This home in Potomac, Maryland had moisture in the crawl space which was causing the insulation to sag. The homeowner called Complete Home Solutions to find a solution to their problem.
Our Production Team sealed the crawl space to keep moisture out and put the insulation back in place to keep the floors warm and keep drafts out this winter.
These homeowners had just recently purchased their house in Germantown. As the good homeowners that they are, they had a thorough home inspection done prior to moving in. One of the things that the home inspector noted was the lack of insulation in the crawl space. Such a crawl space can lead to discomfort issues, health problems, and unreasonable utility bills.
The homeowners requested a CHS home comfort specialist come out to their new house and give them the best solutions for their crawl space. What we did for them was to bring their crawl space into the building envelope (preventing unwanted air from leaking into the living space from the crawl). We did this by applying a vapor barrier on the floor and up the walls (sealing along the edges) and applying closed-cell spray foam insulation on the walls. These homeowners are now ready to move into their newly comfortable home!
This homeowner in North Potomac asked us for help with advice on making their home more comfortable and advice on how to keep the home at a more stable temperature. They were interested in having their attic and crawl space assessed. Our energy auditor, Merv, visited the home and discussed solutions with these homeowners. One of the recommendations was to air seal the rim and band joists in the basement area with 3" of closed cell spray foam insulation. As you can see by the pictures, the rim and band joists were not air sealed prior to our work on the home. We sealed and insulated the rim joists which are major sources of heat loss in the home. This will make their home more energy efficient and comfortable and help keep the temperature in the house more even!

This homeowner was really interested in finding ways to make their home more energy efficient (specifically to help lower their utility bills and increase home comfort). They hired Complete Home Solutions to help them achieve this goal.
We took on two primary projects to do this: the attic and the crawlspace. The picture here shows you how we treated the crawlspace. We removed and replaced the old damaged insulation & vapor barrier and air sealed around the walls & vents. This stops that cold, musty air from filtering into the living space, which is an essential part in accomplishing energy efficiency.
This beautiful home in Bethesda, Maryland was suffering from drafty rooms and high utility bills. The homeowner called Complete Home Solutions to see if we could help with their comfort problems.
We came out and performed a Home Energy Audit to try and pinpoint the problem. What we found was that the attic was way under-insulated. So, we took out the old insulation that the was already in the attic that was no longer working efficiently. After that, we were able to install polysio foam board on the knee walls and TruSoft Cellulose insulation all along the attic space, bringing insulation levels to R-49 (which is the recommended BPI standard for our climate zone). After these installations, the home owner no longer suffers from drafty rooms and feels comfortable in their home!
Looking at the picture on the left, we have three main problems with this attic (two you can see, one you can't). One, there's not enough insulation. The yellow BATT insulation (featured on the left) is barely to the top of the floor joists (meaning there should be at least 6" more). Two, there is no air sealing (this you can't see). We need to get underneath the insulation to fix this. Third, the whole house fan is completely out in the open (acting as a major source for unwanted air leakage).
To fix the air leakage, CHS pushed aside the old insulation and caulked any penetrations that were facilitating this issue. To bring insulation up to the BPI recommended standard, we blew in closed cell cellulose insulation. To stop the outdated whole house fan from leaking air, we constructed a 2x4 frame with a hinged top (insulated with 2" of foam board) and installed a string and pulley to allow for easy opening.

He wanted to make sure that his house was going to be energy efficient. He did his research and found a company that had great experience and reviews...Complete Home Solutions.

Our home comfort specialist found that air sealing and insulating the attic would be the most effective way to reach this client's needs. We air sealed any open cavities (that means rim and band joists, ceiling fixture penetrations, top plates, etc) and blew in enough cellulose insulation to bring levels up to R-49. This new homeowner will be moving into a house that is both energy efficient and comfortable.
This homeowner in Takoma Park, Maryland was suffering from terrible cold drafts and ridiculous high energy bills. He knew that winter was coming on fast and that he would need a solution to his problem. He also knew that Complete Home Solutions had a team of experts that was ready to take on this project.
An energy audit lead us to the conclusion that this home's attic was the main perpetrator in the homeowner's discomfort. What could we do to fix that? Well, we air sealed the attic, filled it with some cellulose insulation, and installed a “magnet whole house fan cover.” That last upgrade is what you see here in this “after” picture. The house fan is an important final touch that stops your warm air from leaking out of the vent creases in the winter time (saving you a lot of energy). Thanks to Complete Home Solutions, this homeowner is now living comfortably.
