Homeowners Focus on the Need to Insulate Basement Walls Properly

Posted by Ecostar Insulation on October 27, 2017

One of the more ignored areas of residential properties is the basement. Unfinished basements are generally inefficient and can contribute to various energy consumption and air quality issues within the home. Basement insulation is a key component to efficiency and owners must be aware of the importance to insulate basement walls properly. Finished basements are especially troublesome because of the excess humidity that can build up in livable areas and insulation should be checked in those environments as well. Improper and faulty insulation applications in finished basements could severely restrict and impair airflow which could lead to more critical problems such as mold and other air quality issues.

Faulty insulation can be the cause of many home issues

Basement wall insulation plays such a critical role in the overall livability of the residence. Basements that are not finished and have exposed concrete could easily release heated and cooled air from the home dramatically increasing energy consumption and and operational costs. Faulty and improperly installed insulation could create an airflow imbalance inside the home which could lead to air quality and health & safety issues at the property. Homeowners undertaking basement finishing projects must make sure to insulate basement walls properly during renovations to prevent energy consumption issues and air quality management challenges which could lead to larger and more expensive repairs. Creating an airtight barrier between the walls of the basement and outside elements is the most efficient way to control and  maintain airflow within the entire residence.
