Dense Packing

Not sure if your old home has insulation in the walls? Dense packing may be your solution. Thermal renovations to old buildings produce startling changes in performance. Tremendous fuel reductions result.

Building cavities are dense packed by inserting a pipe, tube, or hose down the entire wall cavity a powerful insulation blower delivers a lean mixture of cellulose and air at about a hundred feet per second. Initially the cavity is pressurized with a cloud of insulation. The air flows out through every crack and pin hole carrying fine particles of insulation. The holes are clogged with insulation until they stop flowing and the cavity fills with a loose pile. Then the cellulose chunks charging down the tube start to slam into the loose pile and pack it. When it becomes very tight, it plugs the end of the tube and stalls the insulation blower. The tube is quickly pulled back until the tip finds more loose insulation. The flow and packing process starts again and this continues until the entire cavity is solid.

The effective leakage area in old houses is typically reduced by 40-70 percent just by dense packing. This results in actual ventilation reductions of 50-90 percent. Buildings that were formerly impossible to heat without ripping them apart. Now become stable comfortable and highly efficient living and working spaces.

Blown In insulation

Poor attic insulation combined with inadequate ventilation can lead to serious ice dam issues.

Spray Foam

Highly efficient, seamless option. Best applied to unfinished spaces and remodel projects.

Fiberglass Batt

This is a cost effective way to save money. Meets building codes.

Insulation Removal

Getting the old insulation out is often necessary and is typically the nastiest part of the job.
