This customer in Brick, NJ just had a new HVAC system installed by another company that does HVAC work. Unfortunately, this company did not really care about the efficiency of the ducts that were supposed to carry the system's air into the home. And the brand new system that was installed, was effectively useless. The homeowners did not feel any more comfortable than they did before, defeating the purpose of installing a new system to get more comfortable.
Unsure of what to do now, the customer reached out to Dr. Energy Saver Jersey Shore for any solutions to his problem. We had just the thing, encapsulating their ducts with 2" of reflective polyiso board and 2" of expanding spray foam to fully seal one of the leakiest parts of the system. Encapsulating these ducts will protect the conditioned air that the system is creating by completely air seal ensuring them so none will leak out into the attic before it gets to the inside of your house. Additionally, now that the air is being kept in the ducts, it is also insulated by 2" of foam with an R-Value(resistance to heat movement) of R-13, rather than just an 1/8" piece of sheet metal with virtually no R-Value. This left the system operating more efficiently while making a tremendous difference in comfort in the home.
This customer's home in Brick, NJ wasn't keeping them comfortable during this hot summer. It was due to the lack of insulation in their attic that was letting a large amount of conditioned air escape the inside of the home. Not air sealing your attic can cost you and your family money in energy, and can cost you your comfort in your own home. Upping the value of this customer's insulation to R-60(resistance to heat flow) maximizes the efficiency of the insulation and will keep air from leaking out through the top of the house.
This house in Sea Girt, NJ's lack of insulation in the attic was not keeping the customers heated or cooled air inside of the home. Allowing this air to escape your home means you are spending more money to heat and cool than you should, and tyou are not as comfortable as you could be in your home! You can see the difference after adding 11" of cellulose, how it looks like a warm wool blanket pulled over the top of the house. With no cracks or gaps for the air to go, it is forced to remain in the house. Simply upgrading your insulation can yield amazing results in both comfort in the home, and savings on energy costs.
This family was newly renovating their second floor when they contacted Dr. Energy Saver about possible insulation solutions for their second floor's exterior walls. Dr. Energy was able to hang insulweb, insulation webbing onto the walls wooden framing. This allowed for the crew to fill the bays with insulation even before the homeowners finish their current renovations. Now, the other contractors can just hang sheetrock over the insulweb.
After the completion of the construction in their home, this couple was kind enough to let us take some finished, post construction work to complete our photo series. The dense-packed walls are now covered with normal Sheetrock, painted, and they are now fully insulated and offering sound relief inside of those rooms from the busy street outside.
This attic kneewall was leaking a considerable amount of air into this customer's home in Red Bank, NJ due to a lack of insulation. In order to stop this problem, Dr. Energy Saver sheathed the wall in 2" polyisocyanurate foam board and sealed it with expanding spray foam to create an air-sealed barrier between the attic and the inside of the house. This fix has left the homeowner feeling more comfortable and happy about saving money on his energy bills for the rest of the time he owns the house.
