When this client bought this home earlier this year, his realtor hired us to fix some issues under the home. He was ready for new windows and chose Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver to replace four aluminum windows with vinyl windows from Simonton’s Verona series. He was very happy with the crew and his new windows.
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 Eugene-area homeowner needed to solve the problem of cold spots in the home plus mildew growing inside his rental home. Our Energy Consultant crawled under the home and found a lot of mold growth, standing water, and also some of the insulation under the floor was falling down. To help mitigate the serious water issues causing problems, our crew installed the SmartSump crawl space drainage system. While they our crew was under there, they also installed R-25 fiberglass batting where the insulation was falling down.
This client chose our company due to all the great reviews he saw online. Their home, built in the 1950’s, had old insulation in the attic. Our insulation crew sealed the air leaks in the attic and then blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to the R-49 level. Our crew also wrapped the chimney and routed a bath fan to the outside so it wasn’t blowing moist air into the attic space! He was glad we were quick, professional, and informative.
To make their home warmer in the winter and to lower their electric bill, this Eugene-area homeowner found us on EWEB’s list of contractors and called us for an evaluation and proposal.
Our Energy Consultant found the attic insulation was quite inadequate! (see photo showing how it had gaps where the heat from below could easily escape to the attic) Our insulation crew sealed the air leaks, wrapped the fireplace chimney, and blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to the R-60 level. The homeowner felt like they got their money’s worth.
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.

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.

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!
