A lot of people do not know that a lot of energy can be lost through a poorly insulated basement. We all know the popular saying “hot air rises”, so a lot of homeowners think basement insulation is not necessary. However, heat leaves through the basement just like it does everywhere else in your home. In fact, up to 30% of the energy you are paying for to heat and cool your home can be lost in the basement. To save money every month and to avoid paying for energy that is wasted, you can have basement insulation installed to make your basement much more energy-efficient. You can save money while doing your part to make sure energy is not wasted.
Basement insulation will turn your dark and damp basement into a distant memory. Properly installed insulation will help keep your basement warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It will help the temperature in your basement stay comfortable all year long, so you can enjoy using the space. Basement insulation can also help prevent mold and improve your home’s air quality.
If your basement is unfinished, you have two options when it comes to basement insulation. You can insulate the ceiling and walls, creating usable indoor space, or you can insulate just the ceiling, close off all heating and cooling vents, and treat the rest of the basement as unused space. The choice is completely up to you. You just need to decide on the best use of the space and what you would like to do with the space in the future. No matter what option you choose, you will save money and use less energy every month.
