Attic Insulation in Chester, MD

Attic Insulation in Chester, MD

Attic Insulation in Chester, MD Attic Insulation in Chester, MD

This homeowner in Chester, MD was suffering from old, dirty attic insulation. This may seem like a minor problem, but the results turn into major problems. Over the years, old attic insulation collects dust, dirt, pollen, bugs, etc.

It's time to get rid of the old insulation and welcome the new! Dr. Energy Saver can remove a homeowners old insulation and replace it with new TruSoft Cellulose Insulation

The new TruSoft Cellulose Insulation also helps the homeowner with their vented attic. Vented attics allow air to leak from inside the home through the attic floor. Once the air from within the home reaches the attic it is lost. This causes drafty rooms, cold floors and higher fuel and electric bills. 

With the new TruSoft Cellulose Insulation being installed the homeowner can now receive results such as warmer floors, less drafty rooms and lower fuel/electric bills.

Keeping your home comfortable year around can be stressful. With air finding the path of least resistance, the money that you are spending on heating and cooling could increase if your home isn't probably insulated.

The homeowner of this home located in Chester, Maryland, very aware of his leaky home called Dr. Energy Saver out to figure out a way to make his house more energy efficient. 

Upon the inspection, we came across multiple problems related to why he was experiencing discomfort inside his home and also some health risk. There was little to no insulation inside of his attic causing the air he paid to heat and cool his house to travel through the living space and out into the attic. Also a big eye opener for both, the homeowner and our specialist was that the bath fan was vented straight into the attic causing humidity levels to rise and microbial growth started to form.

 Dr. Energy Saver then came in and first, removed the previous insulation inside of the attic then vented his bath fan to the exterior of his home. This prevents microbial growth growing all over your roof deck, rafters, and ceiling joist. Next we converted the attic into conditioned space by installing 3' of closed-cell spray foam to the roof deck. This will make your home less drafty, more comfortable, warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer. Also lowering your fuel and electric bills! 

Dr. Energy Saver has now fixed this homeowners problem of comfort inside of his home and disintegrated the microbial growth in the process.

Before we start going through the home, we will sit down with you to see what your primary concerns are, and we will make these issues a priority. Once we have completed the audit, we will talk with you again to go over the results and our findings. Based on what we uncover, we will make recommendations to fix your home and create a more energy-efficient environment you and your family will enjoy for years to come!

Radon Testing & Mitigation 

Radon is a naturally occurring invisible & odorless gas that can have a big impact on the air quality of your home. Radon is also the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoke. High levels of radon gas are commonly found throughout Delaware & E. Shore Maryland and because radon gas cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted the only way to ensure that you and your family are not affected by this dangerous gas is to have one of our experts visit your home and perform proper testing. Radon testing is the fastest & most effective way to ensure the safety of your family. Depending on the results of the test, Lawson Home Services can offer several radon mitigation solutions that will limit exposure to the gas and also ventilate it away from your home. Our radon mitigation methods are highly successful and we always stand behind our work! To learn more about radon gas mitigation and testing call or click today!

Job Stories From Chester, MD
Dryer duct clean out and repair in Chester, MD

A dryer works by blowing warm air over your damp clothes, causing the moisture to evaporate. That moist air has to be carried away, and is pushed outside the home through ductwork. The faster that air can be exhausted the sooner your clothes will get dry. But if your ductwork gets clogged up, like this one in Chester, MD, then the air slows down. That causes the dryer to run longer which runs up your utility bill. And since the dryer is the most expensive home appliance to operate, it makes sense to keep the duct work clean so your dryer can operate most efficiently. It will also free up a lot of your time on laundry day, so you don't have to stand around waiting and waiting for your clothes to get dry. 

This homeowner didn't realize it, but the flex duct going from her dryer to the rigid tubing had torn and needed to be replaced. That was a quick and inexpensive fix.

If you haven't cleaned out your dryer ductwork then pick up the phone and call Lawson Home Services. We'll put you on the schedule and before you know it we'll have your dryer ducts sparkling clean. We also clean out HVAC ductwork, important for efficient operation of your heating and air conditioning systems and for cleaner, healthier indoor air.

Annual Maintenance in Chester, MD

Donnie Lonski, Lawson Home Services' savvy tech, recently performed the annual maintenance service for these prudent homeowners in Chester, MD. Catching problems before they turn into major issues is one of the advantages of scheduling regular service and maintenance. In this case a very dangerous problem was discovered as Donnie entered the crawlspace. Somehow the condensation pump was unplugged, resulting in an overflow onto the CleanSpace™ liner floor. The worst part was one end of the extension cord was laying in a puddle of water while the other end was still plugged in to the electrical outlet. Donnie's eagle eye spotted the problem right away.\ and the situation was immediately remedied. The only consequence was the moisture content of the floor joists in the crawlspace was slightly elevated - but still below the 16% we don't want to exceed, since mold growth and wood rot can begin to occur at higher moisture levels. 

The Sedona SaniDry™ dehumidifier was inspected and serviced: filter cleaned and replaced. The unit was swithced on for a test run, the proper settings verified., and the humidity of the airflow coming out was measured and found to be as dry as a bone - just what we want.

Next the sump pump was inspected and all moving parts inspected to ensure proper operation of the pump. Cleaning was not necessary in this case. 

Finally the humidity of the air inside the crawlspace was measured at 59%, a bit higher than we like, but that was likely due to the condensate overflow onto the CleanSpace™ floor which we fixed. 
If there are no unexpected problems in the meantime, we will be back next year to make sure everything continues to be in proper working order.

Wet mold musty crawl space.
Project Location: Chester, MD
I had the home fully insulated three years ago, but a renovation resulted in some blown-in insultation loss and I'd like to increase insulation over a new living area. The new living area is 13'x26' and has 12" fiberglass batt insulation. I'd like to cover that with 6" of blown-in insulation. The main house is 26x40' and the attic over that part of the house was disturbed and needs "touch-up", probably an average of 6"-9" of new insulation.
