Before and After Pictures from Riverside
Insulated Cantilevered Level in Riverside, CT

Insulated Cantilevered Level in Riverside, CT

Before After
Insulated Cantilevered Level in Riverside, CT Insulated Cantilevered Level in Riverside, CT

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.

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 Riverside 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.

  • Sealing Air Leaks
  • Radiant Barrier Installation

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!

Job Stories From Riverside, CT
Attic Insulation in Riverside, CT

This Cape Cod style home in Riverside, CT was beginning to seem drafty, and their energy bills were growing increasingly high. It was a cause for concern, and the family knew they needed a solution, and they needed one fast. They gave us a call at Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut, and we were happy to help out! 

After our Home Comfort Specialist came in, and diagnosed the problem was that their roof wasn't properly insulated, expert foreman, Rudy Abel, came out to get the job done. The first thing he did was air seal the attic. Believe it or not, more air leaks out of the home through the attic than anywhere else. Warm air naturally rises, and and attics are typically under-insulated and full of gaps and cracks. This allows the air you pay to heat to escape the house. By air sealing this space, it will help reduce this family's energy bills significantly. We then used blown-in insulation in the entire roof area. Blown in cellulose insulation is not only a great choice to use for attics, but it is also the most cost effective option. It is also treated so that it resistance to fire, mold, and insects. Best of all? It keeps air from floating down into the lower rooms of the home.

This family can now feel comfortable in their home knowing it'll be warmer, and their bills will become lower. Give us a call TODAY for your FREE energy evaluation!
