This "before" photo of this Corvallis attic shows how the pink insulation is really just an air filter. The pink insulation is no longer pink since air carrying the dirt and nasty mold was leaking up through the ceiling into the attic. See those lines radiating out? That is where dirt and mold were collecting! This "after" photo shows the same attic, with all the leaky areas sealed up before our crew blew in the cellulose insulation. The homeowner is now much more comfortable in this older home.
To eliminate having cold floors in the winter, this Corvallis homeowner chose to encapsulate the crawl space. This includes removing all the old, inefficient insulation, the old vapor barrier, and encapsulating the whole crawl space with the special liner materials. These create a continuous air and moisture barrier between the ground and the underneath of their home.

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 void to form. 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!
All the heat that you pump throughout your home in the winter can cost more than you anticipated. One of the largest reasons for the high bill you see every month is that your home is not properly insulated and the heat is escaping outside. Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver is your Corvallis expert for all types of insulation including rigid foam, attic, crawl space, blown-in, and spray foam insulation. Wherever the air is escaping we can insulate it whether it be through walls, your basement, your attic, or in the crawl spaces.
Our goal is to make your Corvallis home more comfortable, more health friendly, and less expensive to heat and cool. In our energy audit evaluation, we inspect your home and provide reports on the condition of major systems like ductwork and insulation. We then check air leakage areas throughout the house to identify weak points where you are losing energy. We then provide recommendations with realistic expectations for energy improvements and offer a free estimate for proposed work.
Wanting her home to be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, this Corvallis, OR homeowner found us on the internet and called to set up an appointment. Our Energy Consultant climbed under the house and into the attic and found many issues. She prioritized and started with the attic.
This photo shows what our Energy Consultant and our installation crew found in the attic. It had some fiberglass but certainly not enough to do much insulating. It’s also not the best material for insulating.
Our crew removed all the old insulation, air sealed the leaks, and then blew in TruSoft™ blown-in cellulose insulation. This makes a very thick blanket in the attic, keeping warm air inside the house in winter, and keeping out the hot air from the attic in the summer. She was very happy with our insulation crew and with the results!
When this client bought their older home last year, they knew they were going to need to have insulation work done. They didn't want to wait years to finally live in a home that is comfortable and uses less energy. After meeting with our owner Josh, they chose to start with the attic work. Our crew did air sealing, re-did the vents, added new bath fans, and added blown-in cellulose. They loved the result and were very thankful for our polity and friendly crew.
This Corvallis homeowner knew there was a duct disconnected under her home, and that the insulation around a previously leaky pipe needed to be replaced.
We helped her make her home more comfortable by repairing the duct system connected to the air handler. Our crew also tore out the old insulation around the water leak area that was not doing an insulating anymore and replaced it.
The homeowner is happy with the results and asked us to come out again for a more thorough whole home evaluation.
