Keith visited this home in Augusta, ME. The homeowner said the bedrooms over the garage were freezing cold all winter, and the home had just gone through an entire renovation. After checking the ceiling with the Boroscope, we found that there was no insulation in the garage ceiling! No wonder those rooms were cold.
This is an easy fix for Dr. Energy Saver and Keith Trembley Home Solutions. We just need to pop off some vinyl siding and drill holes in the box sill, then we dense pack the entire ceiling with cellulose giving the 2x8" ceiling an R value of approximately 30. That will solve the cold bedroom problem and save some money on the heating bill.
