Take An #InsulationVacation, Part 6: Texas

July 14, 2017

We’re off and running again, taking on the second leg of our Insulation Vacation! After a quick visit home to take a shower, do some laundry, and finally feed the kids, we are now back on the road and exploring Texas!

As the old saying goes, there are only two things certain in life: death and Texas. That could be why it’s illegal to swear in front of a corpse in Texas. The Lone Star State is the second largest state in the US, taking up almost 7.5% of the country’s total land mass. Texas is bigger than the entire country of Germany.

There are also more tornadoes in Texas than any other state, with an average of 139 twisters per year. There’s a scientific reason for this. Moist, warm air from the Gulf of Mexico collides with cooler dry air coming down from the Rockies. This creates the perfect climate for tornado formation.

Because Texas is huge, it should come as no surprise that climate types in the state vary wildly. The Northern Plains are prone to drought, dust storms and tornadic activity. The Trans-Pecos region is the driest area of Texas, where the desert is growing. In the Hill Country of central Texas, there are warm days and cool nights. The Hill Country is also susceptible to flooding. Out in the sub-tropical Piney Woods, it’s hot, humid, and attracts extratropical cyclones. South Texas includes both the wet Rio Grande Valley and the tumbleweed dusty lands we normally envision when we think of Texas.

As you can tell, Texas is the open range of insulation opportunity. Capitol Machine International has everything you need to tame the wild insulation needs of the people of Texas. We’ve got insulation spray machines and removal vacs for every application and climate zone possible.
