Whole house insultion

There are 4 furnaces in my new 18,000 square foot home. Two of which are 100,000 BTU’s each. The other two @ 60,000 BTU’s (properly rated).
Heavy artillery aside… Energy wise my house is extremely efficient. Being equally super sealed thanks to AVENUE INSULATION. One of those rare companies who definitely know how to do it right. Believe me I did my homework, and contracted someone who knows what they’re talking about and stands by their work. And I’m glad I didn’t short cut with the closed cell foam. ‘Cause this stuff works!

But what really drove it home in real world terms, is the unexpected feedback I got from other trades. My HVAC Guys were blown away (no pun intended) not to mention the electricians. They came in when only one of the ‘baby’ furnaces was on in the basement at 20°. The whole house was already heated warm. What better test! Given we had heavy winds and extreme cold temperatures. And my not-so-tiny house is largely exposed on open waterfront. (Recall the freezing days we had earlier this January when temperatures bottomed) To make a long story short…the HVAC guy walked onto the jobsite and as a matter of habit, turned on the 2nd baby furnace to 21° shortly thereafter turning it off. Because it was not required.

By a long shot this is the best investment I made on my home.

Whole house foam insulation

Prompt estimate, flexible schedule, fast work and high quality… did I miss something???
It is more than 100 years old and very complicated house. Job had to be done in stages. Everything was done perfect in time and convenient for me.
Thanks a lot.
Sorry no pictures, just imagine – everything is BLUE ;-)

Basement and Sunroom spray foam

Andy and Lara from Avenue Insulation were prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable when discussing our needs with respect to spray foam insulating our basement and sunroom. After agreeing to use their services, the spray foam truck was scheduled to arrive the following week.

True to their word, their installers showed up right on time, as expected. The guys were great, very friendly, courteous and cleaned everything up after themselves once they were done. We're very happy with the results we got from Avenue Insulation and will definitely use them again in the future and recommend them to our friends.

Approximate cost of services:
$3,000.00

Insulation was removed and foam insulation was installed.

Our newly bought home had terrible drafts, especially around the skylights. The furnace ran very frequently and even after we had it and the ducts cleaned, the smell of cigarette smoke still lingered.

I called a few insulation companies to come over to quote an insulation top up. When doing the inspection, they said they would not do the upper atic because it was too tight to fit into.
When the Avenue Insulation group looked at it, they said the upper attic would be a challenge but their guys liked challenges.
They also looked at the old insulation and noticed it was moist from condensation, there was no vapour barrier in the atic, there was no insulation around the skylights and the venting around the roof was not done properly. They suggested a few options and scenerios around how long we were going to live in the house.

We agreed to remove the old, damaged, smoke saturated insulation and replace it with new air tight foam. It was more costly than just doing a top up but without a vapour barrier, it made the most long term sense.

The crew got to work a couple of weeks after the agreement and did the complete job over four days because the upper atic was so tight and cut in half by one of skylights that one of the crew had to cut a hole in the roof for entry. He did an excellent job also patching it back up too. Both atics are now very well insulated while the smell of smoke has disappeard and the furnace immediately stopped running by 70%.

Also, while the crew was working they noticed other unseen problems from the inside of the house like a leak that ran along a main support beam to the outside wall. Fixing this while it was small saved a much bigger problem for the future.

After the crew was finished, they cleaned up what little mess that was made. The entire staff of this organization is very friendly and reliable to make the whole experience a positive one.
