Does your home always seem to be cold during the winter or hot during the summer? Does it seem like the temperature in your home is never quite right? Are your heating and cooling costs driving up your utility bill? The culprit may be a matter of poor insulation in your attic or walls.
Home insulation is an important factor in keeping utility costs down, lowering your energy usage, and making your home more comfortable. A well-insulated home can help prevent outside temperatures from working against your heating and cooling system by reducing the amount of heat flow between the inside and outside of the home. This means your heater runs less in the winter, and your air conditioner runs less in the summer.
On average, you can save up to 20% on your home’s heating and cooling costs or up to 10% on its total energy costs by properly insulating your home and reducing unwanted air leaks all around your house*. Synergy Companies can help identify air leaks by performing a home energy audit. For optimal energy efficiency, your home should be properly insulated from the roof down to its foundation.
Cellulose is an organic material made from plant fiber, oftentimes coming from recycled materials such as newspapers, and is treated with a natural fire retardant. Fiberglass is lighter and subsequently useful in areas where the weight of the insulation material must be taken into account.
When adding insulation, you do not have to use the same type of insulation that currently exists. You can add loose fill on top of batts or blankets, and vice-versa. With over 30 years of experience, our California energy specialists can help you determine the best insulation for your needs.

Tom helped me greatly in understanding the program. Also, it has greatly improved my home efficiency and lowered my energy bills! He was very involved through the whole process and his team did a great job.
I have had other inspections by other companies for various issues and most of them were hurried and impersonal. Ezequiel was polite and professional, encouraged me to observe his inspection and answered all my questions. He was very knowledgeable on every item.
