Hi, my name is Dave! I joined Complete Home Solutions in the Fall of 2017. Before that, I worked as a production lead in the construction industry. My skill level and industry knowledge are an asset to our home comfort team. My work ethic and great attention to detail make me a natural fit with my team members. I truly enjoy helping homeowners solve their home comfort issues!
In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with friends and spending time with my young son.
This homeowner contacted Complete Home Solutions, because they had contaminated insulation from pests/rodents. They were also experiencing extreme temperature variations between their upstairs and downstairs levels in their home. When we arrived, we found the attic was insulated with loose fiberglass insulation which was contaminated by debris, particulate matter, and mouse feces. So not only was this homeowner uncomfortable, since the attic was not properly air sealed, they were also breathing the unhealthy air that was coming down into the house from their contaminated attic insulation. Often loose fiberglass insulation has voids or gaps between that allow your insulation to lose it's effectiveness or R-value. Loose fiberglass inuslation alos creates a warm habitat for rodent infestation and unwanted critters. Cellulose insulation provides a more natural insulation barrier and is treated to deter unwanted pests infestation. We removed the loose, contaminated insulation, air sealed to the attic area to stop the air flow and installed a fresh blanket of blown cellulose insulation to ensure the heated and cooled air from inside stayed in!
The homeowner is now much happier, healthier and more comfortable!
This homeowner was experiencing drafts and hot spots in their home in the spring. They also previously had insulation within the attic. Our Home Comfort Specialist went out to do some infrared imaging and a blower door test, which helps to see where the problem areas are within the home. Our Home Comfort Specialist then recommended blown-in cellulose insulation compared to the loose fill fiberglass that was currently in their attic. cellulose insulation is not only environmentally friendlier than fiberglass insulation it also deters pest and does not support any fungal growth if moisture ever gets into your attic. Cellulose insulation also reduces air flow resulting in warmer rooms in the winter and cooler rooms in the summer.
The homeowner is now experiencing fewer drafts, less hot spots, and is even saving money on their utility bill! The homeowner is so much more comfortable and so happy with the work Complete Home Solutions did on their home!
This attic had no insulation to shield the home form environmental factors making the interior drafty and uncomfortable. The floored attic space was great for storage, but the insufficient insulation levels were causing significant heat loss. Essentially the heat they were paying for was rising straight up and out of the house, making them very Uncomfortable. The homeowner decided that enough was enough and contacted Complete Home Solutions to look for a solution.
We recommended removing the storage platform. Storing items in uncontrolled spaces is never a good idea. They often become damaged or warm from the uncontrolled temperatures. Blown cellulose insulation was decided to be the best fit for this attic providing it with a strong thermal barrier.
The homeowner now has a more efficient and comfortable home while saving on the cost of their utility bill.
