It serves as an air barrier, smart vapor control, and dense-pack reinforcement all in one.
t Dolphin Insulation, the primary focus is helping homeowners create healthy and energy-efficient environments. “We only use cellulose insulation, which is a healthier, nontoxic alternative to spray foam,” says Amanda Alphen, who co-owns Littleton, Massachusetts-based Dolphin Insulation with her father, Chris Alphen. “We assess each customer’s home or business to see how it could be better sealed to retain heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Keeping out harmful effects, such as allergens and mold, is important, as well, for maintaining healthy indoor air quality.” Amanda and Chris started Dolphin Insulation with Amanda’s sister Tiffany in 2008, shortly after Amanda graduated from high school. Amanda is currently managing the business although Chris is still very much involved. Customers find comfort in knowing there is always someone in the office to answer the phones and respond to their inquiries with a staff that is always accessible. “We love working with our customers and teaching them about how they can take control of their energy bills and create a more comfortable environment in their home,” says Chris. “I love to see the smiles on customers’ faces when we’ve met or exceeded their expectations. That is what drives us to go above and beyond and ensure not only our customers’ satisfaction but also their happiness. The change they feel is like nothing they have ever experienced.”
What inspires you? Doing what we can to help the planet, such as having an energyefficient home, being green, and living sustainably and in a healthy way. Also, grandsons and nephews, Hunter and Jonathan. What was your proudest moment? When Amanda received the Outstanding Woman in Business Award from the Family Business Association. What is your favorite space in your home? Amanda: My sunroom. We have super-insulated it to be a four-season room so we can enjoy the sun on even the coldest day in winter.
