Making a Home Warmer in Richmond, MA Making a Home Warmer in Richmond, MA

This homeowner in Richmond, MA called us out to their home to see what we could do to make their home warmer during the cold seasons. This home has old, inefficient fiberglass insulation in the attic. This was not keeping the home warm in the winter, the air they paid to heat was easily escaping. 

We removed all of the old, nasty fiberglass insulation. Then, we go in and air seal penetrations, and all top plates. Next, we build our catwalk for storage. We use our SilverGlo foam insulation board with a wooded walkway made of plywood on top. Now we are ready to blow our insulation. We blow our TruSoft Cellulose insulation into the attic, making sure not to get any on our catwalk.

Now, Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver, this home will be warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, and more energy efficient all year round!

This homeowner in Richmond, MA was having issues with moisture in their home. Our free energy evaluation revealed that one of the culprits was the old, inefficient door leading to the basement from the outside. These kinds of doors let in cold air during the winter, and humid air in the summer, which condenses upon reaching the cooler air of the basement and crawlspace and can cause mold.

The old door was removed and to better accommodate the new door, we installed new framing. Once that framing was up, we put in the new door equipped with weather stripping and a secure lock. 

Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this door is keeping the cold and moisture from outside away from this basement and keeping this home safe and comfortable.

Richmond'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 Richmond, MA
Reducing Humidity in a Home in Richmond, MA

This homeowner in Richmond, MA approached us at a home show hoping that we would be able to help her with water in her basement. When our Home Comfort Specialist came out to the home, he noted that the home had a water problem as well as a humidity problem. High humidity in a basement is caused by a number of important conditions. High humidity causes many problems in a home such as mold (which grows at Relative Humidities [RH] above 75%), rot (which happens above 90% RH) odors, airborne mold spores that aggravate allergies and asthma, increased pests and insects such as termites, and higher air conditioning and heating costs. Result - cold floors above, condensation, mold, rot, odors, drafty, uncomfortable home, higher fuel and electric bills.

 

We had the perfect solution for this customer. The SaniDry™ Sedona air system is a powerful but energy efficient dehumidification and air filtration system in one unit. Able to remove an incredible 100 pints of water per day and using only 5.9 amps of electricity, the SaniDry™ Sedona drains automatically to a sump or the outside with a condensate pump. It has a powerful 310 cfm blower to circulate the dry air completely around to dry building materials and contents. Mold doesn’t have a chance! An automatic control is easy - set it to 55% RH and forget it - the SaniDry™ Sedona does the rest! And there’s no buckets to empty! Results - Low Relative Humidity, mold stops growing, odors are reduced, basement is suitable for storage, lower air conditioning cost, upstairs is dryer.

Removing Insulation from a Crawl Space in Richmond, MA

This homeowner in Richmond, MA called us because she had a problem with her home's insulation, specifically in her crawl space. This insulation was inefficient and needed replacement, especially as it was very humid in this crawl space. The old thinking in crawl space construction was to vent the crawl space and create the thermal boundary (insulation layer) at the crawl space ceiling. It doesn’t work. Insulation is pulled by gravity away from the sub floor it was supposed to be insulating. The same cold air under the insulation flows into the space on top of it - rendering the insulation useless. As the insulation gets heavier with moisture content, it falls away from the sub floor even more and can even fall to the floor. Fiberglass batt insulation has paper facing and organic material in the resin used to set the fibers into a batt - both are mold food. Results - mold, smelly insulation that is not providing any insulation value and has sagged or even fallen.

 

Luckily, Fogarty's Home Services had the perfect solution for this homeowner. However, before we could do that, we first had to remove the fiberglass batts from the crawl space. Insulation has hostile fibers when it’s disturbed. The insulation is very bulky and takes up a tremendous amount of space in trucks and our dumpsters which must be emptied. But it’s necessary to have a healthy home in the end. Result - now the crawl space is ready to be fixed properly with other solutions. No more nasty fiberglass insulation!

Keeping Moisture Controlled in Richmond, MA

These homeowners in Richmond, MA had issues with moisture in their basement and were ready to tackle the problem head on. Basements and crawlspaces are often not considered conditioned space, and so not much effort is put into sealing them from outside. Warm, humid air comes in through vents and the rim joist, which is rarely sealed, and upon coming in contact with the cooler air of the basement, condenses. Once relative humidity reaches over 70%, mold is able to grow, creating a health risk for people and pets in the home.

We sealed off the rim joist with spray foam and sealed any venting to stop humid air from coming in. We also encapsulated the crawlspace to stop moisture from coming up through the ground. To be extra sure that this basement will stay dry, we installed our SaniDry Basement Air System. SaniDry is a high performance, energy efficient dehumidification system made especially for basements and crawlspaces, both spaces cooler than the inside of the home. There are no buckets to empty and the basement will stay safe and dry effortlessly!

Thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, these homeowners can be at ease knowing that their home is safe and comfortable!
