Winter Proof Your Home with Insulation and Save Money on Heating Bills

Posted in Owens Corning Blown-in Insulation

According to the US Department of Energy, roughly 43% of all the energy we use in our homes is attributed to heating and cooling. So it stands to reason that the better insulated our homes our, the less energy we need when heating and cooling. Proper insulation can help keep heat in during winter months, and cold out during the winter. There are many issues in a home that contribute to poor energy efficiency, such as old or poorly sealed windows and doors. But to get one of the biggest bangs for the buck in energy savings, make sure you properly insulate your home.

Trim A Seal of Indiana home improvement, offers blown in insulation by Owens Corning. We use the AttiCat® installation system which adds tiny air pockets to the fiberglas insulation to help keep it from settling. And since the insulation won’t settle, it retains its energy-saving R-value better over time.

We proudly offer the highest quality energy saving products to make your home comfortable year round, plus help you use less energy, save money, and protect the environment.  Need insulation, new windows or doors installed?

Posted in Gutter Helmet

Gutter De-icing System Protects Your Home

HH  2 AfterWinter means snow and ice and that can spell trouble for gutters if too much ice builds up. Gutters can be weighed down by heavy ice causing them to tear away from your roof. Another  common problem that occurs are ice dams. The Helmet Heat is a heat induction system that goes over your gutter system to melt ice and snow and eliminate winter build up on gutters and the potential of being hit by ice hanging off your roof and gutter system. This product was designed to prevent common damage and snow related hazards.

The Helmet-Heat is comprised of 3 heat cables securely fastened to the gutter and Gutter Helmet. The heat strip evenly distributes heat throughout the gutter system to melt ice. The system will eliminate ice 8-10” inches from the nose of the Gutter Helmet, ensuring that your entire home drainage system will be ice-free. Helmet Heat can be installed onto an existing Gutter Helmet system or on an entirely unprotected home. Call Trim A Seal today for more information.

Things to Consider When Replacing Your Home's Windows

Posted in Replacement windows, Window Contractor Indiana


Replacement Windows
replacement windows

Got cold drafty windows? With the type of winter we are expecting this year in Northwest Indiana, old windows can make winter seem more harsh and cost you more money. Windows that aren't sealed properly or are old and inefficient can account for 35 to 40 percent of a home's heat loss. With heating bills on the rise, that can translate into big money. 

Installing new replacement windows can be costly, but new windows should lower heating and a/c bills resulting in greater monthly utility savings. When it comes to home improvements, replacing windows should be at the top of the priority list. Window replacements can offer you a high return on investment in both savings heating and a/c bills, but also in the value that they add to your home.

How do you know when it’s time to replace old windows and start shopping for new energy efficient windows?

  • Frost appears on the inside of window panes
  • You feel a cold draft coming in through closed windows
  • Windows don't open and close with ease
  • Windows panes are separating from window or wood is rottting
  • The windows haven't been replaced for 20 years or more
  • Windows are single pane (instead of double)
  • One big reason to consider window replacement is simply the high cost of heating bills.

Two things to consider when shopping for windows: 1) the style of the window is important. It can affect the overall look and value of your home. 2) Choose the right window for your climate. Vinyl replacement windows are a good option for both warm and cold climates because they insulate well.

Call Trim A Seal of Indiana today for a free, in home consultation and estimate. We have a wide variety of top window brands to choose from including Sunrise, HomeGuard, Armaclad and more. Call 800-217-6355 today.
