Transforming your house into an energy-efficient Healthy Home™

If you suspect there may be mold in your house, there isn’t much time to waste. The symptoms of mold in your house reach beyond just damaging your sheetrock and deteriorating the wood in your attic, walls, and basement or crawlspace — mold can affect your health, too!

Unfortunately, mold and moisture tend to go hand-in-hand. If you have moisture or mold issues in your Westchester, Putnam, or Fairfield county home, Healthy Home Energy and Consulting have developed a tried-and-true process of assessing and solving the underlying home performance issues that could be allowing the growth of certain types of mold in your house.

 

Misconceptions About Testing a House for Mold

If you discover mold in your home, the immediate desire is to get rid of it, but remediation can be costly and won't last if the conditions that created the mold in your Westchester County home still exist. Controlling the air leakage and humidity of your home is the solution to preventing mold growth in the future.

Preventing Future Mold Growth

Mold needs three things to flourish in a home: 

  • The right temperature
  • High humidity
  • A food source 

Typical indoor temperatures can be ideal for mold. The higher the humidity, the faster the mold can grow, and that food source could be the drywall and wood that make up your home’s construction.

Solving mold issues comes down to gaining complete control over the humidity in your home, sealing up hidden cracks, leaks, and holes, and then properly ventilating and purifying the air in your home. Healthy Home Energy and Consulting does this by implementing the following upgrades:

  • Air sealing

  • Dehumidification

  • Attic insulation

  • Basement or crawl space encapsulation 

  • Air purification & ventilation
