What We Do
Whatever your insulation needs, we can help you. With all the years in the insulation business, we’ve seen just about every situation imaginable. So whether it’s a crawlspace, wood or brick walls, an attic, a basement, or a Victorian home with all those little hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, we have the expertise to tackle it.
Our specialty is Natural Fiber Cellulose blown-in insulation. A soft, sound-retarding, Eco-Friendly material made from nearly 100% recycled newsprint, it’s treated with very effective, non-toxic fire retardants, and carries a class 1 Federal rating as an insulation material. Considered by many to be by far the “Greenest” of all the available insulation materials, It also gives the best “bang for your buck” when it comes to R-value gained per dollar spent.
Over the years, through extensive and exhaustive research, we’ve developed the most advanced techniques to dense-pack wall cavities so they will never settle. It requires properly trained personnel and machines specifically designed to insulate walls. That’s why we offer a lifetime guarantee.
In addition to Cellulose, we also offer the following kinds of insulation and materials:
- Fiberglass Batts
- Rigid Foam Board
- Pipe insulation
- Spray Foam (high density and low density)
- Vapor barriers
We take a Comprehensive Approach to insulating and weatherizing homes and buildings and will work with your needs—and within your budget—to find the right solution for you.
Energy Audits: Often as a homeowner or small business, it may be a little hard to figure out just where to start. We can help. An energy audit examines your structure from top to bottom, identifying areas of heat loss, air leakage, and inefficiency. We can also look at electrical appliances, furnace ratings, lighting, and virtually everything in your home that has to do with energy efficiency. From a simple walk-through to a comprehensive energy analysis, including a Blower-Door Test, we’re able to identify the areas where you can get the best gains for the dollars spent. We can then use what we learn to create a prioritized list of suggested improvements.
We also offer HERS ratings and Resnet testing.
New Construction: Though our specialty is re-insulating existing homes and buildings, there is a lot to be said for getting it right from the beginning, at the time of construction. Not only does it allow for easier access, but you can really maximize the efficiencies by taking a holistic approach “from the ground up.” If you are a builder, or are building your own home, get in touch with us and let’s work together to build a super-efficient green home or business.
Materials Supply: If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, we can help you find materials that might not be available at your local hardware store or lumber yard, and we’re happy to advise you on the best and most efficient way to get it done right the first time. Just contact us to let us know what you need.
Thermal Craft’s owner has long been involved in Solar PV and Geothermal research and has a background in these fields, recently completing a course through Solar Energy International. They are a highly respected training facility offering certification and accreditation in the Solar industry. We have training in the solar energy field going back to the 1970s and now offer Solar Pv in addition to our insulation work. As part of our continued training, we’ve also completed courses in the Building Sciences.
What this means is that we are now a one-stop shop for Comprehensive Energy Solutions. From simply adding attic insulation to caulking, weatherstripping doors, sealing windows and basic carpentry work, all the way to full-blown energy audits and installation of your own rooftop Pv power plant, we can help you both generate green energy, as well as conserve it for maximum efficiency. From start to finish, we always keep an eye on the bottom line to ensure that the measures we recommend to you have a very good rate of return for your hard-earned dollars. It has always been a great notion to us that we can offer our clients the ability to create a much more comfortable home, lower their carbon impact, reduce utility bills, and in the end, everybody gets their money back! It’s one of the greatest things about being in this business. We also stay very current on the latest rebates and tax credits available, and this is the best time to take advantage of these offers, as they can really offset a large portion of the costs when it comes to energy improvements for your home. From A-Z, we can help you become part of the solution, and do your part to help yourself, your community and our planet, and ensure a healthy future for all of us!
