Basement Band Boards

Basement Band Boards An uninsulated band joist can account for a significant portion of a home's heat loss, as the only thing separating inside from outside is two inches of wood and the siding material covering it. If the basement is heated, or contains heating or water heating equipment, the loss through an uninsulated band joist is even greater. In most cases, the cost of insulating a band joist is minimal. The primary factors affecting the potential savings are the average temperature in the basement and typical winter outdoor temperatures. The greater the difference between warm basement temperatures and cold outdoor temperatures, the greater the heat loss through the band joist, and the greater the potential savings. Insulating band joist areas with spray foam insulation will pay for itself within a few years or less.
