They were very good at cleaning up everything, putting it in plastic bags and taking it away. It was perfect. I did not have any mess in my lawn
This homeowner in Chester, MD was suffering from old, dirty attic insulation. This may seem like a minor problem, but the results turn into major problems. Over the years, old attic insulation collects dust, dirt, pollen, bugs, etc.
It's time to get rid of the old insulation and welcome the new! Dr. Energy Saver can remove a homeowners old insulation and replace it with new TruSoft Cellulose Insulation.
The new TruSoft Cellulose Insulation also helps the homeowner with their vented attic. Vented attics allow air to leak from inside the home through the attic floor. Once the air from within the home reaches the attic it is lost. This causes drafty rooms, cold floors and higher fuel and electric bills.
With the new TruSoft Cellulose Insulation being installed the homeowner can now receive results such as warmer floors, less drafty rooms and lower fuel/electric bills.
Homeowner's in Grasonville, MD., needed to have their ducts cleaned. Homeowner's tend to forget about the other aspects of their home because they don't see them every day comapred to the other rooms in their home.
In a six room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created every day. The dust is pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5-7 times per day. This ongoing process creates contaminants in the duct work. This can cause allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems.
To solve this problem, Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva will clean and aeroseal the duct work to prevent future leakage.
The process begins by a camera being lowered into the duct work. The camera shows live video footage of how the ducts look. This determines if the ducts need to be cleaned or not. Next, the registers are taken off to be cleaned. Then, the duct work is cleaned with a 360 circular rotating brush called the Rotobrush. This brush cleans every angle of the duct work thoroughly. The dust and dirt is then collected into a vacuum. Finally, the duct work is treated with an antimicrobial treatment.
Homeowners in Queenstown, MD contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva because they had concerns about the consistently wet condition of their crawl space. In order to correct the problem and prevent any further water damage the production crew installed a drainage system around the perimeter of the crawl space. The drainage system will collect and carry water to the SmartSump removing it from the crawl space. After installing the drainage system the crew encapsulated the crawl space complete with CleanSpace liner on the floor and SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation on the walls with spray foam air sealing in the rim joists.
Clean crawl space and proper duct work is very important for better living in the home. A vented dirt crawl space raises your cooling and heating cost by 15% to 25%. The installation shown here consists of CleanSpace® vapor barrier that is put down in multiple layers to completely seal off the home from ground.
After these homeowner's had an energy evaluation performed on their home they were shocked at the results. Their main problem was in the attic because it was under insulated and not properly sealed. Therefore, it was losing a lot of energy. They chose to have our SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation with radiant barrier installed. SilverGlo will not only insulate their Cambridge, MD home preventing unwanted air and temperatures in through the attic, it will also reflect indoor temperatures back into the home keeping them more comfortable while using less energy!
These homeowners in Wyoming, DE were suffering with an uncomfortable home due to their vented crawl space. The insulation in their vented crawl space started to sag away and caused air to flow through it. With the constant air flow the crawl space formed condensation and high humidity. This can lead to mold growth, odors and wood rots.
Dr. Energy Saver has a simple solution to help these homeowners with their vented crawl space. Dr. Energy Saver will install a CleanSpace Encapsulation system on top of their dirt floor as well as install SilverGlo along the walls of the crawl space. This helps seal off any unwanted air from leaking into the crawl space. The results are low humidity, warmer floors upstairs and lower utility costs.
Finally, these homeowners can live comfortably in their own home while also saving money!
