Attic Insulation Photo Album: Air Sealing & Adding Blown-in Cellulose Insulation to Insufficient Attic in Holmdel, NJ
We're at this home in Holmdel, NJ, to add some much needed blown-in cellulose insulation to the attic.
Removing the Old insulation
First, we removed all the old insulation...
...and disinfected the attic.
Next, we air sealed all the gaps and cracks in the attic. This will eliminate air flow between the living space and the attic, improving energy efficiency.
Afterward, we installed Tight Shell Can Light Covers over the recessed lights in the attic. These are made out of a fire resistant material and is specifically designed to stop unwanted air leakage through the recessed lights
We also installed a hatch cover goes over the attic entrance. This effectively blocks heat transfer.
Now for TruSoft
Lastly, we added over 10 inches of TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation.
