This is a small portion of an energy efficiency home improvement project where we replaced basement windows with energy efficient Everlast windows & sunhouse covers, a Bilco door, structural improvements, and spray foam along the rim joists. Our customers are often aware of the importance of having energy efficient doors and windows, but may often overlook the benefits of insulating the rim joist of their home. With spray foam insulation we provide a well-needed coating of insulation that has the added benefit of air sealing this section of the home.
The yellow insulation in these rim joists looks effective, but it was letting air pass right through it. The new insulation helps create a better air seal on the home and has led to a noticeably more comfortable home.
A homeowner in Bayfield, WI contacted DBS regarding an insulation issue. The basement of their home was unfinished, and the fiberglass insulation was not sufficient enough to keep the area warm and energy-saving. In need of a solution, a design specialist went to inspect the property and give a free,no-obligation estimate for the insulation service. It was decided that the rim joist would need spray foam insulation to better seal off any cold,drafty air from entering the basement area. Spray foam is an optimal solution for better home insulation, and will now help this homeowner save energy and stay warm during the frigid winter months.
These homeowners in Bayfield, WI reached out to DBS for help with reducing heating and cooling costs in their home.
Dr. Energy Saver® Design Specialist, Hunter Riley went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate. Hunter measured where heat was being lost and found the rim joists to be a problematic area. The solution was to install 3" inch thick closed cell spray foam along the rim joists. This creates an airtight connection and eliminates outdoor air from entering the home. A DBS Foreman and their production crew did a great job installing the insulation.
This home is now healthy, safe, and comfortable all year round!
This homeowner in Drummond, Wisconsin was concerned about heating in the home. Wanting to stay warm throughout the winter, this homeowner decided to get the home insulated to a high quality. After doing some research, the homeowner reached out to another company to get a quote. However, that company did not respond after the inspection, and the homeowner decided to reach out again, only this time to DBS. Following a brief friendly phone call with the office staff, an appointment was made to have Henrik Makitalo, a system design specialist go out to the home for a free inspection. Henrik was able to give a written estimate that same day and after a comfortable price agreement, a date was promptly set to have a crew come out to perform the installation. The installation of the high-quality spray foam proved to make a difference in the insulation and comfort of the home. Finishing the final step of the smooth process with DBS, the happy owner was able to enjoy a warm home throughout the cold winter.
