The walls and attic make up about 80% of the home’s shell and insulating and air sealing those areas may be the best thing that a homeowner can do to achieve the comfort they want.
Eastlake, OH (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
USA Insulation, the country’s largest franchised retrofit insulation company, opened a new location in Atlanta, Georgia on June 15, 2015. Owner Ryan Zondervan will be providing homeowners in Metro Atlanta and surrounding counties with superior customer service and the most energy efficient insulation available, including USA Insulation’s proprietary Premium Foam.
“We look forward to working with Ryan to further develop the USA Insulation brand in Northern Georgia,” says Patrick Pitrone, USA Insulation President. “We are pleased to be able to combat the high heat and humidity Metro Atlanta residents have to endure in the summer by providing them the many benefits our insulation offers.”
According to Pitrone, these benefits include helping homeowners enjoy a more comfortable home; increasing the energy efficiency of their home; and saving them money on their energy bills throughout the year. He warns that insulating the attic is just not enough to really make a big difference in comfort and energy efficiency. Insulating the walls, attic and air sealing other areas where necessary is the complete long-term solution to maximizing the effectiveness of insulating a home and provides immediate relief from the hot sticky weather.
Injected as a liquid into wall cavities from outside the home, USA Premium Foam Insulation gets around wires, pipes, outlets and other obstacles that other types of insulation can’t reach. It hardens quickly to provide a thermal barrier with the highest R-value (resistance to temperature transfer) of any retrofit insulation on the market. USA Insulation also offers blown-in insulation for attic spaces, and air sealing to close any openings around pipes and fixtures.
“When people are uncomfortable in their homes, they usually think that the air conditioner, the windows, or even the doors are to blame,” says Zondervan. “The fact is, the walls and attic make up about 80% of the home’s shell and insulating and air sealing those areas may be the best thing that a homeowner can do to achieve the comfort they want.”
There are over 600,000 homes in the Atlanta area that were built before 1980 when insulation was first required in homes. Those homes and tens of thousands of homes that are poorly insulated or have lost their insulating properties over time are ideal candidates for insulation.
Prior to becoming a USA Insulation franchisee, Zondervan ran the construction division for one of the largest residential construction companies in America. Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Zondervan moved to the Atlanta area when he was nine, where he now resides with his wife and three children. “I remember growing up where the winters were brutally cold,” recalls Zondervan. “Now my kids are growing up where the summers are brutally hot. I’m excited to bring a level of professionalism to help homeowners feel comfortable year ‘round in their homes—the largest investment they will probably ever make!”
USA Insulation offers a free home energy consultation to help homeowners identify areas where outside air seeps in and expensive conditioned air escapes. “Early summer is an ideal time to insulate a home,” says Pitrone. “Homeowners can look forward to being in a house that’s always cool and not have to worry about the air conditioner running all day and all night!”
