Basement Insulation Basics
This online engineering PDH course describes the good practices for insulating basements in new and existing homes.
There are many considerations to account for when making decisions about insulation. Costs, codes, energy efficiency, pest control, moisture management; the list goes on. Coupled with the large variety of insulation options including mineral fiber, mineral wool, foam boards, foam sprays, polyisocyanurate, etc., it is important to be aware of what options best suit a project’s particular conditions.
