Attic Insulation & Ventilation Services Minneapolis
Century Insulation provides Attic Insulation and Ventilation Services for all of Minneapolis. Our attic insulation and ventilation services take a two-pronged approach in ensuring that your home or business gets the proper amount of airflow and that the roof and attic get the appropriate amount of and evenly-placed insulation. This will, in turn protect your building from heat loss, water damage, mildew, mold growth, and other potential damages to its structural components.
Ice Dam Prevention Minneapolis
Poor attic insulation, when combined with inadequate ventilation, can lead to serious ice dam issues in the winter months, which is the majority of the year in this state. We can perform ice dam analysis and repair, often saving our customers thousands of dollars in expensive roof repairs that are rarely covered by insurance plans. And many property owners can assert that prevention is much more affordable and easier to take care of than repairs – especially when structural integrity issues are involved.
Proper Indoor Air Circulation
The cutaway image below displays how air should flow in a properly insulated home. Soffit vents below the roofline pull air from outside of the house; this comes across the roof insulation plug and up into what is known as an “air chute” – essentially, a channel that runs directly under the roof’s backing board. This also helps your home maintain a healthy atmosphere for you and your family.
This chute lets air flow from the exterior of the house and from the top of vents that release pent-up attic heat into the atmosphere. This process keeps your home cool and insulated during the high temperatures of summer.
Energy Efficiency Inspection
Century Insulation offers free energy efficiency inspections for homeowners in Minneapolis. 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 can be taken to improve efficiency. We will check for air sealing, potential for ice dams, and any gaps in insulation. An energy efficiency inspection and upgrades from Century Insulation can be carried out in conjunction with an energy rebate from your energy company.
Energy Rebates for Attic Insulation & Ventilation
As you may be aware, many energy companies now offer residential rebates for homeowners in Minneapolis who upgrade their attic insulation ventilation / air sealing performance. And while this is 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 has to be current. Energy companies also have their own preferred contractors and at Century Insulation, we are pleased to inform you that we are a preferred insulation installer for Xcel Energy and Centerpoint Energy. After we perform our air sealing and attic insulation services, your house will run more efficiently, you will save money on future energy bills, and all of it will come at a discount to you.
