Keeping It Cool In Malden, MA
The majority of the homeowners we speak with are struggling with keeping their home warm. Sheldon, a Malden homeowner, was having the opposite problem. He could not get his house to stay cool during summer. A house that is too hot can be even more unbearable than a house that is too cold- in the wintertime, we can always throw a down comforter over our beds... but in the summer... there's no escaping the heat. Sheldon was frustrated with the heat and he knew that his HVAC sytem wasn't the problem.
Dr. Energy Saver Northshore completed an energy audit for Sheldon, we found the problems, and then we fixed them. To keep Sheldon's home cooler, we removed Sheldon's existing ineffective insulation, we air sealed and insulated his attic with cellulose, we sealed up the kitchen soffit, we insulated his catwalk, installed can light covers, and spray foamed the rim joist. It sounds like quite a lot, doesn't it!?
With all this done, Sheldon has a house that stays cool!
