This homeowner called us out to their home to upgrade their attic insulation. This home was built in 1942, and needed an update! We also noticed some mold in the attic, which could be dangerous! We removed all of the old, nasty insulation and debris from the attic, properly bag it up, and dispose of it. Now we are able to spray our Mold-X Mold Killer in the attic on any and all areas, nooks, and crannies. This will get rid of the mold and make sure new mold spores do not start growing. Now we are able to air seal, and insulate!

We first seal up all top and end plates with foam to make sure there is no air able to escape, and so that the insulation is not trying to work all on its own. Insulation needs to be paired with proper air sealing, otherwise you are burring air leaks with just insulation! Next, we blow in our TruSoft Cellulose insulation. This fills in all cracks, gaps, and voids where air could escape through!

Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this home has updated insulation, and is more energy efficient!

This homeowner in Groton, CT called us with issues with her crawl space being very humid and moist. When our Home Comfort Specialist arrived, he noted that one of her issues was that she had a bulkhead door, but not an inner door to separate the exterior and interior of the home. This presents a few problems for the home: during the summer, warm and humid air comes into the home. In the winter, cold air leaks in, causing cold floors. This causes a lot of mold as well as higher energy bills. 

 

Fogarty's was able to help this customer with this issue. We were able to install an Everlast™ crawl space door in the home. The Everlast™ crawl space door is 1/2" thick polyethylene, which is solid and durable. It is a custom sized door with thick weather stripping and anchors into the foundation. It will never rust, rot, or need paint. It is also a barrier between the volatile outside air and the inside of the crawlspace. It is an airtight access door that will last forever with less air leakage and condensation. This customer was so excited to not have any more mold or sagging floors!

Groton'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 Groton, CT
Eliminating a Mold Problem in Groton, CT

This homeowner in Groton, CT called us when she found out that her insulation was falling out of her crawl space ceiling. She also had sagging floors in parts of the home that were sagging into the crawlspace. When our Home Comfort Specialist came out to the home, he noticed an extreme moisture problem that was causing both of these issues -- and was also causing a lot of mold. High relative humidity or high amounts of moisture in a crawl space will cause mold to grow on the surfaces of framing lumber, sub floors, insulation, and everywhere. Spores are the airborne seeds of mold, which are produced when the mold is growing and active. These spores float on airstreams up from the crawl space into the living space, and people with sensitivities can react to them. When we fix a crawl space properly, the crawl space will dry out enough so mold will not continue to grow. But what can be done to treat and eliminate the mold that’s already there?

 

Luckily, Fogarty's Home Services has the answer to that problem. For moldy surfaces, we utilize our Mold-X2 cleaner and Mold-X2 botanical treatment. Mold-X2 Cleaner effectively eliminates mold and mildew stains on contact. It is non-abrasive and non-flammable, and was sprayed on the effected areas. Once the Mold-X2 Cleaner was applied, the mold disappeared instantly, leaving wood surface looking nearly new. Mold-X2 Botanical, a plant-based disinfectant with a pleasant, temporary scent, was sprayed on the surfaces. Mold-X2 Botanical prevents mold from growing back. Now, the crawl space is ready for other solutions. Results – The mold is eliminated, with no odors or potential for wood rot. The crawl space is now ready for a permanent repair to keep humidity low.

Making a Home Efficient in Groton, CT

This homeowner in Groton, CT called us out to their home to help them update the insulation in their home. We sent out our Building Science Specialist to conduct our Free Home Energy Evaluation. They discovered there was very old, inefficient insulation in their attic and crawlspace! They also discovered mold! Mold can be very dangerous. It is harmful to have in your home, especially for pets, young children, and older people.

Since attics are vented, we should think of them thermally as outside in the winter. In the summer, because of the suns radiant heat, attics reach a much higher temperature in their attic, higher than 130º ! Knowing this, we need to keep a boundary from the attic to our living space, so that air that you pay to heat and cool does not travel up into the attic, and get lost! To reduce overall air leakage, the attic is the main priority because warm air will rise to the top of the home and fine any and all air holes to leak out of. This resulted in overall drafty rooms, and high heating/cooling bills. 

We knew the right treatments to help this homeowner become efficient in their homes!

First, we attacked the attic. We spray our Mold-X Mold Killer in the attic on any and all areas, nooks, and crannies. This will get rid of the mold and make sure new mold spores do not start growing. Now we are able to air seal, and insulate!

We first seal up all top and end plates with foam to make sure there is no air able to escape, and so that the insulation is not trying to work all on its own. Insulation needs to be paired with proper air sealing, otherwise you are burring air leaks with just insulation! Next, we blow in our TruSoft Cellulose insulation. This fills in all cracks, gaps, and voids where air could escape through!

Now we can get to the crawlspace! We started off by clearing out this old insulation. We install our SilverGlo graphite infused foam board onto the walls to insulate the crawlspace to keep heat in during the winter. We then got to work on the dirt floor of the crawlspace. We laid down our dimpled drainage to create an airspace and thermal break. Then we put down our TerraBlock floor insulation, and finalize our sealing off the crawlspace with our vapor barrier liner to keep moisture from getting into the crawlspace and creating any mold issues. Finally, we seal off the rim joist, otherwise know as the perimeter of the floor framing of the house, to stop cold air from creeping in with spray foam insulation.

Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solution, this home is now healthier, more comfortable, and energy efficient!
