Dryer Exhaust Never Properly Vented to Outside

Dryer Exhaust Never Properly Vented to Outside Dryer Exhaust Never Properly Vented to Outside

This dryer exhaust was never properly vented to the outside.  Among other issues in the crawl space this needed to be rectified. During encapsulation of the crawl space the Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva team has properly vented and sealed this dryer exhaust so that unwanted hot air and debris from the dryer will no longer be directed to the crawl space.

The rim joist of a home is rarely insulated and never sealed during construction. These joints and gaps between the framing allow for a lot of outside air to enter the home. This means that whatever temperature the outdoor air currently is, the same temperature air is being leaked into the home. This could make for very cold floors in the winter and hot, humid conditions for the crawl space in the summer.

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!

Annual Maintenance in Ocean City, MD

It's important, particularly here in the coastal climate of Ocean City, MD, to keep an eye on your crawlspace. Lots can go wrong down there and if it does a homeowner needs to know about it as soon as possible - before a small problem develops into a big deal. Most homeowners don't want to crawl around in their crawlspace. But Lawson Home Services technicians do it every day. They are trained to spot problems and address them quickly and efficiently. 

If you've have a crawlspace "encapsulation" Lawson Home Services will be there to check on the liner, dehumidification equipment, and the sump pump equipment to make sure all are in tip-top shape and performing as efficiently as possible. Lawson's technician will also have an eagle-eye out to spot other problems, like water leaks, pest intrusion, and mold and microbe growing on wooden surfaces.

It's quick, convenient, and affordable. So why not have Lawson Home Services provide you with an annual inspection of your home. After the inspection and service you will be given a report of all the things that were done, as well as a list of any recommendations and concerns that should be brought to your attention for action. 


Annual Maintenance in Ocean City, MD

Lawson Home Services recently conducted the recommended annual maintenance at this home in Ocean City, MD which had two primary pieces of home equipment for control of indoor moisture: a Sedona SaniDry™ dehumidifier and a sump pump. 

The tech first cleaned the pre-filter and replaced the pleated filter. Next the discharge hose was checked to ensure that is was clean and clear, allowing the SaniDry™ unit to drain properly into the sump. The condensate pump was checked for proper operation. And finally a test run of the SaniDry™ unit was conducted. 

Next the sump pump was inspected and cleaned as needed. The alarm and all switches and pressure relief systems were tested and verified for proper operation.

Finally the humidity of the air inside the crawlspace was tested to verify the dehumidification system was doing its job properly. The level was perfect. The moisture content of the wooden structures in the crawlspace were tested and found to be just 10%.

Everything checked out A-Okay this year. 


Its a simple, inexpensive service that can be done once a year. Call Lawson Home Services to inspect and service your crawlspace equipment today.

Poor Insulation Becomes Problematic for Ocean City, MD Homeowners

Poor insulation in one’s home can lead to high costs and discomfort over time.  When Ocean City homeowners Donna and Lou noticed that parts of their home were colder than others, they realized they had an insulation problem on their hands.  After using Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva for a previously unrelated problem and liking their work, Donna and Lou decided to call them again for help with their problem.

After explaining their situation to a Delmarva representative on the phone, they were soon met by Michael Brittingham and his installation crew, Production Team One.  Michael and the crew went throughout the house and found the spots that were cold.  Michael also noticed while examining the crawl space that it had moisture issues.  Thankfully, Michael had the perfect solution.  For the insulation within the home, Michael removed the old fiberglass insulation and had closed cell spray foam insulation installed.  Within the crawl space, Michael had the old floor debris removed and a SmartSump sump pump system installed.  This system comes with an alarm built in the cover, so if there is a risk of flooding, the homeowner is notified of it.  Closed cell spray foam insulation was also installed throughout the crawl space along with a 2” SilverGlo R10 insulation board.  

After a nine day installation and restoration process, Donna and Lou’s home is evenly insulated throughout and their crawl space is no longer an area of concern, all thanks to the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva.

SaniDry CX Eliminates Lingering Musty Smell in Ocean City, MD Home

James R. of Ocean City, MD noticed one day that parts of his house had a musty scent in the air.  Remembering that these problems typically come from within the crawl space, James knew he needed to act quickly before a bigger problem emerged.  After seeing an ad for Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva in the local newspaper, James decided to give them a call to send a representative out.

James was met by crawl space repair specialist Michael Tucker at his Ocean City home.  After showing Michael the musty smell within the house, Michael agreed that the problem most likely stems from a problem in the crawl space.  Michael then asked to check out the crawl space.  What he found was excessive moisture throughout the crawl space.  Luckily, Michael knew exactly what to install.  Michael explained to James that he should install closed cell spray foam insulation.  This specific type of insulation has air and water barrier properties allowing it to keep the elements out and insulate the home at the same time.  Michael also proposed a SaniDry CX dehumidification system, condensation pump combo.  This combination eliminates the excessive moisture in the air and will also get rid of the musty smell.  Additionally, Michael suggested adding an EverLast crawl space access door as opposed to his rusted metal one.

With the recommendations agreed upon, Michael called in Production Team One to complete the installation and restoration process.  Now that his crawl space is fixed, James's house is no longer is haunted by the musty smell and his crawl should continue to stay dry in the upcoming years.

Energy efficiency and drafty house
Project Location: Ocean City, MD
Brian Postles previously worked with me to give me an estimate a couple years ago, but he may have left the company. I'm currently getting quotes for smartjacks to replace my piers in my crawl space. Depending on cost I am considering two options: 1. Replace 8 piers with smartjacks. Supplemental beams needed - 85 linear feet. 2. Replace 16 piers with smartjacks. Supplemental beams needed - 179 linear feet. Let me know if you need to come take a look at the crawlspace again or if the photos you had previously are sufficient. The crawlspace is encapsulated now so any install of smartjacks will have to take that into account. I will not be at the house for several weeks but we can schedule a time for someone to come take a look while I am not there. The crawl space is accessible. Thank you.

We think the crawl space needs to have spray foam due to the large amount air comes off the bay. We had fiberglass installed many years ago which was a big mistake. Need to get an expert opinion. Its cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Doug
