Donald S. of Newtown, CT called Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut about a discomfort in his home during these hot summer months. We sent out one of our best Home Energy Specialists, Steve Machnicz, who studied every inch of the attic and located problematic areas throughout the home that could be the culprits of their home losing conditioned air. He communicated with the homeowner about their attic being improperly insulated with fiberglass batts and the air ducts leaking their conditioned air into the attic and being warmed by the hot air in the space. He also noted that the garage had an uninsulated ceiling that was making the room above incredibly hot in the summer and cold in the winter. The homeowner and Steve worked out a few fool-proof solutions that will make his home much more comfortable and energy efficient!
We sent out the trusted crew lead by Clive Burrell who quickly got to work. They began by removing the existing insulation in the attic and using an expanding sprayable foam to air seal the entirety of the attic. . The ducts originally were incredibly leaky, which meant the homeowners were spending money conditioning air and losing it in the hot attic! Their next step was to install blown-in TruSoft Cellulose insulation into the attic. They then densely packed the garage cielings with TruSoft Cellulose as well.
The homeowner couldn’t be happier with his home’s transformation and is looking forward to increased comfort and future savings!
A crawl space under this Glastonbury, CT’s first-floor bedroom was created when the original owners of the house put on an addition. The space had a dirt floor and vents to the outdoors. A number of years ago, the homeowners hired someone to insulate the crawl space. Insulation was installed on all of the surfaces and covered with plastic. When the homeowners checked the condition of the crawl space in the early summer, they discovered that the insulation was moldy and falling down, the vents were rotted (allowing access to the house by critters of all sizes), and the space had very high humidity. The homeowners couldn't call us fast enough!
A full encapsulation of the crawl space was a necessity. CleanSpace was installed on top of the dirt floor to prevent moisture from seeping through. The SilverGlo panels were placed on the wall to act as a radiant barrier. Lastly, a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to keep humidity below 55%. Now, with this full crawl space encapsulation and a SaniDry dehumidifier installed by our company, the homeowners now have a clean, dry, critter-free space under their bedroom!
