In Toms River, NJ this family was experiencing drastic temperature differences in all the bed rooms. We had the solution, we air sealed around the can lights and insulated with our TruSoft Blown In Cellulose. We also left room for storage.
Picture shows an bathroom fan vent uninsulated. This causes potential condensation when warm humid air is vented through a cold space. The after picture show proper insulation on same vent.
Typical attic soffit blocked by fiberglass insulation. After picture shows a soffit vent baffle peaking out above nice deep insulation. This maintains good attic ventilation.
The pictures shows a David Lewis pull down stair cover as seen from the attic. Creating and effective insulation and air barrier between the hallway and the attic. These pay for themselves in energy savings in one season and are very easy to move.
Although the attic is not a good place to store anything, many houses just need the storage area. The before picture shows unorganized storage all over an underinsulated attic. The after picture shows a pull down stair cover. a solid decked area (that you can walk on and slide boxes accross), insulation retaining dams and a attic beyond the storage area air sealed and insulated to R-60. Dr. Energy Saver division of Home Comfort & Energy Experts changed the shape of the storage area allowing for more usable storage and a much larger insulated attic flat.
