Job Stories From Shacklefords, VA
Solving Cold Floors and Drafts in a Shacklefords, VA Home

This Shacklefords, VA homeowner reached out because they were experiencing cold floors, despite there being insulation in the crawl space and drafts on the first floor of their home.

Often, drafts and cold floors on the first floor are a symptom of drafts and poor insulation in the crawl space. The stack effect tells us that as conditioned air escapes out of the top of the home, new unconditioned air is being pulled in at the bottom of the home (the crawl space or basement) and ultimately into the living space.

We found that the crawl space was vented, allowing cold air to rush into the crawl space in winter months. Outside air also leaks in at the rim and band, sill plate, and any penetrations to the outside through the foundation walls. The fiberglass insulation, despite being between the joists, was not keeping the floors warm. To be effective, fiberglass insulation needs to be enclosed on all sides. Instead, it is allowing cold air to flow up through the home, leaving the homeowners uncomfortable.

Beyond the problems contributing to the homeowner’s discomfort, we also found that high relative humidity had resulted in microbial growth, and an unsealed vapor barrier was allowing the earth’s moisture to rise and exacerbate the problem.

Our recommendation to the homeowners included sealing the crawl space to prevent cold outside air from coming in the winter leaving them with cold feet and drafty rooms. Sealing the crawl space includes sealing all vents, the rim and band, sill plate, and all penetrations in the foundation wall. We also recommend sealing the crawl space from the earth’s moisture with a heavy-duty vapor barrier. Because temperature can radiate through the foundation walls leaving the crawl space cold, we recommend insulating from the foundation walls. This is more effective than covering the fiberglass insulation in the joists because it would cause the insulation to hold moisture, become heavy, and fall away from the floors. Since we are sealing the crawl space, we recommend installing a dehumidifier to control relative humidity to prevent future mold growth.

If the homeowners choose to proceed with this solution, it will help control the temperature of the crawl space and seal the crawl space from the outside air. This will leave the homeowners with warmer floors, fewer drafts, meaning they can be comfortable in their home.
