Crawl Space Insulation Case Studies: Cold Kitchen Cabinets and Floors-Leesburg, VA

Thursday, January 21st, 2016 by Justin Dobson

Challenge

This Leesburg, VA homeowner was tired of having cold floors on half of the house, and cold kitchen cabinets. Comfenergy performed a full comfort and energy evaluation to find out there were multiple issues creating these cold areas.

Solution

The cold floors were being caused by a crawl space vented to the outside of the home that was unconditioned. The upper kitchen cabinets were very cold due to the bulkhead above them being wide open to the attic above!!!  Holy Cow!  The homeowner decided to fix both of these issues, and also improve the energy efficiency of the home by upgrading the attic insulation and air sealing it.

See how in this case study!
