This client called us to inspect under their house as cats have torn it up. The first step--install a new crawl space door to prevent more damage by the kitties.
This Eugene client had been finding air leaks in his ductwork and knew he was losing heat and wasting energy and money. The ductwork was haphazardly wrapped (see "before" photo) and wasn't doing much good. Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver spray-foamed the ductwork to seal all leaks and keep the heat in the ductwork, and now his home is much warmer!

This homeowner found our company listed on the EWEB listing of local companies. Josh performed a whole home evaluation from top to bottom since he told Josh he sets his thermostat for 66 in the winter and 78 in the summer to save money. He wants his home to be more comfortable and energy efficient, to make the floors warmer, and to reduce allergens. Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver's crew encapsulated the crawl space and also added a SaniDry CX air system. The leaks in the attic were air sealed, and the can lights were air sealed, before our crew blew in the cellulose insulation. The homeowner noticed the difference right away!

The homeowners in Eugene, Oregon wanted to convert their garage into a living space suitable to be available to renters. They searched the web and called Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver. Curtis, the energy specialist sat down with them and discussed their options. They decided to remove the garage door, frame the wall with a window and use batt insulation and then drywall with tape and texture.
The converting of a garage to a living space was a vision they had since buying their home and they were excited to watch the transformation unfold. They chose Simonton Windows to allow bright light and fresh air into the place. For the flooring they turned the cold hard concrete into a beautiful living room with ThermalDry Insulated Flooring, which restricts moisture and mold growth. On top of the insulated flooring they went with a beautiful laminate flooring from Mill Creek.
The homeowners are so pleased with the results. They say it is gorgeous and just what they had envisioned.
Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver was happy to be able to help serve another satisfied customer.

Dr Energy Saver used TruSoft blown in cellulose because it is an excellent insulation to keep out the drafts and to reduce the heat.
Now Dan can enjoy staying comfortable in his home all year round and Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver was happy to help him out.
Richard and Gladys F. wanted a more comfortable house. He experienced a cold home in winter and home too hot in the summer. Richard and Gladys had Josh Lowe's Dr Energy Saver install their HVAC system and knew it would be a great company to install their insulation and to seal their kitchen soffits.
By insulating their attic, sealing the kitchen soffits, and routing the four bathroom fans to vent to the outside Richard and Gladys are now very happy to be living in comfort.
The homeowners in Eugene, OR felt drafty from their outside doors. They decided the best solution was to weatherize the four exterior doors and their two French doors.

Lee dreaded going into the summer months again without air conditioning, especially with record high temperatures in the forecast. In the summer his home was scorching hot due to his house being built in the forties. But then in the winter it was too cold.
After setting an appointment for a whole home energy evaluation, Lee A. decided to remove all of his old insulation and replace it with blown-in insulation. It was air sealed and insulated by closing all accessible penetrations and top plates using expanding polyurethane foam and then blowing in TruSoft cellulose. TiteShell was installed around the recessed light fixture and then sealed with polyurethane foam.
Lee is pleased with the work and has already noticed a difference in his comfort level. He's staying cool this summer in Eugene!
