Cooling your home during the hot Los Angeles summers, or heating it during cold snaps, will be far more costly and inefficient without proper insulation in your walls, ceilings, and attics. And yet, the fact is, there are still many homes and businesses in the L.A. Area that are un- or under- insulated.
At Pure Eco, we understand how important it is for you to lower your energy bill, increase the speed at which you can lower/raise your indoor temperatures to a comfortable level, and minimize your carbon footprint to help the environment.
We have been helping home and business owners in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California upgrade their energy efficiency for many years now, and we will know how to do the same for you in a fast, affordable, and optimally effective manner.

Why Invest in New Insulation?
The most obvious reason to invest in insulating your residential or commercial building is to create an effective barrier between indoor and outdoor air and temperatures, so that you're not heating/cooling a building in vain. Running AC, for example, in a "leaky building" is a bit like pouring water through a sieve. Only that's money instead of water that's going down the drain!
But there are additional, less thought of, benefits as well. First, you run your AC or heater less and it doesn't have to work as hard to do its job. That means it will last longer, delaying the day it needs to be repaired or replaced.
Also, installing new insulation, along with eliminating air leaks, will make it faster to heat/cool your home/business. That means you spend less time waiting in discomfort before the indoor air temperature finally gets comfortable.
And finally, adding insulation will increase the resale value of your property. The ROI is very high with insulation since it is something that every prospective buyer will want (and will probably ask about.)
Our Insulation Services
We at Pure Eco are an insulation contractor that can install a wide range of insulation types and in any part of your building. We can quickly assess how much insulation you will need to accomplish your energy efficiency goals, explain to you the benefits of different types and brands of insulation products, and give you an accurate no-obligation quote.
Attic insulation jobs are by far the most common. The reason is simple: most of the heat in a building will escape through the roof, via the attic (if the building has an attic.) And a lot of heat gets trapped in the attic and then pushes its way down into the living spaces, which is a major problem during those scorching L.A. summer months when you are trying to cool down your living space.
If your attic is currently uninsulated, you can save as much as 20% on your energy bill by insulating it. Plus, good insulation can prevent out of control condensation and molding/mildewing in your attic and reduce noise levels (especially from jets flying overhead, which is not an uncommon occurrence in L.A.)
An attic cleaning, removal of any old and ineffective insulation, air sealing, rodent proofing, installation of a radiant heat barrier (to reflect heat back out of your attic), and installation of fans and vents are all additional services we offer. We can do a full "attic makeover" that will make your attic and house extremely energy efficient and even transform your attic into usable living space.
Basement and Crawl Space Insulation
Another very common part of the home to get new insulation is the basement and/or crawl space. These lower reaches of the building often get too cold, and the floors just above them also get cold and uncomfortable to walk on during chilly mornings.
Installing insulation on the ceiling of your crawl space, just below your floor boards; or on walls and ceilings of your basement; will solve these problems.
It will also create a barrier to help keep allergens, mold spores, insects, or even rodents from getting up into your home via the crawl space or unfinished basement. And there will, of course, be energy savings as well and the possibility of putting basement space to use as a new bedroom or a home office.
Walls, Ceilings, Windows, and Doors
Not just the top and bottom of your home, but the walls, interior ceilings/floors, and all openings also need to be optimized for energy efficiency.
New buildings or additions can have batts insulation easily inserted between the joists and studs while being built. With existing walls that lack insulation, blown in insulation is normally easier to place. Either way, the R-value is about the same, and it can lower your energy bills by a lot.
Not only will heat have a harder time traveling through your exterior walls, but by insulating interior walls, you can make it easy to efficiently heat individual rooms without heating the whole house.
Blown insulation is also often used in ceilings in multi-story buildings to slow the loss of heat between upstairs and downstairs. But batts can be used there, too, if preferred. And reinsulating around (and weather sealing) doors and windows can also be a key way to improve your building's energy efficiency.
Types of Insulation We Install
At Pure Eco, we are familiar with numerous brands and specific types of insulation products. However, most of what we work with falls into one of three main categories:
- Batts insulation. This can be made of fiberglass or cellulose, either of which work about as well. Batts is perfect for fitting between standardly spaced studs and is the most affordable (and most popular) form of insulation on the market. In many situations, batts are adequate or even ideal.
- Blown insulation. Blown in (loose) insulation is very popular for attic floors and for filling in ceilings and walls. It's strength is that it compacts more tightly against surfaces than batts. It does cost a little more, however.
- Soundproof insulation. When you want to soundproof a room, perhaps because it will be a baby's sleeping room or a media room, ROXUL soundproof insulation is the best answer. It is extremely dense and strongly muffles both impact and resonating sounds. It is also fireproof, mold-proof, and has a huge R-value.
Services Related to Insulation
Besides installing or replacing insulation itself, we at Pure Eco also handle all manner of "peripheral" services related to insulation and energy efficiency.
This includes cleaning attics and crawlspaces, air sealing attics or other parts of your home, cleaning, replacing, or relocating ductwork, rodent proofing, conducting energy audits, installing radiant barriers, improving your home or business' ventilation system, and dealing with a host of other tasks that come up in relation to other projects.
We are always ready to help you with the full gamut of projects that have anything at all to do with insulation and energy efficiency.
The Insulation Installation Process
At Pure Eco, we know how to approach each project in an organized, step by step way that saves time, avoids mishaps, and ensures a top-quality result.
We begin by inspecting the area to be insulated. We first must prepare the space in order to get you your maximum R-value and overall value. That may mean air sealing small holes and large gaps in your attic, replacing a moldy rafter board, or cleaning away rat droppings. Whatever it is, whatever it takes, we get things ready before laying the insulation down.
We then install the insulation in an orderly way. With blown-in, that means working across the floor boards so insulation falls into each row, and checking that it's compact and evenly distributed. With batts, that means ensuring a snug fit for each piece, creating a solid barrier, and moving from one end of the work area to the other.
We never consider the job done until we have cleaned up and double checked everything is correct. And we make 100% customer satisfaction our regular barometer of "job well done."
