This homeowner called us because the attic insulation in his home was pretty nasty and ineffective. Over many years it  collected dirt, dust, pollen, bugs, and all kinds of undesirable things. Old insulation like this cannot be moved aside for a proper air sealing job that must be done prior to adding enough blown cellulose insulation to today’s standards.

Fogarty's Home Services conducted the unpleasant task of removing the damaged, soiled insulation in his attic.  Loose fill insulation was vacuumed with a giant vacuum located outside with giant filter bags and a very long, fat hose.

Result - Now this attic is clean! It’s ready for proper air sealing and installation of clean, new, fresh cellulose insulation or one of our other Dr. Energy Saver strategies to make your home comfortable and energy efficient.

This home owner in Longmeadow, MA called us out to her home because of the ice damming problem that she had last year. This was occurring because the heat that she was paying for escaped into the attic and warmed up the roof deck. Now that the roof deck is warm. the snow starts melt and run down the roof until it hits the gutter line and refreezes. This is how ice dams are created.

To stop this from happening we have to properly air seal and insulate the attic space. To do this first we remove all the old fiberglass insulation. Then we vacuum out the attic and begin to airseal every penetration so no air can escape into the attic. Then we blow our Trusoft cellulose insulation to and R-value of R-60.

Now that Dr Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions has come and helped this home, this home owner will not have to worry about ice damming ever again!

This homeowner in Longmeadow, MA was experiencing a lot of air leakage in their attic. This was creating cold drafty rooms as well as heat loss in the winter. The heat loss created an increase in their energy bills attempting to heat the home. Due to this, customers were uncomfortable in their home year round. By air sealing all of the gaps with our spray foam insulation and blowing in Dr. Energy Savers TruSoft cellulose insulation, it created a more comfortable, healthy environment for the entire home and family. Our TruSoft cellulose insulation is treated with natural borate compounds. By doing this we have created a higher R-value in the space as well as decreasing the energy costs.

Longmeadow'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 Longmeadow, MA
Insulating Walls with ProWool Insulation in Longmeadow, MA

This homeowner in Longmeadow, MA called us while doing a whole-home renovation. When our Home Comfort Specialist arrived, the homeowner and him collaborated on what he wanted the insulation in his home to look like. That included re-insulating all of the walls of his home. There would be a huge problem without insulation. Heat flows from more (inside) to less (outside in winter) right through the walls, and the opposite in summer. Nearly all walls leak air, insulated or not, causing drafts. The cold wall surface cools interior air which then sinks and travels across the floor and up the warmer interior wall, and across the ceiling back to the exterior wall. This is called a “convective loop” and makes rooms feel even draftier. Result - cold, drafty rooms, uncomfortable home, heating and cooling systems run much more and need more service, difficult to keep house at comfortable temperature, higher fuel and electric bills, dry home in winter, more dust/pollen, more humidity in the house in summer when air conditioned.

 

The team proposed the perfect solution for this customer, and he loved it. We were able to dense pack the walls with ProWool™ insulation. The siding was removed temporarily and 29/16” holes were drilled through the wall sheathing. A fill tube was inserted up (and down) into wall cavities to not only fill, but dense pack the wall cavities. Dense packing is a technique that packs the insulation in very tightly - so tightly that all irregular shaped cavities and crevices in the wall cavities are filled, and air will not penetrate the dense packed ProWool™. It’s remarkable, and something that can’t be achieved with fiberglass - not even close! Dense packed ProWool™ stops air flow through the wall and insulates. ProWool™ Rockwool is fireproof, mold and pest resistant. Holes were plugged and siding was put back. Result - A less drafty, warmer, quieter, more comfortable house, less dust/pollen, house not so dry in winter, lower fuel/electric bills, heating system runs less - less maintenance.

Reducing Humidity with the SaniDry™ Basement Air System in Longmeadow, MA

Warm air has the capacity to hold much more water than cool air. Basements are cool because they are below ground. Mold grows at Relative Humidity of 70% or higher at the surface. When you combine these 3 facts, it’s a recipe for problems in the summer when warm outside air enters a basement, and is cooled without taking any water out of it. The Relative Humidity goes way up, and condensation forms on cold floors, walls, air conditioning ducts, water pipes and storage tanks. Mold grows on organic materials and produces spores and odors. This air travels up and affects the living space upstairs, and air conditioning has to work harder to remove humidity.  Finished basements develop a smell and are ruined.

 

The SaniDry™ system is a high performance, energy efficient dehumidification system made for cooler temperatures found in basements, with particulate filtration, in a single unit. It’s easy to dehumidify hot air - but basements are cool.  The SaniDry™ is designed specifically for basement environments. It features a heat exchange core, and much larger cold coil surface area inside than a household dehumidifier. A large blower moves 300 cfm of air into the machine to dry, and circulates the dry air throughout your basement to dry building materials and contents, and makes that damp smell go away. A two stage high efficiency filtration system takes particles out of the air down to an incredible 2 microns in size - which includes all mold spores. Digital controls are easy to use, set it to the desired Relative Humidity (55%) and the machine does the rest and there are no buckets to empty.  The results are a dry basement, smells go away, mold stops growing, basement is much more comfortable, less humidity upstairs, and the house is easier to cool.

Removing Ineffective Attic Insulation in Longmeadow, MA

PROBLEM: Attic insulation in your home can get pretty nasty. Over many years it sits there collecting dirt, dust, pollen, bugs, rodent feces (from mice, squirrels, bats, etc.), bird droppings and nests and all kinds of undesirable things. Old insulation like this cannot be moved aside for a proper air sealing job that must be done prior to adding enough blown cellulose insulation to today’s standards. We remove it all and start fresh!

 

SOLUTION: Fogarty's Home Services  will conduct the unpleasant task of removing the damaged, soiled insulation in your attic. Batt insulation is bagged and then the attic is vacuumed to remove pieces, parts and dust. Loose fill insulation is vacuumed with a giant vacuum located outside with giant filter bags and a very long, fat hose.

 

Result - Now your attic is clean! It’s ready for proper air sealing and installation of clean, new, fresh cellulose insulation or one of our other Dr. Energy Saver strategies to make your home comfortable and energy efficient.

Install Foamax™ Insulation Board to Insulate Basement Walls in Longmeadow, MA

Your poured concrete basement walls are buried in the cool earth and are perpetually cold - about 17°F cooler than we like the interior of our homes to be. In the winter, the part of the foundation that sticks up above the ground is much colder than that. Heat moves from more to less. The dense concrete has a lot of mass and heat from our basement constantly flows into and through the wall by conduction. You can never heat them up. If you have a furnace, boiler, or water heater in the basement, the heat that comes off this equipment is wasted - lost into the cold concrete, instead of warming the basement and floors above it. In the summer, warm humid air from outside hits your cold basement walls and condensation forms, supporting mold. Results - cold basement, cold floors above the basement, higher fuel bills, more difficult to heat the house. Foam insulation board is installed on your basement walls with Dr. Energy Saver's proprietary Foam-site fasteners. But not just any foam - Polyisocyanurate foam has the flame retardant properties to satisfy building codes to leave it exposed in a basement - unlike expanded or extruded polystyrene foam (EPS, XPS). In addition, the "polyiso" board has a foil facing to reflect heat so the insulation isn't doing all the work by itself. Results - warmer, more comfortable basement, warmer floors above basement, less condensation in the summertime, lower fuel bills, house is easier to heat.
