According to the U.S. Department of Energy Home Improvement Expert™ Factsheet
“Installed correctly, basement wall insulation can cut your utility bills, make your home more comfortable and increase its value.”
It has been estimated that 80% of American homes are under insulated compared to today’s standards and offer little to no air sealing which allows air to freely leak from the outside and into the living space.
In the past, builders were limited to conventional fiber insulation. This is designed to delay heat loss, but cannot air seal and can retain moisture.
Today it is common for energy codes to require a non-permeable and seamless insulation on basement walls and foam sealed foundation sill / joist ends prior to framing.
St Louis Insulation offers a full range of basement insulation, heat management and air sealing services as well as sound control systems, non-wood exterior basement wall framing, and more.
