Check Insulation in the Attic

Check The Insulation in your Attic.

If you have an unfinished attic, pop your head up there and take a look around.  You should see insulation up there between the beams, and there should be at least six inches of it everywhere (more if you live in the northern part of the United States)

If there is inadequate insulation up there--or the insulation you have appears to be damaged--install new insulation.  Also, depending on where you live some states offer financial incentives, up to a 75% refund for instance, to encourage homeowners to better insulate their homes.

Tip for April


This year has been terrible with rain.  You should be checking you exterior doors, windows and garage doors to be sure your caulking is sealed around the outside.  This should be applied at best every 4-5 years depending on the type of caulking you use.  
When applying you must remove all the old caulk first make sure its clean and dry and then apply fresh caulk.  If this is not done properly you will only be wasting time and material it will not seal the areas from water.  Please call us if you need any assistance.

Preventative Maintenance for A/C Units

With the high temperatures we have been having, it causes  excessive use for your A/C units.

Be sure to check your filters frequently a clogged filter can cause your coil to freeze change when necessary. It will save you money in the long run.
