Comprehensive Home Energy Audits

Assessing your home's current home energy efficiency is critical to figuring out what the current problems are.  Before we work on your home, we will perform a thorough home energy audit to get an idea of what is going on.  Our energy evaluation will give us an idea of what we need to do to fix your home.  After we complete the audit, we will take the time to sit with you and educate you as to what the best plan would be to fix your home, and why.  From there, we can perform any work we think is beneficial to improving the energy efficiency and comfort of your home.

Energy-Efficient Replacement Windows

Did you know that your windows play a big part in improving your home's energy efficiency?  In fact, many windows do not seal as well as they should and allow air to leak out. At Dr. Energy Saver, A Blackdog Affiliate we can install new windows in your home.  Unlike other contractors in the area, we can replace your existing windows with low-e glass! Low-e glass has a coating that emits almost no radiant energy and blocks most ultraviolet (UV) longwave energy, which we feel as heat. Our low-e glass replacement windows help control the temperature in your home all year long. 

Dehumidification & Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Temperature and humidity can have a huge impact on your comfort. Excess moisture in your home can create musty odors and cause mold and mildew, which can aggravate allergies and asthma symptoms. Most homeowners make the mistake of turning up their air conditioner in an effort to reduce humidity. This does very little to improve comfort and increases energy costs. If you live in Andover, you know that humidity is especially high in the summertime. Dr. Energy Saver, A Blackdog Affiliate can install a dehumidifier to help reduce moisture, eliminate odors and improve your home's comfort. Less humidity in the air also means that you'll feel cooler at a higher temperature and will be using less energy to keep your home comfortable. We are Andover's certified installer of SaniDry dehumidifiers. Our dehumidification systems offer high-capacity moisture removal and energy-efficient performance.

Job Stories From Andover, MA
Warming a Colonial in Andover, MA

Colonial homes can be cold. Especially gigantic colonial homes. Our client, an Andover MA homeowner, wanted to make his large colonial home warmer. Specifically, he wanted to focus on his bedroom and bathroom, two spaces where everyone wants to feel cozy. To make this home warmer in the winter and more energy efficient year round, we focused on the attic. We air sealed the attic by installing a stair hatch cover and can light covers. We insulated with blown in cellulose. To make sure the space was even warmer, we insulated the floor between the garage ceiling and the bedroom. Now this colonial home feels as cozy as it looks! 

A Complete Energy Solution in Andover, MA

Kevin, an Andover, MA homeowner, loves doing his own research. Kevin felt like he was spending too much money to keep his home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. So he looked online and tried to find some solutions. In his research, Kevin found The Blower Door Test. He loved the science behind the tool and called us hoping to schedule a Blower Door Test. We told Kevin that we don't ONLY do The Blower Door Test, we test using thermal imaging and smoke pens and all kinds of exciting tools. Kevin was excited to know that we offer a comprehensive evaluation. After evaluating Kevin's home, we discovered a few places where energy efficiency could be improved. We air sealed his attic by wrapping his chimney in rockwool and covering his can lights. Next we used cellulose and foam board to insulate the space. In his basement, we used spray foam to insulate rim joists. Kevin can look forward to lower energy bills and a warmer, more comfortable, home. 

Replacing Insulation in Andover, MA

Sue, an Andover homeowner, replaced her roof a few years ago. She thought that the roof would keep her attic warm and dry. Unfortunately, Sue's new roof had some issues and created some water damage in the attic. The damage ruined Sue's insulation. To replace Sue's insulation, we dense packed cellulose into her cathedral ceiling and attic. Now this Andover home will be warm and cozy all winter long! 

Reducing Ice Dams in Andover, MA

Ice Dams are a pretty big New England problem. Yes, it's cold here, but it's cold in many places. There are other factors that contribute to the ice dam problem. Since the majority of New England homes are not new construction, many homes are not insulted the way they should be. Older forms of insulation (we're looking at you fiberglass) decay over time, especially when homeowners aren't diligent about upkeep. One Andover homeowner started to notice her home seemed much colder than it had in years past. And every winter, ice dams formed along her roof. Dr. Energy Saver used a combination of materials to make this homeowner's life more comfortable and to reduce ice dams. First, we air sealed the attic. To air seal the space, we wrapped the chimney in rock wool, we installed a scuttle hatch cover, and we encapsulated the ducts. Next we used a combination of rigid foam board insulation and cellulose insulation to ensure that the attic was thoroughly insulated. Now this New England homeowner will have reduced ice dams and a more comfortable home!

Attic Insulation in Andover, MA

Kathleen, an Andover MA homeowner, contacted Dr. Energy Saver because she wanted better insulation in her home. Her home has a multi-level attic, a style that is particularly challenging to insulate well.

To insulate a multi-level attic, we recommend a combination of materials. For Kathleen, we used rigid foam board insulation and closed cell spray foam insulation. With these two products, Kathleen's attic is air sealed and insulated. Now Kathleen's home is much more comfortable! 

Reducing Ice Dams in Andover, MA

Even the newest homes, built to today's code, can have energy issues. An Andover, MA homeowner was experiencing serious ice dam problems. But when he contacted the state sponsored energy program, they told him he did not qualify for insulation upgrades because his property was up to code. Well, obviously in this case, code wasn't good enough. The Andover MA homeowner contacted Dr. Energy Saver hoping to find a solution to his ice dam issues. After auditing his home, we found a few ways to reduce the ice. First, we removed and covered the whole house fan, this appliance was creating drafts and allowing air to flow where it was unwelcome. Next we removed the existing insulation. It wasn't good enough and it wasn't working. Lastly, we installed closed cell spray foam to air seal and insulate the attic. Now this homeowner has a home insulated beyond and better than code. He can look forward to many winters ahead with reduced ice dams!

Insulating a Cape in Andover, MA

Bob owns a Cape Cod style house in Andover, MA. He was noticing that he was spending way too much money on energy bills. Bob called Dr. Energy Saver Northshore, and we did an energy audit on his house. Dr. Energy Saver Northshore has specific solutions for Cape style houses, we air seal and insulate the attic, focusing on the knee wall, because it can be a huge source of leakage in this kind of home. We also insulated Bob's chimney and air ducts, to make sure that hot air was not escaping through these heating systems. Now Bob's energy costs are more affordable, and if he stays living in his house for a while, he will completely recover the cost of this project.

A Warm Kitchen in Andover, MA

Kitchens are one of the most used space in the house, often covered in cold tile flooring, and they're usually on the ground floor. Roman, a homeowner in Andover, MA was frustrated with his cold kitchen. He called us because he wanted a warm room to cook and entertain in. 

Dr. Energy Saver Northshore discovered the root of his problem- a poorly insulated crawl space! Instead of just adding more fiberglass insulation, Dr. Energy Saver Northshore removed the existing insulation, used spray foam to insulate rim joists, and used Silverglo and TerraBlock insulation. All this work to Roman's crawl space made for a warm kitchen and a happy homeowner!

Poor attic insulation in old (antique colonial) house. High heating costs and ineffective 2nd floor cooling in the summer
Strawberry Hill Rd in Andover
We purchased our home last year, and have a great sunroom space (~250 sq.ft). The problem is that it's not usable the majority of the time if it's too hot or cold due to the old insulation under the floor joists, and old slider doors. I'd like to understand the cost to upgrade the insulation as that would give me a better indication of the investment on upgrading the floor and sliders in the space makes sense. I look forward to hearing from you. Luis

I am concerned that certain walls are under-insulated. I believe that the attic area was improperly insulated. One bathroom is very cold relative to the rest of the house. We have ice dams form above this "cold" bathroom.
