Insulating Raised Floors

Insulating raised floors can provide heat transfer protection to pipes as well as heating and cooling ducts. In vented crawlspaces it is often more cost-effective to insulate between the floor joists than it is to insulate the foundation walls. If the choice has been made to insulate between the floor joists in the crawlspace, the process can be pretty quick and easy, but care must be taken to make sure the insulation is secured properly and the venting strategy of the zone is respected.

In this lesson, you will learn the relative importance of insulating raised floors, how to choose the best materials to use and how to insulate raised floors as well as comprehend the importance of proper air sealing and vapor barriers prior to installation
