Subflooring and crawl spaces should be insulated, as well as floors over garages. Heat enters and escapes buildings through the flooring, so installing insulation is extremely important. Make sure your floors are well insulated so you can maximize energy savings and year-round comfort. Well-insulated floors can help:
Broken Drum Insulation of Bakersfield offers various types of insulation for floors, crawl spaces (and other areas), including cellulose and blown-in and batt fiberglass.
What about the best insulation for floor joists? Generally, batts and rolls are ideal. According to Insulation Institute, unfaced R-25 or R-19 batt insulation is cut small enough to fit snugly between the floor joists against sills and band (rim) joists.
Other floor insulation options include rigid foam (generally used in new construction), loose-fill cellulose or fiberglass (unfinished floors) and spray foam (unfinished attic floors). Learn more »
For optimal energy efficiency, the U.S. Energy Department reports you should insulate:
Floors above cold spaces—like vented crawl spaces and unheated garages—should be insulated, but underfloor insulation is important as well. This will help ensure maximum energy efficiency for your home. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it’s ideal to insulate slab floors built directly on the ground and, as an alternative to floor insulation, foundation walls of unvented crawl spaces.
Most slab insulation is done during home construction, and foam board is typically used. Foam-in-place insulation can also be blown under floors to help insulate and reduce air leakage.
