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.

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!
The T. family of Zionsville loved using their basement to work together on various projects, such as building and assembling trains. However, the spacious area was drafty, cold, and poorly lit making it difficult to enjoy their favorite passtime. Indiana Home Comfort Solutions replaced their old basement window and window well to resolve the issue. The L. family were pleased with the solution and were happy to receive a window that allowed more sun light to come through while still sufficiently blocking air flow.

Look at the before photo. It might not look like much until you realize that what you are seeing a dryer vent. Thats right. Our IHCS team members discovered a dryer vent that opens up into the crawlspace in this home in Pittsboro, IN. The release of air into a crawlspace can cause too much moisture and lead to mold! The problem was fixed and now this dryer vent not only looks much better than before but it also wont be causing anymore issues.
Just look at all of the space around that chimney pipe! This gap was causing problems for the S. family of Lebanon, IN. They had Indiana Home Comfort Solutions come out to insulation in their attic. Before the insulation could properly be installed, they had to seal the chimney first.

This seals all air leaks and gaps and around the chimney to add value and increase insulation efficiency.
