A Newark, Delaware homeowner, prioritizing their family's well-being, reached out to Lawson Home Services due to concerns about indoor air quality. This proactive approach demonstrates their commitment to creating a healthy home environment.

Lawson Home Services prioritizes your family's health. Upon contact, the homeowner explained their desire to protect their family from potential indoor air quality hazards. We recommended a short-term radon test, a quick and informative approach to assess the situation.

The test results revealed elevated radon levels exceeding the EPA's recommended action level for radon mitigation systems. Radon gas is a naturally occurring, colorless, and odorless gas that can seep into homes through cracks in the foundation, accumulating to dangerous levels if left unchecked. Understanding the importance of addressing this issue, the homeowner immediately contacted us for a free quote.

We promptly provided a free quote via email, outlining the recommended course of action. The homeowner, impressed by our promptness and clear communication, readily accepted the proposal.

Our certified radon mitigation specialists then conducted a thorough inspection of the area to determine the most optimal placement for the system. This meticulous approach ensured long-term effectiveness. The installation itself went smoothly, minimizing disruption to the homeowner's daily routine.

The homeowner expressed immense satisfaction with the entire process. The knowledge that the system came with a warranty provided added peace of mind. Following installation, we conducted a follow-up radon test to verify the system's effectiveness. The results were a resounding success, with the radon level dropping significantly below the EPA's action level. This measurable outcome ensured a safe and healthy environment for the homeowner's family.

Take a look at this picture. Would you want to breathe the air inside this HVAC duct? As if Delawareans don't have enough problems with allergies, adding dirty ductwork on top of their allergy problems is likely to drive their respiratory system into a sneezing - coughing frenzy.  If Pete could have seen what our duct cleaning tech saw when he opened up his ductwork he'd have been calling Lawson Home Services a very long time ago. This particular case was really bad. Every time the heating or air conditioning system kicked on this disgusting junk was blown all throughout their house in Newark, DE. Poor Pete! ACHOOOO!

And that's just the start of the problem. Dust and grime makes its way to the HVAC coil wreaking havoc with the sensitive operating pressures. In this case the air conditioner was operating so inefficiently it wasn't cooling the house at all. If let go much longer it would have resulted in complete compressor over heating and lockup, which is a very expensive repair typically amounting to thousands of dollars. And worst yet, it typically happens on the coldest or hottest day of the year when your air conditioner or heat pump is struggling the most to keep up. You don't need that. 

Fortunately there's a solution: Lawson Home Services' Platinum Duct Cleaning Service. We not only clean your ductwork so that it looks like the day it was installed, we also clean the coils of both your indoor and outdoor unit, thus prolonging the life of the equipment, and allowing it to operate much more efficiently. This means increased comfort and lower utility bills. That's a win-win situation.
So don't procrastinate. Call Lawson Home services today and get on our schedule. You'll breathe a whole lot better when we get done ... literally!

Job Stories From Newark, DE
Breathing Easy in Newark: Lawson Home Services Lowers Radon Risk for Family-Focused Homeowner

Why They Needed a Radon Mitigation System:

A Newark, Delaware homeowner, prioritizing their family's health, became concerned about indoor air quality. Testing revealed elevated radon levels exceeding the EPA's recommended action level for radon mitigation systems. Radon gas is a naturally occurring, colorless, and odorless gas that can seep into homes through cracks in the foundation, accumulating to dangerous levels if left unchecked. Radon mitigation was necessary to safeguard the family's well-being.

Why They Chose Lawson Home Services:

The homeowner chose Lawson Home Services due to their:

  • Transparent Communication: They appreciated a company that provided clear explanations and a straightforward approach throughout the process.
  • Reputation for Clear Pricing: Lawson Home Services' transparent pricing structure instilled confidence in the homeowner.

What's Causing the Problem:

Radon gas is the culprit. This odorless and colorless gas can enter basements and crawlspaces through cracks in the foundation, accumulating to dangerous levels if left unchecked. The homeowner's concerns and test results confirmed the presence of radon, necessitating mitigation.

How We Fixed the Problem (Mitigation Process):

  1. Actionable Measures and Confirmation: Lawson Home Services prioritizes healthy homes. Following the homeowner's initial contact, we recommended a short-term radon test to assess the situation. The test results confirmed the need for action.

  2. Transparent Communication and Customized Solution: We promptly provided a free quote via email, outlining a customized mitigation plan based on the test results and our transparent pricing structure. Clear communication throughout the process is a cornerstone of our service.

  3. Expert Mitigation and Verification: Confident in our expertise and transparent pricing, the homeowner readily accepted the proposal. Our certified radon mitigation specialists then conducted a thorough inspection and implemented the customized system:

    • Meticulous Sealing: All cracks and gaps identified during the inspection were meticulously sealed with a special sealant to prevent future radon gas intrusion. This included any cracks around the sump pump pit (if present).
    • Strategic Pipe Placement: The radon pipe was meticulously installed throughout the basement, ensuring proper connection to the rest of the system and reaching the designated exit point outside the home.
    • Powerful Radon Fan Installation: A powerful yet energy-efficient radon fan was strategically placed within the system. This fan continuously draws radon gas from beneath the foundation and vents it safely outside the home.
    • Manometer Monitoring: A manometer was strategically placed within the system to provide a visual indication of the suction power created by the radon fan. This allows for ongoing monitoring and system optimization.
  4. Verification and Lasting Peace of Mind: Following installation, we conducted a follow-up radon test using a new kit to verify the system's effectiveness. The results were a resounding success, with the radon level dropping significantly below the EPA's action level. This measurable outcome ensured a safe and healthy environment for the homeowner's family.

What's Unique About This Situation:

This project emphasizes the homeowner's proactive approach to family health and the importance of clear communication and transparent pricing throughout the process.

Basement Safety First: Newark Homeowner Chooses Lawson Home Services for Radon Testing

Why They Needed Radon Testing:

A Newark, Delaware homeowner prioritized their family's health by proactively addressing potential radon exposure in the basement. With their son recently moving into the basement living space, they recognized the importance of radon testing services to ensure a safe indoor environment. Radon gas is a naturally occurring health hazard that can accumulate in basements due to their proximity to the soil.

Why They Chose Lawson Home Services:

The homeowner chose Lawson Home Services due to our knowledge and reputation as a professional radon testing company. Faced with the potential health risks of radon exposure, they trusted Lawson's expertise in providing accurate indoor air quality measurements.

Understanding the Potential Problem:

The potential problem was the presence of radon gas in the basement. Radon can seep into homes through cracks and foundations, posing a health risk if left undetected. Since basements are typically located underground, they have a higher risk of accumulating radon.

Lawson Ensures Accurate Results:

Lawson Home Services addressed the homeowner's concerns by conducting a professional radon test. The text highlights their adherence to radon testing best practices, including:

  • Understanding the Home's Layout: Lawson's inspectors likely discussed the home's construction, age, and any features that could influence radon levels.
  • Strategic Monitor Placement: Radon monitors were likely placed in the lowest living area (usually the basement) following EPA guidelines, avoiding areas near windows, doors, drafts, or vents that could affect readings.
  • Appropriate Testing Duration: The text doesn't specify the duration, but Lawson likely used a testing period recommended by the EPA based on the homeowner's needs (short-term or long-term testing).

Positive Outcome and Importance of Professional Testing:

Lawson's testing revealed a radon level of 2.6 pCi/L, which falls below the EPA's action level where no corrective action is needed. This is positive news, but it emphasizes the importance of professional testing. Improper procedures can lead to inaccurate results, potentially causing unnecessary worry or delaying mitigation if levels are actually high.

Radon Depressurization Fan in Newark, DE

This is a radon depressurization fan. It is connected to a port in the basement floor slab by PVC pipe. The fan creates a suction on the soil gasses beneath the home to extract the deadly radon gas, and vent it away safely above the roofline. 

Radon gas is responsible for 15% of lung cancer and may be the cause of other cancers, as well. Radon can occur ANYWHERE on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Contact Lawson Home Services to schedule a radon test for your home. Lawson is the number one Radon protection service on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Home Energy Audit in Newark, DE

An Energize Delaware home energy audit was conducted revealing many issues inside this home, in Newark DE, typical of homes built in the 1950s. The original attic insulation, likely 5 1/4 inch thick fiberglass batts (approximately R17), was, at some point in the past, was upgraded to 8 inches of blown cellulose (approximately R27). Nowadays attics are are typically insulated to R49-60.
Other problems and deficiencies, which are common for this vintage home were, also noted during the energy audit conducted by Lawson Home Services:

  • Uninsulated basement walls
  • Uncontrolled humidity in basement resulting in significant amount of black mold growing on wall surfaces
  • Uninsulated and unsealed rim band - results in unwanted air leaks and energy transfer
  • Uninsulated and unsealed pull-down attic access stairs - results in major unwanted air leaks and energy transfer

These are but a few of the many problems revealed during the energy audit resulting in rooms that are difficult to heat and cool during winter and summer; unhealthy indoor air quality; high utility bills. 

An energy audit is a useful tool that helps homeowners develop a strategy to improve home comfort, lower energy costs, and improve indoor air quality. It is particularly important in older home stock, since these homes were built at a time when little consideration was given to make homes energy efficient. As a result, over time, problems develop, some resulting in costly repairs. 
The good news is Energize Delaware subsidizes these audits so the cost to the homeowner is just $50 ($25 for first responders and military personnel). The homeowner receives a detailed report showing the most effective and cost efficient improvement that can be made to the home. In most cases the investment in improvements pay for themselves in just a few years. Wouldn't you rather be paying that money to improve your home comfort and value rather than paying it to the utility company. 
Contact Lawson Home Services right away to schedule a, Energize Delaware home energy audit for your home. It's a wise decision.

Call Lawson Home Services today to schedule a radon measurement test for your home.

 

*Radon gas, invisible, odorless, and colorless, is the second leading cause of lung cancer.

EVERY HOME SHOULD BE TESTED FOR RADON.

Radon is a matter to be taken seriously by ALL homeowners. Deadly radon gas occurs naturally in the rock formations deep underground, seeps up through the soil, and often enters a home though cracks, sumps, and other means, accumulating to dangerously high levels inside the home. Radon is present in nearly every home. Scientific studies show that one of every fourteen American homes has a concentration of radon gas that exposes the occupants to a risk for developing lung cancer the same as if each of the occupants were smoking cigarettes. This is especially bad for young children and those with compromised immune systems, like the chronically ill, or elderly individuals.

Doug, a homeowner in Newark, DE, had his home tested and discovered he needed to do something to reduce the levels of radon inside his home. Lawson Home Services installed a radon mitigation system inside his home in December 2023. Now Doug, and his family, will have peace of mind, knowing proper precautions have been taken to protect them from the risks of lung cancer due to radon gas exposure.

Radon Levels in Newark, DE

Another home in Newark, DE was tested by Lawson Home Services and found to have worrisome levels of deadly radon gas accumulating inside. This one tested at 2.7 pCi/l.

It is important to have your home tested for radon, as one in every fourteen homes in the USA are found to have risky levels of radon, increasing the chances the occupants of those homes will develop lung cancer. Delaware, as well as Pennsylvania and Maryland, is known to have a much higher incidence of radon gas than other parts of the USA. 

So you owe it to yourself and the occupants to have your home tested for radon, and if found to be above 2.0 pci/l you should consider installing an inexpensive radon depressurization system to reduce the levels of radon inside your home. Lawson Home Services can do the testing, and if yours is one of the unfortunate homes that has high levels of radon, can install and effective radon mitigation system. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

Duct Sealing in Newark, DE

This project in Newark, DE was completed recently. AeroSeal™ is THE way to go for sealing HVAC ductwork. Invented by a research scientist at the University of California, this amazing process seals ducts from the inside out, using the leaks themselves to guide the material into the holes and sealing them as it passes through. Utterly ingenious. You won't get these kinds of results the old-fashioned way using tape and mastic. Nothing is left unaddressed. 

The equipment does not lie. There was a 64% reduction of the air leakage. That means 64% of the air that was being wasted to leakage is now going into the rooms where it is needed. That will make the home more comfortable, and it will lower the energy requirements and thus lower the energy bill.

Attic Insulation in Newark, DE

Lawson Home Services was recently called to see what could be done to upgrade the insulation in this Newark, DE home. What we found in the attic was no surprise. We see it all the time; intruders. This looked like birds tried to bring a hayfield into the attic. Of course if the birds got in there, so will the squirrels, bats, mice, and anything else that might find attic insulation makes a cozy home. Unfortunately these uninvited guests do their business all over. This creates an auspicious environment for all kinds of nasty stuff to start growing. And of course there are the eventual foul odors.

This owner wants to concentrate on his attic and worry about the rest of the house later. We can see why. Lawson Home Services will do a complete attic make over here. First the old dirty, urine soaked fiberglass will be totally removed and the attic floor cleaned down to the drywall and studs. Next the air gaps in the attic will be air sealed. This prevents conditioned air from being sucked up into the attic where it does no good, a complete waste of your utility dollars. Finally the new cellulose insulation will be blown in to a depth of 17-inches, giving the attic an insulation value of R60. That will make a big difference, not only in comfort for the occupants of this house, but it will lower the energy bills.

Energy Audit in Newark, DE

Lawson Home Services conducted an energy audit of this Newark, DE home. The HVAC duct work was found to be quite leaky, which results in elevated energy bills. The homeowner elected to go with the recommendation to seal the ductwork with Aeroseal™, a patented process invented by a researcher at the University of California. The Aeroseal™ process is unique from other duct sealing methods as it seals the ductwork from the inside out. 

The certificate below shows the ductwork leakage was reduced by 66%. This will make a difference not only in energy costs, but in ensuring air this homeowner pays to heat and cool actually makes it to the rooms where it is needed rather than leaking into spaces where it does no good.

Call Lawson Home Services today to schedule an energy audit and find out how you can be more comfortable and save energy. The audits are currently being subsidized by the Energize Delaware Program, which brings the cost to just $50 for the homeowner. Military and first responders received even greater discounts for a cost of just $25. This is a time limited program so jump on this opportunity while it lasts.

What is a passive radon system?

Many newer homes are fitted with passive radon systems.  What a passive system does is it uses pressure differential (The Stack Effect) and air currents to draw radon gas out of the soil up and out of the home.  Many homeowners who have a passive system or purchase a home with a passive system may choose to make it an active system by adding a fan that will help draw the gas out more efficiently and effectively.

 

At Lawson Home Services, if you have a passive system, we still require a qualified representative to come out and examine the system.  We often see that passive systems have been installed incorrectly and/or that activating them isn’t beneficial to the customer.

 

Ultimately, if you have a passive system our representative will walk you through (1) if your system can be activated, (2) if it canNOT activated, why that is, or (3) why turning a passive system to an active system will lower your radon level.

 

We want you, the customer, to know what it is you paid us to do and why we are doing it.

Properly Insulate Your Home Today with Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva

Proper insulation is what separates the highs and lows when it comes to a homeowner’s electric bill.  When homeowner Curtis K. found that his electric bill was through the roof he wanted a reason why: was it poor insulation or was it just how high he keeps the thermostat?  Seeking professional assistance, Curtis began looking around for an expert.  After searching for some time on line, Curtis came across Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva, and after seeing their impressive credentials he called them to come out and evaluate his home.

Shortly after contacting them, Curtis was met by Delmarva representative Michael Tucker at his Newark, MD home.  After explaining his current situation to Michael, Michael began evaluating the house for heat loss.  He eventually made his way to the attic and found that the finished attic was poorly insulated and was letting heat escape.  Michael had only one solution for Curtis’s problem and that is the installation of Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation.  Closed Cell Spray Foam is an all-in-one insulation that doubles as an air sealant.  This type of insulation is ideal for any situation, even under the most extreme insulation requirements. Curtis agreed to the product to be installed and Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the insulation installation process.  

Proper insulation can make it or break it when it comes to an energy efficient home.  Curtis’s home was once taking money out of his pocket that he didn’t realize, but thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva, Curtis’s home is now energy efficient and will continue to be for years to come!

Sealing Air Leaks in Newark, DE

In the winter, it’s very easy to tell where air is leaking into your home.  Whether it’s around doors and windows or small openings around the house, these cracks allow the conditioned air to escape and cold air to get in.  Gregory P. contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva and described that he had signs of moisture on his ceilings and possible ice dams, as well as insufficient insulation that may be the cause of these problems.

Energy expert Michael Tucker went out to assess the problem and recommended an energy efficient solution.  He concluded that attic insulation and air sealing, an insulated attic door, airtight insulated boxes over can lights, and spray foam insulation should be installed. Each of these would effectively seal the home’s outer envelope and reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer.

Gregory P. can now rest assured that ice damming will no long be a possibility because of the sealed air leaks and added attic insulation.  Additionally, his heating and cooling system will not have to work as hard to keep the home comfortable all year round.   

Air Sealing & Insulation Increases Home Energy Efficiency

A home with air leaks and insufficient insulation loses energy and typically causes the heating and cooling system to work harder in order to keep the home at a comfortable temperature.  

Wade H. was interested in the cost and time it would take to properly air seal and apply insulation to his home.  Energy specialist Michael Tucker from Dr. Energy Saver went out to assess Wade’s home and give him an appropriate estimate. 

In one short day, the production team from Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva went out and installed two inches of closed cell spray foam insulation and well as insulating and air sealing 10” rim joists.  This work will definitely increase overall energy efficiency because the interior air will not be able to get out as easily, and heat transfer will be slowed.  Wade can now enjoy a more comfortable and healthy home for years to come.
