The Benefits of Insulating Your Fargo Basement


Basements often house costly appliances like water heaters, furnaces and boilers, plus pipes and ductwork vulnerable to the cold. They also act as additional storage for seasonal items or items you use infrequently.

Whether you have an older home or are building a new home, insulating the basement can help protect everything you store in your basement while making it easier to heat and cool your home. At Interstate Insulation, we believe basement insulation is a wise investment for nearly any home because it can:

  • Prevent heat loss in the winter: Uninsulated basements can be cold and damp, and that cold can drain significant amounts of heat from your home, resulting in cold floors over the basement. Quality home insulation can reduce heat loss, reduce heating costs and make your home and floors more comfortable.
  • Prevent heat gain in the summer: If your basement is not insulated, the hot air from beneath your home can temper the cool air inside it, making your air conditioner work harder to keep your home comfortable. Proper insulation can virtually stop this heat gain, keeping your home cooler and minimizing air conditioning costs.
  • Prevent moisture problems: Condensation and moisture are common problems in an uninsulated basement, as the moisture in the air will condense onto the cooler concrete surfaces of your basement. This could lead to mold problems, rotten wood or even structural problems as framing deteriorates. Insulating your basement and keeping it at similar temperatures to your home can virtually eliminate condensation.
  • Improve air quality: Without adequate insulation, the air in the basement can be humid and filled with particles of dust, mold spores, pollen and other contaminants. This poor-quality air can be drawn into your home through the basement door, leaking air ducts or poorly sealed floors. Insulating your basement helps keep the moisture and mold levels down and can improve your home’s air quality.

Basement Insulation Installation Specifics

Because the basement is more connected to other living spaces than the outside of the house, insulating basement walls is preferable to insulating the basement ceiling. However, both options have their advantages.

Exterior wall basement insulation:

  • Requires less insulation than insulating the basement’s ceiling
  • Maintains continuous thermal and air leakage boundaries
  • Reduces heat loss through the foundation of your home
  • Allows for minimal increase in the size of heating and cooling equipment
  • Reduces the risk of condensation and mildew in the basement

Interior basement ceiling insulation:

  • Is less expensive to install, especially for pre-existing buildings
  • Uses almost any material, including blown-in cellulose, fiberglass, etc.
  • Eliminates insect infestation
  • Is isolated from the cold climate outdoors, compared to exterior wall insulation
