Attic insulation can make your home much more energy efficient and save you money every month. For the best results, we can analyze your current situation and recommend the best solution for you.
As Pittsburgh’s attic insulation experts, we can do an analysis of your home for free. When we do our assessment, we won’t be guessing. We use infrared technology - it’s the best way to get real information about where energy is actually escaping from your home.
Heat flows naturally from warmer areas to cooler ones. It does this by one of three different methods: conduction, where heat is delivered directly from one mass to another; convection, the transfer of hot air from one space to another (hot air rises, cool air sinks); and radiation, which simply means that any warm mass passes off heat toward a cooler one.
The main function of insulation is to minimize the radiation and convection effect of heat and minimize conduction. In climates like Pittsburgh with large temperature swings between seasons, insulation will keep the home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
There are many different types of insulation, but one that is often overlooked is eShield.
eShield is our top recommendation for people who want the best insulated home possible. Often homeowners think of insulation as only on the attic floor. But our eShield Reflective Insulation can go on attic walls and ceilings. eShield is a reflective energy barrier that works with nearly any type of traditional insulation, from blown-in to fiberglass. eShield contractors like us are professionally trained, and we can advise you on the best solution for your individual needs.
eShield multilayer reflective energy barrier can be used for:

Blown-in insulation, as opposed to batt insulation which uses fiberglass blankets, creates a seamless blanket of insulation in your attic. You could spend hours kneeling to achieve the same result with fiberglass batts in your attic.
Batt insulation does offer a known, consistent R-value if installed properly. However, blown-in insulation still gives you a powerful insulation.
There is no-risk in calling us for a free analysis of your home’s insulation. We’ll use our infrared scanning technology and base our recommendations on fact. The longer you wait to get your home well-insulated, the more money can escape every month in the form of wasted energy.
