Just below the floor sits an important, yet possibly unfamiliar component of your home: the rim joists.
Simply put, the rim joists are where floor boards sit on top of your foundation with an outside rim board holding it all together. They’re also a major source of heat loss in your home, heat loss that ultimately increases your home’s energy costs.
That’s because rim joists often allow in drafts, which then creep through your home into walls and holes created by plumbing and electrical equipment. When your rim joist isn’t insulated, you will also experience cold floors.
Now that you’re aware, don’t despair. We have a simple solution: foam insulation is the perfect fit to seal in this space. The foam creates a tight air seal around any gap or cracks. It also seals the bottom plate to the concrete wall or block foundation.
No more drafts. Higher comfort. Lower energy bills.
