Your basement insulation might be fiberglass batts, which is generally used for insulating living space, not basement space. This type of insulation will not make your basement any more comfortable or save you energy. Fiberglass insulation will not prevent air from leaking out or moisture problems from developing. At Energy Tech Insulation, we offer a variety of solutions for your basement insulation needs. Once our professional insulation contractor has performed an inspection of your basement, they can make a recommendation that will suit your specific needs.

Effective Methods of Insulating a Basement
Since we started out telling you about the many things that are wrong with fiberglass insulation, you should know that there are some better alternatives. Foam insulation is popular because it will not absorb moisture like fiberglass will; it doesn’t compress and stays in place. We want you to know that you can always rely on us for your basement insulation needs, as we offer the following insulation solutions.
An effective insulation panel, which helps improve the way your basement looks. Our contractor finishes it with a white foil installed on the front of the panel. This is what offers you the insulating benefits. This method is compatible with most waterproofing systems and can be covered over by a wall.
Another panel that we use is made from small graphite particles, which repels heat and offer great R-value. It creates a barrier that redirects the heat back toward your basement. When this rigid foam is applied to the walls of your basement, it creates a more comfortable living environment and offers energy efficiency.
Finally, our contractors use a method that offers you maximum savings because both the walls and floors are insulated. This process involves installing insulation and subflooring in one visit. Our contractor can also insulate the joists in your basement and stop air from infiltrating your home.
