The groundhog has spoken. We were recently reminded by a rodent that winter is far from over in the Pioneer Valley and the warmer Spring weather is still at least 6 weeks away. Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his burrow and quickly retreated, meaning we’ve got another few weeks of snow storms, frigid temperatures and long underwear.
Have you ever wondered why wearing jeans in the winter keeps you so warm? Denim acts as a great barrier in the colder months, especially here in Pioneer Valley. Denim insulation is one of Energia’s alternative insulation options, and has become a popular choice for homeowners who need their attics and walls insulated. If you’re looking to find healthier and more sustainable alternatives to insulate your home or building, consider denim.
Having great indoor air quality has quickly become a priority for many home and building owners in Western Massachusetts. As things like “Sick Building Syndrome” become more well-known, the Energia team is ready to respond. Our weatherization specialists recognize that the quality of the air we breathe indoors can cause allergies and illness as a direct result of dirty or inadequate air ventilation systems. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air.
