Reliable Attic Insulation Solutions For Keizer 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!

Case Studies From Keizer
This Keizer, OR house was in the escrow step of the sale, and the buyer wanted the wet crawl space fixed.
Attic in Keizer, OR Home Now Well Insulated to Keep Conditioned Air Inside the Home
As their utility bill was consistently running at or over $300 a month, this Keizer, OR couple called us for an appointment to have their home evaluated.
Our Energy Consultant found some parts of the attic had no insulation. There were also lots of can lights cut into the attic, and they didn't have covers so there were LOTS of points where the conditioned air in their home was escaping into the attic.
Our insulation crew started by removing the old, inefficient fiberglass. They then installed can light covers, and spray-foamed around each to seal them. Other air leak areas were sealed.
The attic was then re-insulated to the higher R-60 level with TruSoft(tm) blown-in cellulose.
Most homes need a variety of solutions working together to give the maximum results. Their home is now much more comfortable.
Keizer, OR Crawl Space Infested with Mice
This homeowner met us at the home show in Salem and set an appointment for one of our Energy Consultants to investigate the crawl space in this Keizer, OR home. He knew there were issues with insulation and moisture.
Besides finding the insulation hanging down (photo), and standing water, he found evidence of lots of mice living under the home (photo). The owner moved forward with a crawl space encapsulation system to mitigate all these issues.
Ductwork in Keizer, OR Home Sealed and Re-Insulated
The photo of ductwork in this Keizer, Oregon home shows the tell-tale black marks that mean there is a leak in the ductwork. The fiberglass insulation is an air filter, so as air pushes out into this crawl space from the ductwork, the air leaves dust. This homeowner chose our company to re-seal all his ducting plus re-insulate it. So now, he is not heating the crawl space!
