Why Thorough Testing Matters  Before Insulation Work

At Home Shield Insulation, we emphasize the importance of thorough testing before proposing any insulation or air-sealing solutions. Here’s why:

Identifying the Real Problem

Without proper testing, insulation work can be a shot in the dark. We ensure that we address the actual issues affecting your home's comfort and energy efficiency.

Cost-Effective Solutions

By understanding the root cause, we can offer solutions that are more effective in the long term, avoiding unnecessary expenses on inadequate fixes.

Enhanced Home Comfort and Efficiency

roper testing leads to targeted solutions that significantly improve your home's thermal regulation and reduce energy bills.

Our Comprehensive Testing Methods

Thermal Imaging Test
  • What It Is: A non-invasive method using infrared cameras to detect temperature differences in your home.
  • What It Reveals: This test reveals hidden air leaks, poor insulation, and moisture issues. By identifying temperature variances, we can pinpoint exactly where your home is losing energy.
  • Why It’s Important: It allows us to see the unseen, ensuring that no insulation gap or air leak is left unaddressed.
Blower Door Test
  • What It Is: A powerful fan mounted into the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside.
  • What It Reveals: As the outside air flows back into the house through unsealed cracks and openings, we can identify and measure the air leakage.
  • Why It’s Important: This test quantifies the air tightness of your home, providing a baseline for improving air sealing and insulation.
Duct Blaster Test
  • What It Is: A test that uses a small fan to pressurize the duct system, measuring the amount of air leakage in the ductwork.
  • What It Reveals: It helps in detecting leaks in your HVAC ducts, which can be a significant source of energy loss.
  • Why It’s Important: Properly sealed ducts enhance the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, improving comfort and reducing energy costs.
