One of the most effective ways to improve your home’s temperature and ability to keep mold away is to install or upgrade your basement insulation. Basements, by virtue of their being partially or completely underground, take on the coolness of that surrounding ground. While this is occasionally nice in the summer months, it can lead to higher heating bills and damage from moisture accumulation.
In Canada there is a growing trend of using spray foam or hard foam in basement insulation projects, as opposed to using bat foam. Sometimes adding a vapor barrier is also added. Hard foam is excellent for insulating both the inside an outside of the building’s foundation, and is more resistant to moisture and mold buildup. Spray foam, when applied properly, is excellent for insulating basements because it fits into every corner without the need for extra nails or staples, as well as being very mold and moisture resistant.
