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!
This homeowner was finishing their basement and wanted to make sure that during the construction process he did something to better control the humidity in his basement.
Closed cell spray foam was the answer that Comfenergy provided.
This home in Haymarket, Virginia has a unique architecture for the area and the turrets you see ont he front of the house were too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
Comfenergy used spray foam to fix the problem.
This sunroom in Fairfax, VA was very uncomfortable. Our team spray foamed the ceiling to make this room much more comfortable and energy efficient!
This Falls Church homeowner called up because she had cold floors and musty smell coming from the crawl space. We insulated the walls with spray foam and put down a vapor barrier, allowing for the upstairs to be more comfortable.
This Arlington, VA homeowner was remodeling their home and wanted to use spray foam for their basement. Comfenergy recommended a closed cell spray foam without a thermal barrier for this project. This type of spray foam was used for its ability to be a vapor barrier. Also, the spray foam was being covered up by drywall, so there was no need for a thermal barrier.
This Catlett, VA homeowner was having issues with their master bedroom being hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Upon an evaluation by Comfenergy, we found one of the walls of the master bedroom were adjacent to the attic above the garage. The only insulation providing a thermal barrier between this wall and the hot/cold attic on the other side, was falling fiberglass insulation.
Even if fiberglass were in place on this wall it still would not stop air movement and heat transfer through it. Fiberglass is ONLY effective if it is sandwiched on all sides by an air barrier.
Comfenergy used 2" thick SilverGlo EPS foam boards to build an additional R10 of thermal barrier along the back side of this wall. More importantly it creates an air barrier for the fiberglass and makes it effective!
Now this customer has a total of R23 on this wall and its air tight! Comfort at its best!
A home owner in Prince William County, VA wanted to make his home more energy efficient. One of the ways that we helped them do this was by converting the attic into an extension of conditioned space. We did this by installing an average of 3 inch thick closed cell spray foam on the roof and the end walls. This creates a super insulated airtight cap on the top of your home to stop air from leaking out. Closed cell spray foam insulation has a leading R-value of R6.5 per inch and adds to the structural integrity of your roof. Converting this attic resulted in lower fuel and energy bills.
