Life is peaceful and scenic in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of West Hills, but it can also be a bit on the warm side and with too-high energy bills during the hot summer months.
West Hills has one of the highest percentages of residents aged 35 and above in the whole L.A. Area, and it also has many older homes, which is unsurprising given its historic background. Uncomfortably high or low temperatures are particularly impactful (and sometimes even dangerous) for our elderly population, and old, un- or under- insulated houses don't help matters any.
At Pure Eco, we have been improving the energy efficiency and home comfort levels of West Hills homes for many years, and we can assist you with your home energy upgrade as well!

Our Offered Services
Pure Eco can handle all home insulation, ventilation, and other projects related to your attic or to making your home maximally energy efficient.
Our offered services include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Air Sealing & Attic Cleaning
Before any new insulation can be installed or before your attic can be renovated and turned into a spare bedroom, home office, or other "usable room," there are preparatory steps that must be taken.
If your attic has a significant amount of air leakage, it can greatly reduce the effectiveness of your insulation; thus, it is wise to first locate and eliminate air leaks before insulating is put in.
We at Pure Eco can inspect your attic or other to-be-insulated spaces for air leaks. We know where to look and the tell-tale signs of an air leak (like dusty or sunken batts), and we have specialized tools like fog machines and blower doors to assist in finding air leaks as well.
Once located, we can seal all air leaks without delay. Caulks and other sealants will plug up small cracks and holes. OSB board, plywood, or rock sheet can cover larger leakage points. And we can use metal sheeting plus heat-proof caulk around chimneys, chimney caps and vent covers, weather-stripping around entry hatches, and other techniques to eliminate all drafts.
- Insulating & Re-insulating
There are homes in West Hills with un-insulated attics or that need new insulation in walls, ceilings, basements, or crawlspaces. And there are homes without old, ineffective insulation or inadequate amounts of insulation. There are even sometimes attics with asbestos-containing vermiculite insulation in them that needs to be safely removed before re-insulating.
At Pure Eco, we can help you select the type and brand of insulation that will best fit your needs. We can then install it to exact manufacturer's recommendations and get the highest possible R-Value out of it for you.
Batts is the most popular and most affordable type of home insulation on the market today. These long paper or foil backed rolls of fibrous materials (normally either fiberglass of cotton) fit snugly into standard-sized inter-stud spaces.
Batts are adequate to most insulation needs, and can be doubled up (with removal of inter-batt vapor barrier to prevent condensation build-up) to get extra R-Value.
The biggest drawback of batts is that they can't compactly fill in spaces like blown (loose fill) insulations can. Blown insulation is especially common on attic floors but is also used inside of ceilings and walls. Loose-fill will compactly fill any space by conforming to the filled space.
At Pure Eco, we have the insulation trucks, blowers, and fill hoses necessary to quickly, compactly, and evenly install loose fill insulation in any part of your home.
We can also install Roxul soundproof insulation to soundproof a particular room or more of your home, as desired. Roxul's unique rock-wool material (made of natural stone and steel slag) is denser than other insulations and gives you a huge R-Value.
Roxul will absorb or diminish sound waves to keep your baby room, media room, or other room exceptionally quiet and peaceful. And Roxul is also resistant to corrosion, mold/mildew, and fire. Roxul has the Greenguard® stamp of approval and is 100% eco-friendly!
- Radiant Barrier Installation
Pure Eco can also install a radiant barrier under your roof line (on the attic ceiling), which will "bounce out" radiant heat from the sun that shoots through into your attic.
When heat builds up in your attic, it can seep out from there into the lower parts of your home, creating a less comfortable environment during those hot Southern California summers and upping your energy bill.
Radiant barriers are coated with aluminum or another highly reflective material that reflects away radiant heat as it comes in. Most barriers will have multiple layers for maximum effectiveness. We at Pure Eco can help you select the brand/type of radiant barrier that best fits your needs and budget and then install it 100% in conformity to manufacturer's directives.
- Rodent Proofing
A quarter of all home rodent infestations begin in the attic, then spread from there. When welcoming entry points and weak spots that rodents and other animals can chew or claw through exist in your roof or attic walls, that's just asking for an infestation. And insects, bats, and other pests will take advantage of the invitation as well.
And given that rodents will leave droppings all over your attic floor, spread disease, stain your wood and insulation, and lurk about threatening to bite you, it is well worthwhile to get them out and keep them out!
We can inspect your attic for holes, cracks, gaps, and weak spots and then cover or seal them all up. We can use metal mesh where necessary to prevent rodents from scratching their way in. And installing vent covers and a chimney cap on your roof, trimming back overhanging tree branches, setting traps, and cleaning up the mess, are also a part of the rodent proofing process.
- Other Services
Besides what's already been mentioned, we at Pure Eco offer a number of other valuable services.
These include installing new vents and fans to improve home ventilation and air quality, cleaning out and insulating crawl spaces, and installing a UV cleanser and air scrubber on your furnace to kill off mold spores, cut down on dust/pollen, and lower dust build up in your furnace.
