Jack contacted us because he has dampness in his crawlspace & basement.
Basement & Radon Solutions, BRS Pros did an encapsulation with a dehumidifier. This is how it went…First a 4 suction pipe was installed in the crawl space floor. In the event that Jack’s home is tested for radon in the future and found to be elevate., This component will be used with the additional exterior radon system to correct radon levels.Next a ThermalShield metal foil faced reflective wall liner with a plastic moisture barrier was installed. The wall liner mechanically fastened/sealed to within 6″ of the top of the crawl space foundation wall. ThermalShield is 90 mil thick. Its a class A fire rated with a near zero perm rate. ThermalShield reflects the natural occurring heat generated in the basement & crawlspace away from the foundation walls to provide a much warmer space.Then we Install a Premium 15-mil white 100% woven reinforced radon ready crawl space system. A radon piping system will be installed below the ground liner, the piping system will be used in the future when the home is tested for radon gas and requires a complete radon system. 15-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground. Most crawlspace liners are partially reinforced, our woven liner is 100% reinforced and tough unlike competitive brand liners that are only 10% reinforced. This product will not off gas (known on Google as “crawlspace cat urine odor”, go ahead and check it out), we guarantee it!! Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to our liner. A Aprilaire Dehumidifier has been the industry leader in residential humidification control since 1954. The Aprilaire Model E100 Energy Star rated dehumidifier delivers 23% annual energy savings above conventional products, a high-capacity solution designed for humidity control in crawl spaces and basements. The Model E100 removes up to 95 pints (11 7/8 gallons) of moisture per day! Proudly made in the USA and comes with a five year manufacturer’s parts warranty when installed by BRS Pros, an authorized installer for AprilAire.Lastly we installed a Hygrometer- Remote Temperature and Relative Humidity Meter stand alone unit with one remote sensor. The wireless remote sensor was mounted in the crawl space to give Jack an accurate reading of relative humidity. This product will help him monitor the effective humidity of the dehumidifier in the crawl space.It was a pleasure helping Jack make his home safe, happy, and healthy!”
