Your basement and crawlspace could be leaking valuable amounts of air without you even knowing it
Homes being constructed today are more energy efficient than ever before. However, the benefits of foundation insulation are often overlooked. Heat loss from an un-insulated, conditioned basements and crawl spaces may represent up to 50 percent of a home’s total heat loss in a tightly sealed, well-insulated home.
Foundation and crawl space insulation is used primarily to reduce heating costs and has little or no benefit in lowering cooling costs. In addition to reducing heating costs, foundation insulation increases comfort, reduces the potential for condensation and corresponding growth of mold, and increases the livability of below-grade rooms.
Savings from insulated foundations vary with fuel price, heating equipment performance, and climate. Cincinnati Energy Solutions can assess and treat your basement and crawl space.
