Home Near Siletz, OR Upgrades Attic with Cellulose to Make Home More Comfortable
This homeowner called Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver to investigate the attic as the home was not comfortable in winter or summer.
Our crew removes all the old pink fiberglass insulation for two reasons:
1) If you add insulation on top of the old stuff, it just gives critters a nice warm blanket on top of them—they will still live in your attic.
2) Without removing the old insulation, you cannot get at the areas that need to be sealed up before new insulation is blown on top. An amazing number of houses are leaky; air they were paying to heat or cool was just leaking out into the attic because of the stack effect.
Our insulation crew then blew in TruSoft™ cellulose insulation that is treated with borate to deter critters from nesting in it.

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!
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Include:
spray foam works in all areas of the home

Home Insulation Company
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 Siletz 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 Siletz 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.
Job Stories From Siletz, OR
Siletz, OR Attic Needing to Be Re-Insulated and Sealed
These owners needed to re-insulate their Siletz, OR home’s attic now that they had completed a lot of remodel work. The attic insulation had never been adequate and with all the remodel work, there were areas that didn’t even have any insulation. (see photo)
After meeting with an Energy Consultant from Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver, they chose to have the attic sealed where the air was leaking, re-route the bath fan to the outside (rather than dumping the moist air into the attic!) and then our insulation crew blew in TruSoft™ cellulose to the higher R-60 value. This is now a much more comfortable home to live in!
