"Installation was accomplished quickly and professionaly. There was a mistake in billing as for for amount of attic space covered but the company rep quickly resolved the issue. Due" to medical limitations I have not climbed a ladder to check the job but at this time I am satisfied, I can already notice an improvement in heating and cooling the treated room. Thank you for your help.

"This is my experience. After you buy the deal, don't expect a call back and you probably won't get one, so take the initiative and call the provider after a couple of days" to discuss scheduling the appointment. make sure you remind them of the service (e.g. I bought 350sqft of blown in insulation deal on angie's list). If you fail to, the first person to come to your house will come probably unprepared i.e. they drive different trucks based on whether you need fiber blow insulation, duct cleaning, etc. In my case, he came and told me they'll have to return because they did not have the correct truck. They could not make the second appointment as someone had called in sick. So they rescheduled. The third time around a supervisor was sent to my house and he only came to verify the square footage! he told me someone will call me back to setup a date again and almost 6 days later, I received the call back. Finally, the appointment date came and they showed up 30 minutes early and were in and out in under 30 minutes. However, as I said, they required me to reconfirm the deal and that it was already pre-paid by printing out the angies list invoice. I was not impressed that they kept reminding me that they were "loosing money on the deal" on angies list and was getting concerned they were not going to honor it. I understood that they were loosing money as the price was lower than buying a bag of insulation alone! So yes, I understood, but it wasn't really nice for each one to repeat that over, an
again on each visit or phone call. Overall, they delivered and I appreciate that. So for that' I give them high A grade. But I give them C grade for communications.

is very personable and knowledgeable, and was able to give me excellent advice on crawl space and drainage issues that I didn't know about. His team has been together for a number of years. They completed all the work in one day. They laid out everything from under the house, and took away all the junk we didn't want to keep. His foreman crawled under the house with me to help me see all that had been done and answer my questions. They even gave me disposable coveralls to use in crawling under the house.

Google and read about it. Some people swear by it, though their comments sound suspiciously like they were all written by the same person. Some call it a rip off - expecially people paying $6000-8000 for what would normally be a $1,000 range job.

I would not call it an outright fraud as they are providing a product that has some potential merit in the right application, but from a technical standpoint it sounds suspicious. They claim a 1/4 mat with doiuble sided foil facing is R-16 insulation. This at least is deceptive - they appear to be saying its radiant heat reflective properties give the equivalent of R-16 insulation, because there is NO WAY 1/4" foam is going to yield R-16 in an ASTM test for insulation, which is a thermal conductivity test. Would be lucky to get R-2 or so as an insulator, so this is basically a radiant barrier. Competing products from national brandname manufacturers list R value of 3.8-4.2 for one inch mats, so the equivalent for this 1/4" mat would be expected to be in the R1 range.

Properly installed, with ventilation on BOTH sides, it can be slightly effective in reducing radiant heat loss from the house, and more effective in reflecting heat in the attic from coming down into the house. However, from a thermodynamic and vapor control standpoint, they are trouble unless their integration into the house envelope is designed VERY carefully. Short explanation:

1) for keeping heat in the house, if they are installed above the attic floor insulation they can slightly limit air loss through the ceiling, and reflect radiant heat back down, resulting in warmer insulation, hence a warmer ceiling - but not as marked an improvement as added insulation would give.

2) for keeping attic heat from getting into the ceiling, they do reflect back a good portion of the radiant heat coming from the roof sheathing. This reduces the attic floor insulation surface temperature, so can reduce air conditioning cost. it does increase teh temperature in the attic, which can be very bad for support timbers and the roof sheathing.

3) the worst thing about how this type of foil radiant barrier is used is that, unless it has free air space on both sides, it acts as a vapor barrier. In the typicall application as a blanket over attic floor insulation, it traps any moisture coming up from the house, and can cause mildew and rot, especially in climates where the outdoor temperature gets quite cold.

4) the attic fans are generally a last resort measure - the normal house does much better, at no energy cost, using ridge vents with adequate eave openings to provide ventilation and cooling in the attic.

5) their effectiveness in winter heat diminshes rapidly with time - tests of attic radiant barriers show they lose about half their effectvieness within 5 years, because even a light dust coating greatly reduces their ability to reflect radiant heat, and greatly increases the absorption of heat from the hot air above them.

6) pay attention to cost - from what I see, their installed cost is many times the cost of normal insualtion or radiant barrier placement.

I would say, in summary, buyer beware, and I would be inherently leery of a product being sold the same way timeshares and "secret" moneymaking schemes are.

?

Obviously this is not a timely response to the initial question. However, for those who may be reading these answers at a later time, a couple of added thoughts:

1) the radiant barrier being discussed is basically heavy-duty metal foil or metallized surface on a plastic sheet, intended to reflect RADIATED heat (infrared radiation - think heat light, or heat you can feel at a distance radiated from a fireplace), the same way a mirror reflects light. Radiated heat is how a standard oven broils and how steam and hot water baseboard heat predominately work.

2) you generally should do NOT place a radiant barrier over the insulation that lies between and over the joists in a normal attic, especially in a region where the attic temperature can frequently reach condensation temperature (below about 45-50 degrees) - it may reflect back some of the house heat that is coming up from the house, but by destroying most of the temperature gradient from the house to the attic air destroys much of the driving force that moves moisture to the attic air and subsequent venting. Between that greater heat and the fact the barrier is also a moisture barrier, that makes a perfect condition for mold and rot in your insulation and attic wood, and has become quite an issue in energy upgraded homes because of retrofits that cut off airflow outside the insulation, but do not cut off the moisture source leaking thorough from the house. The proper and ONLY place for a vapor barrier in a normal attic insulation system is on the pressurized and normal warm, humid side of the insulation zone - directly above the ceiling drywall in the top floor, fastened to the UNDERSIDE of the ceiling joists or trusses, NOT anywhere above that. Perforated barriers are supposed to reduce this tendency, but the perforation area percentage is so small that typically they still act as a vapor varrier, just not a totally effective one.

3) radiant barriers reflect radiated heat ewith up to 99% efficiency but have basically zero resistance to CONDUCTION (body to body heat transfer at points of contact - think heat transfer from your warm hand to a frozen cold drink can, or hot pavement heat transfer to the bottom of your feet) - so there needs to be an air gap between the radiant barrier and the hot item passing the heat to it, otherwise the heat will just pass through it by conduction. Therefore, applying it directly to the sheathing (above or below) or manufacturing it directly on the surface of the sheathing defeats its purpose, even though this is commonly done.

4) there is a lot of discussion, particularly in the professional design community, about attic radiant heat barrier effectiveness and problems. Because they are being installed on the bottom of the sheathing or underside of roof joists, they act as a heat trap for the energy being conducted through the roof which would normally radiate into the attic air or be transferred by CONVECTION (fluid flow heat transfer) to the attic air, and be vented through roof vents, ridge vents, gable vents, etc. By trapping that heat, they are causing the underside of the shingles and particularly the felt and sheathing to get a lot hotter than they otherside would, essentially changing it from a system where the shingle top surface might reach 120-180 F and the inside surface of the sheathing about 80-140F in the summer, to making the entire roof system equal to the outside surface temperature. This causes more rapid shingle deterioration and cracking, and makes the felt or plastic moisture barrier under the shingles brittle and subject to failure.

Also, any moisture above the radiant barrier (from roof leaks or humid air coming into the area) is prevented from evaporating by the attic airflow which would normally remove it, so it starts acting like a steamer. I have seen both wood and metal lofts and attics become a major mold farm in months because of this effect, and a couple of roofs which started sagging due to rotted sheathing within 2 years of reroofing with tightly adhered radiant barrier. Some radiant barriers are vapor-permeable to reduce the moisture issue, many are not, but few actually are effective in letting moisture freely escape.

Having seen these products in use, and having analyzed and specified building products for use from the Middle East to the Arctic for decades, and having a Masters in Arctic Engineering (a degree predominately in energy conservation and heat flow), my personal opinion is that these radiant barriers will be banned by code within 10-15 years for unheated (so-called "cold" roofs) roofs, because they just do not use the principles of thermodynamics correctly. For more info on this issue Google the following search phrase  - moisture trapping by radiant attic barriers       and read the government (not the manufacturer) literature on the issue.

5) Unfortunately, the right way to handle this issue is to put the radiant surface on the OUTSIDE of the house - by using reflective materials on the roofing material. This is already done with flat roofs, house trailers, and industrial structures by spraying with alumiunum paint, and a few brands offer reflective aggregate shingles that are slightly more reflective and radiant than normal shingles. People obviously do not like this reflective surface from an aesthetic standpoint, though with solar cells coming into more general use this may soon be more widely adopted. The idea should be to keep the solar energy from penetrating into the building envelope at all, not try to re-reflect it away after it has penetrated throguh the roof system.

The sprayed-in foam has a couple of issues you need to be aware of:

6) it needs to be the low-pressure expanding type mixed for use around window frames, as fully expanding foam can bow joists or trusses and pop drywall ceilings free as it expands, and non-expanding foam actually shrinks as it cures, leaving gaps for air and heat flow alongside the ceiling joists.

7) being closed-cell it is essentially impervious to moisture, so the vapor barrier on the house side has to be EXCELLENT (incuding sealingof all penetrations), or it will trap household moisture escaping into the attic and promote mold and rot in the ceiling drywall and joists.

8) it tends to bleed chemical fumes into the house for a long period of time (can be noticeable for years), which may be objectionable to some people from an odor or environmental standpoint, and especially should be considered if any residents have severe allergy issues or respiratory problems.

9) I emphatically recommend AGAINST use of sprayed-in foam between ceiling joists or truss members in any area that can have cold attic air that could cause moisture condensation in the insulation, though this is probably not a significant problem where you live, assuming your Dallas is the city in Texas. For essentially year-around air-conditioned homes in hot climates, the problem can actually be condensation of attic air moisture on and in the colder ceiling surface insulation and on cold attic runs of air conditioned air, so attic ventilation becomes a critical issue to remove the moisture before it condenses.

In summary, having seen an awful lot of attic moisture and thermal problems, my personal recommendation would be to ensure excellent sealing of the house from the attic, use normal UNFACED fiberglass insulation, and instead of a radiant barrier ensure adequate full-attic ventilation. If you decide to got with a radiant barrier, then I would recommend a perforated one, sloping up towards the sides a foot or two and stopping a foot or so clear at the sides so moist air under it can escape to the roof joist spaces and be vented from the attic. I have seen this done several times with a fine nylon net strung above the insulation in the attic, supporting the barrier, resulting in something very similar to the double-roof system used in bedouin tents, where airflow between the two layers keep the hot air away from the living space.

A couple of comments about what Jim said:

1) Regarding type of insulation, in cold winter environments: Cellulose and fiberglass are actually about comparable in R value when installed - blown in cellulose runs from 3.2-3.8 R value, fiberglass batt 2.9-4.3 R value depending on manufacturer and whether hig-density or low density, high-efficiency or standard, according to official Department of Energy publications. Measured values in attic test cases, in areas with a true winter, after 10 years showed a decrease from 3.4 (in the test case) down to 2.1 for cellulose, and 3.5 to 3.3 for fiberglass batt, due to packing or matting. In an attic environment, there WILL be condensation or frost on the insulation at some point during the year (assuming an area with true winters) and in highly insulated houses commonly for a substantial time period each winter. Fiberglass packs down slightly from that weight but mostly rebounds, cellulose packs down and mats and does not substantially recover, so over the years cellulose loses 1/3 to close to 1/2 its insulation value, fiberglass about 10%.

2) a note on radiation barriers attached to the bottom of the rafters - there are a lot of installers and homeowners making two major mistakes with this product that can cause major trouble: First, be sure to terminate it short of the eave openings. I have seen cases where it was carried all the way out to the fascia board, thereby blocking all airflow on the underside of the roof. Even carrying it all the way to the eaves along the bottom of the rafters will block off ventilation to the main attic area. You have to leave the air space between the rafters open to full airflow from the soffit/eave area ot the ridge vent. Second, do NOT run it continuous from eave to eave across the full width of the attic - leave a gap about a foot wide under the ridge vents so warm and moist air in the attic can vent through the ridge vent. Closing the ridge vent area off with the radiant barrier effectively puts a vapor barrier around the main attic area, causing retention of the moisture which WILL accumulate there, promoting mold.

Steve made a good point.  Also, while it isn't required to remove the old insulation you can check the ductwork, wiring, etc. with the old stuff removed,  You can also spray foam around all openings and holes in wall top plates to better seal your home as Steve was pointing out.  My concern is the potential for mold spores you mentioned in your question.  If you suspect there are any get a good company in to remove the old and clean the attic.  Another concern is asbestos.  Your home is old enough you could have it in there and that's worse than mold if released into the air.

Insulation reviews in Hermon

I'm the office manager for a pharmacy facility that suffered damaged insulation from a leaking skylight during a severe storm. The result was some hanging insulation, but also a mildew smell that several staff complained about - so I was eager to get it fixed quickly and professionally.
I went on Angie's List and contacted the top 3 providers for insulation repair (filtered by reviews) in addition to the original contractor who put in the insulation when the building was built - out of all four, only
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
came and inspected our damaged insulation promptly and provided a quote within a day.
The original contractor never responded to my calls - and I called about 3 times throughout the week following the storm.
I was actually surprised how disappointing the other Angie's List picks were - the top one felt it was OK to quote me over the phone without visiting our site, basing his estimate entirely off photos; when I asked about all the things
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
explained to me it was clear this other provider's quote was going to be very short. Even disregarding this, I needed a written quote for the insurance adjuster and this "top" provider didn't send one, even after being asked twice. The second provider on the Angie's List results didn't manage to send a written quote until a week later, blaming technical issues. Compared to

, who had it in my inbox the same day he inspected the building, these other contractors definitely come up short.
The actual job was done quickly and professionally.

came out personally because he recognized we are a secure facility, and wanted to supervise the job. I was also present to help move aside counters and shelving for the scissor lift, and stayed throughout the entire job.

and his worker draped the work areas closest to the the skylight with plastic, and
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
brought extra masks for our staff to use if anyone felt uncomfortable with the insulation dust in the air. I didn't use one, and I was closest to the work area, but some staff ended up asking for masks. At that point I opened up a door, placed a fan by it and left that going for the rest of the day - I haven't had any complaints or concerns brought to me since (I also feel fine).
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
himself stood below the insulation job the entire time, and he didn't have a

The job was finished within about 2 hours by one worker who clearly is an expert. Afterward,
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
made sure to sweep the areas clear and took all the old, damp insulation away. When everything was done, my co-worker and I inspected the work and he told me, "Yeah, I would definitely hire them again."
I couldn't be happier with the results - I just wish I didn't waste so much time trying to get other quotes! Thankfully I won't be looking around next time - for either my home or my job!

Never in my life have I encountered a company so bush-league.

I had issues with MassSave cancelling my appointment on the day-of that they were to come. I never even got a call to
let me know they were cancelling. They just no-showed and I wasted a vacation day. Fast forward a few weeks, I come across
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
at a faire. They bragged about how people who had terrible situations with MassSave turn to them
and have such a great experience. They went on about how they have the highest satisfactory rate. Reluctantly, I signed up for an assessment; after all I am looking for insulation to be done. I figured, it could not be worse than my experience with MassSave. Well, I was wrong,
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
is worse.
I own a two-family duplex and needed to have both sides done at the same time. I had this all set up in person to be done on 10/21/14; both units. A week after setting up the appointment I get a call: both units were not booked the same day and I would have to be home at two different times on two different weeks in order to have this done. There is absolutely no reason
to have to take time off twice for this. I call back and tell them to go pound sand. No way am I taking two vacation days for an energy audit. They messed up the scheduling and wanted me to deal with it.
I get a call back from
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
asking me if I would opt back in and keep my appointment if they could re-arrange schedules to give me the double block. Again, reluctantly, I agree. Basically, what went on here is
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
called the person who took my scheduled block to begin with and cancelled/asked them to switch days/times. Clearly, a business strategy they feel is appropriate…..
They got the other person to switch days or cancel all together, I am not sure.
Today is October 20th and they are supposed to come tomorrow October 21st. I just got a voicemail from them
cancelling all together. The day before the appointment they let me know! My boss is on International Travel and I cannot retract my Vacation Day. Yet again, these energy assessment companies provide amazingly horrible customer service. Yet again, these supposed “money saving” opportunities actually takes money away from me in the long run, without a service ever being done.
I called back to get some sort of answers.
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
picked up. I explained the whole history of events leading up to this very moment. How we were promised XYZ and instead got ABC. How we have been harassed multiple times over
inadequate scheduling on their end. He put me on hold and transferred me to

Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the other hand was absurdly rude. Any sense of
customer service does not exist with
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked

A completely classless operation they have running over there. I hope that no one ever opts into their service without looking them up first!

The primary work crew of

, Zeke, and
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
that was lead by
Hermon Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
always showed up early and were ready to work. They paid attention to details and worked in a professional manner. Toward the end of the project more workers, of the same ilk, were assigned to the project since old insulation removing took longer than expected to avoid mishaps in the attic and since it had to be bagged before being removed from the attic.
Early indications show that the increased insulation is paying off since the upper unit furnace doesn't come on during the night even on the recent 32 degree night. We set the thermostat to 72 degrees to insure the house is warm at bedtime and set it back to 68 degrees and it takes about 6 - 7 hours before the temperature drops to the level where the furnace starts up.
Hoping to see lower heating bill in the winter!!!

came in and had a few tests he had to run on our heating system before he started and once that was completed they started taking off the siding and drilling for the holes where the cellulose will be blown into. He also communicated to us beforehand any concerns he had as far as removing the siding especially where it was a cool fall morning that there could be some cracking. He said they would be very careful taking it off and they were. Not one piece was broken or damaged.
Throughout the day they worked diligently and was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. They did a very good job of keeping the work area clean as they worked. They also worked around all of my small bushes to ensure they didn't get stepped on or damaged during the work. He also gave me some knowledge of air leaks and the negative effect they have on utilities. I couldn't believe the statistics of what one 1/2" hole does to your energy efficiency. He said small holes add up fast and before you know it you left the equivalent of one window being open all winter long.

came to our home the day we placed a phone call to his company. This individual is a real gentleman with a very professional demeanor and a great listener, which is so very important I believe to homeowners. He intently listened to what we wanted to do with a back porch area to make it more weather-friendly and energy efficient, since it was always very cold in the winter time and extremely hot in the summer time. He recommended replacing the old windows with a brand of window called Polaris, which is a low-E energy window. We decided that we wanted to decrease the space of the windows in the room, i.e., two windows on two sides became one window, and three windows on one side became a two-sided casement window.

Please ask them to give you a reliable estimate of when they're going to arrive at your home the day they're going to start their job.

kept the project on schedule (technically, it ran one week behind by the end but this was because significant problems were uncovered when the old floor was removed; if you adjust for the time to address these issues, the project ran on schedule). Because this was a gut remodel with new lighting and plumbing service locations, and switching from baseboard heat to a toekick in the island, there were a lot of details and subs to coordinate. In addition, the centering of the window over the kitchen sink and fitting the cabinets perfectly (uppers and

The window was installed while the walls were down to the studs, yet when everything else was installed, the centering was precise to within 1/8" (in other words, perfect), and the cabinets, upper and lower, all lined up perfectly with the window and were centered/symmetrical around the window as well.
