Basement Insulation Solutions

Insulating basement walls with rigid foam

Permanent solution. Rigid foam insulation can be installed against foundation walls with adhesive and masonry fasteners.  

Many houses have basement insulation in the form of fiberglass batts that are installed between basement ceiling joists. But this insulation is for the upstairs space; it does nothing to make your basement more comfortable and energy efficient. The other limitation of fiberglass insulation is that it can’t stop air leakage that causes comfort, energy and moisture problems. 

Dr. Energy Saver offers a variety of insulation solutions designed specifically for the basement environment. Your local Dr. Energy Saver contractor can inspect your home and help you decide on the best insulation plan for your basement.

Benefits of insulating your basement

One-step solution. ThermalDry® Decking combines rigid foam floor insulation with moisture-proof & mold-proof subflooring.

Innovative basement wall & floor insulation products made from rigid foam

Unlike fiberglass batts, rigid foam insulation won’t absorb moisture, compress, lose R-value or fall out of place. It has ideal characteristics for use in the basement, which is why we recommend three innovative basement insulation products: SilverGlo™ basement wall insulation, Foamax® basement wall insulation, and ThermalDry® insulated subfloor panels.

Putting rigid foam insulation on basement walls will make your basement and your entire house more comfortable and more energy efficient. SilverGlo™ panels are made with tiny graphite particles that reflect heat and provide superior R-value. The rigid foam panels also boast a radiant barrier, which reflects heat back into your basement.

Foamax® is a highly effective insulation panel that also serves to improve the appearance of your basement. Finished with a white foil on the front, Foamax® provides the wall insulation you need to improve your home comfort and energy efficiency. Even better, Foamax® is fully compatible with your basement waterproofing system and can easily be covered with a fully finished wall.

For maximum energy savings and comfort, it's best to insulate both the walls and floors of your basement. If you plan to install finished flooring when remodeling the basement, it's smart to install ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™ first. These interlocking, 2-ft. X 2-ft. squares combine rigid foam insulation and special moisture-proof underlayment. You install basement floor insulation and subflooring in one step – a great start for the finished floor of your choice.

When your foundation walls are insulated with rigid foam, your Dr. Energy Saver contractor can also seal and insulate the rim joist in your basement or crawl space to eliminate this major source of air infiltration.

Nick Nason completed an insulation evaluation and upgrade at our condo last winter. As a result of his excellent work our heating costs so far this winter are 50% of what they were last winter at this time, despite much colder conditions. In addition to the financial savings the level of comfort has improved tremendously.

Rich and Eric were both caring and hard working individuals. I would recommend them to anyone. They treated me with respect and treated my house like it was their own.
