Homeowners in Felton, Delaware noticed water seeping in through their access crawlspace door into the crawl area.
This could cause humidity levels to rise resulting in condensation all over the crawlspace. Also during the winter time, cold air leaks will potentially become a problem for the homeowners causing cold floors above and cooling heating ducts. Higher fuel and electric bills will stem from these problems.
Dr. Energy Saver then was called out to find the source of how water entered the crawlspace. We found water stains on the liner which means the crawlspace had standing water previously but evaporated with the heat levels inside of there. The entrance door to lacked the proper sealing resulting in water seeping through and coming into the crawlspace.
Seeing those penetrations, Dr. Energy Saver installed our Turtl Crawl Space Access System. This is an airtight door and a sealed access well in one durable unit. This airtight design is a watertight and durable crawl space access that keeps your crawlspace clean and healthy.
This Felton, DE homeowner knew he needed to have his nasty crawlspace looked at by a professional. Lawson Home Services prepared the crawlspace for proper mold treatment by removing moldy, damaged isulation from the crawl space ceiling and applying a mold treatment. A CleanSpace Encapsulation System with Drainage Matting was installed along with a SaniDry Sedona Crawl Space Air System and a SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System to keep the crawlspace dry at all times!
This homeowner in Townsend, DE., was suffering from cold rooms in the winter, warm rooms in the summer and poor air quality within the house.
The cause of this homeowner's troubles was air leakage in their attic. Due to poorly installed insulation and air sealing, this allows air from within the house to leak into the attic. Once the air is inside the attic it is lost causing high electric/fuel bills and making it harder to heat or cool their home.
Dr. Energy Saver offers an easy solition to their problems. By air sealing their attic and reinstalling insulation, no air can leak in or out of the attic. Now the homeowners can have the results they wanted while also saving money in the process!
We have encapsulated a crawl space in Harrington, DE. We installed a CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System with perimeter drainage and drainage matting. It has a SmartSump with a remote alarm. The insulation was removed from the floor and we installed 2" foam board on the perimeter walls along with R-21 closed-cell foam in the rim joist. We also installed a Turtl Crawl Space Access System.
The floor was air sealed along with duct sealing to bring the total duct leakage under the current 2009 iecc code for new construction. The house leakage is now below average.
The flex duct in this new Kent County home didn't stay clean very long after construction. Dust from construction and the first couple years of residence settled in quickly. After the duct work was sealed to prevent outside air from entering, the Dr. Energy Saver crew cleaned the supply and return lines along with the indoor and outdoor units. This Harrington homeowner now has clean ducts and can breath easier.
