Heat Loss on the Conventional Insulation is Much Greater than the RVI System
I have two houses on my property. The first one was built 3 years ago and has conventional insulation. There is no doubt, as it can easily be seen, that snow melts on the roof of the 3-year-old house but does not melt on the RVI roof. Which tells me that the heat loss on the conventional insulation is much greater than the RVI system. Also, I’ve noticed that there were times in the RVI house that the furnace would not run for long periods of time, as the house would hold heat very well.

Extremely impressed with all aspects of RVI’s work
I was extremely impressed with all aspects of RVI’s work and even more so with the quality of the end product. We have been heating our house now with propane through the past two winters and our average home heating index (BTU/HDD/SF) is approximately 3.2, which I am extremely happy with, especially given the number and size of north facing windows in our home. I can’t recommend RVI enough and strongly encourage folks to consider them, even if they are not associated with their home builder/contractor.

RVI’s attention to detail has allowed me to live in a warm home all winter
Personally, I was very impressed at the time that Sam took to explain how BIBS works and why it is better than traditional insulation. I was also very impressed with the personal level of attention at the job site. Before the house was ready to be insulated, Sam stopped out to make sure the framing was ready and nothing would delay them once they started. Once the project was complete, I got to put it to action during these cold northern Wisconsin winters.
I have a wood burning fireplace and when I light a fire in the morning, the house is still warm enough when I get home from work that the furnace did not have to start up. It is much the same overnight with the heat. When I wake up, the house has only dropped a few degrees from when I went to bed, even though the fire barely has any hot coals left.
RVI’s attention to detail has allowed me to live in a warm home all winter. Also, in the summer, the humidity stays down and the temperatures stay low. I don’t even need to have an air conditioner. Thank you for your attention to detail and personal attention to help create a house that will stay well insulated for my lifetime and not deteriorate like traditional insulation.
