WEATHERIZATION

INSULATION & AIR SEALING

Weatherization is the key to ensuring your home remains comfortable, energy-efficient, and cost-effective year-round.

At Tight House, we specialize in weatherization services aimed at improving the comfort, energy efficiency, and overall performance of your home. Our comprehensive approach tackles everything from energy audits to insulation installation, ensuring that your home is optimized for maximum efficiency and comfort.

Home Energy Analysis/Energy Audits
Our team of experts possesses extensive knowledge of residential house construction. We excel at identifying and fixing major building faults that contribute to discomfort and unnecessary energy loss. 

Air Sealing
Air leaks in your basement, attic, and other areas of your home can lead to significant energy loss and discomfort. Our air sealing services effectively seal up these leaky opportunities, improving energy efficiency and overall comfort.

Insulation
Proper insulation is essential for maintaining consistent indoor temperatures and reducing energy consumption. After thorough attic cleanouts and necessary installations, such as robust bathroom fans and electrical fixes, we apply a generous amount of cellulose insulation. This dense insulation acts as a thick winter blanket for your home, significantly improving comfort and energy savings.

Efficiency Maine Rebates
Similar to heat pumps, weatherization services are eligible for rebates from Efficiency Maine and may also qualify for federal tax credits. These incentives make weatherization projects more affordable and accessible than ever before. Seizing these opportunities can lead to long-term energy savings and increased comfort in your home.

Attic and Basement Upgrades
The most cost-effective improvements for your home often lie in the attic and basement. In homes with “flat attic” designs like ranches and colonials, a significant surface area is highly affected by inadequate insulation. Upgrading attic insulation can lead to substantial energy savings and improved comfort throughout your home.

Typical Attic Improvement
Our attic improvement process includes removing defunct insulation, addressing electrical issues, installing hard ducted bathroom fans, air sealing, and applying rodent-deterring cellulose insulation. These steps result in easy-peasy energy savings of up to 30% and a dramatic improvement in comfort.

Basement Insulation
Basement wall insulation is essential for maintaining a comfortable indoor environment and addressing moisture issues. Our basement insulation services involve removing defunct insulation, addressing moisture concerns, and superinsulating walls with high-density spray foam or rigid foam sheets. These upgrades not only improve energy efficiency but also enhance overall comfort and safety.
