Before and After Pictures from Georgetown

A dirty dryer vent may not seem like a big deal, but in addition to being a fire hazard it runs up your gas or electric bill. The clothes dryer uses more energy than any other household appliance and works by evaporating the moisture off your clothes then blowing the moist air away.  The faster the airstream the faster your clothes get dry, and the less it costs. So keeping dryer ductwork clean is important.

 

Lawson Home Services technician measured the speed of the airstream coming directly out of the dryer at 18 mph.  But hooked up to the dirty duct the poor dryer couldn't even get the airstream up to 5 mph.  But after a thorough clean-out the airstream was cruising along at 15 mph, a threefold improvement.

Custom Home Energy Audits

The best way to determine what the cause of your home's inefficiencies are is by performing a home energy audit. Our custom home energy audit can help us discover the root cause for your home's issues, and while we are going through the house, we can figure out what solutions we can use to permanently fix this. 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! Contact us today for a home energy consultation. 

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 Georgetown, DE
Annual Maintenance in Georgetown, DE

The Sedona SaniDry™ dehumidifier was installed in this Georgetown, DE home some time ago. Lawson Home Services was called to do the annual maintenance on it. This service is quick and inexpensive, but the paybacks are well worth it. 

During the service we do the following:

  • Filters are removed, cleaned and replaced.
  • The unit is checked to see the settings are correct and have not been changed.
  • We test run the unit and check the output to see the machine is performing as it should.
  • Condensate pump operation is checked and hoses are inspected and cleaned as needed.

As you can see in the "before after" picture below, the unit is set to 43% and the humidity of the output, as measured by a sensitive test instrument shows the unit is maintaining exactly the same humidity. Everything here is A-okay. See you next year.

Duct Cleaning in Georgetown, DE

Kids can be hard on a home systems, especially when HVAC registers are located on the floors of the home. This Georgetown, DE homeowner wanted to reduce dust and allergens in her home. Lawson Home Services' sales person, Michael Medianick, went out to assess the situation. 

Michael found dirt, debris, parts of children's toys, and even Goldfish Crackers down inside the registers. Much of the debris had gone even deeper into the ductwork. The inside of the ductwork was a fuzzy mess. The return duct was showing a major mold bloom which was feeding off the moisture in the air and the dirt being sucked into the return register.

Seriously adding to the dust problem was a disconnected dryer vent connection which turned a huge amount of fine lint particles into the air. 

There is only one solution when the problem gets this bad: Lawson's Platinum Duct Cleaning Service. When Lawson's meticulous crew gets done your ductwork will look like it was just installed brand new. 

Dryer vents can easily become kinked and disconnected. Lawson Home Services solves this problem quickly and easily with MagVent™ magnetic dryer vent connector which automatically aligns and pulls the flex duct tight against the outlet fitting. 
Typically in these situations we also recommend sealing the ductwork from the inside with AeroSeal™, an amazing product designed by a brilliant research scientist at the University of California.

Energy Audit at new home in Georgetown, DE

Lawson Home Services Energy Auditor, Ryan Wurzel, recently conducted an audit at this recently constructed home in Georgetown, DE. The homeowner called because he was experiencing unusually high humidity levels in his home, as were many of his neighbors in the new Hawthorne development on Route 9 east of Georgetown. 
The testing confirmed the home was built very tight and needed no additional air sealing. The duct work was sealed with mastic and tape. The problem with this is that mastic cracks and tape fails to hold over time. This leaves the possibility of developing leaky ductwork in the future, having the potential to drive up energy costs. One solution to this is to have the duct work sealed from the inside out with Aeroseal™. 

High humidity levels in crawlspaces is to be expected in this Mid-Atlantic coastal climate. The solution is simple: Install a Sedona SaniDry™ dehumidifier in the crawlspace. This homeowner has requested we return for this installation so he can be sure his new home will not start growing mold and the wooden floor structures will not become soggy and begin rotting.

Work Requests From Georgetown, DE
Project Location: Georgetown, DE
The home we own was built 5 years ago and was built in large part during the winter of 2014/2015. We had a mold issue in the basement that was remediated by the builder before we move in. Disinfectant was used, drywall was cut and replaced and commercial dehumidifiers were onsite for months. I have not noticed the problem since that time. However, we only spend a few months a year in this home and I notice that my allergies are worse here in the winter months than they are at any other time of the year. I spoke with my PCP and she indicated that there could be a mold or allergen issue in the home. I see you do mold testing but i need to speak with someone about your services and how you test for mold and whether you perform air quality testing for allergens?
