The basement of your home is often the coldest room. Finding answers to how you can make your basement warmer is as easy as finding quality, convenient insulation products.
InSoFast insulation wall panels provide a closed-cell, injection-molded EPS foam panel that will meet your requirements of convenient application, strong insulating power, and affordability.
Although it’s a common choice that’s both affordable and accessible, fiberglass insulation would not be the right choice for making your basement warmer. The process is complex, beyond the skills of the average DIYer, and the fiberglass would not perform well in the typical basement environment.
Another option might be to apply spray foam on the concrete of your basement walls to manufacture a vapor barrier. However, this option is messy, expensive, and a lengthy process.
For the most affordable, easily self-installed and best-looking insulation option, InSoFast insulation panels are ideal for insulating your basement. They are composed of closed-cell, injection-molded, Expanded Polystyrene foam, a non-toxic, insulation that maintains its R-value, does not off gas or absorb moisture, and serves as a Class III vapor retardant.
InSoFast insulation provides continuous insulation via 24×48 inch interlocking panels of various thicknesses. The base panel is the UX 2.0 panel, which is 2-inches thick with exposed faces of embedded studs. The insulation has an R-value of 8.5. These panels also offer drainage channels, electrical raceways, rot-resistant framing, and a stackable design. They are ideal for meeting present and future base code expectations.
For a higher resistance to energy loss, or R-value, the EXi 2.5 panel is a superior option. The panels have a depth of 2.5 inches, tightly connect to one another, and include recessed studs to keep the continuous insulation straight and true. The R-value of 10 is superior to traditional batt walls with an R-15 insulation power, providing a 20% increase in insulation strength when compared against the UX 2.0 panel.
The only tools you’ll need are a saw, a utility knife, Loctite PL Premium 3X Stronger Construction Adhesive, and a can of spray foam insulation for seams and edges.
