Reliable Attic Insulation Solutions For Happy Valley Homeowners
High utility bills and rooms that are too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter are just a few signs that your attic may not be properly insulated. Upgrading your attic insulation is one of the most simple, cost-effective ways to improve comfort. We all know that hot air rises so without proper attic insulation you could literally be throwing your money away when you try to heat your home in the winter. However, attic insulation provides year-round benefits. Attic insulation can help just as much in the warmer months by creating a barrier between the top of your home and the harsh summer sun. You lose the most energy through the top of your home so attic proper attic insulation is guaranteed to save you money and increase home comfort.
Crawl spaces tend to soak up the natural cold or heat around your home and transfers it into the air in your crawl space. This will cause your energy bills to rise and your home’s comfort to decrease. If you have utilities in your crawl space such as your water heater, furnace, or hot water pipes, your energy bills will suffer even more. The fluctuation in temperature will force your heating and air conditioning systems to work harder, causing your energy costs to rise. For your crawl space insulation to perform like it should, it's essential to install the right type of crawl space insulation, the right amount of crawl space insulation, and use the correct installation technique. At Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver we can improve the condition of your crawl space with products that are durable, long-lasting, and made especially for the crawl space environment!
Spray Foam Insulation Experts
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!

Room Made More Comfortable in Happy Valley, OR Home
When you have a room in your home that is uncomfortable, and all the other rooms are good, there must be a good reason. This Happy Valley, OR family met with our energy consultant and explained what they were looking to accomplish. When he investigated in the attic, there was some insulation above this room, but it was fiberglass batting, and it also didn’t cover everything. Fiberglass acts as an air filter rather than a good insulator.
They chose to have the old insulation removed, the air leakage areas sealed (which we could see once the fiberglass was removed), and then TruSoft™ blown-in cellulose insulation added in. This acts as a big blanket that will keep the warmed air inside that room in the winter.
