Insulation Installation and Services
Insulating your home is often the #1 most cost-effective home improvement measure. Ensuring you have energy efficient home insulation becomes the best first investment home owners can make to improving the comfort and saving money on electric bills. Uninsulated homes usually mean uncomfortable homes with higher utility bills. Heating and cooling dollars are wasted because the home cannot maintain the desired temperature. If your home is drafty and your heater or air conditioner is constantly running just to maintain the temperature you want, its probably because your home is uninsulated. Insulation ensures that warm air stays in during the winter keeping your home cozy and comfortable. During the summer insulation proides a barrier to the hot summer air and helps keep air conditioned air inside.
Benefits of Insulation

Lower Utility Bills- Insulating a home can save 40% of on heating and cooling costs

Improve Indoor Air Quality- Insulated homes reduce pollen and dust from outside the home.
Insulating Your Home Makes It More Comfortable
The vast majority of homes built before 1978 have inadequate or NO insulation. Up to 40% of your home energy can escape through an uninsulated attic or crawlspace. By simply insulation your home effectively this can reduce your bills by up to 40%. Insulation provides the added benefit of increased comfort by ensuring that the rooms in your home stay the temperature you want without having to constantly run a heater or air conditioner all day just to maintain an even temperature.
Professional Insulation Installation
At Advanced Home Energy, we specialize in Quality Insulation Installation (QII). We've provided professional insulation services with green insulation options such as recycled denim and cellulose loose fill insulation for thousands of home owners. They understood that installation quality is essential to creating an energy efficient and comfortable home. We professionally install insulation of only the highest quality. By analyzing your home using the latest techniques of building science we can recommend the insulation solution best suited to your home's specific design.
What Insulation is Right for Me?
Depending on the need of your project we can install spray foam insulation, rigid board insulation, cellulose loose fill, attic foam or denim batts. We primarily use green insulation products. By conducting a thorough home assessment we can determine which product works best for your needs. For homes with slanted, high ceilings rigid board insulation provides an effective ceiling insulation solution. For homes with unqiue wall designs, such as many of the older homes in the Bay Area, drill and fill cellulose provides an effective means of ensuring all the walls are filled with insulation.
Types of Insulation
The effectiveness of insulation is measured by a number called the R-value. The R-value of insulation rates how effective the insulation performs for that part of the home. The higher the R-value of insulation the more effective it is a providing a thermal barrier. Advanced Home Energy installs many types of insulation depending on your home's design and goals but we always seek to maximize the R-value of insulation for your home ensuring your home is as comfortable as possible.
