Attic Insulation and Rodent Proofing in Pasadena

Attic Insulation and Rodent Proofing in Pasadena.

South Pasadena is a beautiful place to live and work. It is filled with nice places to shop and beautiful natural scenery. We use an industry-grade vacuum, one of the most powerful available, to ensure every bit of outdated insulation is removed from your home. We use specialized bags to dispose of the old insulation in a dumpster, so you’ll never have to worry about it blowing around your yard. Afterward, our team is ready to install new insulation to keep your home comfortable, energy-efficient, and free from the multitude of problems outdated insulation can cause. Insulation wears down over the years, and as it breaks down, its thermal resistance decreases. This adds up to a home that isn’t providing you with the highest level of home comfort and costs you in unnecessarily high utility bills. Our team at Assured Insulation Solutions has a time-tested practice to remove your home’s insulation.

Detecting Air Leaks

Most homes leak two to three times more than they should. The trick is not to counteract these leaks with a more powerful furnace and air conditioner—it’s to find the holes and plug them up. The top techniques for detecting air leaks in your home include:

  • Visual inspection: You would be surprised how many air leaks are easy to spot. Check all exterior windows and doors, electrical outlets and switch plates, baseboards, the fireplace damper and attic hatch. Any gaps or cracks indicate wasteful air leaks.
  • Building pressurization: Some leaks are hidden behind walls, ceilings and floors where you can’t spot them. That’s why home energy auditors perform blower door tests to pressurize your home and make these leaks easier to find. By pointing an infrared camera at different places in a room or watching the swirls of smoke from a smoke pencil, the auditor can tell precisely where leaks are coming from and seal them on the spot.

Insulating your home in South Pasadena without addressing the underlying air leaks first is like wearing a knit sweater on a blustery day. The wind cuts right through the fabric and chills you to the bone. What you need is an added windbreaker layer to stop the wind. Then, the sweater provides the extra insulation you need to keep warm. This is how air sealing and insulation work together.
