THE IMPORTANCE OF BASEMENT INSULATION

Basement insulation can make all the difference when renovating your home. Call Toronto Tapers today to get your no-obligation quote! 

The importance of getting your basement properly insulated can not be stressed enough. Because basements are constructed below ground, they are extremely vulnerable to moisture and mold.

As a result, most cases of severe mold growth start in the basement. That being said, there are many consequences that can come from an improper insulation system in the basement. 

These consequences can be mold and moisture, and a 30% increased heat loss compared to an insulated basement. Making sure that your basement has its concrete walls and basement floor insulated will increase energy efficiency. Monthly energy savings because your heating systems would no longer have to work harder to compensate.

Why Insulate your basement? 

The main goal when insulating any part of your house is of course to keep the area warm and to prevent moisture from entering. But proper insulation will also keep the area cool during the summer! This is done by preventing hot air from entering your living space.

Types of Basement Insulation 

Before you start learning about materials, it’s good to know the 2 basic options for basement insulation:

Inside basement insulation can be installed at any time of year, regardless of the weather. It is also lower in price and is an option for those who do not want to bother with outside insulation. Concrete foundations, found in almost all houses built since the 1920s, can be insulated from the inside or outside. 

Inside insulation is by far the cheaper option. This is because we do not have to perform the excavation of the soil. This option makes much more sense for those who are simply just looking to renovate the inside of their homes. 

Outside basement insulation has its upsides, as well as downsides. As mentioned, it requires excavation of the soil around the foundation wall. However, the outside wall is often more continuous than inside walls, which makes it easier to properly insulate. Additionally, when older homes are being insulated, the exterior wall can be repaired as it is insulated.
