Ground level floors may get too cold in the winter if the spaces beneath them are cold. Existing insulation (if there is any) is often inadequate or improperly installed beneath the floorboards. Floor surfaces cool as the heat they contain is sucked away.
Insulating the floors in your home will reduce drafts and help you save each year on energy costs. GSM Services is your local home insulation company, providing our professional floor insulation services to local homeowners throughout Greater Charlotte. Contact us today to get started on living comfortably at home!
When possible, convert the space below your floor to a conditioned (warm) space. For example, by insulating basement or crawl space walls with the proper material, those spaces will become much warmer and so will the floors above them.
When it's not possible to insulate the walls of your basement or crawl space, ask us about insulating the joist bays (spaces between joists) under the floor. We have various types of insulation materials that can do the job, including rigid foam.
Ground level floors aren't the only ones that can get cold. Rooms built above garages are notorious for having cold floors due to lack of insulation, and so is any floor that's cantilevered (overhangs the foundation perimeter).
Balconies, bow and bay windows, and bump-outs are all examples of cantilevered spaces. Their floors are especially prone to air leaks because of ill-fitting soffits (boards used to seal under the overhang) combined with direct exposure to wind. GSM Services has detailed solutions for each and every situation.
