Snug

In what was by far the most painless home-improvement job I've ever experienced, the Clean Energy Works and GreenSavers contractors completely insulated my formerly-uninsulated house this past week.

November has been too mild so far to turn the heat on, but even so, I notice two distinct improvements already: when I wake up in the morning, my bedroom doesn't actually feel like the outdoors--there's a kind of snugness to it; and the place is quieter. Honestly, I didn't realize how hollow and echoey it was around here till all the hollows were fluffified.

The contractors found crevices and gaps to insulate that I didn't even know were there. They blew loose insulation into exterior walls from below by putting holes into the sill, rather than tearing up my interior walls. There's only a little bit of touch-up painting to do.

They replaced some old wiring in the attic crawl space so they could insulate up there. They put fancy sealing strips around the drafty mudroom door. They plugged the gaps around electrical sockets and light switches. I mean, the place is snug.

My little house is so happy! And so am I!
