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!
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.
This Homeowner Called us out to her home to update their attic insulation. They were experiencing ice damming on the roof. Some spots were too hot and others were too cold. This home was insulated with old fiberglass insulation.
We removed the old inefficient fiberglass insulation in the attic. We install our blocks of Silverglo foam insulation board between the ceiling joist bays, and under the rafters. We air seal around the blocks with foam. Air is no longer able to enter and escape out of the home.
Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions this home is more comfortable, energy- efficient, and no longer has snow melt!
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 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!
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!
This homeowner called us to his home for a basement and crawlspace evaluation. We noticed the vented crawlspace had insulation falling. This can be caused by the vents that in the winter season let cold air into the home, which causes the insulation to sag away from the sub floor and cold air then gets above it. In the summer, vents let warm humid air in, which is cooled by the subterranean crawl space which causes relative humidity to go way up! Condensation can form all over the crawlspace surfaces, supporting mold!
We removed and properly disposed the damaged and moldy insulation. We insulated the walls with Silverglo foam boards. We then began the encapsulation process installed a dimpled plastic drainage matting across the floor to create a airspace and thermal break, and terrablock floor insulation is installed over it. We then installed an encapsulation liner over permanently across the floor and sealed it with mechanical fasteners to the walls and spiked to the floor. Cleanspace features ultrafresh anti- microbial ingredients in the product. We then added spray foam insulation to the walls and rim joist!
Thanks to Dr Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this house will have much lower humidity, much warmer floors upstairs, less drafts, a more comfortable house, lower fuel and electric bills!!
This Homeowner called us concerned about the condition of the existing Insulation in the attic and Cathedral Ceiling of the main entryway to their home. We evaluated the problem in this home and came up with a solution to make the affected area more comfortable and efficient.
Our team began by removing 270 sq. ft. of old, damaged, batt and loose Insulation. We then treated the area for mold with MoldX2 Cleaner and MoldX2 Botanical. Next we layed down Insulweb Treatment with 1X3" strapping and then Dense Packed with TruSoft™ Cellulose from Soffit/Fascia, before replacing ceiling with Sheetrock/Sheetrock Tape and 1 coat of mud per the Homeowner's request. The Homeowner opted to complete finishing details such as sanding and painting. We do projects large and small. From Basement to Roof, Dr. Energy Saver has you covered!
