A vented attic puts negative pressure on your house, pulling air from your crawl space (or basement), windows, and other entry points into your home. If you’ve ever been in your attic during a Georgia summer then you know the attic air can be HOT. This is because most homes in Georgia are built with ventilated attics which allows air in through the soft and out through various vents. Before your unit can start cooling your house, it first has to dump that hot air into your house and then work on cooling the air off again. Units lose an average 10 to 11 degrees between making the cold air and putting it into your house because they’re having to play catch up! Enclosing your attic with quality insulation makes your HVAC system more energy-efficient and lasts longer. After an attic encapsulation, the typical unit (whether it's new or 20 years old), starts blowing about 10 degrees colder and the attic air climatizes within 5 degrees of the air inside your home!
We had a wonderful experience with Epic Spray Foam! The very first meeting was very informative, Justin answered all my questions and assured us that our upstairs cooling problems could be fixed by reducing our attic temperature. We were not able to get our upstairs to cool to the desired temperature in 90+ temp days, and we were thinking we needed a new AC system. After meeting with Justin he felt that instead of a new system what we really needed was a drastically cooler attic so that our existing system could reach the desired temperature. We decided to go with spray foam versus having a new system installed. Once we got our attic cleared of all our stuff, their team came in and vaccumed all the old pink insulation from our attic leaving it absolutely spotless! The following day their crew came in and applied the foam. Their crew was very polite and texted me to let me k ow they were finished and asked if I needed the home locked up and the thermostat reset to a desired temp. We came back home from a weekend get a way to our home completely clean after they left and the upstairs had kept the temperature we left the t-stat set at. Today outside temp is 84 and all morning and afternoon the upstairs has remained at 70 degrees which never happened last summer. On high 80’s and 90’s temp days out upstairs was always several degrees hotter and one or two days 8 degrees hotter than what the t-stat was set at. We would definitely recommend Epic Spray Foam for anyone struggling to keep their attics cooler and their upstairs cooler!
Justin and his team were very knowledgeable and insightful for our insulation needs. Justin provided recommendations to fit our budget and be the most efficient in our home. His instillation team was prompt, courteous, tidy and detailed— we are so pleased with the outcome. Would highly recommend!!
Luckily I was able to get Epic spray foam in to spray the house 1 day after signing the quote. They were prompt, courteous, professional, and informational. All my questions were answered. They even promised that I would be happy with the end result and my family and I are more than pleased that ended up becoming true. Easily will recommend to any future customers.
Insulation isn’t only used for keeping your building warm throughout winter, it's also an extremely effective way of keeping them cooler during scorching hot summer days. Adding insulation to your building frame can be one of the most cost-efficient ways to keep the hot outside air from entering
