Serving Greater Hudson Valley, Newburgh, Middletown, Poughkeepsie
The homeowner was struggling with high utility bills for her home and barn, which were built in the late 1930s or early 1940s. The thermal envelope was inefficient, causing heat loss and high energy consumption.
Upon inspection of the homeowner's properties, our team discovered a major issue. Both her home and barn were losing significant amounts of energy due to their stone walls and rim joists lacking insulation altogether. This created an open thermal envelope, allowing cold air to flow from downstairs to upstairs, making the living space uncomfortable and causing high energy bills.
To resolve this issue, Foamco took a comprehensive approach. Firstly, we protected the mechanicals in the homeowner's basement and prepared the area for spray foam insulation. We then applied two inches of closed-cell spray foam to the interior of the stone foundation walls, followed by three inches of closed-cell spray foam to their rim joists. This meticulous approach enabled us to fully seal the thermal envelope of the home, preventing any further energy loss.
The results of the project were truly remarkable. The homeowner noticed a significant improvement in the comfort level of their home, with stable indoor temperatures and no more drafts or cold spots. The most impressive benefit, however, was the dramatic drop in their utility bills.
Thanks to the comprehensive insulation solution provided by Foamco, the homeowner now enjoys improved air quality and a more energy-efficient living environment. They are thrilled with the outcome of the project and wish they had completed it years ago. At Foamco, we take pride in delivering solutions that provide both immediate and long-term benefits to our clients.
