Keep your NY Home's Basement Insulated with Fred F. Collis and Sons

Basements can be the source of many comfort issues in your Rome or Utica, NY area home. Often the basement is unused space, containing only the furnace and water heater. But if you’re hoping to expand your living areas into your basement or just improve your home’s efficiency, insulating your basement can provide improved comfort and energy savings.

Benefits of Proper Basement Insulation

Even though your basement walls are thick, the concrete or cinder block material is not a very good insulator. Many Utica NY area homeowners find that there are some benefits to upgrading the basement area with spray foam insulation. Adding basement insulation can:

  • Increase family use of the basement areas

  • Enhance indoor comfort

  • Improve energy efficiency

  • Extend the life of heating and cooling equipment

  • Reduce moisture and musty smells

Where is Insulation Applied in Basements?

The insulation pros at Fred F. Collis & Sons begin each insulation project with a comprehensive energy assessment. This home energy audit can identify sources of discomfort and energy loss throughout your New York home, including your basement. Using our blower door testing equipment and infrared thermal imaging, we can locate areas in the basement where insulation should be applied. Often, our insulation technicians will target these areas:

  • Rim Joists: These are where the floor joists connect with the sill plate at the top of your basement walls. This area is leaky and can conduct heat out of the basement. Rim joists are easily sealed with spray foam to eliminate air leakage and energy loss.

  • Basement walls: Adding spray foam insulation can prep basement walls for finishing off with sheetrock for added living area. Spray foam will also help mitigate moisture problems on basement walls making your basement area more comfortable.

Expert Basement Insulation Installation

Your basement can be transformed from damp, wasted space into a comfortable living area the whole family can enjoy. Spray foam insulation is a great option for upstate New York basements, but it should be applied by a certified professional, like the experts at Fred F. Collis & Sons. Due to the nature of spray foam insulation, it needs to be carefully mixed and applied, using proper application techniques and necessary safety precautions. Spray foam is effective only when it’s installed correctly and completely. With our years of basement insulation experience, the insulation pros at Fred F. Collis & Sons.can help you save money and energy with basement insulation.
