FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

MILEX 2.0

What is MILEX 2.0?


MILEX 2.0 insulation is a new, revolutionary type of blow-in, loose-fill insulation made exclusively from agricultural Sorghum. MILEX™ has very special insulating properties, increased thermal resistance, is produced without any chemical processing and is 100% green and renewable. It's just plain better!




What is "Thermal Puff" technology?


MILEX™ "Thermal Puffs" are the secret to it's outstanding thermal resistance properties. Each puff contains thousands of tiny air pockets that create an amazing thermal blanket. And since MILEX™ has virtually zero shrinkage, those tiny air pockets remain intact which allows MILEX™ to retain maximum insulation value over a lifetime.




How is MILEX™ with insects, rodents or fire?


MILEX™ performs great! The reason is through our patented manufacturing process, all of the sugars in the sorghum are removed, thus, rendering it a "non-food" source. Which means pest, or other insects, are naturally not attracted to it. We also use natural occurring Boric Powder (i.e. Boric Acid) during our curing process which makes MILEX™ flame retardant and provides additional insect and rodent repellent.





Attic Inspections

How long does an Attic Inspection take?


On average, about 20 mins. This depends on acess to, and through, the attic as well as your attic's actual square footage.




On an existing home, should the old insulation be removed?


In most cases, no. Unless there is a known insulation allergy of fiberglass or cellulose insulators that would require the removal. In our professional opinion, there is no need to go to the expense of removal. It will cost more just to remove the old insulator than it will to get 8-10 inches of MILEX™ blown on top. However, we can remove the old insulation should you want to.




How far is your schedule booked out?


Depending on the time of year, we can typically schedule an estimate within 24-48 hours and insulate your home or business within a week to ten days.





Installations

How long will it take to insulate my attic?


This depends entirely on how many inches of insulation you need and the square footage of your attic. An average 2000 sq.ft. home generally takes 3-4 hours from start to finish, but can vary depending on the layout of your attic. Rarely will it take more than 1 day.




Will you move or make repairs to any of my air conditioning air ducts?


No. Our Insulation Technitions are not licensed HVAC Contractors. However, should we notice any ducts with minor loose wrapped insulation or minor tears we will be happy to re-tape those areas with duct or foil insulation tapes.




If I need air conditioning duct work (or repairs) done in my attic, should I have it done before I insulate?


Yes, this is recommended. In many homes, sections of your air ducts may get covered with insulation. This helps keep your air cooled much better, but a little more difficult to have to uncover in order to move or service the duct.
