Description

For more than 30 years, Houle Insulation Inc., a Minnesota based insulation contractor, has been re-insulating homes in Minnesota just like yours. A better insulated home is more energy efficient, comfortable and quiet. It will save you money on utility bills for years to come. And, by using less energy to heat and cool your home, you reduce the negative impacts on the environment caused by energy use. Houle Insulation Inc. specializes in re-insulating existing homes; sidewalls, attics, bypass sealing and blower door testing in the state of Minnesota. Blowing cellulose insulation into your walls and floors, and sealing attic bypasses can reduce high heating and cooling bills, ice dams and drafty rooms. Some other problems homeowners are faced with are frost, mold and water damage to ceilings. The discomforts of a poorly insulated home are often wrongly blamed on furnace and air conditioning problems when the actual cause is the insulation or installation of the insulation. You could save significantly on your heating and cooling bills by having attic bypasses sealed and insulating your walls and attic to adequate levels....

Exactly as the same as the first time I air sealed my attic in my previous house. Last year when we decided to sell our house I was inspecting my house as I would have if I was purchasing it. I noticed a small (1/4") gap between the master bathroom vent fan grill and the ceiling. I could not adjust it. Upon further inspection I realize it was because the foam that was installed when my attic was a...

I can't really speak to the quality of the work yet - I haven't really noticed a difference. They guys who did the work were perfectly nice. I used this company because they were on the approved list for the insulation rebate. They were the most expensive quote I received, but with the rebate, I made it work. It took a long time to get the work scheduled, I took the day off work when the date came...

They explained what they would do and how they would do it. They were very professional. Taped off the area they were working in so whole room didn't get insulation and dust all over. They were done before I expected it and cleaned up everything . Would use again and would recommend them to others.

After a snafu where roofers covered over our bathroom vents we needed to be sure that issue was fixed as well and upgrade our attic insulation. Todd's consultation was very educational . He gave rationales for all of his suggestions. It did take a long time to get the work done. We had the proposal done Mid March and work was not done until end of May ( NOT related to our availability) . They clea...

I want to thank Arne and his crew from Houle Insulation Inc for the fantastic job they did on the removal and installation of insulation in my attic and basement rim joists. First off I got bids from at least 6 different vendors and all of those were rated high and were Xcel certified for rebates. One of them (I won’t name, but they specialize in “green” foam insulation) didn’t even inspect the at...

Everyone we met was very kind and since there was a mixup with the utility company, Arne even came back a second time to conduct a blowdoor test. We really appreciated their understanding and professionalism!

Houle did an exceptional job with the project of insulating a old house and getting our home comfortable and lowering our heating costs. Todd did an excellent job of explaining what we need and what we didn't and came out a couple of times as the projects were on a different time table. We did have a hiccup with the pricing, however Arne was super professional and honored the verbal pricing we agr...

Very well, they were on time and kept a close eye on how every wall inside the house was tolerating the pressure of the insulation being blown in and adjusted whenever necessary. We did discover one small issue after they left and once I contacted them, they responded immediately and were able to fix it within 24 hrs of my call.
