Insulating Basement Walls

Bare concrete foundation walls in a basement before insulation was installed.

Uninsulated basement walls are naturally cold because they are in contact with the earth around them.

Foundation soils typically maintain a year-round temperature of about 55 °F, which is cold enough to burden your utilities and increase energy bills.

Whether you're planning on finishing your basement or you'd simply like to restore the basement to dry, usable space, insulating the walls is a great idea.

Your local Basement Systems contractor can quickly and effectively insulate your basement walls. This will make the space more comfortable and energy efficient, while also preparing the space for finishing.

The Value Of Insulating Basement Walls

Even if you do not access the basement regularly or use it as living space, there's value to insulating your basement walls.

Even if no one living in the home accesses the basement on a regular basement, and the door to the basement is kept firmly shut, there are several utilities in the basement that are best kept in a temperate environment.

Water heaters, furnaces, HVAC systems, heating ducts, and hot water pipes are all at their most energy efficient when not in a cold basement environment. If your basement walls are not insulated, they're working harder just to do the job they were designed to do.

Insulating your basement walls will also help to create a more comfortable home. Cold drafts from the basement will be eliminated, and cold floors above the basement will be eliminated.

How Much Money Can You Save With Basement Finishing?

The U.S. Department of Energy recently did a study on how much money could be saved by insulating basement walls, and found that the annual savings on basement walls insulation are very significant in northern climates.

Residents of Denver, Colorado can save between $310 and $350 per year, while residents in Minneapolis, Minnesota can save as much as $450 annually by insulating their basement walls. These numbers are based on a 1,500 square-foot home with a conditioned basement that's heated by natural gas at $0.72/therm US, or about $.70 Canadian currency.

That's some big savings -- especially if a tax incentive is being offered to upgrade your home's energy efficiency.
