Before and After Pictures from Derby
Rim Joist Insulation in Derby, CT

Rim Joist Insulation in Derby, CT

Before After
Rim Joist Insulation in Derby, CT Rim Joist Insulation in Derby, CT

Before, this Derby basement had an inefficient door and uninsulated rim joists that were causing an uncomfortable and drafty area. This not only affected the basement area, but also caused cold floors in the main rooms above! Wanting a solution, the homeowner decided to contact the experts at Dr. Energy Saver of CT to help come up with the perfect solution for her home. 

The solution for this home was to apply spray foam insulation around the rim joists of the basement. (the yellow foam above the walls as you can see in the after photo) This insulation will prevent air and moisture from coming through. This will help warm up the floor in the main rooms of the house while also keeping the basement well insulated. Another problem area was the door, which as you can see in the before photo, had tape around the trim to prevent a draft. The solution was to replace it with a door that correctly fit, leaving little space for any unwanted air to flow through. This is exactly what the homeowner wanted and they were thrilled with the results!

Before, this Derby basement had inefficient windows that would leak air and moisture, making the surrounding area uncomfortable. Wanting to make her home more energy efficient, the homeowner decided to reach out to the experts at Dr. Energy Saver of CT to help find a solution.

The solution for this basement was to install EverLast windows. Our low-e EverLast windows will not let heat through the glass like the original windows would and will also prevent drafts and leaking. Old windows (like the one in the before photo) easily rust, but with our EverLast windows, there will be virtually no maintenance because they have vinyl frames that will not rust and do not need to be painted. These windows are not only practical, but they let in a lot of natural light, making the entire area more welcoming. This is exactly what the homeowner wanted and they were very pleased with the results.

Proper Insulation Will Help Decrease Your Energy Bills All Year

As a Connecticut homeowner, you know full well how harsh the winters and summers can be here. One of the best ways to save on your energy bills for years to come is to update your home's insulation. Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut is a professional blown insulation contractor, catering to residential homes in Derby and nearby. Hop on the path to savings by contacting us today! 

Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut likes using blown-in cellulose insulation for many homes due to the fact that it is one of the best types of insulation that can match or exceed the insulation value of fiberglass, with R-values as high as R-4 per inch. That is because, unlike fiberglass which doesn't stop air movement, cellulose does a good job of slowing or stopping air leaks that can waste energy and cause cold drafts. It is also eco-friendly, as it takes much less energy to manufacture than other types of insulation, and is even made from recycled newspaper. Plus, blown-in cellulose is resistant to fires, mice, and mold, so you can count on the insulation value lasting.

Ice Dam Repair & Prevention Solutions

Homes in this area of the country are exposed to frigid temperatures and snow every winter.  Because of this, ice dams are common issues that homeowners deal with.  Ice dams are caused when the heat inside your attic warms the underside of the roof and causes ice and snow to melt. Ice dams can cause serious damage to your roof and can leak into your attic. When we talk about ice dams, one of the most frequent questions we get asked is "how do I prevent or repair ice dams?"  Preventing ice dams is fairly simple with the use of proper insulation and air sealing. If your home is facing ice dam issues, contact the experts at Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut for a FREE quote today!
