Cold Basement in Boone
Eunice has been a part of our Home Solutions of Iowa family since 2008 when we first installed LeafGuard® Brand Gutters on her home in Boone, Iowa. When she started having trouble keeping the cold air out and the warm are in, we made a special trip to find the cause of the issue.
The rim joists were a large source of energy loss in her home. The rim joists were stuffed with basic fiberglass batt insulation without air sealing, allowing winter air from outside the home to constantly leak in through the wood joints, gaps, and openings for duct, plumbing, and electric wires. Another factor with fiberglass insulation, it loses R-value when it is damp. Midwest basements tend to be naturally damp and have condensation issues.
Spray Foam Insulation
Our solution, air sealing and insulating at the same time with spray foam insulation to diminish air leakage from Eunice’s Boone, Iowa home.
