Absolutely! Insulation will help keep comfortable temperatures throughout the year while reducing energy costs by up to 30%… You might think that it is better to have too much insulation than too little, but excessive insulation may actually harm the overall performance of your home’s HVAC system. Over-insulation restricts airflow through the ducts and reduces your home’s ventilation capability. This in turn gives rise to a host of issues, such as moisture problems, and harmful mold growth. See our Insulation page for more information.

Typically, rodents are inside the attic only during the late night and early morning. When one of our technicians is inspecting the attic, they typically run out due to the human activity. This is the best time to close any holes as the rodents will be sealed out of the structure. In the rare case that a rodent is stuck in the attic after it was sealed, we will return to pick it up. This is similar to using traps, however, the difference with rodent proofing is that you are securing a long-term solution.

We use the brand Owens Corning. It comes in the form of fiber glass blown-in or fiberglass batting (rolls) insulation. We also offer cellulose insulation. This insulation is extremely safe and has received the Energy Star Certificate. If you’re unsure what the best insulation for your home is, we’re happy to perform an inspection and provide you the best options.

We do repair and replace air ducts — however, we DO NOT recommend a simple cleaning if your ducts have been contaminated by rodents. This situation requires an in-depth procedure to ensure the contamination does not blow into your home.
