Economic Assessment of Residential Basement System Insulation Options
This study updates a 1999 economic assessment of residential basement systems in order to better reflect the rising costs of basement construction and space-heating energy. To analyze the various basement insulation options, this study examined capital costs of basement systems and improvements, builder carrying costs and profit margins, and energy prices and forecasts. Computer simulations were also performed to determine the energy performance of three basement classes in five Canadian cities.
