About Home Performance with ENERGY STAR

Is your home cold, drafty, or uncomfortably hot? Do you have high energy bills, ice dams on your roof, peeling paint or excessive dust?

These are common problems found in homes that may not be as energy efficient as they could be and can benefit from a whole-house energy improvement. Investing in home performance work can make your home more comfortable, and at the same time improve its energy efficiency − saving you money on utility bills and helping to protect the environment, too.

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR can help improve your home's comfort, indoor air quality, and safety, while lowering your utility bills.

Arcos Environmental is specially trained to understand how your home operates, can identify health and safety issues, and give you personalized recommendations for increasing your home's energy efficiency.

Air-sealing & Insulation

Air sealing closes air leaks caused by gaps or cracks using spray foam, caulking, weather strips, etc.

Insulation goes into your attic & walls to reduce heat loss when it is cold outside and to keep heat from entering during the summer months.

Why Air-seal & Insulate?

Insulation Alternatives

After fully assessing your home's strengths and needs, we will recommend the most effective insulation for your situation.

Our Blown In Cellulose insulation can be adjusted to add to or increase your "R-Value" so you get the maximum benefit for the lowest cost.

Optimizing your insulation envelope might include our Injection Spray Foam application utilizing our specialized equipment to fill cavities, gaps and cracks around utility receptacles, registers, outlets and windows & doorways ensuring you receive the most complete insulation application.

Applegate R-Foam Insulation - is versatile. It can be used to re-insulate older homes that contain little or no insulation, even if the wall cavity is partially filled with old, ineffective insulation. Applegate R-Foam does what others cannot, flowing through empty space and across old material to fill the wall cavity. Applegate R-Foam can be injected into the wall cavity from either the interior or from the exterior of the home. It can even be installed behind existing brick.

R-Foam is biodegradable and excess foam is easily cleaned up and disposed of. R-Foam is a Class A building material and meets or exceeds all testing requirements of current building standards.

R-Foam foam solves the problem of drafty walls in poorly insulated homes. R-Foam is non-expanding injection foam that can be injected into walls of existing homes. It can be installed from the inside through the drywall or from the outside through the exterior siding or brick.
