MODULAR & MOBILE HOMES
in Lexington and Georgetown, KY
Weatherization Plus offers the right solutions for whatever type of home you have.
The methods of dealing with performance issues due to leaks and poor insulation vary depending on your home type. Modular and mobile homes have unique features that differ from those of site-built homes. Don’t trust your home’s comfort and energy efficiency to a one-size-fits-all solution.
Instead of an attic, mobile homes have a cavity between the roof and the living space ceiling. This cavity should be filled with insulation, but frequently it is not. Instead, what’s often there is a foam mattress-like product, about 3 to 4 inches thick, that doesn’t come close to the recommended R-value for Central Kentucky and leaves a 6 to 8-inch gap between the ceiling and the insulation.
The team at Weatherization Plus wants what’s best for your home. We understand the different insulation installation methods needed for modular and mobile homes, thanks to our many years of experience with both types of home construction.
Weatherization Plus has the experience and know-how to tackle mobile and modular home performance issues accordingly.
Ductwork Repair and Insulation Services
As with a site-built home, a mobile home’s crawl space is susceptible to animals and insects tearing the under-belly and causing damage, leaks, and disconnects to the duct system. Weatherization Plus has extensive experience repairing, sealing and insulating ductwork beneath mobile homes. Our crews can also repair or replace the belly-board when it becomes damaged. Leaky ductwork allows air from under the home to be distributed throughout the house. If you want to breathe cleaner air in your mobile home, call us today.
Too often in both modular and mobile homes, air sealing measures are either ignored or poorly executed. This greatly reduces comfort and energy efficiency, as the air moves into and out of the home in an uncontrolled manner.
Weatherization Plus can evaluate modular and mobile homes to determine the best method for increasing home comfort, health, and energy efficiency. And, since we aren’t a product-based company, we have a variety of products you can choose from to meet your home comfort and energy efficiency goals without going over your budget.
