When a stairwell has a sloped ceiling forming a big triangular space that is open to the attic, it creates a heat loss in the winter and a heat gain in the summer inside of your home. 

Dr. Energy Saver went into this home located in Wilmington, Delaware where the customers had concerns about the amount of money spewing out into their fuel and electric bills. Also making the inside conditions of the home very uncomfortable. As our In Home Comfort Specialist inspect the attic, he found the open area sloped ceiling that was open to the attic. That area had the most impact on the cost home ownership. 

Our production team goes in immediately attacks the issue at hand which is to install our Airtight Structural Cover over the open cavity inside of the attic. After this is installed, we can now blow over the structure and insulate the whole attic properly making this home more comfortable year around and also lowering their fuel and electric bills.

Spray foam, Attic, Crawl Space, & Blow in Insulation

Air Duct Cleaning

The air that blows throughout your house runs through a series of air ducts that most people forget about until they become a problem. If not cleaned the ducts become dirty and clogged resulting in air vents blowing less air through them and the air that is blown into your home is full of dust and debris. This is particularly harmful if certain members of your family suffer from allergies or asthma.

Cleaning out these air ducts is a needed chore that probably hasn’t been done in your home in years. Dr. Energy Saver is your air duct cleaning expert in Wilmington so make sure to bring this up during your phone call to us.

If you notice buckling floors, musty odors, heightened allergies or asthma symptoms, or cracks in the drywall it may be your crawl space is need of repair. But don’t dismay our Wilmington team will repair your crawl space, fixing any issues.

After the work is finished along with correcting any damage and proofing the crawl space for further damage you may end up with the side benefit o saving up to 20% in heating an cooling costs with the improvements to the crawl space. Call us now to get a free quote for the work!

Job Stories From Wilmington, DE
Fixing Leaky Duct Work in Wilmington, Delaware

When checking the duct work in homes, it is proven that all duct work leaks. Stopping these leaks typically will have a lasting impact on how well you can control your heating and cooling inside of your home. But how to stop duct leakage is an on-going issue with homeowners.

Here in Wilmington, Delaware homeowners were experiencing just those conditions. With gaps inside of the duct work, not only did this cause their HVAC system to turn on more than it should causing higher electric bills, the leaks in the duct work caused debris, air pollutants, and other air quality issues to be blown inside of the home. Also, the house leaked so bad that they could not heat or cool one side of the home! Imagine living in a home where one side is too uncomfortable to even spend time in. 

Dr. Energy Saver was called to help solve the problem the homeowners were experiencing. We recommended Aeroseal which is a process that seals cracks and holes in new and existing air duct systems. Seeing the added benefits of how aerosealing your duct work could benefit you in savings off your fuel and electric bills, the homeowners agreed to the work. 

We tested their duct work before sealing up the holes and leaks. The home had 722.5 CFM(Cubic Feet per Minute) of leakage. That is equivalent to a 136.5 square inch hole which is about 433.5 refrigerators full of air loss every hour! After aerosealing their duct work, we reduced the leakage down to 25.5 CFM of leakage which is equivalent to a 4.8 square inch hole. Overall, Dr. Energy sealed up 95.5% of the duct leakage improving the overall homes comfort and health!

Reduce Odors in Wilmington, Delaware

When homes encounter high humidity inside of their basement, it usually leads to odd or musty odors seeping through the floor into your living space making your home stay very uncomfortable. Homeowners in Wilmington, Delaware were suffering from that problem. 

With humidity levels inside of the basement higher than what was expected, condensation began to appear causing those odd odors. After calling out Dr. Energy Saver who diagnosed the issues they were having inside of the basement, the production got to work. 

The first matter at hand involved removing the previous damp and foul smelling insulation inside of the basement. We then installed our high performance energy efficient dehumidification system inside of the basement to control the relative humidity levels inside. This prevents condensation from happening and also prevents the potential of microbial growth. 

After the work was completed, the homeowners noticed the odor was no longer. Overrall, another happy and satisfied Dr. Energy Saver customer!

Wilmington Homeowner Saves Crawl Space with CleanSpace Encapsulation Matting

Insulation trouble is a very annoying and possibly costly problem.  When Wilmington homeowner John M. and his wife noticed that one of their rooms was cold in the winter and hot in the summer, they decided to start looking around for a contractor. The couple found themselves at a local home show where they saw a vendor for Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva. John filled out a form requesting a free estimate.

 

Shortly after filling out the form, the couple was contacted by Delmarva who wanted to send out a representative to the couple’s home.  The couple was soon met by Delmarva representative Michael Alicknavitch to inspect their home.  John explained that not only did the specific room need improvement, but there was also possible work in the crawl space and ducts.  After inspecting the home, Michael agreed that John was right and began to explain products that would fix the couples problems.  In the crawl space, Michael noticed a build up of outside moisture, and for this he recommended the CleanSpace encapsulation system coupled with a CleanSpace drainage matting.  The CleanSpace encapsulation system is installed along the floor and walls of a crawl space and is designed to prevent outside moisture from penetrating into the confines of the crawl space.  The drainage matting is designed to drain all moisture within the crawl space to a sump pump or other installed drainage system.  Throughout the rest of the house, Michael recommended that the ducts be sealed, and the specified room be insulated with closed cell spray foam insulation.  This type of insulation is an “all in one” insulation and is ideal for any home, even with the most extreme problems.

 

After going through what exactly was going to be installed and how it was going to be done, Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the process.  John finds that he and his wife are no longer having insulation problems anymore.  Their home feels better than ever and it’s all thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva!

Wilmington, DE Homeowner Insulates Home with SuperKneeWall Insulation

Wilmington, DE homeowner Tom H. found himself in a predicament when he felt constant drafts coming through his home, especially during the winter months.  After trying to replace the windows, the siding, and parts of the roof to stop the drafts, Tom decided he wanted a professional to come in and find a way to make his home more comfortable. Tom immediately went online to search for contractors in his area, and he was soon redirected to Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva whom he contacted.

 

Soon after being contacted, Delmarva sent out insulation specialist Michael Alicknavitch to talk with Tom and evaluate his home.  After greeting one another, Tom began to explain the problem he was facing to Michael and he showed him specific areas in the home where he felt a draft coming through.  Michael analyzed the specific areas and then asked to inspect the crawl space.  In the crawl space, Michael found that the insulation installed had deteriorated due to excess moisture that had accumulated in the crawl space over time.  After taking a look at a few other sections of the home, Michael began to explain solutions to Tom’s problem.  Michael recommended that specified areas of the home be insulated with SuperKneeWall insulation and other areas of the main floors be insulated and air sealed to prevent future drafts.  For the crawl space, Michael knew that the excess moisture had to be eliminated, so he proposed the installation of a CleanSpace encapsulation system. This system is installed along the walls and floor of the crawl space and prevents moisture from penetrating its surface and getting into the confines of the crawl space.  Finally, Michael recommended installing new insulation in the crawl space and air sealing it as well.  

 

Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the installation process.  Drafts are no longer a problem in this Wilmington home, thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva. Tom is now finally comfortable in his home and can enjoy it to its fullest potential with friends and family for years to come!

Improving Home Comfort with Crawl Space Encapsulation & More

Over the years, Tom H. has replaced windows, siding, and the roof of his home.  He has also done other renovation work, but still the house is uncomfortable and drafty during the cold winter months.   Finally it was time to find a permanent solution for this undesirable situation. 

Tom H. searched online and found Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva- his local energy contractor.  Michael Alicknavitch is an energy specialist who checked out Tom’s home and determined that adding SuperAttic, spray foam insulation to the basement/crawl space, the SuperKnee Wall insulation and air sealing treatment, and the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system with SilverGlo would definitely solve his home comfort problems.

SuperAttic and SilverGlo are similar because they are both rigid foam insulation panels that fully seal and insulate the space they are in.  Each one is perfect for their application because it is not messy and will sufficiently and effectively slow the flow of heat.  Now Tom H. and his family can enjoy a comfortable, warm, and cozy home throughout the winter and not worry about drafts and heat easily escaping.  

Spray Foam and Cellulose Insulation

Debbie W. contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva for an estimate to install spray foam insulation to the slab of her sun house.  Energy expert Michael Alicknavitch went out to determine if spray foam was the right type of insulation for the job, and if so how much would be needed to increase energy efficiency and slow heat flow.

He concluded that both spray foam insulation and cellulose insulation should be installed under and above the sunroom.  Additionally, Debbie W. decided to have her whole home air sealed.  This air sealing package addresses every way that air could be leaking in or out of your home from large opening like doors and windows to small cracks that are barely noticeable. 

Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva is your local air sealing, spray foam, and cellulose insulation contractor.  We are trained and certified in all the latest energy saving technologies and techniques to help homeowners just like you!
