DBS Case Studies: Insulation & Energy Efficiency Work in Washburn, WI.

Friday, October 12th, 2018 by Andrew Thorson


DBS received an inquiry to learn more about our energy services because a home in Washburn, WI had very high utility bills and had a problem with icicles every year. When the temperatures drop and homes have poor insulation, specifically in the attic, it can create a very cold household. Because the attic is not holding the air in, the heating that your home is producing is moving straight up and out of your home. By insulating and sealing the cracks in your home, it holds the heat in much more efficiently. The icicles on your roof and the overall temperature of the home are greatly improved.


We went to the home to provide a free quote and give our customers more information. Upon arrival, we were able to find a solution to the household problems. DBS suggested multiple services to help with the efficiency of the home, first being air seal and insulation. This will help to keep the homes heating and cooling inside, sealing places where it can otherwise escape. Insulation will help the home the temperature they want, while also lowering utility bills. We can also work to renovate the ceilings to keep the heating/cooling inside. By adding our spray foam insulation service, this would help the roof structure and fix previous damage that the house had. The icicle problem and high utility bills would both be significantly improved with the work of DBS. We have many options for cost-efficient, energy-efficient solutions to help you bring down your bills and maintain the temperature inside.
