Blown-in Wall Insulation
Dr. Energy Saver's iFoam injection foam system is especially well-suited for upgrading wall insulation. During the application process, the injection foam can flow completely around existing fiberglass batt insulation in wall cavities, filling voids and sealing leaks to increase R-value and eliminate air leaks.
The walls of your house are a major part of the "building envelope" that separates your home's interior living space from the great outdoors. Ideally, your walls contain insulation as well as other structural and finish materials like studs, sheathing, siding and wallboard.
But the truth is that many houses have missing or inadequate wall insulation.
Telltale signs of missing or inadequate wall insulation are cold spots or cold areas of the wall during winter months. If you feel cold drafts around electrical outlets in exterior walls, that's another sign of energy-wasting air leakage and poor wall insulation.
These problems reduce the amount of available living space in your house by making rooms uncomfortable. They also cost you money in the form of unnecessary utility expenses.
Get an expert wall insulation assessment
Instead of trying to guess where your walls might need more insulation or air-sealing to improve comfort and energy efficiency, you're better off calling a home energy expert like Dr. Energy Saver. We have the equipment and expertise to determine how much wall insulation you have, what type it is, and how well it's performing.
We can detect "voids" where insulation is missing, and pinpoint the air leaks that allow conditioned air to escape from your living space and outside air (that's usually too cold or too hot) to enter the house. Air leakage, combined with missing or inadequate insulation, can cost you hundreds of dollars a year in unnecessary utility expenses.
Installing new insulation in wood-framed walls
How do you fill wall cavities that you can't see with new insulation? This task is impossible for many contractors, but Dr. Energy Saver can accomplish this energy-saving upgrade using industry-leading technology. Depending on conditions at your house, we can fill wall cavities with "dense-pack" cellulose insulation or injection foam insulation. For both techniques, access holes are drilled in walls from inside or outside the house, then the new insulation is injected into each wall cavity and access holes are plugged.
