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 Trumbull 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.

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!

This Trumbull, CT homeowner had been experiencing their kitchen being uncomfortably cold in the winter and hot in the summer. They thought it was because of their walls, but when our trusted Home Energy Expert Keith Saunders visited the home, he explained it was more because of their improperly insulated attic. The home’s attic was insulated with a layer of fiberglass batts insulation between the ceiling’s joists, but this was not adding enough of a thermal barrier between the home and the freezing cold attic. There were also many holes where wires were fed through the plywood where air was leaking, and there were several can lights above the kitchen which were incredibly leaky.
Keith suggested Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut installing sprayable foam sealant in order to air seal the gaps in the attic. They would also use SilverGlo Rigid Foam insulation in order to provide a continuous, airtight insulation layer with a radiant barrier to reflect the warm air back inside during the wintertime. The homeowners agreed to have these installed along with additional insulation in their attic.
Our crew lead by Rudy Abel went to the home and started the work by removing all the old dirty insulation and air sealing with the orange foam. They installed TiteShell recessed can light covers over the light fixtures in the attic and sealed them with expanding foam around their edges. This keeps air from inside your rooms leaking out into the cold attic. They also installed the SilverGlo Rigid Foam insulation where any interior walls were exposed to the attic and sealed the gaps between them with sprayable foam sealant. They then installed TruSoft Cellulose insulation into the attic by blowing it in through a hose.
The homeowners noticed a difference right away in their warmer kitchen and less drafty rooms around the house.

Finally, the crew installed TruSoft Blown in cellulose insulation in order to meet R-value standards and provide enough of a thermal barrier so the homeowners can be comfortable in their home.
We installed a David Lewis Hatch cover at the entrance to the attic in order to offer an airtight insulated cap that can be easily removed upon entrance into the attic.
