In order to fix ice dam issue Dutchess County we first performed a free home energy audit that will allow us to find the areas of the house they need to be stressed. We use our equipment to depressurize your house and find rooms where you might see the biggest air leakage. Once we collect those results we built a work scope that will map out the process needed to solve your ice dam issue as well as high-energy bills. Upon the completion of the audit you will have this information and if you are handy and are not afraid to get dirty you can fix it yourself. Those jobs are not difficult but it is not easy also.
Our typical procedure is to first performed audits and start at the rooms that were showing us the biggest results. We go up into your attic and lift up the insulation that’s all ready there in order to air seal the holes that were left behind by plumbers and electricians through which air leaks out. We repeat the process throughout the entire attic to make sure that your pressure boundary is restored. That alone will significantly reduce any chances of you getting ice dams. But along with that we add another 10 to 15 inches of loose fill cellulose to really beef up your thermal boundary and make sure that you are not heating your attic space.
