The rising energy prices in Minnesota have driven the need for home and business owners to search for cost effective ways to lower their monthly energy bills and save money. Jerry Braegelmann, the president of Intex Insulating Company, Inc. in Cold Spring, MN has three things he would like you to know, before you spend your money on insulation.

Intex has been insulating homes, commercial and municipal buildings within a 150 mile radius of St. Cloud, Minnesota since 1977 and has always kept on the leading edge of technology and science. You must first consider that your home or business requires an air-tight building envelope to be energy efficient. You can not simply add more insulation and have a totally energy efficient building.

The second thing that Intex wants you to know is that a building’s envelope needs to function as a complete system; balanced ventilation in the attic is also an extremely important part of that system.

The third thing you need to know is that there are many different types of insulation and each one has its own unique advantages for each specific application. Intex installs all different types of insulation, because they know that every insulation job is a one-of-a-kind custom job that has precise requirements for maximum efficiency and value.

The motto at Intex is: “Do it right or not at all.” This means that they will use their technical knowledge of building envelopes, wall systems, roof structures, air sealing, ventilation and insulation to provide you with the best complete system available.
