It is recommended in most areas of the United States that a home have R-60 insulation in their attics. This is the equivalent of 20" deep fiberglass batting. Cathedral ceilings only allow for 6"-11" of insulation so in order to get the highest R-Value possible our Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva team is dense packing this cathedral ceiling in Cambridge, MD with TruSoft cellulose insulation. Here the team has already removed the ridge vent and and two courses of roof shingles and have also cut back 4" sections of the roof sheathing to gain access.
Here is a closer look at one of the holes cut out to gain access. Inside is a sample of the cellulose that will be blown in to fill the cavity.
This is an inside look at one of the cavities being filled in. A small bit of cellulose insulation has been blown inside. By the time the Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva team is done the entire cavity will be tightly packed with TruSoft cellulose insulation.
The Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva team has attached a pole long enough to reach the bottom of the roof cavities. This will ensure that every crevice is tightly packed with TruSoft cellulose insulation. They will insert the pole to the bottom and slowly pull up as the cavity is filled.
The Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva team has been dense packing each cavity as they move across to the other side of the roof. Notice how every hole has been filled to the top with TruSoft cellulose insulation.
Working together, a couple of members from the Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva team are in the final stages of the dense packed cellulose insulation installation in Cambridge, MD. As one completes filling in the last few cavities another has started the final stages by replacing the plywood and roof shingles.
A homeowner in Cambridge, MD contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva needing more insulation in their home but was unsure how it could be done. This is how the team solved their home comfort issues.
