Clean Attic Storage and New Insulation for this Bethel Park, PA Home Owner Clean Attic Storage and New Insulation for this Bethel Park, PA Home Owner

High energy bills and a need for clean storage lead this Bethel Park, PA customer to Home Environment Solutions.  After doing a free full home energy audit, HES discovered insufficient and deteriorating fiberglass insulation in the attic.  This is no surprise,  the North American Insulation Manufacturer Association (NAIMA) says that 90% of all single family homes are under insulated.  

HES cleaned out the old deteriorating insulation, air sealed, and insulated using Tru-Soft Cellulose Insulation. Particle board was used to dam the insulation and create clean storage for this customer.  

Not only can the customer store all of their belongings safely, but they will be saving on their energy bills, too!

Job Stories From Allegheny County, PA
The Trouble With Cantilevered Homes

Cantilevered homes have one floor that extends beyond the foundation to hang over an open space. It's also one of the usual suspects when there's a comfort issue in the home. In the winter time cold air can leak into your overhang and take up residency in your floor cavity. Its not uncommon for us to find little or no insulation in these cavities.  To fix this we need to stop the air infiltration to keep the cold air from traveling through the joist cavities.

Mold blocking a home sale in Coraopolis, PA

We received a call from Penny who was selling her house.  The buyers home inspector found mold in the attic and the purchase was on hold until the attic was properly remediated.  Our Certified mold remediation team quickly and properly removed the mold in the attic.  The sale was now ready to close and Penny was one happy customer!

 

Replacing insulation in a Brackenridge, PA home

Carolyn found us online and called in for an estimate.  We were the 5th insulation company she interview.  Carolyn had a cape cod style house with living space in the attic.  They had been living there for 50 years and the upstairs was freezing in the winter and baking hot in the summer.  Carolyn also complained about the road noise from the busy street in front of their home.  

We proposed installing sound reducing insulation in her knee walls and attic as well as increasing her very inadequate insulation in her attic to R60.

The end result was an amazed customer on how much more comfortable her home was and she was completely blown away on how quiet it was.  She said that she has been uncomfortable in her home for the last 50 years and she couldn’t be more pleased with the comfort and sound level.

Crawlspace Issues Plague a Home in Sewickley, PA

Crawlspace Issues Plague a Home in Sewickley, PA

Something didn’t quite smell right at Amy T.’s home, and on top of that she was suffering with some cold floors. So, she decided to call the home comfort specialist at Home Environment Solutions. Mark arrived at Amy’s home to provide a free evaluation and estimate.

After hearing about the problems Amy was having, Mark took a look at the crawlspace of the home. That is where he discovered the problems causing the musty smell and cold floors in Amy’s home. Mark then crafted a plan to solve the problems and handed it off to the production crew.

First, the crew needed to remove the fiberglass insulation that was in the crawlspace.  Most of it was either sagging or had fallen down completely. Then they needed to clean dirt and construction debris that was on the crawl space floor.

Then it was time to seal the duct joints in the crawl space. This makes sure that the conditioned air wasn’t escaping. That was followed by air sealing and insulating the rim joist with spray foam insulation. The exterior block walls were then air sealed and insulated using SilverGlo insulation board. The production crew then installed a CleanSpace Encapsulation liner on the floor of the crawlspace.

The last step with the crawlspace encapsulation was to install a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. This will make sure the moisture in the air stays down and to help with the musty smell Amy was having.

With all of this complete Amy was happy to report that all of her issues with her home, had disappeared. There was no more musty smell or cold floors.  Amy now had a healthier, more comfortable and efficient home.

Mold - Glenshaw - PA

The homeowners recently purchased this home which was vacant for a long period of time.  They were referred to Home Environment Solutions by both their realtor and home inspector.  The basement was completely finished and had extensive mold and water damage throughout.

Mark, a nationally certified mold remediation expert, came out to inspect and propose a solution to remove the mold.  All of the mold damaged drywall in the basement needed to be removed and most of the nonstructural framing.  This fit the home owners’ plans because they wanted to completely remodel the space anyway. 

The certified mold remediation team consisted of Dave, Dalton and Cameron.  Their box truck is designed with specialized mold remediation equipment.  The team began their project by building barriers between the work area and the other living areas so not to spread the mold to the unaffected parts of the home.  Large HEPA air scrubbers and negative air machines were set up to capture any airborne mold spores and dust as the project progressed.  The building materials were carefully removed and hauled away to the landfill by our team.  The entire basement was HEPA cleaned and disinfected leaving what is probably the cleanest basement in the area.  The home owners were astounded at the results saying, “the most important part for me is the peace of mind and confidence that comes from knowing the job was done correctly!”

Cold Kitchen Floors and Uneven Temperatures in Pittsburgh PA

Justin found us at the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show and couldnt wait to talk to us. He had a few issues that he brought to our attention; cold floors in his kitchen (above the crawlspace) and a broken pipe in the crawlspace which had a dirt floor.  His colonial home was built in 1935 and he said he had a hard time heating and cooling the upstairs area and his furnace and air conditioner ran non stop.

Russ, the Home Environment Solutions representative went to Justin's home to evaluate the situation  He explained to the homeowner the reason for the uneven temperatures in his home was because he had an R19 value of fiberglass in his attic and there were gaps in the floor causing the air to leak out.  Justin decided to schedule our production team, Zach, Cameron, and JJ to come out and resolve all of his issues. 

The team started with the attic and removed all of the old fiberglass and air sealed all penetrations in the attic floor.  They insulated with TruSoft blown in cellulose to an average of R60, installed a dam around the scuttle hole and and insulated using SilverGlo, weather stripping and OSB.  To finalize the attic, we installed a TruSoft baffle system which meets EnergyStar requirements.  Zach, Cam and JJ then started workin on the crawlspace and air sealed and insulate the rim joist with spray foam.  The encapsulated the dirt floor with CleanSpace and attached it to the SilverGlo insulation board that was installed on all of the exterior walls.

The homeowner was excited about the difference he noticed in his home in a matter of 24 hours.  He said for the first time since living there, he and his wife were able to walk across the kitchen floor without socks or slippers.  He was also impressed that he no longer had a drastic change in temperature from his downstairs to upstairs.  It was the same throughout.

Allison Park, PA Cold Cape Cod

Rose M. was tired her cold upstairs rooms and closets in her cape cod home.  She didnt think much could be done because her home was just built in 2014, so it wasnt very old.  She said that everything including her insulation was up to code.  Rose started searching the internet and found Home Environment Solutions during a search for "cold rooms upstairs".  She decided to give us a call and set up an appointment but had little hope that her home would be comfortable.

When Rose called the office, she spoke with Christie, the office Manager.  Christie took the time to listen to all of Rose's concerns and put her mind at ease letting her know who was coming to her home, our contact information, and what type of car we would be driving.

Russell, our insulation expert, went to the appointment and found multiple areas in her attic that were losing valuable heat which was causing her comfort issues and elevating her energy bills.  Some of the key factors were air gaps in her recessed lighting, duct work, and attic floor.

Our production team lead by Zach and Cameron went to work installing SilverGlo on her knee walls, dense packing the roof, adding more TruSoft Cellulose insulation, TiteShell recessed light fixture covers, and encapsulating her ducts with Tight N' True spray foam.

The difference in Rose's home was felt immediately and she was happy to see her energy bills had lowered as well.

Allison Park, Pa. Cape Cod Style over garage

Rose found Home Environment Solutions from a google search.  She and her husband had issues with the way their home was built and the lack of insulation in the master closet that was built over the garage.  She also had comfort issues in the area of her mud room and laundry room on the first floor.  Their home was newly built and the master closet was ice cold in the winter and she was tried of dealing with the cold.

 

Russell, our Home Comfort Specialist, arrived at Rose's home and performed an indepth home evaluation to determine how to best meet their needs.  Russell found that the attic (over the garage) had fiberglass bats in the knee wall, the cathedral spaces and no insualtion under the floor of the closet.  It was also found that none of the area were air sealed between conditioned space and unconditioned space.  Russell explained the showed Rose the areas of issue with a thermal camera and walked her through the process of properly insulating her master closet and mud room area.

 

The production crew of Zack, Cameron and Derek arrived to Rose's home and set out traps to protect her home.  Zack went over the contract and walked Rose through the project.  The crew air sealed the attic floor, installed SilverGlo high density foam board on the knee walls and insulated the attic to an R-60.  They installed insulated scuttle covers and spray foamed the duct work that was in the attic.  The crew did an excellent job and the customer was very satisfied with our work.

Traditional attic Pittsburgh, Pa

Patrick and Cathy had recently moved to the Pittsburgh area about 1 year ago.  They had noticed a temperature difference as they walked up their steps to the second floor. They said the temperature difference was 6-8 degree difference.  They were not happy with this difference and wanted to find out if this could be fixed.  Upon reading our reviews, Patrick decided to contact Home Environment Solutions.

 

Russell, our Home Comfort Specialist, met with Patrick and Cathy at their home.  Russell asked several questions (to determine what they wanted to accomplish) and did a walk through of the home.  Russell did a more indepth inspection using a thermal camera and entered the attic to evaluate the existing insulation.  The inspection revealed that the attic had some blown in fiberglass and some fiberglass bats.  Russell also found that the attic floor was not air sealed which was allowing heat to entered into the attic.  When heat enters the attic and hits a cold roof, it causes condensation and on a really cold day, frost will form on the tips of the nails.  The evidence of this happening is the drip marks (water marks) on the insulation and the plywood decking.  Following Russell's inspection, he prepared a formal proposal presented it to Patrick and Cathy.  They decided to move forward immediately.

 

The production crew (Cameron, Zack and Derek) arrived at their home and began tarping the area to protect the customer's home.  The crew removed the fiberglass insulation with a truck mounted vacuum.  Any fiberglass bats were bagged up in the attic and removed from the property.  They also air sealed the attic floor and built an insulated storage deck.  The crew re-insulated the attic with TruSoft Cellulose R-60 (17").  

 

Patrick and Cathy were extremely satisfied with the crew and the work completed at their home.

Cape Cod attic Pittsburgh Pa

David had a home energy audit performed by CCI, Pittsburgh Pa.  CCI provided David with a detailed report for the inspection of his home.  CCI also recommended Home Environment Solutions to David to complete the work.  

 

Russell, our Home Comfort Specialist, met with David and went over the CCi report and also completed his own home evaluation.  Russell met David's needs for home comfort and energy efficiency. Russell agreed with most of CCI's recommendations and provided David with a proposal.

 

The production crew of Zack, Cameron and Brandon arrived at the home and set up tarps to protect the home.  The crew air sealed and insulated the knee wall spaces, dense packed the cathedral ceiling and air sealed and insulated the top of the home.  The crew also spray foamed the rim joist in the basement. The crew also attached weather stripping along the exterior doors of the home as requested by David.

 

The crew did a wonderful job at David’s home and met his needs as assessed by CCI and Russell.  A great job!
