Harahan homeowner got energy efficiency with certified installers

Harahan homeowner invests in energy efficient

Hire Certified Installers

Balash decided, he needed a certified installer if he was going to spend the money to upgrade his insulation. He had chosen spray foam insulation for the project.  Eager to see his heating and cooling costs reduced, he began researching local insulation contractors. What he found was typical of an unregulated industry.  Balash decided he would not change using a fly by night company.  He definitely would hire a certified installer.  He wanted to make sure that his problem was solved and his utility bills reduced.

In New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and other southern Louisiana cities, temperatures can easily reach into the 90s on a regular basis during the months between June and September. The heat paired with the high levels of humidity mean that air conditioners run perpetually throughout the summer, quickly becoming the bulkier part of a homeowner’s utility bill.

In the case of Douglas Balash of Harahan and many other local residents, utility bills of $500 per month or more have become the norm as the cost of heating and cooling rises alongside the increasingly hotter summers. However, a properly sealed and insulated home can cut that bill in half while increasing comfort and lowering a family’s carbon footprint.

Licensing for Spray Foam Certified Installers

Many contractors who boasted of being licensed by the Louisiana State Board of Licensing for Contractors, in fact had only home improvement registration, which can be received by anyone with $50 and time to fill out the necessary form.

Similarly, contractors who claimed that they were licensed to install spray foam were in fact licensed by the very vendor who sold them their product. Not by a third party organization with rigorous and objective standards.  To ensure proper training, a certified installer should have credentails from the trade associations.

Fortunately, there is one company in southern Louisiana that offers affordable, energy efficient spray foam insulation application by contractors with legitimate qualifications earned the hard way: through study, experience, and empirical assessment.

Balash hired our team to come out to his home and encapsulate the attic with open cell spray foam. In doing so, he not only provided top of the line insulation for his home, but he also sealed air leaks that allow conditioned air to escape. He can expect to see a 40% to 50% decrease in his monthly utility bills simply because his heating and cooling units won’t have to work half as hard to maintain consistent temperatures and mitigate humidity.
