Insulation Services Photo Album: Attic Insulation in Holmdel, NJ
These customers were tired of being uncomfortable in their own home and decided it was time for some new insulation. They called Dr. Energy Saver to come offer some solutions to make their home more efficient and comfortable. With a lack of substantial insulation, it was easy to see that this home could benefit from cellulose being added to the attic to really give the home the insulation it needs. Having 17.5" of cellulose in your attic ups the R-Value of your insulation to R-60 which is the max recommended value in this climate. Dr. Energy also added an insulated attic storage deck with cellulose tightly packed under it, this allows for the areas to remain insulated while offering an area for people to walk for maintenace purposes or extra storage. Along with the added insulation, it was discovered that the fold-up attic stairs were leaking a large amount of outside attic air into the home, to solve this issue, Dr. Energy recommended the installation of a David Lewis foam stair cover for this specific issue. After applying these solutions to their home, the owners could notice a makor difference in the level of comfort in their home as well as lower energy bills.
Over 17" of cellulose now insulates the attic.
