At this residence for a new customer we replaced the outdoor heat pump section in this Springville, AL home, as part of a main floor system change out.
This customer in Cook Springs, AL was reported being very uncomfortable in their home. Our team examined the home and dervied the best solution possible to make the home more comfortable. We installed a Super Deck and regular flooring at the attic access doorway. This will help the home be more comfortable and more energy efficient.
The before picture shows the typical duct system that has insulation on the inside. This insulation was not providing the optimum performance needed to keep this home comfortable. The new encapsulation we added does two things that make this duct system more efficient: 1) it seals the joints and any air leaks and 2) it takes the R-value from R-4.2 to approx. R-14! This prevents the cool air you paid to cool from warming up as it passes through that 185 degree attic in the summer time. This will greatly decrease the homeowners energy costs and increase their homes comfort!
These homeowners in Cook Springs wanted to upgrade the insulation in their attic. Their previous insulation was not providing the home comfort that the residents were seeking, so we suggested the Silver-Glow insulated radiant barrier for their home. These pictures show the attic knee wall before, with regular insulation, and the new Silver-Glow insulated radiant barrier. The new radiant barrier will improve the performace of the homes duct work and reduce the homeowners energy costs, all while delivering increased levels of home comfort.
