Because of the ever-increasing cost of energy, home heating and cooling efficiency are  major priorities for home-owners.

That’s why Belleville Insulation can arrange for an Energy Audit that may qualify for government rebates to upgrade your insulation.

An Energy Audit helps to determine the amount of heat energy you’ve lost over a period of time. If you are finding that the house you live in feels colder than it should in the winter and hotter during the summer, there is most likely a problem with the insulation present in your home.

We are able to identify heat loss areas as well as the likely cause of the problem. Afterwards, we will work with you or your commercial building’s maintenance personnel to best determine what repairs should be made.

Mitigating heat loss areas

After the primary areas of heat loss have been identified, Belleville Insulation will recommend the most cost effective methods for sealing heat or cooling loss. Foam insulation is one method used to prevent heat loss. Upgrading the fibreglass batts in the attic or adding blown insulation may also offer a solution. Sealing windows and doors may also be required and provide a low cost way to mitigate heat loss.
