This homeowner in Ellington, CT called us out to their home to take a look as some problems that have been experiencing. The problem was their kitchen, their kitchen was very cold and drafty and they could not figure out why. They also had extremely high energy bills due to the amount of heat they were losing. We went to the home to perform a Full Home energy Evaluation to figure out why they were having this issue. We knew we needed to help these customers become more comfortable in a room of their home that they spend a lot of time in. While conducting the Energy Evaluation we noticed that in their basement, directly under their kitchen the walls were full of fiberglass insulation. Fiberglass insulation is soft and fluffy, and allows a great deal of cold air to travel through. Because of this it does not make for a great insulation choice. Air was seeping through this fiberglass and up into this homeowners kitchen, creating a cold and drafty living space.  We knew exactly what we had to do to make these homeowners more comfortable, and energy efficient in their home.

 

The first thing we need to do in this homeowners basement was the nasty task of removing all of the old, fiberglass insulation. We properly bag up and dispose of this insulation and bring it off site. Next, we install our Polyisocyanurate foam insulation board on the basement walls. This isn’t just an ordinary foam board- Polyisocyanurate foam has the flame retardant properties to satisfy building codes to leave it exposed in the basement. It also has a foil facing to reflect heat so that the insulation isn’t doing all the work by itself. We make sure these boards are tightly secured with Dr. Energy Savers proprietary Foam-Tite Fasteners. This will drastically reduce this customers energy bills, and the cold, drafty kitchen. Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this homeowner can not live more comfortably, happy, and energy efficient in their home!!

This customer in Ellington, CT called us out because of a concern they were having in their home. Their concern was that they had very old, ineffective fiberglass insulation in the attic. Fiberglass insulation is super fluffy, and is not able to properly insulate a home on its own. Due to this, this home was way colder than it should be this winter. This was caused by the lack of proper insulation. Without proper insulation air can leak into your attic and out of your home, making it difficult and costly to keep a home warm.

 

To fix this, we use our SuperPlatform treatment. First we need to remove the existing insulation.  Our installers remove all of the old insulation, bag it up, and properly dispose of the materials. Since this home contains an HVAC system in their attic we have make sure there is a proper walkway, or catwalk in the attic. This makes it so that service can be done correctly and safely in a space where there are mechanics.  Next, we lay our 4" SilverGlo foam board across the wooded walkway. This will increase the insulation value by 24%. We want to make sure that none of the blown in insulation we are installing will get on to our new walkway. Next, we have to install plywood over the foam board held in place by long screws and washers. Following this step, we dense pack TruSoft cellulose insulation into any space beneath the catwalk that is not filled. Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this customer is warmer and ecstatic with the temperature in their home!

Ellington's Leading Spray Foam Insulation Contractor

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Spray foam insulation is also waterproof, unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or bypassed. Once cured, spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Include:

  • Spray foam works in all areas of the home
  • Has a greater R-value
  • Acts as an air sealant
  • Is waterproof
  • Leaves no gaps

Job Stories From Ellington, CT
SuperPlatform Treatment for Storage and Savings in Ellington, CT

These home owners in Ellington, CT had called us to their home because they were looking for a quote on re-insulating their attic. They had just taken care of a serious mice problem in the attic as well. They mentioned they had old, nasty fiberglass insulation up there at the time. We already know that fiberglass is one of a mouse's favorite nesting places! When our building science specialist got to the home, he conducted the Full Home Energy Evaluation and came to a conclusion of what should be done to benefit these homeowners home energy efficiency.

Fiberglass insulation is super fluffy, and is not able to properly insulate a home on its own. Due to this, this home was way colder than it should be this winter. This was caused by the lack of proper insulation. Without proper insulation air can leak into your attic and out of your home, making it difficult and costly to keep a home warm. We removed the old insulation, air sealed with our 4" SilverGlo foam board insulation, and sealed around each piece to ensure air sealing. We then made a catwalk so that when we blow insulation in on our next step, these homeowners still have a storage area. Then we blow in our Cellulose insulation to completely insulate the rest of the attic. Our Cellulose insulation contains boric acid, which will get into the eyes of rodents and irritate them, making them not want to return! This will ensure the problem they already solved with the mice!

Now we have helped these homeowners with new and improved air sealing and insulation, and their home is more comfortable and energy efficient! 

 

Below is a photo of the finished attic. You can see the catwalk we built and all of the new insulation!
