This homeowner in Blanford, MA called us to his home to see what we could do about his water problem in his basement. One of the issues he had was that he had no sump pump!

To help this home owner we installed our Triple Safe Sump Pump. First thing we have to do is jack hammer away the concrete so we can create a hole for the pump to sit in. Then we lay some stone down in the hole and put the pump housing in and make sure its level with the rest of the basement. Once that is done we fill the hole with more stone so we can concrete the floor. Once this is all done we run the PVC pipe out of the basement, through the rim joist and away from the house. 

Now that Dr Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions came and took care of this problem, this homeowner will not have to worry about water in his basement anymore!

This home owner in Blandford, MA called to see if we could help make a room more comfortable throughout the year. He wanted to focus on an old dirt crawlspace. The room above this crawlspace was notoriously really cold in the winter and super hot and humid in the summer.

To fix the problem, we had to encapsulate the crawl space. We removed all the old fiberglass insulation and added our 2" Silverglow foam board to the side walls. We laid down our dimple drainage mat and over-laid the Terr-block insulation foam board for additional support. We installed our Cleanspace 20 mil thick vapor barrier on the floors and walls. Our last step was to spray foam the rim joist so that the entire area is secured from the outside elements. 

Now that Dr Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions completed this project, this homeowner's room will stay more comfortable year round!

This home owner in Blandford, MA called us to his home to see if we could help reduce the amount of humidity that was in his basement. When our building science specialist got to the home he knew exactly what to do.

To fix the problem that was occurring we had to insulate the basement walls. A lot of cold from the outside was conducting into the basement through the walls. When this cold air hit the warm air in the house it created humidity. So, we use our Foamax Insulation panels on the walls. This treatment will help stop any outside elements from coming into the basement and affecting this space.

Now that Dr Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions came to this home and did this treatment, this home owner will not have to worry about humidity in his basement ever again!

Blandford's Leading Spray Foam Insulation Contractor

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Spray foam insulation is also waterproof, unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or bypassed. Once cured, spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Include:

  • Spray foam works in all areas of the home
  • Has a greater R-value
  • Acts as an air sealant
  • Is waterproof
  • Leaves no gaps

Job Stories From Blandford, MA
Mold in Attic in Blandford, MA

A customer in Blandford, MA called us with some problems recurring in his attic in the wintertime.  He had significant ice damming every year and a severe problem with mold in the attic.  Leo contacted Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions to come and investigate the problem.

During the questionnaire process, Leo mentioned that he was running a dehumidifier in the winter in his attic. Further discussion brought up the fact that he was having a moisture problem in the attic, which was why he was using the dehumidifier.  Additionally, the temperatures in his home were very inconsistent throughout the year, especially in the winter.  After completing the questionnaire and building a strong accomplish list to address the problems in his home, we proceeded to do a thorough inspection.

During the inspection process in the attic, our Building Science Expert noticed and identified a significant amount of mold accumulating on the rafters and the underside of the roof deck.  Immediately, the Building Science Expert brought the homeowner into the attic to help him understand what was going on in his home.  Additionally, there was a minimal amount of fiberglass insulation in the gable vents and the rafter bays were blocked.  

The problem was there was no airflow allowing the roof deck to breathe which was causing a condensation problem due to warm air leaving the home.  This warm air, combined with the cold air in the attic, caused condensation which increased the amount of relative humidity causing mold spores to colonize.  Additionally, no air sealing of any of the top plates, electrical penetrations, plumbing penetrations, or HVAC penetrations was sealed.  This allowed all the conditioned air to leave and new unconditioned air to come in from the bottom of the house.  This is called Stack Effect.  

Our resolution to this problem was a combination of a number of our treatments starting with removing all of the fiberglass insulation, including the gable vents, from the attic.  We then used our Mold Neutralizer killing the mold immediately on contact.  Then we air-sealed all the penetrations and tops of the walls with our 1-Part Expandable Polyeuranem Foam and encapsulated all of the ductwork where a significant amount of air was leaking.  We used our 2-Part Expandable Spray Foam to seal the ducts.  We properly ventilated the rafter bays with baffling devices.  Finally, we blew our TruSoft Cellulose insulation to a Department of Energy recommendation of R-60, which is about 18 to 20 inches.  An insulated catwalk was installed to allow all mechanical devices to be accessible.  

In the basement, where the unconditioned air was entering the bottom of the house, we air sealed the rim joist with our 2-Part Expandable Spray Foam.  The rim joist is the band joist that runs around the perimeter of the foundation.  We also installed an insulated basement door and brand new basement insert windows.

Finally, we dense packed the exterior walls from the outside.  This completed the entire envelope of the home separating the conditioned spaces from the unconditioned spaces in this beautiful ranch home in Blandford, MA.  Not only did we reduce the cost of heating and cooling this home, but we also made this home comfortable year-round.  To date, this homeowner has not had to run a dehumidifier in the attic in the winter and there is no sign of mold.
