Cold Floors In The Winter
This Commerce Township home had cold floors every winter. Our blower door test and thermal infrared scan revealed significant leakage points at the basement rim joist and fireplace overhang. These spots were only insulated with fiberglass batting which does not stop air movement.
Ecotelligent Homes’ Unique Solution: Spray foam insulation at basement rim joist and fireplace overhang
After removing the fiberglass we used Closed-Cell Spray Foam to insulate the basement rim joist and fireplace overhang. This provides an R-value of 20 and serves as an air barrier. No more breezes on their feet this winter!
