Basement ceiling insulation is one of the simplest additions you can make to increase energy efficiency and make the temperature more comfortable. But, unlike insulation in walls, a basement ceiling is often lined with pipes, wires and interconnected beams that will make insulating a ceiling a trickier. Insulation will have to be weaved around and behind the various pipes and wires, and then stapled into place.
It is important to note that most experts agree ceiling insulation is only a consideration when a basement will remain unfinished. If the basement will be a finished living space, then wall insulation will provide sufficient coverage.
