    Great Job! We are satisfied. The installation has certainly made a difference in our upstairs. When we experience a problem, the crew was on top of it immediately. They worked long hours in horrible heat to fix the problem and to be certain that it was completed to our satisfaction.

    Dr. Energy Saver completed my crawlspace encapsulation and I wanted to write and tell you that I’m more than pleased with the results. The work was clean, efficient, and completed on time. The benefits I have received are far more than expected. I was promised a more comfortable and healthier home with excellent quality products and that’s exactly what I’ve received.

    Customer Testimonial

              Ruthea Miller is the owner of Miller Mauro, a successful Graphic Design studio in business for over 30 years in Wilmington, DE. In this video she speaks about her experience with Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva, and how the company helped turn an office remodeling nightmare into a New Year's day story to remember. It all started when her partner and husband called in some contractors to remove the ceiling above the kitchen in their Silverside Rd. office. When the ceiling was removed an 20-inch layer of loose-fill insulation fell all over the kitchen floor and created a messy dust cloud all over the building. It was a weekend at the end of December and Ruthea started to call companies for help with cleaning up the mess. Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva was the only company that called them back. Not being able to come on a Tuesday as scheduled due to an equipment problem, the company offered to come on New Year's Day for the cleanup, and so they did. After the thorough cleanup was performed, the kitchen and other areas of the building were also insulated with spray foam. According to Ruthea the difference in comfort is noticeable and the office is much warmer during the winter.

Case Studies I've worked on:

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Duct Cleaning in Grasonville, MD
    Before
    Duct Cleaning in Grasonville, MD
    After

    Homeowner's in Grasonville, MD., needed to have their ducts cleaned. Homeowner's tend to forget about the other aspects of their home because they don't see them every day comapred to the other rooms in their home. 

    In a six room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created every day. The dust is pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5-7 times per day. This ongoing process creates contaminants in the duct work. This can cause allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. 

    To solve this problem, Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva will clean and aeroseal the duct work to prevent future leakage. 

    The process begins by a camera being lowered into the duct work. The camera shows live video footage of how the ducts look. This determines if the ducts need to be cleaned or not. Next, the registers are taken off to be cleaned. Then, the duct work is cleaned with a 360 circular rotating brush called the Rotobrush. This brush cleans every angle of the duct work thoroughly. The dust and dirt is then collected into a vacuum. Finally, the duct work is treated with an antimicrobial treatment. 

  • Crawl Space Encapsulation in Queenstown, MD
    Before
    Crawl Space Encapsulation in Queenstown, MD
    After

    Homeowners in Queenstown, MD contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva because they had concerns about the consistently wet condition of their crawl space. In order to correct the problem and prevent any further water damage the production crew installed a drainage system around the perimeter of the crawl space. The drainage system will collect and carry water to the SmartSump removing it from the crawl space. After installing the drainage system the crew encapsulated the crawl space complete with CleanSpace liner on the floor and SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation on the walls with spray foam air sealing in the rim joists.

    After these homeowner's had an energy evaluation performed on their home they were shocked at the results.  Their main problem was in the attic because it was under insulated and not properly sealed.  Therefore, it was losing a lot of energy.  They chose to have our SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation with radiant barrier installed. SilverGlo will not only insulate their Cambridge, MD home preventing unwanted air and temperatures in through the attic, it will also reflect indoor temperatures back into the home keeping them more comfortable while using less energy!

  • Attic Insulation Upgrade in Bear, DE
    Before
    Attic Insulation Upgrade in Bear, DE
    After

    This homeowner contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva stating, "We are losing the battle with heating our home." To find a solution to their comfort issues we sent Home Comfort Specialist Michael Alicknavitch to do an inspection of their entire home. In doing so, he found that the attic lacked an adequate amount of insulation as well as air sealing. The production crew removed the old insulation, air sealed the attic and installed blown-in cellulose insulation.

  • Leaky Can Lights in Newark, DE
    Before
    Leaky Can Lights in Newark, DE
    After

    A can light is recessed lighting in a ceiling and is installed by simply cutting a hole out and placing the light over it.  This type of installation allows air to leak between the fixture and the drywall to the room or attic above causing a lot of energy loss.  When an incandescent or halogen bulb is on it burns at 380 degrees fahrenheit.  Air this hot rises at a faster rate and can cause the fixture to leak air faster as well.  Because the lights burn at such a high heat most can light covers have not been rated to have insulation against them due to the fire hazard they create when turned on.  

    Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva can take care of sealing and insulating these fixtures with TiteShell can light covers.  These covers prevent the flow of air from floor to floor and they also keep all of the heat generated by the bulb in the room the light is in.  Now insulation can safely lay against this light fixture without the fear of fire due to high temperatures from the bulb. 

    For optimal energy conservation, install compact florescent bulbs (CFL's) or LED bulbs.  These types of bulbs not only use less wattage to operate, they also burn at a much lower temperature making your home much easier to cool in the summer time.

  • SilverGlo Attic Insulation in Dover, DE
    Before
    SilverGlo Attic Insulation in Dover, DE
    After

    Even though this attic appears to be well insulated the homeowners still dealt with uncomfortable conditions in their home year round.  After meeting with one of our Certified Home Comfort Specialists, these homeowners decided to upgrade their attic with our SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation.  Infused with graphite in the foam that acts as tiny heat reflectors, the R-value of SilverGlo is 24% higher than standard EPS foam making the home that much more comfortable and efficient.  Just so the insulation doesn't have to do all of the work alone, SilverGlo has radiant barrier on both sides which reflect heat taking it's efficiency level even higher.

  • Exhaust Fan Properly Vented in Dover, DE
    Before
    Exhaust Fan Properly Vented in Dover, DE
    After

    Are all of your home's exhaust fans properly vented? These Dover, DE homeowners complained of cold floors.  Part of the issue stemmed from an under-insulated cantilever.  While preparing to replace the standard batted fiberglass with a much more energy efficient rigid foam board insulation with radiant barrier named SilverGlo, our crew discovered a bathroom exhaust duct which had never been properly vented.  If left alone the unvented exhaust could have caused these homeowners grief in the future.  Our crew not only replaced their old insulation with the state of the art SilverGlo, but they also created a way for the exhaust to be properly vented.  A vent cover was attached to the soffit that lined up perfectly with the exhaust duct when put back into place.  

  • Insulation Upgrade in Dover, DE
    Before
    Insulation Upgrade in Dover, DE
    After

    The owners of this Dover, DE home dealt with uncomfortable conditions in their home even though it would seem that they had enough insulation. The insulation fills the cavities in walls so that must be the highest R-Value, right? Wrong! Standard batted fiberglass with an R-Value of 19 is about 6.5" thick. Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva has installed SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation that is just  4" thick with a higher R-Value and comes complete with radiant barrier on both sides to deflect direct heat off of the home while preventing conditioned air inside from escaping resulting in a more comfortable and energy efficient home.

    Insulation Upgrade in Lincoln, DE
    After

    Despite putting an extra layer of batted fiberglass insulation in the attic bringing the R-value up to 38, this Lincoln, DE homeowner still had issues with comfort at home and high energy bills.  Here, Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva has upgraded this attic from the standard batted fiberglass insulation, which still allows the flow of air through it, to blown in cellulose insulation. This cellulose will not only prevent the flow of air but it has also been installed to an R-value of 60 which will make this homeowner much more comfortable as well as cutting down for the cost of heating and air for the home.

  • Insulating over a Sloped Stairwell Ceiling in Wilmington, Delaware
    Before
    Insulating over a Sloped Stairwell Ceiling in Wilmington, Delaware
    After

    When a stairwell has a sloped ceiling forming a big triangular space that is open to the attic, it creates a heat loss in the winter and a heat gain in the summer inside of your home. 

    Dr. Energy Saver went into this home located in Wilmington, Delaware where the customers had concerns about the amount of money spewing out into their fuel and electric bills. Also making the inside conditions of the home very uncomfortable. As our In Home Comfort Specialist inspect the attic, he found the open area sloped ceiling that was open to the attic. That area had the most impact on the cost home ownership. 

    Our production team goes in immediately attacks the issue at hand which is to install our Airtight Structural Cover over the open cavity inside of the attic. After this is installed, we can now blow over the structure and insulate the whole attic properly making this home more comfortable year around and also lowering their fuel and electric bills.

    Before

    After

    Holes and spaces in your rim joist allows the hot or cold air from outside to enter through your basement and penetrate the floor boards.  This causes varying temperatures in different rooms of the home, and ultimately, an uncomfortable home.  It is important to make sure that all holes are covered up and air sealed to prevent this from happening.

  • Air Sealing Rim Joists in Ocean City, MD
    Before
    Air Sealing Rim Joists in Ocean City, MD
    After

    The rim joist of a home is rarely insulated and never sealed during construction. These joints and gaps between the framing allow for a lot of outside air to enter the home. This means that whatever temperature the outdoor air currently is, the same temperature air is being leaked into the home. This could make for very cold floors in the winter and hot, humid conditions for the crawl space in the summer.
