Challenge

A homeowner in Clearbrook, VA wanted to make her kitchen sink area and upstairs floor more comfortable. Her pipes were freezing in the winter and her top floor was too hot in the summer. 

Solution

To make the kitchen area more comfortable, our Comfenergy Production Crew upgraded the 2" x 4" wall insulation with inserted dense-packed TruSoft cellulose insulation by removing siding and drilling the sub-wall, and then reinstalling the siding. 

To make upstairs more comfortable, we removed the existing insulation in the attic, air sealed using expanding polyurethane foam, and then blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to an R value of 60. We also upgraded the existing scuttle.
