This is a question that homeowners often face. Do basement walls need insulation? Because insulation resolves so many problems particular to basements, the answer should be a resounding “Yes!” And the best products for the job are InSoFast insulation panels.
Household problems corrected or avoided by using InSoFast insulation panels include:
Choosing the Best Insulation Panels for Your Basement
All walls, but particularly those in basements, experience heat loss at areas where the studs lie. Traditional insulation can settle and, even when gaps are sealed, the material that serves as the stud often conducts heat outward while trouble spots arise within the coverage that should be supplied by the settled insulation.
Preventing the heat loss at the stud’s location is one of the hallmarks of the InSoFast panel design. Recessed within the insulation, the non-ferrous stud material is positioned so that conductive actions can’t occur, preventing a loss in the insulation power of the panel. The tongue and groove connections also keep these gaps from existing, meaning that more heat is retained, and the InSoFast panel, with an R-value of 10, outperforms other options with supposed R-values of 15 or more.
The key features of the ingenious design of InSoFast EPS foam panels includes:
The InSoFast UX 2.0 Panel has a thickness of 2” and a flat surface with ridged studs for wall attachment. The R-value of 8.5 is continuous and performs better than R-13 batt walls. For meeting minimum standard codes, this unit performs well and is very affordable.
The InSoFast EXi 2.5 Panel has a thickness of 2.5” and an R-Value of 10 that performs better than R-15 batt walls. All of these panels interlock tightly and have recessed, embedded studs to keep thermal loss at a minimum. The design also allows the panel to bridge common irregularities seen within basement walls.
Yes, your basement walls need insulation, and the answer to the next question: “What kind?” is InSoFast insulation panels. They offer an affordable, convenient, and ingenuous solution to your insulation demands.
