Attic Insulation and Mold Removal in Marlboro, NJ

Attic Insulation and Mold Removal in Marlboro, NJ

Before After
Attic Insulation and Mold Removal in Marlboro, NJ Attic Insulation and Mold Removal in Marlboro, NJ

Before:

This Kneewall Space in Marlboro, NJ, has old fiberglass insulation that’s trapped between the plastic liner and sheetrock.  The plastic liner has created moisture or condensation that has formed mildew and mold on the sheetrock.  We also have cold air that enters the attic kneewall space through leaky seams and fascia/soffit assemblies or through vents.

After:

Our crew removed all the old fiberglass insulation and plastic liners.  We also sprayed the molded sheetrock with our Mold-X Neutralizer.  This successfully eradicates the biofilm: the ‘lifeline’ for mold and bacteria.

Installing blocks of our SilverGlo foam insulation over the joist bay walls increases the R-value by 24% compared to regular EPS foam.  Sealing the seams with our Orange ZypFoam completes this project.  The results keeps hot or cold air in the Kneewall Space and prevents hot or cold air from seeping into the joining room.

This customer in Neptune NJ, had signifcant comfort, energy and indoor air quality concerns.   The duct system in crawl space was a major contributing factor.   Before ducts leaked heated and cooled air into crawl, as well as allowed a direct  air path from the crawl space into the living space above. The crawl space was wet, loaded with insects, rodents, droppings, wet moldy insulation just to name a few. We repaired and sealed the duct system, removed contaminated materials and installed a Clean space crawl encapsulation system. Now the crawl is dry, warm and clean. The ductwork is now inside a insulated crawl VS. outside the building shell.

Wet nasty crawl space with wet dirt floor, fiberglass insulation installed upside down, mold developing in crawl due to high moisture.   Dr. Energy Saver division of Home Comfort & Energy Experts removed insulation and installed dimpled drainage matting, to allow water movement and provide a thermal break, installed clean space liner on floors, piers, and 1' up the walls, 2" Silver glo insulation on walls and finishing up by insulating and sealing the rim joist. (where the wooden structure sits on the block foudation) with 2" of closed cell spray foam.   Great looking crawl.

Job Stories From Monmouth County, NJ
Attic Insulation in Howell, NJ

This is a typical case of a 2 story home where the 2nd floor is uncomfortably hot in the summer, the house is drafty and the energy bills are higher than they should be.

1st-We met with the customer, identified what their concerns are and what they would like to accomplish. 2nd we performed a comprehensive home evaluation, including Infrared camera inspection to locate possible insulation deficiencies, a blower door test, to measure and identify where the house is losing and gaining heat through air leakage, in addition checking for potential health and safety concerns.

A scope of work was developed that met the customer's budget and would accomplish the results they were looking.

The pictures show, Insulation deficiencies, leaky recessed lights, uninsulated ductwork, bath fan not vented correctly, chases, drop down cavity and a gas leak. All having a impact on comfort.

All these items where properly repaired by our fully trained crew, the job was tested at completion to measure our results and the gas leak was repaired.

Results: Reduced excessive air leakage by 73%, bath fan vented properly, ducts repaired and insulated, attic access treated and insulation level increased from an average of R-11 to R-60.

This will drastically improve comfort and reduce energy consumption paying for itself over time.

Solving hot/cold spots and ice damming.

This home was well built in 1961. It is a 2 story on a slab with an attached garage.

We diagnosed what may be contributing to comfort concerns, using a blower door, air leakage detector (smoke) and a Thermal imaging camera. What we found was the the attics where underinsulated, the building was losing a great deal of the heated and cooled air through exceesive air leakage and air ducts in a lower attic where not insulated well and not sealed. 

The customer moved forward with a comprehensive project that included, thorough air sealing, insulating 2 attic flats to R-60, maintaining proper ventilation and sealing and insulating AC ducts in the attic.

The results,  overall airleakage was reduced by 31%. The excessive air leakage was reduced 54%, the customer noticed improved comfort right away. Also reported the house was much quieter.  In addition to the improved comfort, the products we used are safe for humans, reduce dust and improve indoor air quality.  We test in and out on every job to quantify results.

This project qualifed the the NJ Clean energy program, recieved a cash back incentive and long term 0% funding. This project generates more savings annually than the cost the program funding actually paying for itself in energy savings.

Attic Retrofit in Freehold, NJ

During my job site visit to confirm installation details, I (Dave the Owner) met the homeowner Dennis. As we walked through the project he commented that the 2nd floor, which consisted of 3 bedrooms and a bathroom, felt notably better, and the work wasn’t even 100% complete yet. One of the common issues with this type of home, is that the upper level is cold and drafty in the winter and much hotter in the summer. To the point where they typically would install window air conditioners to help. This is a Levitt built home from the 1970’s. This is a two story home on a slab foundation, with one Heating and cooling system located in a garage utility room. The problem is that the home has large under insulated attic flats, vertical walls on the 2nd floor between the unconditioned attic space and the bedrooms, (called knee walls), a large sky light well and the main heating and cooling return duct is 100% in the attic space. The duct is not insulated properly and has many small holes where it pulls in either very hot air in summer, very cold air in the winter and nasty fiberglass particulate every time it runs. The combination of these issues created a uncomfortable home that cost too much to heat and cool year round. These types of issues should be addressed by professionals who understand how buildings work. Improper air sealing or insulation can create ventilation, moisture and combustion appliance problems if not done correctly.

Open Attic Return

This Customer in Middletown, NJ couldn't figure out why there was so much dust in their house!  After calling both an HVAC/R repair company and then a duct cleaning service, they figured their problems would be solved.  But they were wrong!  Neither of those companies found this simple problem...  A WIDE OPEN return duct in the attic!  Just pulling in dust from all the nasty things in the attic including the fiberglass insulation and forcing it through the HVAC/R system!  This will require the installation of a new duct opening and a return grill in the ceiling in the conditioned space below.

Modern Modular Cape Cod House with Cold and Hot Rooms in Manasquan, NJ

This Modern Modular Cape Cod house in Manasquan, NJ, had uncomfortable rooms during the summers and winters.  On the 2nd floor an overhang over the front porch created the room to overheat during the summers and become too cold in the winters.  After inspecting the attic and kneewall spaces we found the Modular Cape Cod house wasn’t air sealed and insulated properly.

This can be a common flaw with Modular Cape Cod Homes because of their prebuilt construction or modularity.  What tend to happen is the seals and gaps of the Cape Cod house never get properly fitted together which creates gaps and air leaks from soffits into poorly insulated kneewall spaces.

To eliminate hot rooms in the summer and cold drafty rooms in the winter, we installed our SilverGlo foam insulation panels over the existing expanding spray foam that’s on the bottom of the rafters in the kneewall spaces.  We also install SilverGlo foam insulation boards to the ceiling joist bays and use Orange ZypFoam to air seal the SilverGlo foam insulation.

Attic Duct Encapsulation and Duct Sealing in Manasquan, NJ

When our crew inspected this Modern Modular Cape Cod house in Manasquan, NJ, we found the homeowners attic ducts were leaking from the seams.  In addition to leaking ducts, we discovered the homeowners exposed ducts were radiating excessive amounts of heat from the attic.

This caused tremendous amount of energy to be wasted during the summers and winters.  Just think about what happens in the winter, blowing heated air through uninsulated ducts located in a frigid attic.  In the summer, you're blowing chilled air through the same uninsulated ductwork that's been heated to about 120 degrees or higher.

To solve the ducts leaky seams our team used Orange ZypFoam to eliminate all air from seeping out of the existing ductwork.  By encapsulating the existing duct work with our SilverGlo foam insulation boards we can reduce the ducts from radiating unwanted heat throughout the house.  To encapsulate the ducts with our SilverGlo foam insulation boards, we frame out the ductwork and install each panel or board over the ductworks outer surfaces.  Finally using the Orange ZypFoam we can seal the seams of the SilverGlo to eliminate any unwanted airflow and/or excessive heat/cold.

Modern Modular Home Poorly Insulated and Air Sealed in Manasquan, NJ

Modern Modular Homes are not created equally.  When inspecting this Modern Modular House in Manasquan, NJ, we found poorly placed insulation throughout the home.  By further inspecting, we found discolored fiberglass insulation.  This is a clear indication that air is circulating through the fiberglass insulation by the open Soffits, cavities, and gaps between the walls and ceilings.

With Modern Modular Homes some open Soffits, cavities and gaps are left unsealed by the manufacturer.  Our team was able to diagnose this issue and eliminate the air from seeping through the fiberglass insulation.

We followed the dirty fiberglass insulation to discover where the gaps and cavities were located.  We simply found the seams and sealed all open seams with our Orange ZypFoam to fully eliminate any air leakage from theses soffits.  Our crew did not have to remove the fiberglass insulation as the insulation was up to code.  The homeowner’s results are the lowering heating and cooling costs.

Dense Packing Uninsulated Exterior Walls in Spring Lake, NJ

Our customer complained their house in Spring Lake, NJ, had cold and drafty rooms. The homeowner stated that their house was too cold during the winters. Also the homeowner suggested during windy conditions the house would become even more uncomfortable.

Many older homes like this 100 year old house were built with no insulation in the exterior walls. Nearly all walls leak air, insulated or not, causing drafts. The cold wall surface cools interior air which then sinks and travels across the floor and up the warmer interior wall, and across the ceiling back to the exterior wall. This is called a “convective loop” and makes rooms feel even draftier.

Our solution must be to eliminate the convective loop by insulating the exterior walls. To accomplish this we must temporarily remove the siding of the house and drill small holes through the wall sheathing. Next we must fasten the fill tube by inserting it up and down into the small hole to dense pack the exterior wall cavities. We use our TruSoft Cellulose insulation to dense pack and insulate the exterior walls. Our Cellulose insulation is environmentally safe and is treated to be highly fire, mold and pest resistant.

Finally, the holes are plugged and the siding is put back on the house exterior walls. The results of insulating the exterior walls are a less drafty, warmer, quieter and a lower fuel/electric bill.
