Professionally Installing Home Insulation Products in Oceanside & North San Diego County, CA

When was the last time you thought about your home’s insulation? You may not know, but that doesn’t mean you’re alone. In fact, studies show that 90% of homes in the United States are under-insulated. So, whether you know your insulation hasn’t been updated in quite a while or you genuinely have no idea when it was last touched, give Major League Pest a call. We’re mainly known for pest control solutions in Oceanside and North San Diego County, California, but our insulation specialist is also quite skilled at installing, removing, and replacing home insulation. We’ll be happy to help you get a healthier, more comfortable, and energy-efficient home.

Home Insulation Services We Offer

Major League Pest can complete the following services at your North County home:

Attic Insulation

Attic insulation has the lowest up-front cost and quickest return on investment. Up to 35% of a home’s heat loss and gain is through the attic. The proper amount of attic insulation can also reduce heating and cooling costs up to 35%. We install TAP insulation because this is the only insulation that is licensed and approved to be advertised to control pests. It can only be sold by pest control companies and is installed by our insulation specialist.

Insulation Removal

Old insulation may need to be removed, especially when it has been saturated with pest feces or damaged by water or smoke. We’ll make sure your old insulation is safely removed and the attic vacuumed.

Air Sealing

Air sealing saves energy by stopping what is called the “chimney effect.” Air that has been heated or cooled can be drawn into the attic by leaks at the ceiling created by electrical, plumbing, venting, and lighting penetrations. This makes the house feel drafty and raises energy bills. We seal around all such penetrations.

Radiant Barrier Installation

Radiant barrier blocks up to 97% of the radiant heat that enters the home’s attic, thus reducing the heat in the attic by as much as 28%. That means less heat will get from the attic into the home.

Under Floor Insulation

Under floor insulation is installed when there is a crawl space under the floor. It helps to create a total thermal envelope by minimizing heat or cold that would otherwise come through the floor into the home.

Our 6-Step Insulation Process

Major League Pest’s home insulation services generally follow this sequence of events:

The Setup

All equipment is truck mounted, so there is only a three-inch hose that comes into your home. There are no blowing machines on your lawn or driveway.

Protection

To protect the walls and furniture and to keep dust to a minimum, plastic is placed on the floor and walls, and around the attic access.

Details

Insulation is attached to the back side of the attic access to ensure a complete insulation job.

Preparation

Attic prep work includes blocking and barriers around can lights and eave vents. A batt insulation wall is placed around the attic access to prevent insulation from falling into the home. Attic rulers are placed throughout the attic so the homeowner or any inspector can see how much insulation was added to the attic. Also, if work needs to be done in the attic, the disturbed insulation can be returned to its original level.

Installation

Blowing the insulation in the attic is a simple and safe process. It takes a minimal amount of time, usually only a couple of hours, and does not require the homeowner to leave their home during the process.

Quality Control

The R value refers to inches of insulation. For instance, R-30 fiberglass blown-in insulation is 11.1 inches and R-38 is 13.8 inches of insulation. It is important that the insulation is level throughout the attic to ensure the proper R value and energy savings benefits.

Why is Adding Insulation So Important for Your Home?

At Major League Pest, we can’t recommend monitoring your home’s insulation strongly enough. That’s because insulation can:

Reduce Your Energy Usage & Your Global Footprint

Energy costs are on the rise.  At least 40% of the heat loss or gain in a house is through the attic. Adding insulation to the attic can reduce energy usage up to 35%. Your home will not only be more eco-friendly, it will help you save up to 35% on your monthly energy bills as well.

Come With Low Up-Front Costs

Insulation has the lowest up-front cost and the quickest return on investment versus the other energy savings products on the market. Insulation will start paying for itself immediately and give a lifetime of savings.

Lead to Greater Indoor Comfort & A Healthier Environment

Adding insulation to the attic reduces noise and makes the indoor environment more comfortable. With less energy usage and formaldehyde-free insulation we reduce the amount of carbon emissions into our environment. That is good for all of us.

Benefits of TAP Insulation

Our insulation benefits include:

  • Potential savings on heating and cooling costs
  • Better control over infestations by 11 types of common pests
  • The ability to be installed over existing insulation or by itself
  • Eco-friendly construction, as it is made of 87% recycled materials

  • Noise insulation for a quieter indoor environment
  • A lifetime warranty from the manufacturer

Are you hearing things at night?

Rodent activity in your attic is extremely common as Rats and Mice love the warm shelter the space provides. Damage to wood and Electrical from gnawing, and eventual movement down walls and voids is a likely result.

Evidence of Rodent Feces and Urine odors are telltale signs that infestation exists, and Trapping, Exclusion and Replacement of soiled insulation is necessary.

Call now for a complete Rodent inspection and find out what condition exists on your home.

“I have been using Major League for a few years for general pest control and they have been great. They are friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and affordable. I started using them when I moved into my house because my neighbor recommended them. I have also used them for termite fumigation. While it’s not a fun process to go through, they made it as painless as possible and walked us through every step. If you need pest control service and/or termite extermination, I definitely recommend them.”

“They recently "prepped" my house including repairs and replacement of fascia boards, outside rafters, etc., prior to tenting the house in order to eliminate termites.

Not only were they very professional and competent; just as importantly, they were very courteous, and responsive to all questions that I asked.”
