Started in 1977, Beneficial Energy Products has been a successful weatherization and insulation contractor for over 35 years. Located at 450 West Avenue in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Beneficial Energy is family owned and family run. With a comprehensive understanding of weatherization, ranging from residential insulation to the installation of windows and doors, we can help you conquer any of your insulation needs. However, our knowledge is just one simple reason why a Beneficial estimate will be Beneficial to you.
At Beneficial Energy Products, we have specialized in residential insulation and weatherization work for over 35 years. Whether your weatherization needs are exterior, such as wall insulation, roof venting, and weatherstripping, or interior, such as attic insulation, basement airsealing, and kneewall insulation, we have the expertise and capabilities to handle even the most difficult of jobs. Using a combination of blown cellulose, faced and unfaced fiberglass, and ridged insulation foam board, Beneficial Energy will fortify your house against energy-costing air leaks and the elements of the season.
Furthermore, along with our knowledge of insulation and weatherization, we can help restore the beauty to your house with the installation of new windows and doors. Window leaks are a major cause of high heating bills in the winter and high energy bills in the summer, but Beneficial Energy can help eliminate the problem with the installation of high quality windows that include double pane, Low E glass and sashes that interlock into the window sill to minimize air flow through a window’s most vulnerable area.
For over 30 years, Beneficial Energy Products has been a partner of the state of Rhode Island helping low income individuals and families, the elderly, and people with disabilities reduce their cost of living through community Weatherization Assistance Programs. By providing quality insulation and home repair work to these houses, Beneficial Energy has proudly helped improve the energy efficiency of Rhode Island. Currently we are honored to be working with Blackstone Valley Community Action Program (BVCAP) and East Bay Community Action Program.
