Insulation Services in Harrisonburg

We’ve been in business since 1995, offering high-quality insulation and indoor air quality services. Our extensive background in home building allows us to solve numerous issues you may be experiencing in your Harrisonburg home, like drafty rooms, high energy bills, and more. 

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is the all-in-one insulation and air sealing product that’s perfect for Central Virginia homes. Responsible House offers both open-cell and closed-cell spray foam, which offer a wide variety of benefits like improved air quality and a strengthened home structure.  

Attic Insulation & Conditioned Attics

Unconditioned attics are a common source for energy loss in a home and are one of the most important areas to insulate. At Responsible House, we have found that attic insulation is most effective when it’s installed underneath your roof deck. This process of creating a “conditioned attic” improves comfort, efficiency, and even helps you maintain healthy humidity levels in your home. 

Crawl Space Repair

Homes in Harrisonburg are vulnerable to flooding and moisture issues, which can spread throughout your living spaces and cause unhealthy indoor air. We offer several crawl space repair services—including crawl space encapsulation—that can keep the lower levels of your home dry and protected from the elements. 

Indoor Air Quality Solutions

High humidity, moisture, and even daily activities like cooking or cleaning can all contribute to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) in a home. Responsible House specializes in providing reliable IAQ services that solve the problem at the source rather than only providing a temporary fix, including energy recovery ventilator (ERV) installation. 

Air Sealing

Sealing up gaps and cracks found throughout your home is one of the most effective ways to reduce energy loss. In addition to the energy savings, air sealing also provides moisture control and helps to improve your indoor air quality. At Responsible House, we use spray foam for air sealing because it both insulates and air seals, giving you two services in one product.

Home Energy Audits

A home energy audit is the best way to get a comprehensive look into your home’s performance. This in-depth analysis allows us to pinpoint where inefficiencies are and create a plan of action to effectively solve any issues.

Blower Door & Duct Blaster Testing

If you’re building a home in Harrisonburg, blower door and duct blaster testing is required to meet local building codes. The team at Responsible House can help make sure your project stays on time and budget while ensuring that it’s code-compliant.
