Trained energy consultants from USA Insulation of Indianapolis carefully inspect homes to find ways to make them more energy efficient through proper insulation. Since 1977, the crew members have insulated more than 28,000 homes, aiming to increase R-values—a measure of the resistance to the movement of temperature through walls, ceilings, and secret lairs—and decrease heat and electric bills. To insulate drafty attics, crews blow in loose fill material that fills tough-to-reach areas. They can also apply the premium higher-R-value injection foam insulation designed for older homes, which conforms to fill all empty crevices and air seal homes without supporting mold, bacteria, or fungus growth.
