Do These 3 Things to Save Big $$ This Winter

Temperatures are dropping, daylight is shorter & everyone is spending more time inside. It’s important to prepare your home for the coldest months of the year, to make it comfortable & more energy efficient. Here are some ideas which could save you big money!

  1. Replace furnace filters monthly

Check and replace your furnace filters on a monthly basis during the winter months. To check if a filter needs to be replaced, hold it up to the light. If light does not shine through, it is time for a new one.

  1. Switch ceiling fan blades

In the winter months, change your ceiling fan blades to move clockwise. It lifts the cool air to the ceiling and pushes the heated air down.

  1. Add insulation

To keep heat in and the cold out, add insulation to your attic. This is where you can usually find some of the largest opportunities to save energy in your home. Your local experts at Kinzler Construction Services can help identify inefficiencies in your home, such as air leaks & inadequate insulation.

Product Feature: Dens Element Barrier System

When a tornado ripped through Marshalltown last July, it took with it the roof and many walls of the building home to RACOM. The company controls the network for most of Iowa’s first responder radio communications. The entire building envelope had to be replaced, but the office couldn’t shut down operations during demo or reconstruction. Getting the building weather tight as quickly as possible was a top priority!

Kinzler Construction Services’ Distribution Division delivered 30,000 sq. ft of Dens Element sheathing. This was the perfect product for this tight timeframe because it eliminates the need for an external WRB-AB!

Project Profile: Waterproofing Minneapolis, MN

Waterproofing was an important consideration for General Contractor RJ Ryan when building this multi-tenant commercial space in the Bassett Creek area of Minneapolis, MN. Developers found a high water table on the site and came to Kinzler Construction Services for advice on a cost-effective waterproofing solution.

The experts at Kinzler recommended and installed GMX Ultra-Shield WB, a solvent-based polymer modified asphalt waterproofing membrane. We worked with the contractor to ensure this was the best option for this project’s specific application requirements and budgetary constraints.

We followed our proven process for quality installation by inspecting the completed job and grading our installers on the quality of their work.

Project Profile: Spray Foam Osklaloosa, IA

The unique design of this building in Oskaloosa, IA was not an issue for the problem-solvers at Kinzler Construction Services!

The lack of depth available in much of the framing led us to install closed cell spray foam in order to maximize the R-Value in each cavity. Our expert installers sealed everything up while maintaining uniformity of depth. The design also created challenges in achieving the code-required 15-minute thermal barrier over the spray foam by traditional means. We applied DC 315 Thermal Barrier Coating over any areas where the foam would have to be left exposed.

We followed our proven process for quality installation by inspecting the completed job and grading our installers on the quality of their work. This building now has a level of efficiency, safety and comfort that could not be matched by any other insulation application.
