Take an #InsulationVacation, Part 8: Alabama

July 31, 2017

If there’s one thing we love more than selling insulation blowers and removal vacs, it’s a good game of golf. With that in mind, our Insulation Vacation has arrived in Alabama, where 468 holes and eleven courses await those who love the links. But there’s more to love about Alabama than golf. How about space?

Huntsville is known as Rocket City. During the Space Race, scientists at the Marshall Space Flight Center created the Saturn V engine that propelled the first men to the moon. Since then, Huntsville has played a vital role in the space program. A popular destination for tourists is the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, which displays rockets, boosters, and artifacts of the glory days of the space program.

If space isn’t your place, there are certainly weirder things for you to see in Alabama. How interesting does a ginormous rooster made from car bumpers sound? What about the World’s Largest Catfish, which is an amazing 28 feet long? Maybe you’d enjoy the Boll Weevil Monument in downtown Enterprise. All of these sights are available for you to enjoy in Alabama.

Before you plan an Alabama vacation, though, be aware: Alabama is hot. Summers in Alabama are among the hottest in the nation, with temperatures averaging in the 90’s. The winters are mild, as one expects in a humid subtropical zone. Alabama is in Climate Zone 3.

Recommended insulation values for Alabama range from R30 to R60 for attics and R19 to R29 for floors.

When it’s time to install or reinforce existing insulation, make sure you’re using equipment from Capitol Machine International. From blowers to vacuums, we’ve got everything you need to get the job done with precision and strength. That’s what we do. That’s all we do.

Along with playing golf in Alabama.
