Floor insulation can help significantly reduce your energy costs. A properly insulated floor will keep your rooms more comfortable. It will prevent moisture problems, insect infestation, and radon infiltration.
Why Floor Insulation?
Underfloor insulation will help eliminate drafts in homes that are raised above the ground (those that have a crawlspace or are set on piers). Insulating the floor will prevent drafts from entering via the gap between the floor and the ground.
Also, floor insulation will prevent heat loss. Insulation impedes temperature change, meaning less energy is needed to maintain your chosen temperature. More than 10 percent of an average home’s heat is lost through the floor. This percentage can be much higher in older homes with hardwood floors—or floors made of other materials that conduct heat and cold. By preventing this heat loss with underfloor insulation, homeowners will see an energy bill savings of at least 10 percent.
