    Customer Review

    By Walt B.
    Simsbury, CT

    The best example of Rudy's attention to detail and customer service was in the installation of the attic ladder. The first ladder had a warped board so it didn't fit flush with the ceiling when closed. Rudy got a 2nd ladder, which was better but not good enough. Without any prompting, Rudy got a third ladder and came back on a separate day to install it. This type of good service is appreciated.

    Customer Testimonial

              The main reason we contacted Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut is that condensation was forming on our bathroom and kitchen ceilings. When I saw the problem getting worse, I knew that we needed to improve our attic’s insulation. After speaking with representatives from Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut, they sent a team to my house to fully assess the issue, and I was incredibly impressed with everyone I encountered. I’m always weary about having salesmen in my home. I find the majority of them pushy, but Paul Zambrano was patient, understanding, and explained everything to us in detail. When it was time for the project to begin, the production crew maintained this standard too. Clive, Gabriel, and Oneil answered all of my questions as they worked and took extra precautions to prevent damage to my hardwood floors. They masterfully insulated and air-sealed my entire attic, and when they finished their work, they took care in cleaning up. I could hardly tell they had been there at all. Now, there is no more condensation forming anywhere, and our home is definitely more comfortable than ever before. One of the biggest changes we noticed is with our thermostat. We have a Nest thermostat that gives us reports on how long our boiler runs each day. Prior to this project, our thermostat showed the boiler turning on at a maximum of 5 ½ hours per day! Since the team from Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut visited my home, the report shows that it now runs for only 3 hours and still keeps the house warm! I never knew how uncomfortable I was in my own home until I had this work done, and now I am using my boiler 30% less than before. I will certainly refer Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut to others in the future and would tell them it is – without a doubt – the easiest way to make their home more comfortable and efficient.

    Customer Testimonial

              I had recently bought a house and through the end of the summer I noticed the ceilings and tops of every exterior wall were very warm. This was bothersome, however, once fall rolled in I had put that thought behind me. As temperatures started to cool, I was using more heat than I wanted to, and on the first really cold day, I started to notice wet spots on the ceiling and tops of all the exterior walls of my house. This was concerning, and I had been losing sleep over what could possibly be causing this. There are currently three people living in my house. When we all took showers consecutively, the ceiling would be nearly saturated with moisture. We were getting some mold spores on the ceiling. I had someone come out prior and mentioned to me it would be hard to set up a bathroom fan with the positioning of my bathroom, but we absolutely needed one. When I spoke with members of the Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut team, they mentioned that the moisture could be caused by condensation from a warm house going into a very cold attic and suggested that adding some insulation could be just the solution I needed. The team from Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut came in and installed insulation in my attic in January, a short while before a massive cold front came in. Ever since the insulation was installed, I noticed the heat running less and less, but I knew the impending cold front would be the real test. To my amazement, the heat still hardly kicked on even when the temperatures outside were hitting the negatives. Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut was also able to come in and put in a bathroom fan/light combo with no questions asked. Before the job, my heat would kick on and run for 20 or more minutes. Now the heat kicks on every few hours and for a much shorter amount of time. My ceilings and walls are never wet anymore, and my oil bill has been cut almost in half since the installation. My experience with Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut was phenomenal. From Paul Zambrano in Sales, to Jony Fernandez and his production team, every team member made me feel comfortable and reassured in my investment. I have already recommended Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut to others and will continue to do so in the future. I want to personally thank them for making my new house feel more like a home – I truly feel that they went above and beyond for me.

              Your staff, John Lopez and Rafael, did a great job! They were especially considerate of me in answering my questions, and showing me how the insulation work is done. Because of my visual problem, they made sure I wouldn't trip or stumble over something I couldn't quite see. Also, their cleanup was fantastic! My yard looked cleaner than when they started! Once again, I want you to know you should be very proud of your staff!

              Hello Larry, I want to share with you an important factor in my life, “MY FAMILY”. In the year 2012 I was deployed with my military police k9 unit. It was unfortunate that the same year my family endure some extreme bad weather, I felt helpless, incapable of providing my family a safe and comfortable home. During Hurricane Sandy, my Basement flooded and in the winter my family experienced intense cold. In my return, I dedicated myself to find a solution to my family’s safety and comfort. I researched the internet for all kinds of “do it yourself” opportunities; I was not impressed with any of it. Until, I saw your video on the net. You demonstrate such passion and care about your product that I thought your work must have impeccable quality. I was right. I called The Basement Systems to schedule a consultation, after a few hours I had peace of mind knowing that your company can provide a solution for my basement. Your employees were great from the salesperson to the contractors. The work was only two days which was amazing to me, I am happy with the work done. The following week I had the greatest pleasure to work with your sister company Dr. Energy Saver. I received the most amazing customer service from the sales person Paul Zambrano to the Foreman Eric Ardito, Bobby, and Miguel. Every day I heard my family speaking highly of the guys. They were courteous, professional, and efficient. I had planned to find a way to replace my bathroom because of the possibility of my tiles braking off. The guys did not even crack one tile in two bathrooms. They work so well dismantling the chimney, I was extremely amazed. My entire house feels warm and safe all thanks to your product and your employees. Rest assure that I will always refer your business to everyone.I am grateful for the work done in my house. Thank you. Gabriel RosarioA happy customer.

    Spray Foam Cantilever Bay in Ellington, CT

    This Ellington, CT home had a cantilever floor, which sticks out past the wall below it. Oftentimes when a home like this is constructed, the underside of the upper level floor is exposed to exterior temperatures, radiating uncomfortable temperatures into the home. The existing fiberglass insulation was a cheap fix to the problem because they did nothing to seal off the thermal bridge and had several air gaps allowing conditioned air out of the house. To repair this and insulate the house, we first removed the soffit boards. A silverGlo rigid foam insualtion block is installed in the bay to stop the thermal bridge between the second level floor and the exposed exterior wall. Next, polyurethane foam is sprayed around the block and the area above it. This ensures an airtight seal that's waterproof and will last for years to come! The results are increased comfort, less drafts, and lower energy costs!

    House Fan Cover in Ellington, CT

    When we arrived in this home, we found that air was escaping from the attic. This reduces energy efficiency, making the home drafty and uncomfortable. It was assumed the previous homeowners decided they no longer needed to use the whole house fan, so they had it "closed off" and insulated... whover completed this request did a poor job! The new owners did not want to completely negate the possibility of using of the fan, so they communicated with our home energy specialist who proposed an easy, yet effective answer to the problem. To repair this, we had to first remove the existing insulation from the dusty fan. Next, we created an insulated, airtight box around the house fan using our SilverGlo insulation and polyurethane expanding foam. Once the cover is placed on the box, air will nolonger be able to escape from the attic and the homeowners have the option of uncovering it for use at a later date. Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut was able to provide a safer, more effective, and versatile solution to a tough problem!

    The old fiberglass insulation in this Ellington, CT attic wasn't keeping up with the demands of the cold winters. It coudn't stop air from escaping out of the warm house. To repair the attic and make the house more comfortable, we had to first remove the old insulation. Next, we used polyurethane foam on any air leaks we found. This expanding foam fills every crack for an airtight seal, and also insulates! When we were finished with the air sealing, we blew cellulose into the attic. This super-green material not only insulates, but also resists combustion, insects, and mold. After this attic insulation upgrade, the owners of this home were far more comforable in their home, and saved money on heating the house as well!

    Crawlspace Encapsulation in Stamford, CT

    The old-fashioned way to insulate a crawl space was to install fiberglass batts between the overhead joists. This is no longer recommended for several reasons. In a crawl space, fiberglass insulation tends to absorb moisture, which causes it to lose R-value and fall out of place, rendering it ineffective while also creating a mess. It is also an invitation to mice and other pests. To repair and insulate this crawlspace, we first removed the old insulation. To keep moisture from entering the space, we installed drainage matting beneath TerraBlock foam insulation on the floors, and the CleanSpace vapor barrier above it. On the walls, we used closed cell spray foam. It's perfect for a crawlspace environment! Closed cell foam cures dense and hard, and it forms an effective barrier against both moisture and air. When the crawl space was finished, the owners were able to enjoy a less humid and more energy efficient home!

    One reason fiberglass insulation is a poor choice for crawlspaces is that it is an area that is vulnerable to moisture. Where the goal is to keep moisture out of the crawlspace, and subsequently the home, fiberglass batts absorb humidity and lose R-value when they do. When we arrived in this Stamford home, we found that the insulation had already grown heavy with dampness and had fallen. After removing the ineffective fiberglass, we used closed cell spray foam on the walls and our CleanSpace vapor barrier on the ground to insulate, air seal, and block out moisture entirely. The owners of this home have improved energy efficiency and home comfort, and lower energy bills because of encapsulating their crawl space!

    CleanSpace Vent Cover in Stamford, CT

    In older houses, it is common for crawl spaces to have open vents installed. It was believed that the vents would allow fresh air to circulate through the area to help relieve moisture and humidity from the room. However, the air outside is often more wet and humid than the inside. Moist air that enters a vented crawl space will condense on cooler crawl space surfaces, ruining insulation and encouraging mold, mildew and wood decay. That air will also be naturally circulated up through all of the other levels of the home.  Encapsulating the crawl space with our CleanSpace crawl space liner is the recommended treatment for a vented crawl space in order to separate and shield the crawl space from outside conditions. Our Everlast crawl space vent covers won’t warp, rot or crack and, most importantly, they are airtight, helping to ensure a dry crawl space and more comfortable living area.

    This attic had poorly installed fiberglass batts insulation and several concerning areas for air leakage. The area was sealed with a sprayable orange foam and then our Trusoft cellulose insulation was installed. Both of these products combined will stop conditioned or heated air from escaping, eliminating drafts. Another important benefit of our Trusoft insulation is that it's fire retardant due to the treatment of natural borate compounds. Those same compounds prevent the presence of insects, rodents and mold!

    Multi-Level Attic Insulation in North Haven, CT

    Multi-level attics can cause homes to be especially drafty if not insulated properly. When one room has a higher ceiling than another, it leaves a short area completely exposed in the attic. Fiberglass batts can’t stop the air flow. This major air leak was causing high energy bills and a drafty house. To solve this problem, we installed SilverGlo insulation in place of the fiberglass and sealed it with expanding foam. As a result, the adjacent rooms in the home were significantly warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and the house was less drafty and more comfortable overall.

    Exposed and leaky air ducts can be a huge source of energy loss in the home. It doesn't take long for a hot summer attic to warm up the cool, conditioned air in the ducts – air that the homeowner paid to cool! To make the heating and cooling system more efficient and less costly, we insulated the ductwork with our Spray Foam insulation and TruSoft blown cellulose. Blown Cellulose exceeds the insulation value of fiberglass, with R-values as high as R-4 per inch because it perfecly fills all the nooks within wall cavities and around duct work. And unlike fiberglass insulation, which can't stop air movement, Spray Foam insulation is effective in slowing or stopping air leaks that can waste energy and cause cold drafts.

    This meriden home had insulation that wasn't very efficient. The attic was very drafty and alot of air would escape. The home owners were very frustrated with their previously poorly installed insulation and decided its time to call someone to fix it. They contacted us here at Dr. EnergySaver of Connecticut and Paul Zambrano, one of hour home energy specialists came up with a solution to fix the issue for good. We took out their fiberglass insulation and put in our Spray foam. Spray foam is an open-cell foam made up of tiny bubbles that are interconnected. The bubbles hold air, which provides insulation value — typically between R-3.5 and R-4 per inch. The homeowners now have a better insulated and seal attic that holds in their heated or conditioned air, saving them big money on their heating and cooling costs.
