Why Should You Insulate Your Attic and Basement?
An unfinished attic or basement can take a toll on your heating/cooling system, and your wallet. The culprit is missing insulation or being under-insulated. Even if you plan on keeping the rooms unused, or for storage, they still need to have some form of insulation. Insulation is needed to keep the heat inside, the cold outside, and vice versa, depending on the time of year. Insulation has proper airflow to help keep moisture from building up. Moisture that’s trapped could cause mold and other problems to grow.
What Type Of Insulation Should You Use?
It’s recommended to insulate all of the basement, but the most crucial spot in the ceiling. This will help keep the floor of the first floor warm as well as keep warm air in the basement.
We also offer Draft Caps for your attic stairs to provide that extra level of insulation. The draft cap is made from polystyrene foam that’s dust-free. These draft caps will allow for heat to get trapped in the attic, which helps warm the roof, decreasing ice forming.
