BASEMENT INSULATION WRAP

Basement Bubble Insulation

Insulapack Basement Bubble Insulation Features & Benefits

Insulating your basement is beneficial to the comfort of the whole house and will reduce the energy consumption required to heat or cool the home.

When finishing a basement, the most important thing to make sure of is that it’s properly insulated with basement insulation wrap, otherwise you are just going to create the perfect environment for mold and mildew. That’s not the kind of thing you want your family exposed to. Breathing in mold spores can lead to serious health problems, such as respiratory issues.

When a basement is finished but not properly insulated with basement foil wrap insulation, warm air from inside the finished space can come into contact with the foundation walls, behind the insulation. The foundation walls are going to be cooler because of the temperature of the soil on the other side. Warm air holds moisture. So, when the warm air encounters the cold foundation walls, it will start to cool. That’s when you get condensation. Not only in the walls, but basement ceiling insulation is also important for the home. The last thing you want is to have to deal with a mold problem after you have completed your renovation.

The benefits of Insulapack’s insulation creates a lot more than comfort. It is a fact that basement insulation is one of the most practical renovations that you can do, resulting in a dramatic energy requirement reduction which decreases energy usage thus lowering the utility bills (gas and electric) throughout all 4 seasons.

Basements have to be well-insulated with basement insulation wrap, perhaps even more so than other parts of the house to reap the benefits of cost savings. This does not mean that the other areas of the home should be neglected. Attics, garages, floors and any other areas close to the outside should be looked at. Normally, we do insulation inside the attic or walls of the home. But with an unheated basement, you might find that your uninsulated basement ceiling is leaking cold air into your space. So, basement ceiling insulation is essential to a fully insulated home. A basement that has a much higher insulation rating than required by the code, will also add real estate value to a home, especially with the newly introduced energy regulations governing home energy performance.

The occurrence of losing heat in winter and heat entering in summer is effectively stopped. Insulation performance (R-Value) is determined by the type of insulation installed. You want insulation that will not mold or be a haven for rodents and insects, will not absorb moisture through humidity and will not create any toxic fibers to be unleashed throughout the house. You also want the R value to remain constant notwithstanding large temperature changes. Insulapack’s basement insulation wrap provides all of these essential requirements. As well, air-laden moisture is prevented from collecting. The saving on heating and cooling the home will be ongoing.

Insulapack provides for enhanced thermal insulation (R-Value) beyond any comparable product. Thereby increasing the energy efficiency throughout the entire house
