Basements pose a unique problem for insulation. There is significant moisture in a basement coming from both the inside and the outside of the house.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation for Basements are:
- Is draft free and air-tight
- Reduces heating/cooling cost
- Helps to eliminate condensing surfaces which can lead to mold growth
- Helps reduce humidity preventing mold and moisture
- Increases the comfort in your home by keeping temperatures more even with the rest of the home
- Is environmentally friendly
The best choice for insulating basement walls is Closed Cell Spray Foam insulation (See Closed Cell vs Open Cell Spray Foam) which is both the air barrier and insulation in one. Spray Foam Insulation is a superior option for insulating basements as opposed to the more traditional batt insulation and vapour barrier.
Application of Spray Foam
Spray polyurethane foam insulation can be applied to walls, ceilings, and rim joists in your basement. Closed-cell insulation becomes rigid upon application resulting in an air-tight seal and preventing air from passing from your home to outside.
