Our goal is to make this one of the most energy-efficient homes in Kansas City. To accomplish this goal, we’ve put great attention to detail into both insulating and air sealing the home. This has included air sealing around all windows, doors and where all framing joints meet. Sound control insulation was has been installed in all the bathrooms, drain lines and in the floor of the home’s third floor. Foam insulation was installed on all exterior walls and rim joists, and cellulose insulation was installed in the attic. Work of this caliber would normally cost $15,000 or more – all of which is being donated.
The project is going great! The insulation and air sealing work has been very effective. As a result, the HVAC contractor has decreased the size of the unit being installed in the home.
Mike O'Connell has been the lead insulator on this project, working with volunteers provided by Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City.
Our work has been done in partnership with A+ Insulation and Henges Insulation.
