can additionally help your HVAC system run more efficiently. This will keep you from wanting to turn down the thermostat and result in lower energy bills.

There are many benefits to getting your attic insulated, including:

  • Lower utility bills: You can save an average of 15 percent on your utility bills by getting better insulation in your attic.
  • Safer home structure: Insulation can help prevent gradual damage to your home caused by heat and moisture.
  • Better indoor air quality: Poor insulation can allow dust, dirt, mold, and mildew to enter your home.
  • Keep pests away: Some insulations are coated with borate, which can affect pests such as roaches, ants, and more by causing a disruption to their stomachs and can affect their nervous system. It isn’t harmful to pets or family.

If you believe you need to replace your attic’s insulation, consider reaching out to your local pest control company for a quote to experience a cooler and pest-free home for the summer.

Holiday Home Savings!

Holiday Home Savings!

It’s nearly impossible not to spend money during the holiday season. While we want to enjoy this time of gift-giving with our loved ones, it can sometimes burn a hole in our wallets! Even though the holidays are upon us, you can still find ways to cut back on costs and even create a healthier environment for your home! 

Attic Insulation 

Attic insulation can help save on energy costs and ensure you are living in a healthy environment. Some say that attic insulation is essential in cutting down on air and heat that escapes from your home. Reducing the amount of energy escaping can help lower your energy bills, potentially saving you up to 30%! 

Besides the financial impact of attic insulation, it can also help prevent overwintering pests. Pests like rats, mice, and roaches are looking for a warm place to stay over the colder months. They can easily damage your home and bring in harmful diseases. Attic insulation can help reduce and control the number of pests making their way inside your home.

Crawlspace Enclosure (CrawlSpace Care)

Crawlspace enclosure provides many benefits to homes that have them. Enclosing your crawlspace can help lessen the workload of your HVAC unit. This can help save you up to 18% on your utility bill and control humidity levels throughout your home.

While saving money on your utility bill is always a plus, making sure your family is living in a healthy environment is just as important! When you enclose (whether it’s the attic or the crawlspace), you will reap the benefits of improved air quality, consistent temperatures, and pest prevention including wood-eating insects.

Investing in insulation in your home will not only help you during the holiday season but year-round. For more information or to get a free quote, contact your local pest control company where a professional can recommend the best plan for your home.
