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!

Energy Code Test Out in Selbyville, DE

Since legislated in Delaware nearly two decades ago, builders are now required to meet energy efficiency standards. Lawson Home Services is called in to perform what is known as a "Test-Out", which is a third-party, arms length procedure intended to verify the builder has performed to code. 

The pictures below show Lawson Energy Auditor Ryan Wurzel, conducting a duct leakage test, which shows how well the HVAC contractor sealed the heating and air conditioning ducts. Leaky HVAC ducts are one of the biggest causes for loss of energy, high utility costs, and uncomfortable rooms that are difficult to heat and cool.

Aeroseal Duct Sealing in Selbyville, DE

Even in brand new homes the HVAC ductwork leaks. And over time it gets worse because the materials used to seal the connections and cracks, mastic and duct tape, tend to break down over time and fail. The problem with leaky HVAC ductwork is that the air leaks out of the ducts before being delivered to all the rooms in the house, leaving those rooms more difficult to heat and cool than the rest of the house. And of course this means higher utility bills and people fighting over the thermostat settings.  

A UC scientist, working on another problem, realized the gummy aerosol material he had created would be a great way to seal HVAC ductwork from the inside out. And Thus AeroSeal was born.

Have a look at the photos taken during the AeroSeal process in this Selbyville, DE home. You'll see what Lawson Home Services' tech saw during the process. When the process started the leakage was equivalent to 73.6 square inches and when finished was reduced to just 14.4 square inches, a dramatic decrease of 80.4%. 

Call Lawson Home Services today and let one of our sales persons have a look to see if we may be able to help improve the efficiency of your HVAC ductwork. As an added bonus, Lawsons' Platinum Duct Cleaning Service is performed prior to the AeroSeal process, removing any accumulated dust and lint. When the process is done, not only will your HVAC be working more efficiently, but the air you breathe will be a lot cleaner.

You might want to know, cleaning the indoor and outdoor coil is included in the service. This is an important thing to do, since it increases the efficiency of the HVAC equipment, lowers the cost of operation, and extends the life of very expensive HVAC equipment.

Home Energy Audit in Selbyville, DE

If there were a way for you to spend a little bit of money to save a lot, wouldn't you want to know what it was? That's exactly what Carol, in Selbyville, DE wanted to know. Lawson Home Services Energy Auditor, Ryan Wurzel, recently conducted such an audit at her home. Once completed, each of the energy wasting flaws in her home were all listed on a report, each with an explanation of the problem and how it could be solved. Audits focus on three main things , PDR  - Production of the conditioned air (efficient heating and cooling), Delivery of the air to the rooms of the home through ductwork or other means, and Retention of the air, by air sealing and insulating the floors walls and ceilings, thus preventing the conditioned air from leaking out of the home or undesirable heat transfer (heat getting out during winter and getting in during the summer). 

The audits are conducted with sophisticated state-of-the art scientific measuring equipment such and the infrared camera (shown in the picture below, which essentially "sees" heat as it transfers right through the structural components of the home. Here are a few of the things the audit revealed:

  • Part of the vaulted ceilings was not adequately filled with insulation, exposing large areas for unwanted heat transfer. 
  • Canned lights mounted in the ceilings provide a pathway for the loss of heat in the winter time.
  • Lack of insulation around the two skylights.
  • Sagging insulation in the belly of the pre-manufactured home allows for air leakage and conductive heat loss right through the floors.

A sales person will now visit Carol to discuss with her how each of these issues can be addressed, and help her decide which measure can be accomplished within her budget.

Energy Audits for Delaware residents are currently being subsidized by Energize Delaware, a program sponsored by the State of Delaware. Out-of-pocket cost of these audits for the homeowner is currently just 10% of the total cost, and just 5% for first responders and military personnel. You'd be passing up a great opportunity to make your home more comfortable and potentially lower your energy bills. Call Lawson Home Services today.

Dryer Duct Clean Out in Selbyville, DE

This dryer duct clean out job in Selbyville, DE was fairly routine. Cleaning was easy to perform and resulted in an airflow nine times greater than what it was before. That's going to make a huge difference, not only in how long it takes a load of clothes to get dry, but in how much it costs. Did you know a clothes dryer is the most expensive of all home appliances to operate. That's why it makes sense to have your dryer ductwork serviced on a regular basis. It only takes about an hour to do the work in most cases and the service will pay for its own cost in just a short time. So why not call Lawson Home Service to schedule your dryer duct clean out today.

Dryer Duct Repair and Clean Out in Selbyville, DE

The dryer vent termination at this home in Selbyville, DE was dinged up a bit. Those rough edges can snag lint and impede the airflow through the dryer vent.

The accumulation of lint in the ductwork also increases the risk of a fire. That's why it's so important to schedule regular dryer vent clean out service at your home. The service can be performed quickly and inexpensively. So why procrastinate? Pick up the phone and call Lawson Home Services to schedule a dryer duct clean out service at your home.

Our tech was able to straighten out the flanges a bit to get the airflow back to what it should be.

Proper Insulation and Tankless Water Heater Saves Selbyville Homeowner Hundreds

After years of great results with their insulation, Selbyville, DE homeowner Jen E. decided that she wanted get a full home energy audit done.  After contemplation of what company to choose, she was finally persuaded to call Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva after hearing they did fantastic work.


Delmarva sent out insulation specialist Michael Tucker to meet with Jen at her Selbyville home and perform the full energy audit.  Michael evaluated the home and realized a few areas of the home were not sealed properly and were costing her money.  Michael also specifically pointed out her water heater, which he stated was costing her additional money.  For remediation, Michael recommended that Jen have the ducts throughout her home cleaned and sealed.  To replace the water heater, Michael recommended Jen invest in a tankless water heater.  A tankless water heater is more energy efficient and can save a homeowner up to anywhere between $200 to $600 a month on their electric bill!


Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One and once at the house, they allowed Jen to watch as they installed the products to ensure she was receiving the best treatment possible!  With her home freshly insulated and an energy efficient water heater in place, Jen’s home is more energy efficient and costs her less money than ever before!

Sun Chuter Radiant Barrier Panel System Insulates Selbyville, DE Attic

Selbyville, DE homeowners Brad and Annie L. found themselves in a predicament when they realized temperatures were inconsistent throughout their home.  Looking for a solution, Brad called Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva to come out and install an attic fan.


Delmarva sent out representative Raymond Bremmerman to meet with Brad and Annie at their Selbyville home.  After inspecting the attic along with other parts of the house, Raymond explained to Brad that an attic fan wouldn’t solve his problem. Instead Raymond recommended that insulation and a radiant barrier be installed instead.  Raymond recommended that TruSoft blown in cellulose insulation be installed throughout the home.  Along with this, Michael recommended a Sun Chuter Radiant Barrier Panel System to be installed in the attic.  It keeps heat in during the winter months and reflects heat during the summer for the best results.  Other products recommended for installation included a SilverGlow R10 insulation board and vent baffles.  


With the recommended products and procedure agreed upon, Raymond called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the installation process.  With Brad and Annie’s home properly insulated like they wanted it to be, they can continue their days stress free knowing the temperature in their home will be consistent throughout.
