Every year, families pay more for the energy bills than they need to because air is being leaked out through cracks and gaps. Through a process called the "stack effect", energy gets leaked to the attic from cracks in the floors and ceilings. Your home then tries to pull in new air from the crawl space or basement which only circulates bad, cold air through the house. By going through the process of air sealing, we can pinpoint which areas of your home are letting air leak out and fix them so that your home can start being more energy-efficient.
Crawl spaces are one of the biggest culprits for air leaks because they are often the victims of poor insulation. Some of the major warning signs of a insulation problem in your crawl space are cold floors above the crawl space, a moldy odor or mold visible on the framing, and dampness in the crawl space. Vapor barriers can be instrumental in sealing out moisture and bugs while keeping heat in so that cold air from outside doesn't leak out into the rest of the house.
One of the major issues in homes today that suffers from energy loss is inadequate insulation, especially in their attics, where air leaks out the most often. When this happens, it usually leads to high utility bills, plus rooms that are too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. Our SuperAttic system is proven to have a higher R-value which means more insulation between the attic and the rest of the house.
Rigid foam insulation, like SilverGlo insulation, is good for basements and crawl spaces because it is easy to cut and shape to fit the space, but it takes longer to install.
Another dangerous effect of heat leaking out through the attic of your house is that it can cause snow on the roof to melt. When the snow starts to melt from the warmth of the roof, it freezes again in the gutter. Eventually, the water builds up behind the ice, creating a dam that leaks water back through the roof and into your home. This can be prevented by insulating your attic properly so that heat doesn't escape in the first place.
Additionally, windows and doors often leave cracks that allow for air to escape that way. By investing in replacement windows from our certified experts, you can be assured that what you have installed fits exactly the way it should so that air can no longer leak out of it.
Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut has the know-how and professionally trained technicians to get your job done right, whether its replacing windows, insulating your home or air sealing.

When we arrived in this Glastonbury attic, we found that the existing fiberglass insulation wasn’t keeping warm air from escaping the house in the winter. This unnecessarily drove up heating costs for the homeowners. We removed the ineffective blown fiberglass and fiberglass batts so that we could air seal all of the gaps, seams and holes with expanding polyurethane foam. This sealed off the air flow between the attic and the rest of the house in order to keep the heated air where it belongs. Next we built dams and blew in our TruSoft cellulose insulation. Treated with natural borate compounds, blown cellulose insulation won't catch fire and it discourages the presence of insects, rodents and mold. We insulated the walkway with a layer of 4” SilverGlo, topped with flakeboard. After their attic insulation upgrade, these owners were able to stay more comfortable in the cold weather while seeing a decrease in their energy bills!
