This homeowner called us out to their home in South Windsor, CT to take a look at some serious problems they were experiencing. The main reason they called Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions was because they were having issues with mold in their kitchen and basement. Due to some water damage over time there was mold under the kitchen sink, leaking down onto the rim joist in the basement. Humidity issues in the basement also took a part in that. When we got to the home we asked the homeowner about all of their concerns, for the entire home. The mold issue was their main concern, but they also were experiencing another problem. Their basement was always very uncomfortably humid. The rim joist is the perimeter of the floor framing system along the exterior of the house. The joints and gaps in the framing members allow for a great deal of air leakage in and out of the home. This can result in cold floors, high heating and cooling bills, as well as condensation in the basement and crawlspaces. When its hot and humid out, the homeowner was experiencing this poor air quality. This was due to outside air easily leaking into the home, making the basement an uncomfortable space. First we take care of the kitchen issues, and we can focus on the basement. Now, we know what we need to do to help this homeowner.
The first thing we need to do is spray our Mold-X treatment spray on the effected areas on the rim joist. We make sure we take care of all of the mold in the basement in order to be able to properly air seal with no reoccurring mold issues. After we have completed this step we are ready to air seal. We spray our two-part expanding SprayFoam over the rim joist and end plates. This stops all air leaks from outside and insulates this important part of your home. Dr. Energy Savers SprayFoam has a high insulation value of R7. Since this foam expands after we spray, it seals up all of the gaps, cracks, and joints where air from the outside was easily entering the home. This finally corrected the basement mold and humidity problem. Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this homeowner is now more comfortable, happy, and energy efficiently in their home no matter the season!!
This homeowner called us out to their home to give them an estimate on insulating and air sealing their basement. When we got to the home and went over the concerns these homeowners were experiencing. One of their main concerns were the cold floors throughout the home, and their nasty, damp, dirt vented crawlspace. In the winter, crawlspace vents let cold air directly into the home. Floor insulation sags away from the sub floor and the cold air is able to get above it. This makes the insulation almost useless. In the summer the vents let in warm, humid air. This air gets cooled by the subterranean crawlspace, which causes the relative humidity to go up. When this happens, condensation will form all over the crawlspace surfaces including floor joists and ducts. Mold grows on and wood rots, and insect can easily begin nesting. Musty odors can even travel upstairs into your home to your living space! Eventually flooring will have to be replaced, and mold to be remediation. This damn air from the crawlspace is difficult to cool, and heat creating a bigger electricity bill for homeowners! We knew what we had to do before things got even worse!
To fix the issues with this nasty, damp, dirt vented crawlspace we use out Dr. Energy Saver Crawl Space Insulation System treatment. First we take out all of the old insulation and make sure the dirt floor is all level. Now we are ready to start the process. We seal up vents and all air leaks with our insulated vent covers. Next, we insulate the crawlspace walls with our 4' SilverGlo insulation boards. Dr. Energy Savers SilverGlo Foam Boards are infused with graphite to increase the R-Value by 24% over standard foam. Next, we set down a dimpled plastic drainage mat to create an airspace and thermal break. TerraBlock floor insulation is installed over the dimple mat. Finally, a heavy duty, 20 mil thick crawl space insulation liner is inserted permanently across the entire dirt floor. This is sealed with mechanical fasteners to the wall, and spiked to the floor. The crawl space insulation also contains anti-microbial ingredients. This protects the area from and possible bacteria and fungi growth. Now that this crawlspace is fully insulated, air sealed, and insulated these homeowners can now live happier, healthier, and more energy efficient! Thanks Dr. Energy Saver!
