    Customer Testimonial

              Dr. Energy Saver CT/MA does good quality work, and has excellent employees who provide quality service. Living in this region, you really owe it to yourself to get their free home energy audit, and see any potential areas you are losing energy efficiency in your home! My family and I first hired Dr. Energy Saver in February 2019. What I appreciated most about our initial consultation was that there was no pressure to sign up for anything and/or everything all at once, it really focused on education for me as a home owner (new homeowner at the time). We ultimately decided on upgrades to our attic insulation, following their "A,B,C" model. In this model, the attic is first priority and has most impact, and for us we were not in a position financially to make all upgrades they recommended at the same time. We have a Cape style home, and got their super knee wall treatment, as well as air seal, and blown cellulose in the attic. From start to finish, their team was professional and courteous. They even paused the project to show me a mold issue in the attic, offer a solution, and waited until I had signed the adjustment to complete the work (this is a common theme, they will not alter their service agreement/add costs without consulting you first). After the attic upgrades, the difference was immediate. The upstairs was always colder in winter, hotter in summer (even with central air). Our energy savings was around 40% after the attic insulation, in terms of cost, and also energy usage (we looked at consumption of gas and electricity year over year). Based on the performance of the attic, we hired Dr. Energy Saver again in Fall 2020, to upgrade our basement. In our basement, we had complete rim joist and foundation insulation, replacement windows, and also (again) mold remediation. My wife always said the basement bothered her asthma, after this treatment that issue is no more. Our basement this winter stays between 55-60 degrees, even if it is 0 degrees outside. Before Dr. Energy Saver, our basement could be as cold as 40-45 degrees...great for keeping Scotch cold, but you'd need to go upstairs to drink it. We can't say enough good things about this company, from top to bottom. I can also say as a repeat customer that they will always follow up with you, and if any issues or concerns come up during or after your project, they will make it right. If any parts of your home are hot in summer, too cold in winter, give them a call!

    Customer Testimonial

              Hi Dr. Energy Saver Team! I just had to tell you, as you know, nights have been quite chilly. For the first time, this winter I decided to turn my heat down to 65 degrees overnight. (I just cringe getting my oil delivery when I see the bill!!) Normally, I’d have it at ~68-70 degrees because I usually feel a chill while I’m sleeping...well, last night I turned my heat COMPLETELY OFF and, (this is amazing!), when I woke up this morning, it was STILL 70 degrees in my house!!! I was floored! Yet, beaming with a huge smile, and I owe it all to you guys!! I’ve been in this home since 2002 and if I had done this before, I’d be waking up with 3 or 4 layers of jammies & hoodies!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CHANGING MY LITTLE WORLD AND MAKING IT SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE!!

    Making An Addition Comfortable in Housatonic, MA

    This homeowner had recently added an addition to their house and wanted to insulate it to make it into livable space. 

    There was no attic floor, so we started by creating a layer to blow insulation onto with our Insulweb polyethylene webbing. Once the Insulweb was in place, we secured baffles to keep ventilation to the soffit vent, marked off any electrical work with flags, and blew in our TruSoft cellulose.

    Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this room can now be used all year round comfortably!

    Installing a SuperAttic™ Advanced Conversion System in Monterey, MA

    This homeowner called us because she was experiencing a lot of trouble with ice damming and overall energy efficiency. This particular homeowner happened to be friends with a previous customer of ours and was referred to us when she was discussing her issues with them. Unfortunately, Ice damming is a far too common concern for many New Englander's facing our unpredictable, often brutal weather patterns.

    Our Building Science Specialist was able to quickly determine that the most effective way to handle this situation was to convert the existing, inefficiently insulated, vented attic space to an energy efficient SuperAttic™. First we removed all existing old and moldy batt insulation and treated the area with our MoldX2 Cleaner™ and MoldX2 Botanical™. The area was then ready for us to install our SuperAttic™ Advanced Conversion system with SilverGlo™ EPS panels across the roof rafter and gable end to create a conditioned area.

    This home is now more energy efficient, resulting in lower energy bills, regulated airflow, and even added conditioned space in the attic that is ready for finishing! No more ice dams!

    Making a Home Comfortable in Enfield, CT

    This homeowner called our office looking for a full Energy Evaluation because her home was very cold and drafty and very expensive to heat. 

    Upon performing the evaluation, our Building Science Specialist realized that the basement was the main culprit. Without a properly insulated and air sealed basement, your home may seem much colder than necessary, resulting in a cold and drafty home overall and much higher energy bills! 

    By Insulating the Rim Joists with Closed Cell Spray Foam and lining the basement walls with Foamax Insulation Board, Dr. Energy Saver was able to fix the problem and accomplish our goal to provide warmer, less drafty rooms, and lower energy costs, making this homeowner happy, and more comfortable.

    Air Sealing a Drafty Home in Granby, CT

    These young homeowners in Granby, CT had concerns about drafts in the home, especially in the walk-in closet where it was either too hot or too cold!  We sat with the homeowners during their FREE in-home Energy Evaluation, and came up with a plan to make their home more comfortable!

    Since this was a Cape Cod-style construction, the second floor suffered from inadequate insulation making it susceptible to air leaks, causing the home to be harder to heat in the winter and harder to cool in the summer.  Our first concern was to go into the attic and remove the old, dirty insulation; over many years it sits collecting dirt, dust, pollen, bugs, rodent feces, nest, and all different kinds of undesirable things.  We went in and bagged and removed the damaged and soiled insulation creating a clean space for the new insulation.  We then addressed the air leaks in the attic, we need to keep an absolute boundary between our living space and the attic so inside air doesn’t move to the attic in the heating season (convection).  This results in a more comfortable, less drafty home, and saves YOU money.

    Thanks to Dr, Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions the couple's home is no more comfortable all year with much less need for heating and air conditioning.

    Eliminating Moisture in Crawlspace in Lenox, MA

    This homeowner in Lenox, MA called us to their home because they were experiencing water and moisture in their crawlspace. This home had a nasty, dirt crawlspace which most people assume does not effect your home's comfort and energy efficiency as much as it does! We got right to work.

    We removed all of the old, nasty insulation any debris in the crawlspace. Now, we install our dimpled plastic drainage matting across the floor to create an airspace and thermal break. TerraBlock™ floor insulation is installed over the dimpled drainage mat. Finally, the heavy-duty, 20 mil thick CleanSpace™ crawl space encapsulation liner is installed permanently across the dirt floor - sealed with mechanical fasteners to the walls and spiked to the floor. This will keep water and moisture out of the crawlspace, and make this home more comfortable and energy efficient!

    Making a Three Season Porch Livable in Southwick, MA

    These homeowners met us at the Western Massachusetts Home and Garden Show where they let us know that they had a porch that they were looking to make into more livable space. With our free energy evaluation, we found that they only had a thin radiant barrier under the floor, which was not enough to keep out the cold on its own.

    We removed the radiant barrier and insulated the rim joist with spray foam to create a proper seal before getting to the insulation. We then started installing our SilverGlo insulation foam board. SilverGlo is a graphite infused expended polystyrene board with a radiant barrier facing, it has 24% more insulation value than standard expanded polystyrene board. Those boards were put in place with special long screws and 3 inch washers and then any spaces between the boards were sealed with spray foam.

    Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, these homeowners can enjoy this porch all year round!

    To start this project, we removed all of the sheet rock, paint, and fiberglass from this garage. Now, we are ready for our installation! We take our patented, non organic material and customize it to fit the size of this garage. This non-organic material is waterproof, and will never rot or mold like wood could! We install our Everlast wall panels with insulation boards on the inside, on to the wall and we are all set!

    Making A Home More Energy Efficient In Enfield, CT

    These Homeowners in Enfield, CT called us to their home because of drafty rooms. During our energy evaluation, we noticed that the insulation in their attic was old and inefficient. We also noticed many air leaks.

    First we removed all of the old fiberglass insulation and properly disposed of the materials.  We then vacuumed the attic and cleaned up any loose pieces of old materials. Next we installed our Super Attic treatment! This treatment uses EPS foam board on the rafters making sure to air seal in between each piece of Silverglo EPS foam board. This creates a thermal barrier to the attic ceiling. Once we do this we go around the attic making sure every crack is air sealed to make sure the attic is air tight.

    Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, these homeowners can feel comfortable in their home all year round.

    This homeowner called us baffled. She couldn't figure out why despite having newer windows and doors  and a new(ish) roof, she could not keep the temperature comfortable in her home.

    Upon evaluation, our Building Science Specialist was able to immediately determine that the home was not properly insulated or air sealed. This home's attic and basement were in need of treatments to make this home comfortable and energy efficient.

    We removed and disposed of all existing, old batt insulation and prepped for new insulation in roof and knee walls, including air sealing. We installed a Super KneeWall™ System with SilverGlo™ and dense packed with TruSoft™ Cellulose. We then treated the basement by air sealing the Rim Joists with Closed Cell Spray Foam and Installing a new, Custom Exterior Door at the bottom of the hatch stairs. The basement improvements will reduce problematic cold floors and issues with dryness, humidity and allergens. "We Fix Uncomfortable Homes!"

    This homeowner in Coventry, CT because they were ready to upgrade their insulation. Upon evaluating their attic we noticed mold! Mold can be very dangerous. It is harmful to have in your home, especially for pets, young children, and older people. 

    We knew we needed to help this home. First, we removed all of the old, fiberglass insulation and properly disposed of the materials properly  Next, we spray our Mold-X treatment throughout the attic to neutralize any nooks and crannies that can be affected. Then we use our Mold-X botanical cleaner to clean all stains off of effected services. Now we are ready for the next step.

    We seal up all top plates and any areas where air can escape from the home into the attic and be lost with foam. We even made an insulated storage area as shown in the after photo. Now we are ready to blow our TruSoft Cellulose insulation into the attic. Cellulose will fill in any odd-shaped voids and gaps.

    Now, thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this home is more energy efficient!

    These Homeowners in North Stonington, CT Called us out to their home for insulation and air sealing of the attic. When we arrived, we noticed there was old inefficient fiberglass insulation in the attic.  We removed all the fiberglass insulation and vacuumed up all the debris. Next, we started air sealing the attic. We sealed up all the gaps and odd shaped voids where air was able to leak and is lost. We then insulated the attic with trusoft cellulose insulation. The access point to their attic was through the attic stairs hatch. This hatchway is a main point of where air can leak from. We installed a David Lewis Hatch Cover. What that cover does, is it rests right over the pull-down stair hatch. The cover is made of lightweight silver Glo foam insulation, it can be easily lifted aside to go up into your attic and set it back in place when you leave. It is installed over an insulated platform. It stops air from leaking down into the home and from the home up into the attic. We also insulated their ducts with Silver Glo and spray foam insulation.

    These homeowners in Northampton, MA wanted to make their home more energy efficient as well as eliminate moisture coming up from their dirt crawlspace.

    Our first step with crawlspaces is to make sure that outside air and temperatures can't get in. We sealed the rim joist and any vents letting in drafts as well as installing our SilverGlo graphite infused EPS foam board with a radiant barrier facing to make sure the cold cannot get in through the walls. We then seal off the floor, starting with a dimpled matting to create air space and a thermal break. Then we put down our TerraBlock floor insulation, and seal the floor off with a vapor barrier liner.

    This homeowner called us because they were having a serious issue with ice dams. Water was leaking in, even though they had a new roof.

    When our Building Science Specialist evaluated the home, he realized that the second floor of the Cape style home suffered from inadequate insulation and air was leaking in through the soffits into the kneewall spaces.

    To solve this problem, we first removed all existing batt insulation and prepped for new insulation in the attic area and air sealed the can lights in the cathedral ceiling. We then installed our SuperKneeWall™ Insulation System with SilverGlo™ on the walls and between floor joists as needed. We dense packed the roof, through the soffits with blown-in TruSoft™ Cellulose, air sealed the floor with ZypFoam™ and then insulated the attic floor with TruSoft™ Cellulose.

    The second floor of this home is now properly air sealed and insulated and airflow will be distributed evenly throughout the home resulting in lower energy bills and no more ice dams!

    Getting Rid of Mold and Moisture in Charlemont, MA

    This homeowner had an energy audit done and the company doing the audit refused to go further upon discovery of a rather invasive mold situation. The homeowner was desperate to get to the root of the problem and get it remedied immediately. The homeowner came across our ad in a local publication and gave us a call.

    The solution to fixing the problems in this home was quite a process. This home has 3 crawlspace areas that all needed to be extensively treated with MoldX2™ Cleaner and Botanical to get rid of existing mold and help to prevent future mold from growing. Each Crawlspace needed to have our Crawlspace Encapsulation System installed with Drainage Matting, TerraBlock™ Floor Insulation and SilverGlo™ Insulation on the walls. In addition, we used ZypFoam™ Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation around the Rim Joists in the basement and crawlspaces to properly air seal and help keep moisture out. We Installed a SmartPump™ and SmartPipe™ System in the crawlspace under the living room to eliminate water. We also installed a SaniDry™ High Performance Basement Dehumidification System in Main basement area. After removing old and replacing attic insulation with TruSoft™ Cellulose , TiteShell™ Can Light Covers and air sealing in attic, this job is a Wrap!

    These homeowners called us because they wanted the upstairs of their home to be more comfortable year-round and they also wanted their issues with Ice Dams resolved. These homeowners were also experiencing moisture issues throughout the home, especially in the basement.

    Our Building Science Specialist was able to do a whole home evaluation based on the issues at hand and came up with the following solutions: First we would remove and dispose of old, dirty existing batt insulation in the attic and prep for fresh, clean insulation. Next we would extend the bath vent and duct bath fan through the gable end and to the outside so the air is no longer feeding into the attic and creating lots of moisture and mold. We air sealed and insulated the scuttle cover. We had to create a new entrance to the knee wall areas where we installed a Super KneeWall™ System with Silverglo™, then we dense packed the roof with TruSoft™ Cellulose insulation, air sealed the floor with ZypFoam™ and finished by insulating the attic floor with TruSoft™ Cellulose as well. Next we air sealed the basement with closed-cell Spray Foam insulation along the Rim Joists and installed Foamax™ board on the walls. We also Removed and replaced a few exterior doors.

    Ice Dam prevention - Check! Energy Efficiency and lower energy bills - Check! Weather-proof and air seal the basement - Check! Dr. Energy Saver has resolved the issues and this job is finished! We Fix Uncomfortable Homes!

Upon further inspection, we found mold and wood rot. The musty odors traveled upstairs into the home and living space causing an uncomfortable situation.

    We removed the mold, replaced the wood floor and applied our Dr. Energy Saver Crawl Space Insulation System. We took out all of the old insulation and make sure the dirt floor was level. We sealed up the vents and air leaks with our insulated vent covers. Next, we insulated the crawlspace walls with 4' SilverGlo insulation boards. We blanketed a dimpled plastic drainage mat to create an airspace and thermal break. TerraBlock floor insulation was installed over the dimple mat. Finally, a heavy duty, 20 mil thick crawl space insulation liner was inserted across the entire dirt floor. This was sealed with mechanical fasteners and spiked to the floor. The crawl space insulation contained anti-microbial ingredients, helping to keep protect the area from bacteria and fungi growth.

    Now that this crawlspace is fully insulated, air sealed, and insulated, these homeowners will enjoy a more energy efficient home!
