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.
