The “rim joist” or sill is the area of your home where the foundation meets the house.  Often fiberglass is stuffed into the exposed bays offering little to no insulation value.  Since this is the lower area of the home it is crucial that it is properly sealed and insulated.

As heat rises, cold air is drawn in from the lower areas of the home. As a result we get cold floors in the above rooms, drafts, and dust.

CNY Green Energy Solutions recommends sealing this area with 2 part spray foam to ensure that the cavity is fully sealed and insulated. This method will also provide a vapor and moisture barrier as well.
