The most cost-effective and immediate way to make your home more cost efficient, by cutting heating and cooling costs, is to add insulation. Applying new insulation to the sanitized attic, crawlspace or wall, after waste remediation has been completed, is the final step of the waste remediation process. This leaves the space clean and properly insulated. Loose-fill/blown-in insulation or batts insulation, usually made of fiberglass or cellulose, will be installed in your attic, crawlspace or wall by our certified specialists.
Our wildlife professionals often find that homes have been under-insulated since the time of construction. Once an animal has occupied an attic or crawlspace for any length of time, the insulation will have been damaged and the animals will have left hazardous waste. Animals will remove insulation from large areas, matte the insulation with their feces, body oil and excrement, and destroy the insulation's thermal barrier or R-value.
BENEFITS OF ADDING INSULATION

Doing your part to help reduce greenhouse gasses can be as simple as reducing power consumption by adding or replacing poor insulation. When you combine proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you can cut your heating and cooling energy use and reduce environmental emissions by 20-50%!
It is important that a home is properly insulated. A well-insulated home reduces the amount of time the heating and cooling systems are required to run This decreases wear on the equipment, which also increases the life of the heating and cooling system. Adding insulation gives heating and cooling systems more effective control over the temperature, as it reduces the load on the equipment.
