This Sterling, VA homeowner had a utility room that backed up to their garage. There was a lot of air leakage allowing cold air to travel through the utility room and into the basement making it cold in the winter.
Thermax foam boards and one part foam was used to seal this air leakage off, and to keep it safe from flammability. Thermax is a fire resistant material.
This Sterling, VA homeowner had a nice storage area beneath the stairwell that is adjacent to their garage. The cold garage air made this room very cold int he winter. Comfenergy used Thermax foam boards and two part foam to air seal it and make it warm to put to better use!
This Sterling, VA homeowner called us out to lower his energy bills, but we couldn't get into the attic because there was no access. We cut the drywall and created a new access with trim.
Once we created an attic access in this homeowner's home, we found two bathroom attic fans that were exhausting into the attic. In the wintertime, this hot humid air, blowing into a cold attic will create condensation and possibly mold on organic material. We took action and vented them outside of the house through the gable.
Cold floors in rooms above garages are typically caused by air gaps between the sub-flooring above and the fiberglass batt insulation below. Any time insulation does NOT touch the surface you are trying to keep warm or cool...it will NOT work!
See how big the gap between the floor and the insulation is in this Sterling Virginian Home WOW!!!! This might have been the worst we have ever seen...Might be 2-3 feet of a gap!
Our team spray foamed the gaps to ensure no air leakage. These floors are now much more comfortable!
