I have been with Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut since 2010. During this time, I have participated in many trainings and have completed hundreds of projects like yours. My crew and I have worked together for several years and we take pride in our work. I live in Stamford and when I have free time love hockey and riding my motorcycle.
These Riverside, CT homeowners reported incredibly cold floors in the second floor of their home where the second level cantilevers slightly over the first. We sent one of our most knowledgeable home comfort experts Keith Saunders to the home in order to see what to do with the issue. The reason why this cantilever was allowing to much heat out of the home was because it had a layer of rigid foam insulation that was not air sealed, so it was allowing heated air to escape.
Keith recommended we install sprayable foam insulation between the floor joists that are cantilevering outward. This was done by our crew lead by Rudy Abel. They removed the siding underneath to expose the cavities then installed three inches of the foam to reach an R-value of about R-12. The closed cell foam expanded to fill all the gaps in the floor joists which will prevent heated air from escaping through this access point again.
The homeowners noticed right away the floors on the second floor were not nearly as cold as they had been in past winters! They continued to have additional insulation installed in their attic by Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut.
These Stamford, CT homeowners called Dr Energy Saver of Connecticut with concerns for their high heating and cooling bills. They were looking to invest in their attic by consulting with one of our Home Energy Specialists. Keith Saunders, an expert in anything home energy, visited their home to check out any shortcomings in their attic. He noticed there were a lot of gaps in their fiberglass bats insulation that was allowing their heated and conditioned air from the living spaces leak into the attic. Also, their air ducts were not completely air sealed which also was robbing the homeowners from their conditioned air.
Keith suggested they air seal, ugrade their insulation, and build an area they could use for storage in their attic. We sent out Rudy Abel, a foreman with ample knowledge and experience in installing home energy products. He first removed all the fiberglass bats installed that had become compressed and were barely providing any insulation. He then used an expanding spray-able foam into any gaps and joints throughout the attic, including installing foam caps for all the can lights and air sealing them too. He used our Spray Foam insulation to completely seal and insulate all the air ducts. Him and his crew installed our Blown in Cellulose insulation so the attic can have an r-value of R60 to provide an ample blanket of insulation.
The homeowners now have an incredibly energy efficient attic that helps contain any conditioned air in the living spaces. The homeowners are already pleased with the work!
This New Canaan attic was filled with traditional fiberglass insulation. Even though the attic was “insulated,” it still caused discomfort for the homeowner. As seen in the before photo, the fiberglass insulation was poorly installed and air was still able to leak through. The homeowner wanted a solution to make her home more comfortable and have a lower energy bill, so she decided to call the experts at Dr. Energy Saver of CT to help!
The solution for this attic was to install blown-in cellulose. Blown cellulose is superior to traditional fiberglass insulation because it is effective, safe and environmentally friendly. It has a superior R-value compared to fiberglass and is also known as a “green” product. It is primarily made from recycled newspaper that have been treated with boric compounds to become resistant to water, rodents, insects and fire. This product also acts as a thermal barrier that will keep the temperatures in the home more stable and comfortable.
Once installation was complete, the homeowner noticed a difference in her electric bill and was extremely happy with the results!

This Southport homeowner was experiencing moisture and rodent issues in their crawlspace in addition to high heating and cooling costs year round. They called Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut and one of our Home Energy Specialists, Jeremy Bossio, discovered several insulation shortcomings, plus the solutions. Foreman Rudy Abel did an amazing job removing all the existing fiberglass batts insulation that were failing miserably, installed two TripleSafe Sump Pumps, and air sealed and insulated the rim joist. Now the homeowners have a much more comfortable home and a healthy, dry crawlspace.
This Fairfield, CT crawl space had several air leaks and its lack of insulation was causing uncomfortable temperatures and severe drafts in the rest of the home. The space had two poorly insulated windows allowing moist, unfiltered, unconditioned air to leak into the house proving to be a big issue. Wanting to make the space cleaner and improve the comfort of his home, the homeowner did some online research and decided to schedule an appointment with the experts at Dr. Energy Saver of CT.
Home energy specialist Keith Saunders arrived to inspect the home. Keith quickly identified the problems in the crawl space, including uninsulated floor joists, under-performing windows, little protection from moisture, and general lack of insulation. He shared his findings with the homeowner, and together, they discussed some possible solutions and found the best fit for the homeowner.
On the first day of production, foreman Rudy Abel arrived with his crew to begin the project. First, they insulated the home's rim joist, which would prevent crawl space air from leaking into the rest of the home. Next, the team installed CleanSpace liner, which acts as a moisture barrier and covers up the dirty crawl space walls. Finally, they lined the walls with SilverGlo insulation, which includes a built-in reflective barrier that provides added protection from harsh exterior temperatures. When the team was done, the crawl space had been transformed from an uncomfortable crawl space into a neatly lined and well insulated area. The homeowner was more than satisfied with the results, excited that this project had provided him with a more energy efficient home, as well as some valuable storage space, all in one.
These Fairfield, CT homeowners called Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut when they began to realize the home they moved into in the spring, could not handle the summer heat! They were beginning to feel increasingly uncomfortable in the hot and humid second floor and felt like they were already spending way too much on air conditioning. One of our trusted Home Energy Experts visited the home in order to check out what might be causing their discomfort. Upon arrival and closer examination, he realized the home’s attic was incredibly under insulated and the soffit was insulated improperly with fiberglass batts insulation.
The homeowners agreed to have their soffit insulated with densely packed TruSoft Cellulose insulation. We sent out our crew of workers lead by foreman Rudy Abel to complete the project. They first removed the shingles and ridge vent at the top of the roofline in order to access the cavity. As you can see in the before photo, there were significant gaps in the insulation and there is no doubt this was a massive culprit of their discomfort. The works installed the TruSoft Cellulose through a pressurized hose in order to pump as much insulation into the roof cavity as possible. Afterwards, they reinstalled the ridge vent and shingles and now the roof looks good as new!
Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut left this family feeling much more comfortable in their home after this visit and we are proud to have done more work for these homeowners in the years since!

Despite a layer of fiberglass insulation, this attic was still letting cold, drafty air into this Bridgeport house. While the existing fiberglass insulation added some insulation value, it didn't stop the problematic air leaks. To fix this issue, we first had to remove the ineffective fiberglass insulation. Next, we air-sealed the attic with expanding foam, sealing all cracks that air seeps into the house from. Additionally, we upgraded the insulation to our TruSoft blown cellulose insulation. Air-sealing the attic, combined with an attic insulation upgrade, cut this home's heating and cooling costs by around 40%!
The owners of this home wanted to upgrade the insulation in their attic, so Dr. Energy Saver installed our blown in Cellulose insulation. They requested for extra storage space in their attic without compromising the energy efficiency of the room, so to meet their needs, we constructed an insulated storage deck across a portion of their attic. To install this decking, we first laid down our rigid SilverGlo foam board across the ceiling joists. SilverGlo is a rigid foam board infused with graphite, which boosts its insulation value by 24% over standard EPS foam. We then covered the SilverGlo with Oriented Strand Board (OSB). To keep the blown insulation off the storage area, we installed dams around the perimeter of the insulated decking. Not only did this job add valuable attic storage space, it made the whole home more comfortable and less drafty!
This Trumbull, CT homeowner had been experiencing their kitchen being uncomfortably cold in the winter and hot in the summer. They thought it was because of their walls, but when our trusted Home Energy Expert Keith Saunders visited the home, he explained it was more because of their improperly insulated attic. The home’s attic was insulated with a layer of fiberglass batts insulation between the ceiling’s joists, but this was not adding enough of a thermal barrier between the home and the freezing cold attic. There were also many holes where wires were fed through the plywood where air was leaking, and there were several can lights above the kitchen which were incredibly leaky.
Keith suggested Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut installing sprayable foam sealant in order to air seal the gaps in the attic. They would also use SilverGlo Rigid Foam insulation in order to provide a continuous, airtight insulation layer with a radiant barrier to reflect the warm air back inside during the wintertime. The homeowners agreed to have these installed along with additional insulation in their attic.
Our crew lead by Rudy Abel went to the home and started the work by removing all the old dirty insulation and air sealing with the orange foam. They installed TiteShell recessed can light covers over the light fixtures in the attic and sealed them with expanding foam around their edges. This keeps air from inside your rooms leaking out into the cold attic. They also installed the SilverGlo Rigid Foam insulation where any interior walls were exposed to the attic and sealed the gaps between them with sprayable foam sealant. They then installed TruSoft Cellulose insulation into the attic by blowing it in through a hose.
The homeowners noticed a difference right away in their warmer kitchen and less drafty rooms around the house.
Before we came out to this Newtown crawl space, it was dirty, cold and damp. The cold air that was seeping into the crawl space made the home above uncomfortable and made monthly energy bills higher for the homeowners. Wanting a solution, they called Dr. Energy Saver of CT!
On the day of the scheduled appointment, our Home Comfort Advisor, Chris Grosso, arrived to give a free home evaluation.

This Newtown attic was under insulated and caused fluctuating temperatures and discomfort throughout the home. When an attic lacks the proper insulation, it can cause high heating and cooling costs, uncomfortable rooms, and uneven temperatures throughout the entire home. This Newtown homeowner wanted a solution, so he called the experts at Dr. Energy Saver of CT and scheduled an appointment for a free home evaluation.
On the day of the appointment, our home comfort advisor, Chris Grosso, concluded that the attic would need to be insulated and air sealed using spray foam and SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation. Some of the benefits of SilverGlo insulation include an infusion with graphite powder to improve insulating value and a reflective coating that acts as an effective radiant barrier to keep heat inside the home. Before the insulation is installed, it is highly recommended to have the entire attic air sealed, which will eliminate any drafts and unwanted airflow in the attic.
On the day of production, Rudy Abel and his team began to remove the existing insulation. Then, the entire attic was air sealed with spray foam. Lastly, the SilverGlo panels were installed, and the homeowner was extremely happy with the results! He now enjoys a more comfortable, energy efficient home thanks to Dr. Energy Saver of CT!

This attic in Stratford, CT wasn't properly insulated. The existing insulation had little to no R-Value, the insulation was scattered and was not doing any good for the homes energy efficiency. Having a home that has an attic with poorly preforming insulation can run your monthly utility bills up a pretty penny. This homeowner wanted a space that could be used for storage but was also energy efficient and provided enough insulation for their family to live comfortably in the rooms below. We installed blown-in insulation over most of the attic, raising the R Value up to R60 from the previous next to nothing value it had before. Blown in insulation offers more uniform and thorough coverage than typical fiberglass batts. We also built an insulated catwalk using particle board and rigid foam insulation with retaining dams to keep the storage area clean of blown cellulose. This room is much more attractive looking and doubles as a storage haven and will now be one of the most energy efficient rooms in the house! This homeowner couldn't be happier with their new space!
This Monroe crawl space was covered in cob webs and dirty debris. There was existing fiberglass insulation trying its best to insulate the rim joist, yet failing to do so when exposed to the moist crawl space atmosphere. The uncomfortable conditions limited the homeowner from being able to use this space to their advantage for storage. We installed our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. It offers a 25-year warranty that keeps moisture and humidity out of your crawl space. Under that is our drainage matting, this gives water a place to go if any were to leak into the crawl space. This space is healthy, more attractive looking and able to be used as a functional space by the homeowner.
