Insulation

The Fifth Fuel Insulation, VA

Many older homes in Northern Virginia and Metro DC lack sufficient insulation. Unfortunately, this creates many comfort and energy efficiency issues, causing high heating and cooling bills, drafts, temperature fluctuations, and uneven indoor temperatures.

Upgrading home insulation is an effective solution, as thermal insulation prevents the transfer of heat and cold into the home. The Fifth Fuel has over 30 years of experience in residential insulation and is skilled in air sealing and insulating attics, walls, crawlspaces, and more. We can use an infrared camera to help assess where more insulation would benefit home energy efficiency and comfort.

The Fifth Fuel installs cellulose, fiberglass, and spray foam insulation. In many cases, we also air seal homes at the same time, creating greater benefit from the energy efficiency work. The Fifth Fuel begins home insulation projects by first removing old insulation and then typically air sealing gaps and crack to stop air leaks. This helps prevent air from entering and leaving the home, boosting the effectiveness and durability of the insulation.

We are certified by both BPI (Building Performance Institute) and RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network), ensuring a high level of expertise on every insulation project. The Fifth Fuel is a locally owned and operated company that has earned a strong reputation throughout Northern Virginia and Metro D.C. for providing effective energy efficiency solutions.

Energy savings for us

I thought you might be interested to know that the night following the insulation work you and your crew did in our attic Tuesday, the temperature in most of the house (except the addition) only went down to 62F, even though the outside temperature was below freezing. This means that the heating system probably did not turn on once, since we set the thermostat at 60F every night. That has to start translating into energy savings for us.

Solving Comfort Issues and High Utility Bills in Cape Cod Style Homes

Tuesday, April 26, 2016
The Fifth Fuel Blog 1, VA

Cape Cod-style homes date back to 17 century New England, where these charming homes were designed to withstand the elements. The homes are compact and have a simple rectangular footprint. A steep roof helped shed snow, relatively low ceilings made it easier to heat, and shutters helped keep wind out during storms.

The revival of the Cape Cod homes began in the late 1920s and lasted for several decades. We now have many such homes throughout Northern Virginia and Metro Maryland.
