A McHale’s Environmental Insulation technician works on a customer’s insulation project.

McHale’s Environmental Insulation, Inc. is a home energy specialist that installs cellulose, fiberglass, cotton, and radiant barrier insulation for residential and commercial clients throughout the Greater Bay Area. The company specializes in thermally and acoustically controlling building envelopes (attics, walls and floors), but it can also remove old insulation and provide free inspections of existing materials to determine if they’re still effective or need to be replaced.

Tom and Shelly McHale established McHale’s Environmental Insulation in 1978 to help Bay Area customers decrease their energy bills, reduce unwanted sound, and enjoy more comfortable and quiet living environments. President Daniel Hair took over the business in 2007 and brings more than 20 years of journeyman experience to every project.

McHale’s Environmental Insulation can help its customers qualify their homes for available utility rebates and incentives, which make the potential savings gained from the company’s services even greater, says Mr. Hair. PACE financing is also available for customers on qualified projects.
