Residential Weatherization

 
Foam Installation - radiant barrier in Houston TX
 

FOAMING OF PENETRATIONS

Our weatherization is second to none in the industry. I've been in thousands of attics and have seen firsthand that the gaps, voids and penetrations in the attic floor that lead to the air conditioned space below is out of control. The amount of loss is staggering. The Insulation Guru makes sure that the penetrations are sealed. Prior to adding insulation or during a radiant barrier install, Insulation Guru lights up the attic and looks for the headers where the pipes and wires go down into the house. These holes are sometimes bigger than a silver dollar with one small wire going down. On top of losing air and letting heat and dust into the house, this is a prime area for small rodents and bugs to enter your home. Insulation Guru covers this. It helps with the overall comfort, air quality and health and keeps your home cleaner. Call Insulation Guru and start saving today. 713-228-4878. visit www.facebook.com/insulationguru
 

WINDOWS AND DOORS

We offer several types of sealers as well as weatherization kits to better seal out the unwanted outside elements.

DUCT CHASE SEALING

Most older homes have duct chase areas that are open to the center sections of the house. These areas usually have open sheetrock walls that let heat penetrate into the air conditioned space. Unfortunately, most insulation companies over look these areas. The Insulation Guru makes sure that they are taken care of. Just as we add custom raised decking, install soffit vents and solar fans, we take the time to address all the issues that may contribute to the overall energy efficiency and energy conservation of the home. We seal it just like a new energy star home. Residential weatherization is important and is necessary. Call Insulation Guru today and start saving. 713-228-4878.

Recommended Insulation Levels (R-Level) Map

Your geographic location has a lot to do with the amount of insulation your home needs to run efficiently. The chart below offers a look at Houston and surrounding cities which rank very high on the recommended insulation levels (Zones 2 and 3). Being closer to the equator simply means more direct sunlight and increased temperatures. The Insulation Guru must take this fact into consideration when recommending insulation solutions for your home's specific needs. There are also factors such as previous depth of the insulation. Recommended insulation levels are important for so many reasons. At insulation Guru, we follow the map as well as the customers request.
