This homeowner experienced huge amounts of air leakage which caused heat loss in the winter and conditioned air in the summer, driving up energy costs for heating and cooling the home. Our team installed the Super Knee Wall system, which uses SilverGlo rigid foam insulation. These panels create a continuous air and insulation barrier beneath the roof of the home. With the Super Knee Wall insulation installed, the homeowner was able to experience a significant change in their energy consumption as well as their energy costs.

Insulating a rim joist is one of the most important things you can do to start making your home more efficient. It can help lower your energy bills and make the first floor of your home more comfortable. To do this, we start by first removing the old nasty insulation from the bay spaces in the basement. Once that is done we spray the rim joist with our 2-part spray foam insulation in every bay space. We cover the entire space and the sill plate so no air from outside can be sucked inside from the basement. After this we clean up and your rim joist is insulated! No more cold floors and you will see your energy bills start to go down!

Making a Home More Energy Efficient in Simsbury, CT Making a Home More Energy Efficient in Simsbury, CT

This homeowner in Simsbury, CT called us out to see what she could do to make her home more energy efficient. When our building science specialist got to the home, he started his inspection and found the problem areas of the home. One of the areas that needed some work was the attic. Attics are the most important area of a home to look at when making a home energy efficient. This is because almost all of the heat you pay for leaves your home through the attic. To stop this problem from occurring any longer, the first thing we have to do is remove the old fiberglass insulation. Next step is to air seal every single penetration in the attic. This is very important because what we have to remember is that insulation does not stop air leak! After we air seal everything in the attic, we start to build the catwalk. The catwalk will let the homeowners have a little extra storage and have an easy way to move around in the attic. Once this is done, we can start to blow our cellulose insulation. The department of energy recommends homes in New England to have R-60 in the attic. This means that we will blow 20 inches of our trusoft cellulose into the attic. Now that we have completed this part of the home, this house will be more comfortable and more energy efficient!

Simsbury'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

Adding proper insulation to your crawl space can make your home healthier and also lower your energy bills by up to 30%. Crawl space insulation will block air from entering into your crawl space and we also add additional insulation so the existing air won't circulate throughout your home.

Job Stories From Simsbury, CT
Installing a Window Well in Simsbury, CT

This homeowner in Simsbury, CT called us originally hoping for basement insulation in her home. When we arrived, we noticed that her window well was allowing rain into the basement. Open metal window wells let leaves and debris collect in them, blocking light to the basement. Rain gets in, and water from over flooding gutters cascades into your window wells. Weeds grow in your window wells since they have no bottom, and mud splashes up against your window glass. And let’s face it - they are ugly! Results - Constant maintenance, far less natural light to the basement, and they are ugly!

 

We had the perfect solution for this customer! We installed a SunHouse™ window enclosure. The SunHouse™ is a bright color and has a bottom to reflect much more light into the basement. The bottom prevents weeds from growing and mud doesn’t splash against the windows. SunHouses™ have a sturdy matching clear cover to keep rain and leaves out*, and it keeps the wind from blowing against the windows.

 

(*While a SunHouse™ keeps most water out it cannot warrant against a window/well flooding. (A window well drain system will be necessary if that is a problem).)

Installing a SaniDryâ„¢ Sedona Dehumidifier in Simsbury, CT

This homeowner in Simsbury, CT called us hoping that we would be able to check the insulation in the home. When the Home Comfort Specialist arrived, he noted that there was very high humidity in the basement.  High humidity in a basement is caused by a number of important conditions that must be addressed such as open vents, leaking groundwater and dirt floors - all which must be fixed otherwise. 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. Since air rises up from the basement to the living space, if the basement is humid and smelly, so is the upstairs because of it. Once air and water leaks in a basement are fixed, an additional measure is needed to ensure the relative humidity stays low at all times, in all seasons. 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.

Air Seal & Wrap Open Air Space Around Chimney in Simsbury, CT

The building code requires that no combustible materials, including wood framing and insulation, be within 2" of a masonry chimney. this has left millions of homes with an airspace from the basement or crawl space right to the attic. Air that you paid to heat is continually leaking out of your home to the vented attic where it is lost. Results - a more drafty, uncomfortable home that's harder to heat, higher fuel and electric bills. First, the space between the wood framing and masonry is flashed with metal and then sealed airtight with special high-temperature fire caulk. Then, completely fireproof "Rock Wool" insulation panels are installed around the chimney so that TruSoft™ cellulose insulation may be blown against the chimney. In some cases, unfaced fiberglass batts may be used instead of Rock Wool panels. "Chimney Wrap" leaves no gaps in the insulation around your chimney, and seals one of the biggest air leaks in your home. Results - Lower house air leakage, less heat loss, home is more comfortable and easier to heat, lower fuel bills.
