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!
