Attic Insulation 

Properly insulating and air sealing your attic will help reduce your energy bills. Attics are often one of the easiest places in a house to insulate, especially if you’d like to add insulation.

Before insulating or deciding whether to add insulation to your attic, first see our information about adding insulation to an existing house or selecting insulation for new home construction if you haven’t already.

Warning: if you think you have vermiculite insulation in your attic, there’s a chance it could contain asbestos. Don’t disturb it. Only insulation contractors certified to handle and remove asbestos should deal with vermiculite insulation.

Attic Insulation Techniques

logo_pink_is_green Loose-fill or batt insulation is typically installed in an attic. Although installation costs may vary, loose-fill insulation is usually less expensive to install than batt insulation. When installed properly, loose-fill insulation also usually provides better coverage.

Before installing any type of insulation in your attic, follow these steps:

  • Seal all attic-to-home air leaks. Most insulation does not stop airflow.

  • Duct exhaust fans to the outside. Use a tightly constructed box to cover fan housing on attic side. Seal around the duct where it exits the box. Seal the perimeter of the box to the drywall on attic side.

  • Cover openings—such as dropped ceilings, soffits, and bulkheads—into attic area with plywood and seal to the attic side of the ceiling.

  • Seal around chimney and framing with a high-temperature caulk or furnace cement.

            • At the tops of interior walls, use long-life caulk to seal the smaller gaps and holes. Use expanding foam or strips of rigid foam board insulation for the larger gaps.

Garage Storage

Where can we put all that stuff in the garage? I remember a comedy routine by the late George Carlin where he ranted for 20 minutes about ” all that stuff we all accumulate” very funny.. Anyway, thought I would share some ideas on garage storage. Not that mine is pristine by any stretch but I have found a lot of extra storage by suspending shelving, bikes, tools etc. from the ceiling. Most ceiling heights in the garage are well over 8 feet tall and provide a ton of storage that usually isn’t getting utilized. The walls are filled up with lawn tools and the floor is usually occupied with a little bit of everything, but all that space above our heads is just collecting spiders and webs.
The home centers have a lot of mounting hardware that can be used to suspend bikes, tools, coolers, spare pieces of wood or pipe, you name it. You can screw them right into the rafters for the ceiling with some 2-1/2″ wood screws. Make sure anything suspended above the garage door does not prevent the door from opening and closing properly.
If you need help finding a place for your “stuff” or would like some additional ideas on home maintenance, please visit us at www.tprci.com

Designing and Remodeling a Home

Before you design a new home or remodel an existing one, you should consider investing in its energy efficiency. You’ll save energy and money in the long run. It’s also a good time to invest in a renewable energy system that will provide your home with electricity, water heating, or space heating and cooling.

If you’d like to design an energy-efficient home, no matter what type of design, you should use what’s called the whole-house systems approach.

If you’re remodeling a home, conduct an energy audit to help you determine what energy efficiency improvements should and can be made to your home.

Learn how to optimize energy efficiency with the following home designs and construction techniques:

  • Advanced House (Wall) Framing Techniques

    Reduce lumber use and waste—improving energy efficiency—in the construction of a traditional wood-framed house.

  • Earth-sheltered Homes

    Incorporate earth into their structure and design for durability and energy efficiency.

  • Log Homes

    Use wooden logs to provide structure and insulation.

  • Manufactured Homes

    Feature energy-efficient options for new homes and improvements for older homes.

  • Passive Solar Homes

    Take advantage of climatic conditions, especially the sun, for heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.

  • Straw Bale Homes

    Use straw bales to provide all or part of their structure and insulation.

  • Zero Energy Homes

    Produce more energy than they use.

You should also explore your options for financing an energy-efficient home or improvements.
