How Do I Know if I Need More Insulation in My Basement?

If you’re not sure whether your current basement insulation is adequate, the best option is to ask a professional’s opinion. But if you’d like to make sure that’s worth the time, you can look for the telltale signs of inadequate basement insulation.

You may not experience all of these at once, but the more you recognize, the more important it will be to add basement insulation:

  • Cold ground floor: If your basement is poorly insulated, then your ground floor isn’t adequately protected from the elements. You’ll likely feel the cold in your feet most of all, from drafts and cold floors.
  • Rising energy bills: If your energy bills are rising, it can indicate poor insulation or weatherproofing anywhere — but basements are especially prone to poor insulation and thus should be one of the first culprits you investigate.
  • Pests in the basement: Poor basement insulation means more moisture and pollutants make it into your home. Pests require a water source and a food source, which they’ll get in a poorly insulated basement, and damp air and mold spores can quickly build a small ecosystem in your basement.
  • Frozen pipes and leaks: Cold weather and a poorly insulated basement can lead to a lot of frozen pipes damage. Even if you don’t have burst pipes, you might damage your plumbing, especially if this becomes a regular occurrence.
  • Cold, damp walls: Watch out for cold, damp walls, especially in a basement that’s supposed to be finished and insulated for comfortable occupancy. If the walls inside your home feel like they could be walls outside of your home on a cold day, you need an insulation upgrade.

Of course, these are just a few of the signs of insulation problems in your basement. You might spot other signs or not notice these — especially if your basement insulation has always been bad and you’re used to the resulting high energy bills.

To learn more about the signs of a poorly insulated basement or schedule a consultation for insulation retrofitting, call 518-650-1100 today.

Albany Basement Insulation Installation

Because the basement is more connected to other living spaces than the outside of the house, insulating basement walls is preferable to insulating the basement ceiling. Each has its advantages.

Basement exterior wall insulation:

  • Requires less insulation than insulating the basement’s ceiling
  • Maintains continuous thermal and air leakage boundaries
  • Reduces heat loss through the foundation of your home
  • Allows for a minimal increase in the size of heating and cooling equipment
  • Reduces the risk of condensation and mildew in the basement

Basement ceiling insulation:

  • Is less expensive to install, especially for pre-existing buildings
  • Uses almost any material — blown-in cellulosefiberglass, etc.
  • Is isolated from the cold climate outdoors, compared to exterior wall insulation

We have a team of experts who are ready to help you.
