Century Insulation provides Attic Insulation and Ventilation Services for all of Bloomington, MN. Our attic insulation and ventilation services take a two-pronged approach in ensuring that your home or business gets the right amount of airflow and that the roof and attic receive the appropriate amount of evenly-placed insulation. This will in turn protect your building from heat loss, water damage, mildew, mold growth, and other likely damages to the structural components.
Ice Dam Prevention Bloomington
Poor attic insulation, when combined with inadequate ventilation, can cause dramatic ice dam issues in the winter months, which is the majority of the year in this state. We can do an ice dam analysis and repair, and this often saves our customers thousands of dollars in expensive roof repairs that are not typically covered by insurance plans. And many property owners can attest that prevention is a much more affordable and simpler task to take care of than repairs – especially when structural integrity is in question.

Proper Indoor Air Circulation
The cutaway image below displays how air flows in a properly insulated home. Soffit vents below the roofline pull air from outside of the house; and this comes across the roof insulation plug and up into what is called an “air chute” – essentially, a channel that runs directly under the roof’s backing board. This also helps your home keep a healthy atmosphere for you and your family to enjoy.
This chute lets air flow from the exterior of the house and from the top of vents which release pent-up attic heat into the atmosphere. This process helps keep your home cool and insulated during the high temperatures of the warmer months.
Energy Efficiency Inspection
Century Insulation offers free energy efficiency inspections for homeowners in Bloomington. We will come in and inspect the attic, walls, and the rest of your insulation and conclude if there are any air leaks and, if so, what steps should be taken to enhance efficiency. We will check for air sealing, possibility of ice dams, and any hidden gaps in insulation. An energy efficiency inspection and upgrades from Century Insulation can be carried out in concert with an energy rebate from your respective energy company.
Energy Rebates for Attic Insulation & Ventilation
As you may know, many energy companies now offer residential rebates for homeowners in Bloomington who upgrade their attic insulation ventilation / air sealing performance. And while this is definitely true, rebates are only paid out if the upgrades are done by a certified and preferred insulation contractor. Certification must come from the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and insulation installers and contractors must have proof of this certification and it must be in good standing. Energy companies also have their own preferred contractors and at Century Insulation, we are happy to tell you that we are a preferred insulation installer for Xcel Energy and Centerpoint Energy. After we carry out our air sealing and attic insulation services, your house will run more efficiently, you will save money on future energy bills, and all of this will come at a good discount to you.
