Are cold floors making it uncomfortable on your feet? When the floor over your garage, balcony, or porch is inadequately sealed, air can leak through various locations, like the structural framing, knee walls, and band joists. With air leaks present, many problems can arise; freezing pipes, chilled duct runs that prevent the HVAC system from functioning properly, and of course cold floors.
Air sealing the floor cavity efficiently is key in deterring air leaks. Eco Insulation will apply spray foam at the band joist area and the subfloor as well as any penetrations in the floor, allowing for complete air and vapour sealing. A floor cavity that is sealed improperly has a considerably reduced R-value and is basically comparable to a floor cavity that has no insulation at all.
