A kneewall space is created when a finished room is built within a sloped roof. Often, these walls are “insulated” using fiberglass batting. Since fiberglass does not stop air flow, the insulation does next to nothing to air seal and insulate----causing rooms sharing walls with kneewalls to be very uncomfortable. Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis air sealed and insulated this Highland, IL homeowner’s knee wall with spray foam insulation. Now, inside air can’t get out of the house through the kneewall spaces and outside air can’t get in. This bedroom is comfortable again!

The detail between the foundation wall, the sill plate, the rim joist, and the sub flooring allows for significant air leakage from the outside...especially when pipe wire penetrations are added. It is also this rim joist area that is often poorly insulated. Even when your rim joist is insulated with fiberglass bats, the outside air will still leak in through the bats, because this form of insulation acts as a filter. Spraying expanding foam insulation on the inside surface of the rim joist, to cover the sill plate down to the top of the basement wall, not only seals all air leaks very effectively, but it insulates as well.
When ductwork or air handlers are located in an attic, they have to work much harder to keep your home comfortable. Battling temperatures upwards of 140 degrees F in the summer and as low as 30 degrees F or less in the winter, your attic air handlers need all the help they can get keeping your conditioned air the temperature you want it to be! One of the steps to achieving that is having your ductwork and air handlers sealed. Dr. Energy Saver encased this ductwork junction with spray foam insulation to seal any leaks, keeping that conditioned air traveling to where it needs to be---inside your living space!

The first picture just show insulation that isn't strong enough to reflect the air. The second picture stops that air from flowing upwards and keeps it in the conditioned space.
Air can seep through just about anywhere. Although windows aren't always the cause of air loss it is still an area of the home that shouldn't be ignored. That's why it is important to seal around the windows as well as other spaces in the home where energy could be lost.
