Living above the boiler room
Dear Green Building Advisor,
I am wondering if you might be able to help us come up with a solution to living above the building's boiler. We have been struggling with some exhaust gases escaping into our apartment through the floor, despite the fact that everyone is telling us it is not possible. The floor is made of concrete slabs, so our guess is that the gases are escaping through the joints between the concrete slabs. We have purifiers in the apartment, but they are not enough.
Someone suggested insulating with special insulation paint that would keep the gases from escaping into our apartment. Our son has just been diagnosed with asthma, so we want to act as quickly as possible. Is there any solution beside moving out?
Thank you in advance for your help!
