Knee Wall Insulation in Charlotte, Winston-Salem & the Whole Piedmont Triad, NC

Greenserve air seals and insulates knee wall spaces to help improve the efficiency and comfort of the home. Knee wall spaces are small spaces commonly found in finished attics beneath the roof rafters. These rooms are most often found in attics with either cathedral or sloped ceilings behind a short wall and come with or without a small door to access the area. 

Overview of Knee Wall Spaces

Typically these spaces are treated as if they were outside the thermal boundary of the house. They are not insulated as you would normally insulate an attic, and the small wall that separates it from the living area isn't insulated either.

The roof above the knee wall can reach scorching temperatures during the summer, and get freezing cold during the winter. In addition, soffit vents used to vent the roof allow dirty, unconditioned air from the outside to flow inside the home.

The unconditioned air will then leak into the conditioned area, transferring its extreme temperatures to the whole house through the walls and cavities.

All of this air leakage and heat transfer makes your home much harder to cool and heat, increasing your energy bills. That is the reason why in homes with knee wall spaces, Greenserve considers knee wall insulation an energy efficient priority along with attic and foundation insulation.

The Benefits of Insulating the Knee Wall Space

Once the knee-wall space is air-sealed and insulated properly, this space is brought into the thermal boundary of the home. Finished rooms with knee-wall spaces adjacent to them will no longer feel the effects of hot and cold air penetrating the room.

Once our job is done the knee wall space could now be used as storage, keeping your possessions out of the cold harm of severe temperatures. An insulated and air-sealed knee wall space will make a huge difference in the overall comfort and efficiency of the home, especially multi-story homes. This space will now block heat from infiltrating the home and keep conditioned air inside the home, putting less dependency on your heating and cooling systems and ultimately, saving more money.
