EcoLogical Insulation is a full service insulation contractor, offering a complete line of insulation services from upgrading insulation in existing homes to insulating new commercial projects. Our team of professional technicians will be able to help you decide what kind of insulation is perfect for your job.
A blower door test is conducted to measure the air leakage rate and identify where air leaks are located. Existing homes, new homes and commercial buildings can benefit from a blower door test. A blower door test involves placing a fan into a door frame that lowers the air pressure inside a house by pulling out inside air. A pressure-sensing device is then used to measure the air pressure difference between the inside and outside. If your home has difficulty maintaining an indoor temperature or you notice drafts, contact our office to schedule a blower door test!
The blown-in wall system is installed in open walls of new homes or remodeled spaces. This technique completely fills gaps in the wall and provides a more complete thermal barrier than installing standard batt insulation in exterior walls. With the blown-in wall system, loose fill fiberglass insulation is densely packed into the wall cavity behind a layer of plastic to fully fill the wall cavity and increase its energy savings potential. This system can be taken one step further by air sealing the wall cavity before installing insulation.
Our commercial insulation division provides a full range of insulation products and services for commercial, municipal and educational buildings. We install commercial spray foam insulation, commercial fiberglass insulation and other commercial insulation products. We help our customers’ projects stay on time and on budget.

Our sealed crawl space system helps keep your home and family safe from crawl space moisture and pests. The foundation of our system is a reinforced vapor barrier. The vapor barrier is run up the crawl space walls and then a specially formulated sealant is applied to adhere this barrier to the wall. Finally, all joints in the vapor barrier are overlapped and secured with tape that is designed specifically to adhere to the vapor barrier. If your crawl space is ready to be sealed, contact EcoLogical Insulation today!
Duct leakage allows conditioned air to escape before reaching the desired room, increasing heating and cooling costs and affecting home comfort. A duct leakage test combines a small fan and a pressure gauge to pressurize a home’s duct system and accurately measure air leakage of the ductwork. By reducing duct leaks, your HVAC system will work more efficiently, and your heated or cooled air will get to the room you want it to reach.
Energy audits and testing evaluates a building’s unique factors that impact energy use. Energy audits and testing goes beyond blower door and duct leakage tests. It is a process of gathering building data including occupancy rates, building geometry, construction materials, lighting, plug loads, thermostat settings and more. This data is evaluated by a custom software tool to provide a list of improvements to the home based on factors unique to each home. Contact EcoLogical Insulation to learn more about energy audits and testing!
Many homeowners overlook insulation during construction in exchange for other home features. After a few years of living in an inefficient home and paying high energy bills, many homeowners wish they had made their home more efficient and invested in better insulation. By upgrading your home’s insulation, you can benefit from greater year-round comfort, more even temperature distribution throughout the home, better moisture control and more.
Insulation removal requires the same attention to detail as adding insulation. It is important that all insulation is removed completely and that the old, contaminated insulation does not infiltrate your living space during the process. When performing insulation removal EcoLogical Insulation uses equipment designed to contain the product. If your insulation has been damaged and needs to be removed or if you have questions about insulation removal, contact EcoLogical Insulation!
