I bought an old 1934 Bungalow house on the Farmington River that needed considerable work and had no insulation in the attic, walls and basement. I'm in the natural gas field and I have over 30 years of understanding efficiency and know that 95% equipment is only achieved at certain conditions and an un-insulated house can have losses up to 40% with air infiltration and duct work for both heating and cooling.
I did considerable research and came up with closed cell foam insulation in the attic and blown in cellulose in the walls as the best practices. I then went out and started getting prices from companies that do both. The costs were coming much higher than I anticipated then I got a great quote from Spray Tech Foam Insulation out of Southington, Ct. I did the attic, exterior walls and at their recommendation and the rim joists and under the addition which was formerly a porch converted to living space.
All the other quotes were from companies in the Hartford area that were bought out buy larger conglomerates who have to earn much higher margins and charge more than the job is really worth. Spray-Tech used the best materials, didn't cut any corners and filled every cavity as good as you could. Marc Goodman the owner is as honorable person as you could meet and was there every day to check on things which wasn't necessary. The two man crew I had were fantastic from start to finish with precision work and put down drop cloths and cleaned up after each day. The crew has been trained by all the best manufacturers and has over 15 years expierience in the insulation field. I highly recommend Spray-Tech Foam insulation company for any residential, commercial installation.
Lastly, if you are a residential customer make sure to do the $124 Energize CT audit. There is significant money you get for insulation, new windows, free LED lights and much more. In summary, Spray-Tech will be a big winner in your pocket for installed costs and energy savings. I GIVE THEM AN EASY 5 STARS FOR A RATING!
