basement

After the attic, the basement is next on the priority list for weatherization. While early basements were used primarily as cellars for food storage, they have now expanded to become living spaces. During the summertime, the basement is typically the coolest area of the house due to a lot of the warmer air rising to the higher levels. This effect, combined with air leakage from the outside, can create a lot of discomfort in the wintertime as well as cause energy bills to be higher than they should be. Furthermore, moisture coming from the outside can infiltrate into the basement and cause mold issues.

How we fix your problem

Our trained weatherization specialists target specific areas such as the band/rim joist, which is where the the foundation meets the side walls, as well as the foundation walls themselves. First, we make sure that the area is properly air-sealed before applying insulation if none already exists there. This will prevent cold air from entering into the house during the wintertime, and conditioned air from leaving it during the summertime. Immediately, drafts will be eliminated and heating and cooling costs will begin to go down.
