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.

Don't Worry & Don't Hesitate
"I am about a few weeks out of my exterior wall insulation, attic spray foam and garage insulation. I feel the big difference in my home. My home is warmer and holds the heat. Tom was very straight forward and upfront. He was my point person for the three day project. He was exceptional. From the initial quote to project completion. After the completion of the insulation, I experienced a strong and significant spray foam smell coming through my bathroom AC flex duct. Tom asked Mike, his operation manager, to come out and check it out the next day. There turn out to be a large hole in my duct. And he fixed it without hesitation. Plus he accidentally broke a spong holder and gave me money for it. I was very please to report the smell instantly disappeared. Also the back office Lindsay and Jeanine who helped me with the the paperwork was phenomenal. Very impressed with the efficiency and diligence. Overall, cannot recommend enough. Don't worry and don't hesitate."
