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.

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.
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.
At Basement Systems, we offer installation of our Basement To Beautiful™ Wall Insulation System as an additional basement service while our crew is waterproofing your basement. Our insulation system is fully compatible with our sump pump and perimeter drainage system and is specially designed for the basement environment.
Our Basement To Beautiful™ Wall Insulation System provides the following benefits:
Our Basement To Beautiful™ Insulation Panels are designed with SilverGlo™™ Insulation, an innovative new rigid foam insulation product.
SilverGlo™ is designed with 2 ½" thick graphite-impregnated foam, which is 24% more efficient than conventional expanded polystyrene insulation. When installed, it provides your basement walls with an industry-leading R-13 Insulation rating.
The distinct design of Basement To Beautiful™ Panels includes rigid metal studs that are integrated within the insulation board. Unlike wood, these metal studs will not support mold growth, nor will they be damaged by water in the event of basement flooding in your home.
To prevent heat from escaping your basement by passing through the metal studs, each stud set is separated by 2" of SilverGlo™ Insulation.
Installing wood studs and fiberglass batt insulation in a basement could take weeks or even months to complete. Basement To Beautiful™ Panels can usually be installed on all basement walls in just a couple days.
Our waterproofing crews are fully trained to install these insulated panels, and insulated panels can be installed at the same time that your basement is waterproofed. These panels can be installed in your basement with minimal noise or disruption.
If your basement has fiberglass insulation installed, it will be vulnerable to basement flooding. Fiberglass contains dyes, resins, and other organic materials that will support mold growth and can be ruined in a flood.
Basement To Beautiful™ Panels are completely waterproof, and they will not soak up water or be damaged if you have a flood in your basement.
Concrete is an open, porous material that water vapor can easily pass through. Since your concrete foundation is surrounded by moist dirt, water vapor is continually passing through -- even when the walls don't look wet. This is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.
Installing Basement To Beautiful™ Panels on your basement walls will create a vapor barrier there -- one that holds back humidity and keeps your basement drier than ever!
Whether you're finishing your basement, or you just want a drier, more comfortable space in your home, your local Basement Systems Dealer is ready to help you. We can upgrade your basement walls with a waterproof, insulated solution that will save you money for decades to come!
