We know it’s tough to believe - but insulation saves over 600 times more energy than all energy star windows, appliances, and lights combined throughout the country annually (per the EPA). How crazy of a stat is that?
Insulation helps reduce our carbon footprint, is better for the environment, and reduces the amount of energy we use on a daily basis (which is also huge for commercial projects). This is a huge reason why we love our work, but it’s not the only reason. Insulation is one of those critical components that makes a home a home. It helps make your home a warm and cozy environment for your family to experience incredible memories like waking up on Christmas morning and to lay down at night.
Insulation is also one of those things that you miss until it is gone. Maybe you just moved into a new home and realized that you’re spending an outrageous amount on your electric bill - the chances are you might need new or better insulation - especially if you begin feeling cold drafts in the winter or warm zones of your house during the summer.

Residential Attic Insulation
Is your attic one of those cold, dark places that would be a perfect scene for one of those horror movies with creepy dolls appearing out of nowhere? Well we hope not. Maybe your attic is like so many other homeowners where it is either hotter than all get out in the summer or colder than you know what in the winter - only used for storing holiday decorations and other nostalgic items that you will probably never use again.
Well we are here to tell you that your attic does not have to be a place of misery. Even better - professionally insulating your attic space will make sure anything you store up there will stay in tremendously better condition as a result of strong thermal control sealing your attic from air gaps and pests.
Leland Insulation Pros’ mission is to help the incredible residents of our awesome community enjoy the pure comfort of their home - and to provide peace of mind in knowing that your energy bills are not going to be more than your mortgage or rent. Insulation is not the same as it was 40 years ago - gone are the days of getting itchy installing fiberglass insulation every few years. There are countless products on the market that can help you appropriately insulate your home and significantly drive down energy costs.
Your attic is most likely one of the biggest culprits in your home as far air leakage goes, and the attic is honestly the first place to start and one of the most important spaces to insulate if your looking for better thermal control of the space. By achieving thermal control and drastically reducing the amount of effort your HVAC unit needs to put out - you reap some incredible energy savings.
How about another crazy statistic for you? The average US homeowner can save well over 15% on their annual energy bill simply by professionally insulating their attic - what an incredible cost saving.

Residential Crawl Space Insulation
Crawl spaces are one of the other most common insulation spaces for residential properties. If you’re like other homeowners whom we have worked with - you may have been told the only thing you need to do is add ventilation to achieve thermal control in the crawl space. If you’ve been told this - you are certainly not alone. It is also not incorrect - adding ventilation can be effective in some situations, but more often than not adding in ventilation for your crawl space will result in an influx of humid air into your crawl space throughout the year. This is actually the opposite of what we want to have happen in order to achieve thermal control in the crawl space because it is allowing the moisture to enter the space (which can also be bad for mold).
A great option for crawl space insulation is spray foam insulation - especially open cell spray foam. The foam will enable every single nook and cranny to be completely sealed resulting in a reduction of large thermal changes experienced in the crawl space season by season and day by day. This in turn allows your home to be tremendously more energy efficient. Additionally, the open cell spray will still allow the water and vapor to come through in order to avoid creating a moist environment that harbors mold and bacteria. We would be remiss if we didn’t explain how insulating your crawl space also helps eliminate those frigid cold hardwood floors in the morning when you wake up to run to the bathroom.
Insulating your crawl space is maybe one of the last things you might be thinking about - or maybe you think it might not be worth the expense. While it is important to always make sure the juice is worth the squeeze - insulating your crawl space is almost always worth it. A few of the benefits include:
These are only a handful of the benefits from insulating a home’s crawl space - be sure to check out our benefits page to learn about all the great things that come with spray foam insulation in your crawlspace.
