Signs Your Basement Needs Insulation

It’s easy to miss signs that your basement is under-insulated. However, these signs become increasingly obvious when you know what to look for. If you notice any of the following, we recommend reaching out to a specialist to determine the best way to insulate your basement:

  • Rising utility bills without an identifiable cause
  • Cold drafts wafting through the basement or floor
  • Floors that feel cold to the touch
  • Pest infiltration, including rodents or insects
  • Frozen pipes or water leaks
  • Difficulty maintaining consistent temperature within the home
  • Increased indoor humidity
  • Mold or mildew proliferation

What is the Best Insulation for a Basement?

Our team can install many different types of insulation in your basement. What’s best for your needs will vary depending on a wide range of factors, and we will help you determine the best option for your home. Our insulation contractors can install:

Rigid mineral wool boards: Naturally fire resistant and with exceptional sound absorbance, rigid mineral wool boards offer remarkable R-value. They can be installed throughout the basement, providing reliable coverage between wall studs and other cavities.

High-density polystyrene: Easily installed and FDA-compliant, high-density polystyrene is a cost-effective insulation option with reliable impact resistance. It also provides exceptional moisture resistance and significantly improves your home’s energy efficiency.

Polyurethane/polyisocyanurate boards: These can be quickly installed in basements (or attics) to create a reliable air barrier. These will reliably seal your basement from the elements and provide long-lasting thermal protection.

Spray foam: Spray foam insulation provides a solid, effective barrier against air leaks and moisture infiltration. It is also mold/mildew resistant and has a proven record of improving indoor air quality.

What R-Value Is Recommended for Basements?

R-value requirements vary across New York. Since Long Island is in Zone 4, the IECC requires homeowners to have between R-10 and R-13 on basement walls and crawl spaces and R-10 insulation on the slab. By comparison, homes in Upstate New York are located in Zones 5 or 6 and must have between R-15 and R-19.
