The Benefits of Spray Foaming Your Basement
Spray foaming your basement walls and insulating your basement ceiling are common improvements to your home. It’s a relatively quick and affordable solution, it can be finished off for a clean-looking space. Plus, insulated basements mean more efficient heating systems. That means warmer basement temperatures, warmer floors throughout your house, and lower energy costs year round!
Do I need to insulate my basement?
It’s an important first question! Here are a few ways to determine whether you need a professional evaluation. If any of these are true, you should consider insulating your basement:
- Cold first level floors
- Chilly basement
- Crumbling Foundation
- Bugs & Critters in the basement
- Drafts of air in the basement
Basements are a heat sink—drawing heat away from the rest of your home throughout the year. If your first level floors are warm, or if you walk into your finished basement and it feels as comfortable as the rest of your house, it’s most likely already insulated. If your first-level floors are cold, or your basement is unfinished and/or cold, you’re definitely losing heat (and money).
Insulating your exterior basement walls (those around the perimeter) helps seal away that cold concrete that often absorbs your heat and passes it to the earth outside.
