Orlando, a North Andover homeowner, was experiencing massive ice dams and frozen pipes. He had an energy audit done through a different company, they recommended a layer of blown in cellulose. That was all they recommended. Orlando was curious to hear what we had to say.
Dr. Energy Saver Northshore agreed with the other company, Orlando could use some blown in cellulose... he also needed to seal all the open spaces in the attic, remove the existing fiberglass insulation, and spray foam the sides of the attic (the knee walls). Sometimes there are simple fixes to problems, but more of than not, every home requires a unique combination of solutions. Orlando decided to go for the real solution to his issues and now his ice dams are reduced and his pipes remain operational.
