Attic Insulation & Ventilation Services | Minneapolis Attic Insulation
Century Insulation offers attic insulation and ventilation services for the surrounding Minneapolis and St Paul, MN metro area and extended region. Typically our attic insulation and ventilation services take a two-pronged approach in ensuring that your home or business gets the proper level of airflow and that the roof and attic get the proper amount of and evenly-placed insulation. This will, in turn protect your building from heat loss, water damage, mildew, mold growth, and other possible damages to its structural components. Minneapolis Attic Insulation
Ice Dam Prevention | Minneapolis Attic Insulation
Poor attic insulation, combined with inadequate ventilation can lead to serious ice dam issues in the winter months, which is the majority of the year in Minnesota. We can perform ice dam analysis and repair, often saving our customers thousands of dollars in costly roof repair expenses that are rarely covered by insurance plans. And many property owners can assert that prevention is much more affordable and easier to handle than repairs – especially when structural integrity issues are involved.
Proper Indoor Air Circulation | Minneapolis Attic Insulation
The cutaway image below shows 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 below the roof’s backing board. This also helps your home maintain a healthy environment for you and your family.
This chute allows air to 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 in the high temperatures of summer.
Energy Efficiency Inspection:
Century Insulation offers free energy efficiency inspections for homeowners. We will come in and inspect the attic, walls, and the rest of your insulation and determine 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 gaps in insulation. An energy efficiency inspection and upgrades from Century Insulation can be done 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 who upgrade their attic insulation ventilation / air sealing performance. And while this is true, rebates are only paid out if the upgrades are performed 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 current. Energy companies also have their own preferred contractors and at Century Insulation, we 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 your energy bills, and it will all come at a discount to you.
