Why do homeowners in Minneapolis and St. Paul choose Gunner Insulation?
It’s our installers! They are people that you can relate to, people that are easy to talk to, and someone that you feel comfortable to have in your home. Gunner home insulators are knowledgeable about every facet of their job, have an eye for meticulous detail, and actually care about pleasing our customers.
ATTIC INSULATION: We inspect your home’s existing insulation, determine air leakage by using a Blower Door test if needed, and then we approach insulating your attic as a complete system, which includes: Insulation, Ventilation, and Roofing.
BASEMENT INSULATION: We take the time to educate our customers on the many options that are available, along with the latest technology and best-practices, for efficient and trouble-free insulation. Our basement insulations typically use spray polyurethane foam, fiberglass insulation, or a combination of both.
If your home was built before 1980, it may have very little or no insulation at all.
We insulate many well-built, older homes in Minneapolis and St. Paul, including the very popular story-and-a-half, expansion bungalows. Although these homes were quality built at the time, none of them were very well insulated and they could all use air sealing, more insulation and better attic ventilation.
We use Blower Door testing and infrared cameras to check Minneapolis and St. Paul homes for air infiltration and heat loss, so we can determine how efficient our air sealing and insulation process is. It is also necessary to have adequate soffit and attic ventilation to remove moist air in the winter to avoid condensation, and also to exhaust hot air in the summer to lower your cooling bills. We recommend Lomanco turbine vents, which are the original Whirlybird vents; they are backed with a Forever Guarantee.
What are the benefits of reinsulating your Minneapolis / St Paul area home?
We can immediately make your home more comfortable, while your energy bills shrink, and you enjoy the savings, month after month. We would be glad to talk to you about reinsulating your home in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area to make it healthier and energy efficient. We will eliminate cold drafts by air sealing with spray foam and adding the proper level of insulation, so you’ll be warm and comfy in the winter, and run your AC less in the summer.
REBATES to help pay for improving your home’s insulation and air sealing may also be available from your local utility company, like CenterPoint Energy.
Can newer homes benefit from air sealing and additional insulation?
If you have a newer home you may think that it’s very well insulated and there’s no need to add more insulation…right? Not exactly, even though your home is newer, your builder may have looked at super-insulating your home as just another additional expense, and decided to install the minimum amount to keep the cost of the home lower and his profits higher. It happens…a lot!
However as a homeowner, you quickly realize air sealing bypasses and adding insulation is just a onetime investment that keeps saving you money by reducing your energy bills. In the future, as energy prices continue to increase, your investment in insulation will keep paying off with every energy bill, month after month, year after year. So add some more insulation to your home, it’s one of the best investments you can make.
