Dr. Energy Saver, A Blackdog Affiliate Case Studies: Renovation and Insulation in Wilton, NH

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 by Gwen Hurd


Sean bought a duplex in Wilton, NH. His plan was to completely gut the property, renovate, and rent it out. After gutting everything, Sean realized he was missing something super important... insulation. But he didn't want to call just any insulation company, he wanted to be sure that he saw the return on his investment. Sean told us he wanted the "most bang for the buck."


Since Sean's property was gutted, we recommended that he start with the two spaces that can save him the most money. The basement, where air leaks into the home, and the attic, where air leaks out. Dr. Energy Saver Northshore used spray foam in the attic and used the CleanSpace system in the basement. CleanSpace involves a special liner with drainage, to ensure moisture has a space to go, a floor insulation designed to protect spaces from the earth's moisture, and a liner that makes the space clean and usable.
