Dr. Energy Saver, A Blackdog Affiliate Case Studies: A Super Attic in Billerica, MA

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017 by Gwen Hurd


Jennifer was not new to the world of insulation. She had experienced ice dams in the past and had tried to take care of the problem with other businesses. One business told her she needed more ventilation, so she put vents in her attic. Another business told her she needed more air sealing, so she did that too... but nothing was working. Every winter, the ice dams would be back. 


Dr. Energy Saver Northshore was able to help. We performed an energy audit on Jennifer's house and determined the best course of action. For Jennifer, we reccomended the SuperAttic. The SuperAttic looks like it's from some strange 70s version of the future, it's all silver! But it is incredibly clean and incredibly efficient. Where fiberglass can get really gross after several years, SilverGlo foam board insulation will stay pristine. Animals don't live in it and it isn't greatly effected by moisture. Now Jennifer's attic is insulated correctly and her ice dams will be greatly reduced.
