This homeowner from Mount Rainier, Maryland noticed that his master bedroom was always freezing cold, especially the floors. He needed advice on how to change this. So, he called up Complete Home Solutions.
After an energy audit, we determined that there was a crawl space beneath the master bedroom that was causing it to be so cold. The walls had some insulation in them, but it was not actually blocking any air movement. In order to do that, we needed to install spray foam over the walls. Doing this has created a much more comfortable and energy efficient home!
This client had heard a radio ad discussing the great benefits that an energy efficient home can have for its homeowner. Thinking about how his home was probably under-performing (based on his utility bills and lack of insulation in his attic), he did a little research. He found Complete Home Solutions and, after viewing our extensive experience, chose us as to make his home more efficient.
After performing a home energy audit, our home comfort specialist found quite a few opportunities for improvement (the attic being the main one). This home had a flue pipe that went through the attic; it wasn't properly sealed and was, therefore, causing a lot of air leakage (decreasing the efficiency of the home). We sealed the pipe and constructed a non-flammable barrier around it to prevent insulation contact. We also air sealed along all the rim and band joists in the attic and replaced the old, gunky insulation with fresh cellulose. Now this home is efficient and comfortable for the homeowner too!
Insufficient attic insulation leads to a lack of energy efficiency in a home. Homes like this one in Brentwood, Maryland struggle with keeping air that is inside the home from escaping and outside air from seeping into the home. By removing the existing insulation and replacing it with blown-in cellulose insulation, we made the home more energy efficient by keeping the air inside the home and not escaping to the outside.

Crawl spaces tend to soak up the natural cold or heat around your home and transfers it into the air in your crawl space. This will cause your energy bills to rise and your home’s comfort to decrease. If you have utilities in your crawl space such as your water heater, furnace, or hot water pipes, your energy bills will suffer even more. The fluctuation in temperature will force your heating and air conditioning systems to work harder, causing your energy costs to rise. For your crawl space insulation to perform like it should, it's essential to install the right type of crawl space insulation, the right amount of crawl space insulation, and use the correct installation technique. At Complete Home Solutions we can improve the condition of your crawl space with products that are durable, long-lasting, and made especially for the crawl space environment!

This customer of ours had a few issues going on in his crawl space that he already knew about - his insulation was falling out and his ductwork was uninsulated in his crawl. As he was thinking about who he should call to help him with his problem, he saw one of Complete Home Solutions' trucks on the road. He immediately got out his phone and gave us a call to check out his crawl space.
When we got there, we found that falling insulation wasn't this homeowner's only problem. This crawl space needed a serious touch up. The first thing that we did was to remove the old insulation. We then replaced it with 3" of closed cell spray foam in the rim and band joist area. We then sealed the foundation vent using polysio foam board and spray. We also added a drainage matt across the dirt floor area in the crawl and then a 20 mil vapor barrier. Last, but certainly not least, we insulated the duct work with 1" of spray foam.
After it was all said and done, we had a very happy customer on our hands. His crawl space was transformed into one that was saving him money in utility bills and keeping him warm in the winter.
This customer was having a really hard time in the middle of the summer. She had little kids and pets that stayed home with her and they were just miserably HOT! She tried to get the AC up, but her system seemed to be struggling and just couldn't get the house cool enough. She got a quote for a new HVAC system, but was afraid that just replacing her system wouldn't fix the real issue. The HVAC company that she was going to use referred her over to Complete Home Solutions to find a whole house solution for her heat problem.
After performing a whole house analysis, we found that a major reason that this house wouldn't stay cool was because the attic was untreated. We explained to the homeowner that replacing her HVAC system would help a little bit, but unless she also treated her attic, she would be wasting a lot of money and not accomplishing much. So she let us go ahead and show her what we meant. We did a lot of air sealing in the attic, using spray foam and foam board on the knee walls and caulk on the penetrations throughout the attic, and a combination of both methods for insulating the rim and band joists. After air sealing, we installed blown cellulose insulation to complete what we call a "thermal barrier."
This homeowner was completely relieved by the difference our work made for her and her kids. Our work married with the new HVAC system she had put it in so that it didn't have to work as hard and her house still stayed nice and cool throughout the summer.
This couple had an addition put onto their house a few years ago. When they put the addition in, they consequently created a new crawl space underneath their house. The problem with this is that they never had that crawl space insulated. This means that there was nothing stopping cold air from flowing into the house in the winter and musty, dirty air from flowing into the house in the summer. Understandably so, they wanted to get their addition taken care of once and for all, so they called up Complete Home Solutions.
We were more than happy to come out and provide these homeowners with the specific solutions for their home's needs. To make sure that this couple could enjoy their home's addition all year round, we made a few much needed improvements. We needed to air seal the space, which meant using spray foam to seal up rim and band joists and any penetrations. We had to add some extra insulation to the ceiling of the crawl space (where it connects to the living space floors). We also had to install a vapor barrier, which stops unwanted moisture from traveling up into your house.
We were ultimately able to create a more comfortable space for this couple to use and they are in love! We won them over with our professional and pleasant attitude and delivered a quality of work that gave them confidence that they had made the right choice!
This homeowner and his wife had recently dealt with a substantial vermin problem. Mice were getting into the crawl space and breeding like crazy. They got their pests taken care of, but wanted to make sure that the same problem couldn't happen again. They knew that they had to do something about their crawl space, and decided to improve their home comfort as well. While searching for a company who could do both, they found Complete Home Solutions and decided to give us a call.
After taking a trip out to their house and speaking with the homeowners, we found that the best solutions for them was to encapsulate the crawl space. This involved installing a dimpled drainage matting and vapor barrier to the crawl floor. We then applied Air Sealing to crawl space walls, vents, and rim & band joists with spray foam insulation. In addition to all that we also treated the crawl space hatch with foam board and caulk.
After finishing all of work, our homeowners can rest assured that they will no longer be having any vermin sneaking into their crawl space. They can now enjoy a healthier, more comfortable home. We are so happy to have been able to help these great people with their home!
This homeowner has been living in his house for the past 21 years. Over the past few years, his energy bills have been steadily going up. He is retired and on a fixed income, so this was not a problem that he could continue to afford. Lucky for him, he found an ad for one of our home energy audits and called us up right away!
With this energy audit we were able to pinpoint the areas of the house that were costing this customer an increase in his energy bill month after month. The attic and the crawl space needed to be updated to stop them from leaking so much air! In the attic we needed to do some air sealing (around attic penetrations, top plates, recessed light fixtures, etc) largely using caulk and spray foam. We also needed to blow in 8" of TruSoft cellulose insulation. In the crawl space, we needed to air seal again, this time the rim and band joists, penetrations, and foundation vents. We also installed a vapor barrier and an EverLast crawl space access door.
All of this was done to ensure that the conditioned air that our customer was paying to have heat/cool his home was actually staying where he wanted it to be. Thanks to these improvements, he now has an affordable energy bill and a comfortable home on top of it!
These homeowners have had the same problem with their house for the past 7 years.The upstairs and the downstairs have always had different temperatures. In the winter, the downstairs was freezing while the upstairs was warm and in the summer, the downstairs was cool while the upstairs was blazing.
This had always annoyed them, but they got the final push to do something about it when they realized they would be having a baby.
Wanting to make their home comfortable and healthy for the new baby, the parents-to-be called up Complete Home Solutions. We sent one of our home comfort experts to perform an energy audit and come up with some solutions for this family's comfort issues. He found two main areas that could really use some improvement.
The attic and the attached garage were leaking a lot of air, which was creating that temperature difference between the upstairs and downstairs. This was an easy fix for Complete Home Solutions. In the attic, we insulated the exposed knee walls, air sealed the skylight area, air sealed any attic penetrations we found, and installed blown in cellulose insulation. In the garage, we insulated the wall, attaching it to the living space by dense packing cellulose insulation using the drill and fill method.
This couple can now focus on welcoming the new addition to their family rather than worrying about their home's comfort (or in this case, lack there of).
Brian in Temple Hills, MD had a home that was not keeping him as comfortable as it once did. He made the right choice and called Complete Home Solutions for one of our home Energy Audits. Following the completion of the Energy Audit our Home Comfort Specialist had several recommendations one how to make Brain's home more comfortable and much more efficient. The first recommendation was to upgrade the very thin layer of cellulose insulation in his attic with a new layer of cellulose insulation. Along with the new cellulose insulation, our specialist suggested a duct encapsulation to the metal A/C ducts in his attic, during this process our home comfort technicians spray all the metal duct work in the attic with spray foam, this keeps the duct work from sweating from the moisture and humility that can be trapped in your attic.
Following his homes improvements Brian is now resting in comfort, while also noticing a improvement to the cost of his monthly energy bill.

Sharon's, single story home in Bladensburg, MD was becoming harder to keep comfortable, especially in the cold winter months. Following the recommendation of a neighbor, Sharon called Complete Home Solutions to assess the problem.

Daryl called Complete Home Solutions to see what steps could be taken to improve the efficiency and comfort in his home, following a recommendation from a neighbor who had recently received a Home Energy Audit and made energy-efficient upgrades to their home. Our Home Comfort Specialist conducted a Home Energy Audit. One recommendation made was to replace the homes aging heat pump, which was not producing the air and heat that was needed to control the homes temperature comfortably or efficiently. This improvement was also much cheaper thanks to rebates from the homeowner's utility company for upgrading to a system that would take much less energy to run.

Lauren's home in Mount Rainier, MD had a carport under the back of her home with a portion of the house above. Behind the cantilever was a lack of insulation that caused extremely cold floor temperatures in the home's bathroom, and in extreme temperatures, her pipes to freeze. Following a visit from one of our Home Comfort Specialist, the recommendation was to remove the old batt insulation and use our 2 part closed cell spray foam to create an air tight insulated area underneath this section of her home. On the day of the job, our Home Comfort Technicians sprayed 3 inches of spray foam to the cantilever which now properly insulates the area and prevents the pipes from freezing in the winter. Lauren noticed an immediate difference in the floor temperature in her home and could not be happier.

Muriel had previously used Complete Home Solutions to tune up her heat pump. During the tune-up, our HVAC Technician informed her about other services we offered Including our Home Energy Audit, which analyzes the home and certain systems within it to determine ways to cut down on energy usage and your monthly utility bill.

With an in-house plumbing department, our specialist was able to recommend several different types of water heaters and within 1 week our crew was out to install them. The replacement not only fixed the issue of the aging hot water heater but also helped make Muriel's home more efficient. She chose an energy-efficient heat pump water heater that uses air to heat the water rather than electric coils.

Kiara's hot water heater had reached the end of its functioning life when she called Complete Home Solutions for a replacement. during the estimate, Kiara was expecting an option for a traditional electric water heater, until one of our Home Comfort Specialist gave her information on a heat pump water heater. A heat pump water heater uses a fan mixed with the air around your tank to heat the water, rather than the traditional electric coils used to heat the water. While the price was a little higher upfront, Kiara decided to make an investment in the efficiency of her home and go with the heat pump water heater. Our plumbing department was able to install the new unit just a few days later and after a few months, Kiara noticed a steady decline in her utility bill month over month.

Sean's Hyattsville, MD home was experiencing humidity issues throughout the first floor in the summer and cold temperatures in the winter months. Following a call to Complete Home Solutions, our Home Comfort Specialist recommended a full crawl space encapsulation to address these problems. On the day of the project, Our Home Comfort Technicians began by removing all of the old batt insulation from the crawl space that had moisture damage. The next step was to lay down our CleanSpace vapor barrier which when bolted to the wall of your crawl space keeps moisture, pests, and critters out of your crawl space. Next, they spray foamed the concrete walls of the crawl space with a 2-part closed cell spray foam, which creates a solid barrier restricting air penetrations around the external walls of the crawl, as well as fully insulating the area. The final step of the encapsulation was to install an Aprilaire dehumidifier which regulated the humidity to a consistently comfortable 50-55% humidity.
Sean noticed an immediate difference, and can't wait to see the difference in comfort for years to come
