This is what the attic originally looked like. There was little to no insulation, leaving plenty of opportunity for unwanted airflow, moisture and pests to find entry.
This Newtown crawl space had no insulation, and was dirty and cluttered.
First, we air sealed any areas that could have cracks or openings. Air sealing limits unwanted airflow and helps keep the temperatures in the home more stable.
After we air sealed the crawl space, Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut installed SilverGlo insulation in the attic to prevent any airflow or moisture entry. SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation is durable and won't lose R-value over time.
We added our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to the crawl space to prevent moisture, humidity and air leakage. This durable liner can help seal out cold drafts and keeps floors warmer in the winter. The homeowner is very happy with his more energy efficient crawl space and attic!
This Newtown attic and crawl space had insufficient insulation. This caused uneven temperatures and an uncomfortable home. Click through the photo gallery to see how Dr. Energy Saver of CT was able to help!
