Spray Foam Insulation Contractor

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation, spray foam insulation is waterproof. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or void to form. Once cured, spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Blown-in & Attic Insulation

Blown-in insulation is often called blow-in or blown insulation, but it doesn’t matter what you call it. What does matter is how well it keeps your home insulated. Many people are under the impression that their attic has enough insulation, however, 9 out of 10 times it does not. In a nationwide study, it was found that the average American attic only has about 1/3 enough insulation to keep the home properly insulated. That is where blown-in insulation comes in. Blown-in insulation is blown into your attic and forms a dense layer that will ensure heat will not escape through the top of your home. Having an attic that is properly insulated can cut heating and cooling costs but up to 20%. What are you waiting for? Call or click today to schedule a FREE blown-in or attic insulation estimate!

Crawl Space Repair Experts

Crawl spaces are frequently neglected by homeowners because they are hidden away under our homes. Ignoring your home’s crawl space seems inconsequential, but disregarding your crawl space can lead to potentially critical problems. The air that flows through your home will eventually pass through your crawl space, taking with it pollen, mold spores, and various contaminants that prosper in the moist, cold, and dirty atmosphere of a vented crawl space.

In addition to leaving you and your family vulnerable to these contaminants, a vented crawl space can also result in expensive drafts that make for chilly temperatures in the higher floors. This issue is worsened by the utilization of fiberglass insulation that can become ineffective and soggy in the moist environment. These issues significantly decrease the energy efficiency of your entire home.

Luckily, The Drying Co./ThermalTec can reconstruct your crawl space so that what once was a hazard to your home becomes a resource. We provide a variety of crawl space solutions, such as:

  • Crawl Space Insulation
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Crawl Space Support Jacks
  • Crawl Space Dehumidifiers
  • And More!

Job Stories From Bruington, VA
Crawl Space Solutions for Improving Energy Efficiency in a Bruington, VA Home

A Bruington, VA homeowner contacted us because they wanted to seal and insulate their home. They had high energy bills and uneven temperatures from room to room.

In the crawl space, we found that there was a radiant barrier installed on the floor joists to try and deflect heat. The idea is the barrier will deflect the heat in the crawlspace during summer months back into the crawl. While in winter months, it will keep heat in the home. The problem is radiant barriers are only effective when they are clean and shiny and have an air space. When installed in a crawl space, the side facing down is dirty and dusty reducing its reflective qualities.

The insulation between the floors joists and the radiant barrier collects moisture and is unable to dry out. The insulation becomes heavy and sags as much as the barrier will allow. Eventually, the saturation and weight will cause the barrier and insulation to fall. The excess moisture combined with warm temperatures allowed mold and mildew to grow on the floor joists. Since air is pulled up into the home from the crawl space, the indoor air quality is impacted.

 

To address the energy and comfort concerns in their home, we made some suggestions for improving the crawl space. We first recommended removing the existing insulation and debris. Then we suggested treating the mold and mildew growth with an antimicrobial.

Next, we would install a heavy-duty vapor barrier sealing it around all piers, to the walls, and at all seams. This will seal the crawl space from the earth’s moisture. We also want to seal any gaps allowing outside air into the crawl space. This includes vents, the rim & band, sill plate, and any utility penetrations.

Then we recommended insulating the crawl space walls with Closed-Cell Spray Foam insulation, leaving a viewing strip at the top of the wall for termite inspections. Insulating from the crawl space walls extends the thermal boundary of the home and reduces the transfer of heat through the foundation walls. In the winter, this means warmer floors for the homeowners, and less outside air being pulled into the home to be conditioned.

The final piece would be to install a dehumidifier to control the relative humidity in the crawl space. Though we have sealed the crawl space from the outside air as much as possible, we still need to regulate the relative humidity, which is the key component to ensuring microbial growth and wood rot do not occur. The unit is designed to only cut on when the relative humidity reaches approximately 55%, we want to keep it below 60%. It removes the excess moisture from the air and circulates dry air throughout the crawl space.

With this solution in their crawl space, they will have warmer floors, reduce the unconditioned outside air being pulled into their home, and improve their indoor air quality. This will help to make the home more comfortable and energy-efficient. It also has the added benefit of protecting the substructure from moisture damage.
