The professional manner that the energy audit was handled - all matters were explained completely. The office staff was courteous and helpful. The installation crews arrived on time and were courteous. After the job was completed the crew performed an excellent job with cleanup.

Attic insulation installation is a VERY popular energy-saving improvement in Delaware & E. Shore Maryland. That's because more energy (and money!) is lost through the attic than through any other part of the house.
What makes matters worse is that most homes have attic insulation that's inadequate and/or poorly installed. Existing attic insulation in many homes may be as minimal as R-19.
In greater Delmarva, Delaware & E. Shore Maryland for your home to go through a cold winter with so little insulation is like you wearing a t-shirt in a snowstorm.
What your house really needs is the equivalent of a thick down-filled parka.
More specifically, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends between R-49 and R-60 of attic insulation for homes in Delaware & E. Shore Maryland. That's at least a 16-in.-thick blanket of fiberglass insulation!

If your attic is costing you money because of inadequate insulation,
Dr. Energy Saver can help.
Larry Janesky explains that insulation is also needed in warmer areas. Insulation prevents heat transfer. It prevents hot air from being transferred to the outside in the wintertime, and prevents the attic's scorching heat from being transferred into the living areas of your home during the summer.
Baffles keep ventilation channels open. Plastic spacers are installed between rafters in the attic to maintain a vent space beneath the roof surface after new insulation is installed.
Air-sealing is a critical step because it stops conditioned interior air from leaking into the attic. Dr. Energy Saver uses a variety of materials and techniques to stop this energy-wasting air leakage.
Installing baffles ensures proper attic ventilation. Sized to fit between the rafters in the attic, plastic baffles maintain a ventilation space between the attic's soffit vents (located along the eaves) and the ridge vent. Installing baffles before adding more attic insulation helps avoid damage from ice dams and excess moisture.
Old insulation can be reused most of the time. As long as the existing insulation is not wet, moldy or overly compressed, it can usually be put back into place after the attic has been air-sealed and before new insulation is installed.
Sealing air leaks and maintaining a comfortable roof temperature means you'll be preventing and removing ice damming too!
