Did you know that heating and cooling your home accounts for the majority of your monthly utility bills? Unfortunately, most homes in the Lawton and Wichita Falls area do not have adequate insulation or air sealing, unnecessarily boosting monthly energy costs.
The EPA estimates that homeowners can save an average of 15% on heating and cooling bills by air sealing their homes and adding insulation to attics, the floors over crawl spaces, and accessible basement rim joists. At Pippin Brothers, we are skilled in these important home upgrade projects–helping customers dramatically cut their energy use, while improving home comfort and air quality.

Attics Performance–Save Energy and Prevent House Rot
Air leaks in your attic increase heating and cooling bills by letting unconditioned air in and conditioned air out. They literally let your energy dollars slip through the cracks. Moisture can also enter through cracks, impacting home durability and indoor air quality. Unfortunately, most Oklahoma and Texas home attics are not properly air sealed and insulated, boosting monthly utility bills and creating long-term maintenance issues.
The EPA recommends air sealing attics and installing upgraded insulation to boost home performance. At Pippin Brothers, we can help advise you if air sealing and upgraded attic insulation will make a significant impact on your utility bills and home comfort, or view our blog post on how to determine if your attic is insulated for optimum home performance. Pippin Brother crews are skilled in both insulating and air sealing, and can get this important job done in just a couple days.
Crawl Spaces–an Integral Component of Home Performance
Crawl spaces are dark, musty, spaces that most homeowners avoid. Unfortunately, home efficiency and moisture issues in crawl spaces can easily go unnoticed, degrading home air quality, comfort, and energy efficiency.
When humidity levels are high, some common household allergens thrive. Dust mite droppings are a common allergy trigger, and dust mites populations thrive in humid environments. High mold and mildew counts can also triggers sneezing, runny noses, red eyes, and even asthma.
Protecting Your Health and Your Home
Did you know that the air quality inside your home is shaped by the air quality of your crawl space? In fact, much of the air you breath on the first floor of your home originated from below. This is because the buoyancy of warmer air is greater than cooler air, thus warmer air pulls air up through the crawl space and into your living spaces, degrading air quality. This is especially prevalent in the winter during the heating season.
Air Sealing, Moisture Protection, and Insulation
Did you know that a properly sealed, insulated, and moisture-protected crawlspace will increase comfort throughout the home? In fact, crawlspaces can have a large impact on home comfort.
A properly sealed, moisture-protected, and insulated crawlspace will increase comfort, save on energy costs, improve the durability of your home, and reduce the entry of moisture, radon, and other potential irritants or pollutants into the home.
