Humidity Reduction Tips:

  • Use a Dehumidifier – Dehumidifiers are a great way to remove moisture from the air, especially in basements during the summer months.
  • Cook Carefully – Cook by using covered pots rather than letting the boiling water evaporate into the air.  You can also use an exhaust fan to help remove the humidity from the air after cooking.
  • Take Shorter Showers – Taking shower showers will help keep moisture out of the air. You can also open a window or turn on your exhaust fan after a hot shower to remove humidity from the air.
  • Update Your Home Insulation – Home insulation helps keep warm, humid summer air out of your home and cool conditioned air indoors.  By preventing air exchange, you can keep your home cool.

Solutions for Every Spot
"Chris from Good Life helped my wife and I understand our home's problem areas and had a solution for every cold spot. His recommendations and industry knowledge go unmatched- from available rebates to special needs such as creating an insulated but still useable storage space in attic. I'd recommend Good Life Energy Savers to anyone!"

Could Not Be Beat
"I was impressed from the start with Tom the sales rep. He took detailed measurements to accurately determine the volume of foam necessary for the job. And his quote detailed the full scope of work. Other estimates were higher and did not include the site prep to protect my windows and floor. I would have had to do that myself! I got three other estimates and Good Life Energy Savers just could not be beat. When I decided to change the application from the interior of my cathedral ceiling to the exterior on my roof in order to preserve my tongue & groove ceiling Mike project mgr. came out and reassured me that they could execute this without a problem. This was a huge relief as I had been trying to solve the problem of heat loss for many years. Juan and David performed outstandingly! They were conscience during the installation and the clean up afterward.They literally went above and beyond! The room is now easily holding a consistent temperature and I could not be happier. I should have done this years ago!"
