Air-sealing in frigid weather. Can foam or caulk?
My house is bone dry (humidity in the teens). I know most of my walls are empty and likely I will not be blowing in dense pack cellulose until spring. So I have a house with air coming in at baseboards on the 1st floor. See IR camera picture attached.
I also have could areas around doors where I removed the trim and I can see outside trim through the gaps.
Here is the problem: it is 10F to 20F in Boston right now. I know Great Stuff canned spray foam needs temperature and moisture to cure. I can mist whee I need to seal, but not sure if I can use it from inside when likely door frames are like 20 degrees at best.
I could do caulk, but filling 1/2 gap around door – not sure how effective it is with caulk.
