What sets Advantage Home Performance apart from other insulators is that we treat insulation as an integral system and not a commodity. A quality installation is critical to achieving optimal efficiency and comfort. We realize that most homeowner never inspect insulation work. Our crews are trained to do the right thing and our team takes pride in our insulation work and reputation.
Just how bad can attic insulation be in Phoenix and Prescott Arizona? Pretty darn bad. This short case study of a house in Mesa Arizona epitomizes just how extreme the problems can be. This educational video tells a story of fraud, neglect and ignorance. The quality of the workmanship is appalling. Most houses are not this bad, however most house built before 2000 have attic insulation problems.
If you want to reduce the entrance of dust, noise and in some case rodents, into your attic and house, the combination of insulation removal, elimination of attic vents and spray foam insulation is by far the best way to dramatically improve the performance of your home. The efficiency gains and dust reduction are impressive. This short case study of an actual job we did in Scottdale is very informative.
