Closed cell spray foam is the most efficient way to insulate your home from the outside air. This creates a super insulated airtight cap on the top of your home to stop warm air from leaking out, and stop heat from the hot room from radiating during the summer.

This Dover, DE home had a weathered crawlspace entrance that allowed for air and moisture to enter into the home through the dirt crawlspace. This helped to reduce the amount of energy used to heat and cool the home. A CleanSpace crawlspace encapsulation would help to further eliminate dust, allergens, moisture, bugs, and microbial growth from entering into the home.

Even though this attic appears to be well insulated the homeowners still dealt with uncomfortable conditions in their home year round.  After meeting with one of our Certified Home Comfort Specialists, these homeowners decided to upgrade their attic with our SilverGlo rigid foam board insulation.  Infused with graphite in the foam that acts as tiny heat reflectors, the R-value of SilverGlo is 24% higher than standard EPS foam making the home that much more comfortable and efficient.  Just so the insulation doesn't have to do all of the work alone, SilverGlo has radiant barrier on both sides which reflect heat taking it's efficiency level even higher.

Job Stories From Kent County, DE
Attic Insulation and Air Sealing Saves Energy

The Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva representatives certainly made an impression on William V. at the Dover Mall Craft Show.  After attending, William contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva and Michael Tucker went out to determine what kind of energy changes would be best for his home. 

After the assessment it was clear to Michael that attic air sealing & insulation, garage air sealing & insulation, and a SmartKneewall Conversion System would be the best investments to make.  Adding insulation to your attic or garage is virtually worthless without air sealing first.  Sealing air leaks closes off your home’s exterior envelope and keeps your conditioned air in and the unwanted, unconditioned air out. 

Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva has the training and skills to access any place in your home to add more home insulation- even your hard to reach attic knee wall.  William V. can now enjoy a more comfortable and energy efficient home after these beneficial investments. 

Home Insulation Increases Comfort and Decreases Utility Bills

Amanda F. contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva because she was interested in window replacement and possibly gable vents in the attic.  She also described issues with her HVAC system and a bedroom that was uncomfortably cold in the winter and hot in the summer.  Luckily, a neighbor referred Amanda to the right place!

Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva’s energy expert, Michael Brittingham, inspected her home and determined that performing air sealing adding insulation to the whole house would have the most beneficial effects to overall comfort and interior temperature throughout the year. 

 Amanda no longer has to worry about rooms that are too cold in the winter or hot in the summer.  She can also take comfort in knowing that her utility bills will slowly decrease because the HVAC system will not have to work as hard to keep the house comfortable.  All in all, adding home insulation was the best choice for this individual problem, but may be the solution for your home too!

Delmarva Protects Dover, DE Home From High Electric Bills

Dover, DE homeowner Amanda F. decided that she wanted to install new windows in her home. Along with that she discovered that she was having problems with her HVAC system and one of her bedrooms was cold in the winter and hot in the summer.  Wanting answers, she began asking around her friends and family if they knew any contractors.  Amanda was soon referred to Delmarva by a neighbor who highly recommended them, so she contacted them that same day.

 

Shortly after contacting them Amanda was met by HVAC specialist Michael Brittingham of Delmarva to analyze her home and come up with a solution.  After examining the bedroom, Michael immediately felt there was a lack of insulation in that room which led to its dramatic temperature range.  Luckily for Amanda, Michael knew exactly how to change that.  In order to insulate the bedroom to its maximum potential, Michael recommended the installation of insulation in the attic of the bedroom and in the floor of the bedroom.  Along with this, Michael recommended air sealing the garage and the floors between levels, among other encapsulation and insulation steps.  

 

With the insulation process agreed upon, Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the installation process.  After the completion of the insulation upgrades, Amanda’s bedroom is now acceptably insulated and will no longer be a burden on her heating bills anymore!

CleanSpace Encapsulation Matting Cleans Up Dover, DE Crawl Space

During one summer, Dover, DE homeowners James and Frances H. found a musty smell circulating throughout their home.  After numerous home remedies, the couple was unable to find a permanent solution and knew they needed professional assistance.  After going through a number of mold remediation specialists, the couple came across Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva who they contacted to come for an estimate.

 

That same week, the couple was met by mold remediation specialist Michael Alicknavitch of Delmarva.  Michael immediately noticed a musty scent throughout the couple’s home, and asked to see the crawl space.  Michael quickly evaluated the crawl space and saw that it indeed had mold growth and moisture issues.  Once Michael explained the status of the crawl space to the couple, he began to explain possible remediation products.  In order to rid the space of moisture trouble, the root of all its problems, Michael recommended the CleanSpace drainage matting and encapsulation system.  This combination of products will drain any current water in the crawl space and prevent future moisture from penetrating.  To eliminate the musty smell, Michael recommended the installation of a SaniDry CX dehumidification system.  The SaniDry CX is designed specifically for crawl spaces.  With a coverage area of 2200 square feet, a removal rate of 109 pints of moisture a day, and the ability to operate at temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit, the SaniDry CX is an ideal solution for any problematic crawl space.  Michael also recommended a few other processes to complete the crawl space.

 

With the recommended products agreed upon, Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the installation and remediation process. With the products installed and working efficiently, the couple no longer has to worry about a lingering musty smell haunting their home.  The couple can now have friends and family over without being self conscious of the smell, all thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva.

Turtl Crawl Space Access Door Prevents Future Moisture Problems In Harrington Crawl Space

Even with waterproofing precautions made in a crawl space, there are other ways that moisture can find its way into one.  One of the ways is through a poorly installed or aging crawl space access door.  Homeowners Sandra and Richard N in Harrington, DE found that although their crawl space was properly waterproofed, water continued getting into it, which posed a problem for the couple. The couple decided they wanted professional assistance to determine why water was still making its way into their crawl space.  After looking for some time the couple came across Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva who they contacted that same day.

 

Delmarva sent out waterproofing specialist Raymond Bremmerman to meet the couple at their Harrington home.  After inspecting the area around the crawl space, both inside and out, Raymond determined that water was making its way into the crawl space through the access door, which showed signs of wear and tear.  To fix their problem, Raymond recommended the installation of The Turtl crawl space access system.  The Turtl is an alternative to a traditional crawl space door. Traditional products that are made of steel or wood tend to rust or rot over time respectively.  The Turtl is an ideal solution to surpass these problems and ensures an airtight seal, preventing moisture or pests from affecting the crawl space.  The Turtl also comes with an elevation ring for foundations that are slightly higher than what is suitable for the Turtl.  Finally the Turtl comes in three colors: beige, green and brown to match the surrounding area of your crawl space.  

 

Raymond called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to replace the old crawl space door with the newly purchased Turtl crawl space access system.  With the installation of the Turtl comes a sense of newly received security for the couple. They will no longer have water coming into their crawl space and its all thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva!

Poor Insulation Effects Harrington, DE Home: Open Cell Spray Foam Saves It!

Joe S. found that his attic’s insulation was deteriorating and decided that he wanted spray foam to be installed in his attic after hearing only good things about the insulation.  Joe went online to search for companies that would apply the spray foam, and he soon came across Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva who he contacted that same day.

 

Delmarva sent out representative David Lawson to meet Joe at his Harrington, DE house and inspect his attic.  David saw that indeed Joe’s insulation was failing and decided that spray foam was the best way to go.  David recommended to Joe the installation of a certain type of spray foam known as Open Cell spray foam.  This type of insulation is top of the line and doubles as an effective air sealant to reduce energy loss and improve indoor air quality.  It will also reduce one’s electric bills which is always good thing.  With the product agreed upon, David called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the installation process.

 

A properly insulated home can make a dramatic difference to a home and a homeowner’s lifestyle.  With the installation of new insulation, Joe has found the quality of his home has improved dramatically.  Thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva, his home will be energy efficient for years to come.

 

TruSoft Insulation Lowers Electric Bill of Felton, DE Homeowner

Homeowner Martin L. found himself having unusually large electric bills. Thinking that the problem stemmed from poor insulation of some sorts in his crawl space, Martin wanted a professional evaluation.  Martin decided to contact the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva after seeing their products at a Delaware state fair.

 

Delmarva sent representative Michael Alicknavitch to meet Martin at his Felton, DE home.  Once Michael got there Martin explained the problems he was experiencing. Michael decided to evaluate the home for any possible leaks in the walls or ducts. What Michael found was just that; instead of the crawl space being poorly insulated, Michael found Martin’s attic to be lacking in insulation.  Luckily for Martin, Michael had the perfect solution for his problem.  Michael recommended that Martin’s attic be reinsulated and air sealed for maximum energy efficiency.  He proposed that the attic be reinsulated with TruSoft blown in cellulose insulation.  

 

Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to properly insulate the home. With his home more efficient than ever, Martin can experience a sense of relaxation knowing that professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva have installed a long lasting solution in his home.  

Mold Dilemma Proves Troublesome for Felton, DE Crawl Space

Felton, DE Homeowners Kim and Fred noticed one day that their home had a slight musty smell.  Wanting to get rid of this smell permanently, the couple began looking for professionals to extinguish their problem. After asking around for a recommendation for a company, the couple was referred to Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva who they contacted shortly after.

 

Soon after contacting Delmarva, the couple was met by crawl space remediation specialist Raymond Bremmerman at their Felton, DE home. After explaining their situation to Raymond, Raymond immediately went to the crawl space to evaluate it.  After a quick inspection, Raymond noticed that moisture was accumulating in the crawl space.  This was leading to mold growth and the deterioration of the installed insulation.  To solve these problems Raymond recommended the installation of CleanSpace drainage matting, a SaniDry CX, SmartSump sump pump, and Everlast Crawl Space Door, among other products.  The CleanSpace drainage matting coupled with the SmartSump will redirect any water in the crawl space to the pump and then safely dispose of it far away from the foundation.  Unlike traditional crawl space access doors that warp, rot, crack, and shrink over time, an Everlast crawl space access door will do none of these and is made of ½ inch airtight plastic to ensure no moisture finds it way into the crawl space.  To eliminate the mold growth and musty smell, Michael recommended the installation of a SaniDry CX dehumidification system.  Once the products had been agreed upon, Raymond called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to install the necessary products.  

 

With the products installed and taking effect, Kim and Fred now have a home that no longer smells like must and a crawl space that is efficiently waterproofed for the oncoming years, all thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva!

CleanSpace and SilverGlo Products Save Camden Wyoming Crawl Space

A well taken care of crawl space can take a house a long way in terms of value, efficiency and repair costs; yet the consequences of having a poorly maintained crawl space are dire.  When Camden Wyoming, DE homeowners Ray and Jeanne M. wanted an annual evaluation of their home they decided to contact the professionals at DES Delmarva, having heard good things about them from a family friend.

Shortly after, the Camden Wyoming couple was met by Delmarva representative Raymond Bremmerman at their home.  The couple explained what they wanted evaluated and Raymond did just that.  Upon closer inspection, Raymond realized that Ray and Jeanne’s crawl space was in deep trouble.  With a lot of humidity and water troubling their crawl space, the couple thought they would need a miracle to fix their basement.  Luckily for them, Raymond had the ideal solution.  To drain the water, Raymond recommended the installation of CleanSpace drainage matting which doubles as a solution and a preventative measure.  Coupled with this, Raymond suggested that the couple have  2” SilverGlo Rigid Foam with a Radiant Barrier installed.  This product keeps the crawl space well insulated while keeping the moisture out.

With the recommended products agreed upon, Raymond called in Delmarva’s very own Production Team One to install the products.  Thanks to the professionals at DES Delmarva, the couple’s crawl space is now something to be proud of and will continue its efficiency in the ongoing years.

Delmarva Solves Poor Attic Insulation Problem in Camden Wyoming, DE

Robyn and David B. of Camden Wyoming found one day that their attic was poorly insulated and as a result of that was costing them money.  Desperate for answers, the couple began asking around for recommendations on a company.  They were referred to DES Delmarva by a coworker who just had their attic insulated.  Robyn and David contacted them that day.

The couple was met by DES representative Michael Alicknavitch at their Camden Wyoming home.  After introductions, Robyn and David showed Michael the attic.  After inspecting the attic, Michael agreed that the attic was poorly insulated and needed to be treated immediately.  Michael explained to the couple that the best course of action would be to insulate their attic with TruSoft blown-in insulation, which is a very effective type of attic insulation.  In conjunction with the insulation, the attic was sealed to keep all the heat in and keep it from escaping to the outside.

Both Robyn and David agreed that these suggestions were the best course of action and had Michael call in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the insulation process.  Now that their attic is properly insulated, the couple should no longer be losing money and should be enjoying their properly insulated home for years to come!

Rotting Wood Becomes Problematic for Dover, DE Homeowners

A healthy crawl space leads to a happy owner.  When Dover homeowners Albert and Vee N. discovered a musty smell throughout their home, they decided it was time for a professional evaluation.  The couple immediately went online to search for contractors in the surrounding area, and they came across DES Delmarva.  Impressed with their credentials they decided to call them to come out.

The following week, the couple was met by waterproofing specialist Raymond Bremmerman at their Dover, DE home.  Raymond immediately surveyed the crawl space and what he found was massive amounts of moisture.  This moisture not only creates a musty smell, but over time it rots the wood supporting the home leading to massive structural problems.  Although the couple thought all was lost, Raymond reassured them that he had an ideal solution.  Raymond suggested the installation of CleanSpace Light Crawl Space Vapor Barrier.  This barrier is designed to be installed along the crawl space floor creating a moisture proof separation between the ground and the crawl space.  In conjunction with this, Raymond recommended a condensation pump, the SaniDry CX combo.  The SaniDry CX is a dehumidification system used to eliminate moisture and its aftermath such as the musty smell.  With the products and process proposed, Albert and Vee decided that this would be the best course of action and decided to go along with the installation process.

Production Team One was called in to complete the installation process and after a quick two day installation, the crawl space was better than ever and ready for action.  Thanks to the professionals at DES Delmarva, no crawl space is too damaged to fix.
