It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas also happens to be one of the most expensive times of the year. Holiday travel. Purchasing gifts for family, friends, and co-workers. Extravagant meals. It can all add up.
When you add the expenses associated with the holidays to your normal cost of living, it can be almost unmanageable, in particular, if your home is having temperature control issues, which isn’t uncommon in southern Louisiana. The extreme heat and humidity of summers give way to the fluctuating temperatures of winter.
Control fluctuating temperatures with an attic encapsulation
Whether you’re in New Orleans, Metairie, or Slidell, you’ve experienced the shift from searing 80 degree days to 40 degrees of bone-chilling damp cold. If your home lacks proper insulation, the swings in temperature outside can result in corresponding extremes inside, and you’re likely to get enough exercise running back and forth to the thermostats to balance out those heavy holiday meals!
A recent client of Sunlight Contractors, LLC was having just that problem. David’s Slidell home cost a small fortune in heating and cooling bills, an experience most of us can sympathize with. After looking around at possible solutions, David realized that open cell spray foam applied to the roof deck of his attic could be just the fix for his temperature control problems.
Closed cell spray foam seals in conditioned air while reducing air infiltration
While spray foam is perhaps the most energy efficient insulation on the market, it is a job that is best left to certified spray foam professionals to ensure that the chemicals are precisely mixed and applied. While less diligent professionals can be hired at a cheaper rate, the cost of undoing damage caused by inexperienced installers can be even higher than the cost of installation itself!
Aware of the precision needed for a proper installation, David did what any wise consumer would do. He checked reviews on Angie’s List and spent some time doing research with the Better Business Bureau to identify the best local team for the job. Needless to say, with an A+ from the BBB and dozens of glowing reviews to our name, Sunlight Contractors was the way to go.
Our expertise and commitment to customer satisfaction is reflected in our Better Business Bureau rating!
The open cell spray foam we applied not only sealed air leaks that would allow the infiltration of exterior air and the escape of conditioned air, it also added an ignition barrier to the attic, which makes it an extraordinarily safe insulation and air sealing alternative.
Now, David can experience all the wonder of the season without the wild temperature fluctuations! That means his Christmas holiday will be cozier and more cost effective. With all the good cheer and savings he’s experiencing, he’ll have plenty more to spend on stocking stuffers for family and friends!
