Looking for retrofit insulation for a commercial space or warehouse? There are many great insulation products to meet your need. One cost effective solution is the RetroShield® System.

Venturini Motorsports is located in Concord, NC. Their facility was insulated 20 years ago. That insulation began to fail which affected comfort and energy efficiency, not to mention it was visually unappealing. After considering other insulation methods, Venturini Motorsports chose the RetroShield® System.

This system uses patented Clip & Pin components that are installed in one pass to reduce any down time. In addition to adding R-value and increasing energy efficiency, RetroShield® helps brighten the workspace and improves the overall appearance.

If you are looking for a retrofit insulation solution for your commercial space or warehouse, we can help! Contact ABS Insulating to discuss your project.

Most people think that insulating their attic is unnecessary and a waste of money because no one lives or sleeps there, right? Wrong! Insulation will help keep your home's inside temperature cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Insulation adds a lid to your home to keep the heat from escaping in the cold months and warm air from entering your home from the outside in the warm months.

After thoroughly cleaning your attic to get rid of any pest remains or droppings, air sealing and insulation should be installed. Air sealing closes any openings that might allow moisture, outside air or pests to enter. Insulation creates a thermal barrier to prevent heat transfer between conditioned and unconditioned spaces.

Attic insulation can assist in reducing energy cost and make your home more comfortable. Contact us today to discuss your home’s attic insulation.

Winter is around the corner. Unless you’ve invested in home energy improvements this year, your home will be as inefficient and uncomfortable this winter as it was last year. If your home has a crawl space, sealing and insulating your crawl space can dramatically improve your home’s comfort, reduce energy bills and improve the quality of air inside your home.

Today’s building science proves that what’s underneath your home affects the inside comfort. A home’s natural airflow is from bottom to top (floor to ceiling). As your home naturally breathes, air is drawn up from the basement or crawl space, through the living area and out the attic. This natural airflow means air from a moist crawl space (and everything in the crawl space) flows up and into your home’s living area.

Here are three reasons to insulate your crawl space before winter:

  1. Improved air quality
    Crawl spaces are naturally damp. As your home breathes, air from your crawl space flows into your home’s living space through penetration points around wiring, plumbing holes and more. This means the air in your crawl space is mingling with the air you breathe. Not only is this distasteful, it’s unhealthy. Air sealing and insulating your crawl space will improve the air quality and help keep pollutants out of your home.
  2. Lower energy bills
    Does your furnace run more than you’d like during winter? This is a result of your HVAC system heating air from the crawl space that’s mingling with the air that’s already been heated. This means your HVAC system is continually working to maintain your home’s internal temperature. This results in higher energy bills and more wear and tear on your HVAC system.
  3. A more comfortable home
    An unfinished crawl space affects your home’s everyday comfort. Are your floors cold? Is your main living area significantly cooler than the upper level of your home? Sealing and insulating your crawl space will help with these issues. After a short time in an uncomfortable home, you’ll wish you had invested in insulating your crawl space.

You may have other questions about your crawl space. We welcome you to contact us to discuss your specific situation. Ready to upgrade your crawl space? Contact us to schedule a free crawl space estimate.
