Okay… so, it is harmless fun! THIS TIME 😀 Please NOTE! There are some key things that you should know BEFORE you click on facebook links like that!
Notice the URL: EN.SUCCESSTESTS.COM
This is telling you that you are going to the ENGLISH version of a multi-language website. See the “EN” Most of these “tests” are published from overseas companies that are all about collecting your data. Typically, that collection is for nefarious uses!
Notice the Bait!
The old phrase fits, “If it sounds too good to be true, it isn’t.” Of course, these clicks are viewed as harmless fun. They are usually not. In fact, they most likely are dangerous.
Now… PLEASE share this and prevent others from making the same mistakes 😀

As a HVAC contractor, you are already in people’s attics and wall systems. You know that more insulation is typically needed when you are crawling through their attic. We help HVAC contractors enter into the insulation business.
With an investment in a blowing machine (typically $5,500), you can add additional fiberglass, cellulose, rockwool, even sheep’s wool into your contract.
Unlike the HVAC industry, installing insulation is simple. You already know the basics of ventilation and your customers will benefit by working with only one contractor.
See this page to find a flyer ready to hand your customer with an evaluation checklist for your customers.
Contact us today for a quote on insulation machine equipment. We sell blowers and vacuums to add a well-rounded service to your HVAC company.
A common question that comes our way is, “Can your insulation vacuum remove fiberglass batts?” We get this question because of spurious claims by some and a video (on YouTube no longer posted). More
Every blower and vacuum are assigned unique serial numbers. These numbers identify the version of machine you own. More
Are you looking to get into the insulation business or expand your existing one? Here is a trailer package that is ready for work. The generous-sized trailer will hold a ton of material and have plenty of room for the following equipment:
- Low hours Standard CM2400 Cool Machine Insulation Blower
- 2 – 12 amp blowers
- 12″ airlock
- Used one-time, CoolVac 12 Insulation Removal Vacuum

Having been an insulation contractor, one of my greatest needs was accurate estimating software. My excel spreadsheets became quite unmanageable and just one faulty formula meant that I either overbid or underbid a job. Both are very costly mistakes!
Whether you do take-offs directly from a blueprint or field notes, this software will help an insulation contractor develop accurate estimates, saving time and helping you prevent errors.
This software works well as…
- A standalone product
- Integrates with Quickbooks
- Integrates with your Blueprint Takeoff software

Insulation Removal Vacuums go through abuse. The obvious problems are caused by the foreign objects that are sucked through the hose (nails, pieces of junk, even brick pieces) from the attic.
The SILENT killer of a vacuum is failure to maintain the vacuum. Dust gathers around the engine, unlike most applications. While extracting the insulating materials, they create enormous clouds of dust. Here are some tips and videos on maintaining and tuning up your insulation removal vacuum machine. More
Dense packing with fabric is an excellent way to see if the cavity is filled with insulation material. Standard, wood framing makes it easy to staple the fabric. However, what happens when you are faced with steel construction? The usual approach is to glue the fabric to the studs. This requires you to let the glue set and return to fill the cavity. Here is a better alternative!
Insulation Innovators developed metal strips that provide a nice, clean and tight fabric wall. These strips are screwed to either wood or steel and will make the best possible stretch for dense packing. Here is why they excel over the traditional staple and glue methods:
- Stapling fabric requires many staples. They are placed about every 1 to 2 inches for maximum hold. With the fast strip, only three screws, on average, can hold the strip in place.
- Eliminates expensive stapler failure. Automatic staplers are the choice of many insulation professionals. For example, the Joseph Kihlberg stapler is considered the industry’s best. It is hundreds of dollars. The stapler requires maintenance of the seals and pistons which cost at least $80 to replace.
- Allows for “glue & screw” method for drywall installation. If you use fabric, then the gluing of drywall to the stud is compromised. This method creates a surface so that drywall can still be glued to it.
- Prevents bulging. No matter how good an insulation professional installs the fabric, there are bound to be bulging throughout the job. These strips create a tight fit and prevent the fabric from bulging.
