The Importance of Home Insulation for Basements and Crawl Spaces
When homeowners think of home insulation, they often think about their attic and the exterior walls of their house. However, one of the most important barriers in your home’s protective thermal envelope is the insulation in your basement or crawl space. There are numerous reasons that insulation in your basement or crawlspace is extremely important. If you have overlooked your home insulation in the basement or crawlspace, read on to learn all the facts from the pros at Valley Insulation.
Warmer in the Winter and Cooler in the Summer
Just as it does anywhere else in your house, good insulation in your basement or crawlspace has a major effect on your comfort at home. You and your family will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, with improved temperature, humidity, and air quality in your home. Basement and crawlspace home insulation is often overlooked, so even a small investment can result in significant benefits that really deliver the most bang for your buck.

Protect Your Plumbing and Appliances
A poorly insulated basement or crawlspace will leave your family much colder during the winter, but it will also leave your plumbing and appliances colder as well. This may not be a problem throughout most of the year, but even one or two days of extreme cold temperature can result in major damages to your home and extremely expensive repairs. Freezing and broken pipes, appliance failure, and HVAC breakdown can occur with just one night of exposure to freezing temperatures in your basement or crawlspace.
Protect Your Home Against Pests
With a thorough assessment of penetration vectors, and advanced insulation and air penetration prevention techniques, the pros at Valley Insulation can turn your basement or crawlspace from a pest and rodent entryway into a resilient barrier.
