As weather conditions begin to cool, it is a good time to make sure your attic isn’t costing you money.
A few things to check for in the attic, beginning with places that can be leaking warm air; light fixtures and can lights, especially those manufactured before 2004, have plenty of holes and gaps to allow for air to escape from the living space into the attic. If these are installed wrong, you could be paying to heat your attic.
Can lights should have a cover that separates the fixture from insulation in the attic, and spray foam insulation can be applied to seal air leakages. These leakages can also occur around ductwork that drops in from above the ceiling.
During the summer, cool air passing through uninsulated ducts in warm attics can cause condensation on ductwork, and dripping will occur. This can lead to mold growth and safety issues. Uninsulated ducts are also at risk of becoming rusted and leaking conditioned air. Homeowners should check with their energy providers for any energy-efficient upgrade incentive programs available.
There are also a variety of energy testing services available to determine your options to make your home more energy efficient.

What is a Barndominium? Normally a metal or steel building that has been repurposed to add the perfect mix of living quarters and a place for fun is referred to as a Barndominium. This type of building often acts as a dual purpose living/shop or work/storage area. In North Central Texas, the average square foot price is less than $90.00 which makes Barndominiums an affordable option. By applying open-cell and closed-cell spray foam insulation, your home now becomes more energy efficient.

This Bardominium in Walnut Springs presents a unique situation regarding spray foam applications. We offer hybrid packages of both open and closed cell spray foam designed to meet each customers unique needs. What looks like a barn on the outside, could be the Shangri-La on the inside. A Barndominium is a cross between a Barn and a Condominium – you may have metal on the outside of your structure with a wood frame on the inside. Barndominiums have become very popular in North Central Texas (averaging about $80.00 a square foot). We have discovered that Barndominiums are as unique as their owners. This particular barn is framed in metal. We spray applied 1″ of closed cell foam insulation to seal the building from the outside elements. We can then spray apply open cell foam to complete a hybrid package. Rodney is the Barndominium expert.
