The attic is one of the primary sources of air leakage in just about every house, allowing hot air to infiltrate into the house during the summertime, and letting warm, conditioned air to escape from the house during the wintertime. While most consumers think that insulation is all that is needed to solve their attic issues, the truth of the matter is insulation does not stop air movement, it only slows it down. EDGE Energy’s attic weatherization techniques include a blower door guided air-sealing combined with insulation. Can you tell from the picture which house has not had their attic weatherized by EDGE? Hint: The one with no snow on the roof demonstrates how much heat is escaping from the attic.
Our trained weatherization specialists will do a thorough inspection of your attic and air-seal any places that air might leak through, including top plates, knee walls, pipe and wire penetrations, chase ways, etc. Next, we will install blown cellulose insulation up to recommended levels (R-49 or about 15 inches of cellulose), and insulate your attic hatch as well. If any duct-work exists in your attic space, we will also seal and insulate it if necessary, as well as installing attic ventilation. This is one weatherization technique that you can feel the results from right away!

A friend recommended SunPower and Edge Energy and my expectations were exceeded. I have and will recommend both companies.
Edge Energy clearly prefers installing SunPower systems. They were professional and technically informed. They were reasonable and accommodating with contractural matters. The installation crews were polite and courteous. They did neat work and were very competent. They were extremely responsive to address problems that arose. I would recommend them without reservation. They put a good face on SunPower.
Edge Energy was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
I was completely satisfied by Edge Energy. They have consistently designed and reliably installed strong performance energy innovations for my home. Indeed the only reason that I installed SunPower panels was due to their recommendation.
Edge Energy responded quickly to my inquiries and provided clear answers. The technicians who oversaw the installation process were professional and I learned a great deal while interacting with them.
