Insulation & Air Sealing
We at E3 Power use the “building as a system” approach along with diagnostic testing to provide economic energy saving solutions to increase the comfort, health, safety, and the durability of your existing building.
Blower Door Assisted Air Sealing
A blower door is used to depressurize the building and simulates an approximate 20mph wind on all sides of the building. This aids us in finding areas of the exterior walls that provide paths for energy exchange to the outdoors. With low expansion spray foams and caulks we correct these issues to increase the overall comfort and energy efficiency of your home.
New energy efficient recommendations for insulation R-values in Colorado are: Attic R-49, Wall R-18, Floor R-25, Crawlspace R-19, and Basement R-11. We help to reach these standards by assessing current insulation levels and adding additional insulation using a variety of methods and materials based on the location of improvement.
All upgrades include:
- Blower door assisted air sealing
- Ceiling, wall, crawlspace and basement insulation
- Pre and post installation diagnostic testing
Dense Packing Walls with Cellulose Insulation
We drill holes into each stud bay and fill each cavity with cellulose insulation.
After filling each cavity we patch and retexture the holes.
No. This isn't a "before" photo. This is after! Can you tell where the holes were?!
This photo shows our insulation vacuum. The large "burrito" in back is full of old insulation. Removing the insulation gives us full access to the attic floor allowing us to air seal exceptionally well!
After removing the insulation and air sealing the attic we get busy adding new cellulose insulation.
This photo is of a crawlspace after we've added a 12mil vapor barrier and a fiberglass perforated vinyl blanket.
This is a photo of a combustion flue that was insulated prior to us starting work. While insulating ductwork is a good idea, insulating the flue pipes is not, as they get very hot.
