Before & After. The SuperAttic system protects your house against energy losses by putting a continuous & airtight layer of foam insulation beneath the attic rafters and inside the attic's gable walls.
Making a house as airtight and well-insulated as possible is essential to cutting heating and cooling costs. This sealing and insulating priority is more important in the attic than anywhere else in the house. The SuperAttic system from Dr. Energy Saver overcomes the limitations of other attic energy upgrades, offering superior energy performance throughout the year as well as a neater, cleaner appearance and more usable attic space.
The top of the house is a high priority when improving a home's energy performance. This specialized attic insulation system eliminates the shortcomings of conventional attic sealing and insulating strategies, resulting in a clean, open and accessible attic space that's super energy efficient.

The SuperAttic system utilizes proprietary SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation panels to fully seal and insulate the attic directly beneath the roof rafters and inside the gable ends. The SuperAttic system creates a continuous barrier without thermal bridging to compromise energy performance. SuperAttic maintains roof ventilation without allowing exterior air to enter the attic space. As an added benefit, SilverGlo™ insulation panels include an integral radiant barrier that further reduces heating and cooling costs.
Installing a SuperAttic system in a typical house usually takes just a day or two. Unlike conventional attic insulation and sealing upgrades, the SuperAttic system allows attic flooring and storage areas to remain in place, eliminating the need to tear out flooring material and relocate stored items.
Once and done. A typical SuperAttic installation can be completed in one or two days, and is a permanent, no-maintenance "green" improvement.
The SuperAttic system can help many homeowners save energy and cut heating and cooling expenses. But it's more suitable for some attics than for others. To find out if a SuperAttic system makes sense for your house, see how many of the following statements are true.
If more than two of the statements above apply to you and your house, a SuperAttic system could be a smart investment. Contact us today for your Free Estimate for attic insulation in Ankeny, Des Moines, Ames, and nearby areas.
Building scientists, the experts who study how buildings use and lose energy, have for years known that the Stack Effect causes houses to lose more energy through the attic than anywhere else. Inside the house, warm air rises naturally by convection, leaking into the attic through numerous gaps, cracks and passageways. Air leaking out of the house causes an equal volume of outside air to be drawn into the house through leaks in lower areas. With conditioned air leaking out of the house and unconditioned air leaking in, you're wasting energy and money 24 hours a day.
Tight sealing techniques. Each SilverGlo™ insulation panel is sealed to attic framing and to neighboring panels. The result is a thick, uniform layer of insulation that includes a radiant barrier for additional energy savings.
Sealing leaks in the attic floor can short-circuit the Stack Effect, but it's usually impossible to do this effectively. There are simply too many leaks and too many obstacles like existing home insulation, ductwork and attic flooring, so air leakage and energy losses continue. Blowing additional fiberglass or cellulose insulation into the attic will reduce energy losses, but the effectiveness on this added insulation is compromised by gaps around recessed light fixtures, HVAC components and attic flooring.
Dr. Energy Saver invented the SuperAttic system to overcome common attic insulation and air-sealing problems by offering homeowners a high-performance alternative to blowing fiberglass or cellulose insulation into attic spaces. The SuperAttic system has already drawn praise from customers who are enjoying vastly-improved energy performance along with attic storage and the system's neat, clean appearance.
