Cantilevers can be problematic if poorly insulated like the one shown here but typically if its out of sight, its out of mind. That is why we opened up the cantilevers to reveal minimal insulation and lots of gaps making it clear how much this Carmel home is losing air they paid to heat/cool their home and gaining air from the outside. Just look at all those gaps in the before photo! Now look at the after photo, not much air getting through that! Indiana Home Comfort Solutions provided this home with a solution that works. By installing SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation panels then sealing them air tight with expanding spray foam insulation the cantilevers will no longer cause the homeowners problems.
In Indianapolis, IN, Indiana Home Comfort Solutions removed the soffit from the cantilever in order to properly insulate the area. Instead of finding any insulation, they found a nasy hornet nest! After safely removing the nest, the team was able to seal the cavity air tight and provide the home with proper insulation.
Unhappy with their high utility bills, this Indianapolis family called Indiana Home Comfort Solutions to provide them with a solution. It was discovered that they had a lot of air flow coming from the Cantilevers on the porch. That area was not insulated, allowing air to flow in and out of the home easily. The cantilevers were insulated by installing blocks of SilverGlo foam boards then covered with expanding spray foam insulation to properly seal the area and stop air flow.
This Indianapolis crawl space access had a makeover after having a complete home inspection performed by Indiana Home Comfort Soluitons. The inspection found a good amount of air in the home was leaking through the crawlspace. The solution included two parts, air sealing the crawl space and replacing the exterior access point.
After having various companies come out and inspect their duct work, the L. Family's "Dust Issues" were still persistent. They did not want to complete any work unless they knew it was going to solve their problem so in the mean time they used duct tape to seal the ductwork. Turns out we were able to determine that their dust problem was due to air leakage pulling insulation from the attic into the home. Now that the root of the problem had been determined, these Clermont homeowners felt comfortable with moving forward. Indiana Home Comfort Solutions was able to Properly Air Seal their ductwork!
