Fact: Lack of adequate Attic Insulation is the leading cause of energy waste in the average home. Most older homes have little or no insulation, and over time insulation can become compressed and less effective increasing the costs of keeping your home comfortable throughout the year. Homes that have inadequate insulation heat up quicker during the summer and cool down quicker in the winter. Historic insulation practices have been proven to be insufficient for significant savings which is why updated recommendations call for adding as much as an additional 6-12 inches of insulation in your attic.

About Insulation From The Experts
Attic insulation is durable under the right conditions. However, moisture and compression, by gravity or physical contact, can reduce it’s efficiency significantly. Even more compelling, old attic insulation can fall victim to unwanted pest infestations or roof leaks, rendering it smelly and ineffective. Fox Service Company offers attic insulation removal services for those unfortunate attics that need a little extra help getting back into shape.

Reduced heat in the attic space is directly proportionate to reduced heat entering your living space. Call Fox Service Company to learn more about Radiant Barriers and your FREE Energy Audit today!
HVAC Duct Sealing
Fact: Ducts in the average home leak 15-40% of the home’s heating and cooling into the attic, increasing demand on HVAC systems, energy consumption and utility bills. Leaky ducts can also negatively affect air quality in your home allowing dust and other pollutants into your air. Poor air quality can exaggerate respiratory ailments and conditions and can contribute to dust and/or mold build up in your home.

Fact: Solar Screens can block up to 90% of direct sunlight and heat.

Fact: Water, dust, and other pollutants can be pulled into your home through exterior penetrations, doors, and plumbing that are not properly sealed. This can drastically reduce indoor air quality which can negatively affect allergies, respiratory illness, and home operating costs. A professional weatherization job including weather stripping on all unsealed openings can almost completely eliminate these infiltrations into your home.
