Koala Insulation of Fort Lauderdale Partners with Military Makeover



Ft. Lauderdale, FL, August 13, 2021 – Koala Insulation of Fort Lauderdale, a high-quality insulation contractor serving homeowners, contractors, and property owners in the greater Ft. Lauderdale area, announced its partnership with Military Makeover, a home improvement series dedicated to rebuilding the homes and the lives of military veterans. The makeover series is hosted and co-produced by former talk show host Montel Williams, a Marine Corps and Navy veteran himself.

Koala Insulation will provide new insulation as part of a major home improvement for Michell Dingee, a United States Air Force veteran living in Hollywood, Florida. Michelle’s family has a long history of military service, and she was proudly the first female in her family to join the military. Enlisting in October 2000, Michelle trained as a medic at Sheppard and Scott Air Force Bases (AFB) before her first station at Keesler AFB in Mississippi. In her 14-year military career, Michelle traveled the world treating soldiers returning from the front lines, witnessing the horrors of warfare as well as the toll it takes on human life. These experiences still haunt Michelle, who has shared that she battles with PTSD, depression, and anxiety that developed during her time in service.

“Michelle’s story really hit home for us”, shared David Ludeman, Koala Insulation franchise owner in Fort Lauderdale. “We are beyond proud to be part of creating a more comfortable and energy-efficient home for Michelle. It’s the least we can do to honor her service and the sacrifices she has made for our country.”

Nine out of ten homes in America are under-insulated, leading to high electric bills and inconsistent temperatures in the home. Due to insufficient insulation in her attic, Michelle’s home was no exception. She was consistently dealing with significant temperature fluctuations from one room to another, even with all her windows and doors closed. The team at Koala Insulation of Fort Lauderdale tackled the lack of adequate insulation in her home's attic by installing blown-in fiberglass insulation to increase the insulation R-value. With new attic insulation Michelle won’t have to run her air conditioning as often, she’ll save money on her electric bill, and her entire home will have a more consistent temperature. 

The Military Makeover episode featuring Michelle Dingee and Koala Insulation is set to air on August 13, 2021 at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime TV. The Koala Insulation of Ft. Lauderdale team provides insulation services to the greater Fort Lauderdale area, including Dania, Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Pompano Beach, Plantation, Pompano Beach, Davie, Weston, Southwest Ranches, Sunrise, Tamarac, Oakland Park, Coconut Creek, and Cooper City.
