This homeowner was experiencing cold floors in her Edgewater, MD home and decided it was time to resolve the issue! After getting in contact with us, we sent our Home Comfort Specialist, Jonathan, to get the ball rolling on the project. While there, Jonathan went and investigated the crawl and recommended that they get a full crawlspace encapsulation to make the crawl a conditioned space and help with the cold air rising from their crawlspace. The next step was getting our Home Comfort Technicians into the crawl and begin working. They started with removing the old batt insulation as it will no longer be needed by the time we finish the job. Then, the crew added a vapor barrier to keep the moisture from the ground outside of the homeowner's crawl. The next step was to install a brand-new dehumidifier to maintain a 50% humidity level. The final step was to install spray foam on the walls of the crawlspace with 2 inches of foam on the walls and 3 inches of foam on the rim joist and band board.
The homeowner immediately felt a difference and loved the outcome!
