Benefits of Basement Insulation
Many older homes in Toronto have un-insulated basements and this can lead to any number of problems, from moisture damage, leakage, and heat or coolant loss. Energy bills can be hundreds of dollars higher with un-insulated basements.
Some of the key benefits of basement insulation are as follows:
- Save Energy & Cost – Heat loss from a basement can account for a significant portion of energy loss from your home, especially in Toronto. This may be up to as much as 25%. In order to combat this heat loss, it is recommended that you install basement insulation. Your energy costs will be reduced and your home will benefit in many other ways also. There are three common ways to insulate your basement walls: insulating exterior walls, insulating interior walls and insulating within a wall. Basement insulation will keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, resulting reduce in energy consumption and cost, allowing you to save money.
- Lower Moisture Content – Many older homes have un-insulated basements and this can lead to any number of problems, from moisture damage, leakage, condensation, and weeping walls. Such problems will ultimately lead to the growth of fungi, mold, and mildew in the basement walls over time, which ultimately destabilized your structure badly. Remember that insulation is your best defense against conductive heat loss, but it can also be your best protection against moisture and possible mold problems. Best of all if you ever decide to sell your home it will increase the value of your home because of its protection.
- Prevent Water pipe Freezing – The cold climate of Toronto freezes water pipes, especially those located in the basement. With basement insulation, you can prevent this issue, which ultimately saves your cost in necessary water pipe repairing costs.
- Protecting Foundation Water – Houses with basement insulation protect the foundation and prevent accumulation of water from the outside, which late-on freezes and thaw cycles in colder regions, such as Toronto. Basement insulation acts as a buffer between outside water and structure, making it perfect to protect your structure.
Types of Basement Insulation
There are many types of insulation from which to choose:
- Fiberglass Insulation – Fiberglass insulation is sold in rolls or batts. It is one of the older forms of insulation. This cloth is generally more affordable, and easier to install. Fiberglass is made up of billions of strands of glass woven together. This allows for a greater surface coverage area at lighter weight. It is non-combustible and non-absorbent, making it a perfect option for many types of basement insulation.
- Spray Foam Insulation – Spray foam is probably the most effective and certainly one of the most popular techniques for basement insulation. Spray foam is an expanding foam insulation that is sprayed onto the surfaces of your home that you intended to have insulated. It instantly expands and dries into a hard air and watertight seal. Its application can be used on the interior or exterior of your building making it a very versatile choice.
- Foam Board Insulation – Foam board comes in sheets much like drywall. It is available in several thicknesses and R-value ratings as well. Common uses for foam board insulation are basement walls and on top of concrete basement floors between other types of flooring. Foam boards can be fitted between wall joists in your basement and will offer an excellent airtight barrier. This material can be used on the exterior of your home as well.
- Blowin-in Insulation – Blown-in basement insulation is made of either fiberglass or cellulose. It comes packaged in large blocks that are broken down in the insulation blower.
Frequently Asked Questions
The question then becomes whether to insulate the basement exterior or interior. Insulating the exterior keeps the foundation concreted within the home’s thermal envelope, reducing the likelihood of temperature swings. It also protects waterproofing and doesn’t reduce the interior space in your basement. It is easier to insulate and keeps the interior wall exposed, which allows for inspection of cracks. It is probably the preferred method of basement insulation for new homes.
However, interior basement insulation works better with the construction schedule, since it can happen later in the process, and won’t interrupt the excavation backfill process. It is easier to connect the below slab insulation and the wall insulation.
Basement insulation is increasingly filling an important function in households. No longer are they empty storage spaces with a furnace and washing machines. They are often used for family rooms, extra bedrooms, or income-generation units. Proper basement insulation is necessary and a professional will help you along that money-saving road.
It is also wisest to go with a company that understands local conditions, especially in Toronto. Toronto has hot summers and often cold or wet winters. Dampness is an ongoing problem in any city that has a relatively major swing in its weather, and the insulation installer’s ability to undertake moisture and dampness assessment and repair on the foundation is important. Also, a local contractor in Toronto will understand the unique requirements that the city’s large stock of older dwellings demands.
Put very simply, the R-value of any insulation is a measurement of its resistance to the flow of heat. If the R-value is higher, the insulation is more effective. Ultimately the final R-value will be the type and amount of a given material that is used in the basement insulation.
To get the best out of your basement insulation, you should know a bit about the types of insulation and what they are best used for. The rolled or fiberglass batt insulation is quite often used for walls and attics. They are cut to fit a standard space of studs used in wall, attic, and floor construction. R-values generally range from R-13 to R-21 for this kind of work.
Before installing basement insulation, verify that the basement wall doesn’t have a water-entry situation. If your basement suffers dampness in spring or after heavy rains, the walls should not be insulated until the problem is solved. It can be as simple as adjusting the grade around your house, so that the soil slopes away from the building, or altering roof gutters and drains.
Because of the potential hazards posed by dampness, it is essential to hire a contractor with local experience and, in particular, knowledge of weather and precipitation patterns. The requirements for basement insulation in a multi-weather system city like Toronto are substantially different from a dryer city.

Very courteous and professional
I got inspector John's number from my friend who have had his service before. He responsed very quickly, called me the same date, and came visit my house the next day. He was very courteous and professional, checked many places in my house and dignosed where the problems are coming from, turns out I only had less than 7" of the insulation on my attic, and its unevenly distributed everywhere, even saw...

Increased to 21 inches
I had my attic insulation increased to 21 inches last weekend. I was skeptical at first when Jakey told me about the numberous benefits of increased attic insulation. Right now, I think the upper rooms feels much warmer and the furnace seems to be running less as well.
