Supporting our Veterans - an Update

Supporting our Veterans - an Update

This year, Southland Insulators is proud to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. In lieu of a large celebration, we decided to make two special donations back to the community.

Our team made a donation to The Independence Fund to purchase an Action Track Chair for a wounded veteran. We are pleased to share an update about the donation to The Independence Fund. We recently learned that the Action Track Chair donated by Southland Insulators was received by an Army Corporal named Bret. Bret was injured in 2011 in Afghanistan.

In addition, we worked with Castlewood Builders and the Gary Sinise Foundation to insulate a new home for Captain Luis Avila, a veteran who was severely injured in service to our country. ON Veteran’s Day, there will be a special ribbon cutting for the Gary Sinise Foundation for Captain Luis Avila’s new home. We can’t think of a better way to honor our Veterans.

Congratulations to Bret and to Captain Avila. God Speed to them and their families.

Humbly,
Gerald R. Palmer, President

Three Reasons to Seal and Insulate your Crawl Space before Winter

Three Reasons to Seal and Insulate your Crawl Space before Winter

Winter is around the corner. Unless you’ve invested this year in home energy improvements, your home will be as inefficient and uncomfortable this winter as it was last winter.

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 beneath our home affects the comfort inside our home. A home’s natural airflow is from bottom to top (from the ground to sky). 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 every day. Not only is this distasteful, it’s unhealthy. Air sealing and insulating your crawl space will improve the air quality will 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 an upper level of your home? Sealing and insulating your crawl space will help. After a short time in an uncomfortable home, you’ll wish you’d invested in upgrading your crawl space.
