Although insulating a basement may seem self-evident to a homeowner, the necessity of the it is sometimes overlooked. Simply put, the basement is arguably just as important as any other place in the home to receive insulation. The ideal situation for insulation professionals is to insulate a home from top to bottom. A well-sealed, insulated, and ventilated home will provide long-term benefits.
A poorly insulated basement will allow unwanted air to seep through throughout the year, compromising indoor temperatures. Warm air will infiltrate in the summer, while chilly air will depart. Heat will leave in the winter, while cold external air will get in. This will lead to the HVAC system (which includes heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) overworking to keep the temperatures where you want them.
Unwanted air flow, whether in the basement or throughout the house, is a surefire way to waste energy and money. This is why it's smart to make an investment in basement insulation. Basement insulation is especially vital if the space will be used as a living space, since it will provide a comfortable climate all year.
Basements, unlike other portions of the house, are cold and wet. This is because the outside walls on all sides of the building structure absorb subsurface temperatures. Coldness and moisture will penetrate when there is no discernible barrier between the interior and the exterior. The unwanted effect is an uncomfortable living environment.
So long as it is necessary, insulating a basement can be very beneficial, and contribute to a more comfortable and efficiently operating home for years to come.
A well-insulated home is more appealing to a prospective buyer when it comes time to sell the property, in addition to the annual savings on winter heating and summer cooling. Most people value the basement as a place to enjoy themselves, a place where they can maybe set up their largest TV or a ping pong table, or set up a painting station or whatever someone is into, so having it be a comfortable and consistently temperate part of the home is a huge upside for both you when you live in the home, and if you ever decide to sell your home. Proper basement insulation provides these benefits, helps the environment, and allows you to put down an investment on your home that is sure to yield significant ROI so long as it is done by capable, caring, expert professionals. That is exactly the service we will provide for you.
