Blown-in Insulation

I got blown-in insulation for my house today. I hired a company called Universal Insulation, off the recommendation of Dave Duggins over at Central California Insulation. If you look earlier, you'll see that Dave helped me out when I was building my home theater panel trap. But CC Insulation only does commercial buildings, so Dave recommended I contact Jim at Universal Insulation.

The guy who came out to take a look and give me a quote, Kevin Byler, was very nice and courteous. He even took off his shoes before coming in the house without me asking. The main guy of the three-person team who did the insulation today also took off his shoes once he saw I preferred them to not walk on the carpet, and they ran tarps inside to keep the floor clean. They did a good job and I'm looking forward to much more comfortable summers and winters.

Although insulation may be good for the comfort in the summer and in the winter, I am more concerned about termites. It is likely after the insulation is introduced into the walls, it may be very difficult to kill those termites now, and you know, there will always be termites in CA even after the house has beem fumigated.
