Insulation in attics and crawlspaces is the first line of defense when creating an energy efficient home. At EDGE Energy, we offer home insulation services to help you cut down on air leaks that rob your home of the warmth or cooling you have paid to create.
Before installing insulation in attics, we seal any gaps that could leak air from the conditioned living spaces below. We generally use loose-fill insulation in attics because it provides better coverage and is less expensive than batt insulation.
In the Maryland-Virginia-DC region, insulation in attics should be between R-38 and R-60. “R” stands for resistance to heat flow. The higher the number, the more effective the insulation.
Crawlspaces are typically a neglected and forgotten part of a home. Low levels of insulation, large moisture problems from ground sources, and air leakage are among the three biggest problems that we fix with proper crawlspace insulation. Our method for installing crawlspace insulation depends on whether the crawlspace is ventilated or unventilated. We work with both types of crawlspaces and will recommend the best approach for your specific problems.

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.
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 was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
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.
A friend recommended SunPower and Edge Energy and my expectations were exceeded. I have and will recommend both companies.
