Vienna VA Home Remodel with Insulation

This Vienna VA home was being remodeled and had its interior frame stripped down to allow for installation of more modern insulation products.  Our team started working in the attic before addressing the inside of the walls in the rooms below.  Old insulation was removed and the attic was air sealed with Zyp Foam in order to control unwanted air flow in and out of the space.  A new attic floor decking was constructed by our team along with damning/walls to hold in the Tru Soft Cellulose Insulation that would later be blown in.  A zippered Attic Tent door cover was installed to properly seal up the attic door and control air loss from the rooms below.  The final result for the attic was a thick layer of insulation and a more energy efficient top floor of the home.  The floor/decking would allow for storage space and the ability to walk around the attic.  

Arlington VA Attic Decking Walkway

This attic in Arlington VA was previously treated by our team and had been filled with Tru Soft Cellulose Insulation.  The homeowners decided that they needed to have a more cleared access to their HVAC and utility systems in the attic so they asked up to create a path.  Our Production team was able to build a walkway from the attic hatch all the way to the HVAC unit in the attic.  

Ashburn VA Attic Insulation, Air Sealing and Energy Reduction

This Ashburn VA home was the recipient of a whole attic systems project.  Removal of old insulation, air sealing using Zyp Foam, foam paneling used to cover several HVAC exchange boxes and Tru Soft cellulose insulation blown in to to cover it all.  This will all help to reduce the energy cost it takes to heat and cool the home year round and make the home more comfortable for the owners. pictured here BEFORE is the attic with its original insulation and no air sealing below.  The AFTER photo shows the old insulation removed and Zyp Foam having been used to seal all of the gaps and cracks where conditioned air had been able to leak from the home below.  

Mold Treatment- Leesburg, VA

This Leesburg, VA homeowner had mold growing in their vented attic assembly that was causing the family to develop allergies and get sick very often.  Comfenergy discovered this attic mold and treated it with MoldX-2 before air sealing, insulating and providing other services.

Leesburg VA Attic Insulation and Air Seal

This Leesburg VA home was uncomfortable to the homeowners.  They called us to get help and our Home Performance Sale Pro Eric went out to perform a no cost whole home inspection to try and find a solution to their problems.   The attic had insulation that was not getting the job done.  The performance level of the existing insulation (otherwise known as R Value)  was less than what would be needed for the type of home and space in the attic along with the fact that the attic was not air sealed.  This meant that conditioned air made by the HVAC system was being allowed to escape from the rooms it was made to cool down or heat up, causing the HVAC system to run more and use up more energy.  Our production crew came and removed the existing insulation, then used Zyp Foam to create an air seal around the cracks and can light fixtures that accessed the rooms below.  They would then install Rock Wool insulation to cover the base of the attic and then blow in Tru Soft Cellulose insulation to fill the space to its needed R Value.  Shown here is the attic at the mid way point in the project when the existing insulation was removed and the air seal had been completed.  Then shown as after is the finished project with Tru Soft insulation covering everything.
