Basement Insulation Installation
A comfortable home & low energy costs starts from the ground up
The basement is an important part of the home to look at as many houses have basement insulation in the form of fiberglass batts that are installed between basement ceiling joists. But this insulation does nothing to make your basement more comfortable and energy efficient. The other limitation of fiberglass insulation is that it can’t stop air leakage that causes comfort, energy and moisture problems.

The Greenlink Process to Basement Insulation Installation
Using our 360° holistic approach of building science, we address these areas of this location of the home with this service.
There are several terms in the building science industry to describe the foundational perimeter of a structure. You’ll often hear “rim joist” or “band joist” to describe the area where your exterior basement walls meet the outside. This is a common area for air penetration, which can lead to cold floors and temperatures in the winter and warm temperatures in the summer. Moisture damage and pest infestation can also occur in poorly insulated basements.
We understand that sometimes not everything’s about being hot or cold. Sometimes you just want some peace and quiet, or maybe just a private space for your hobbies. Certain types of insulation are perfect for sound abatement. The joists of basement ceilings are a perfect place to insulate if you’d like to create a sound-resistant environment for your loved ones.
