Subfloor insulation is one of the most overlooked areas for new and renovated homes. Without subfloor insulation, it can make you home uncomfortable to live in due to the cold and draughts that come in.
The floor structures of many new homes and extensions consist of a suspended floor with subfloor space beneath it. This is commonly seen in double story homes, as the ceiling of the lower level becomes the flooring for the upper level. The subflooring provides a continuous structural surface over the floor joists, making it stronger and more secure.
If you do not insulate beneath the floorboards, for example, you will find that the temperature control of the house is lost due to heat loss via air leakages. This is when heat escapes through uninsulated areas and through cracks or gaps in the exterior of the building.
While carpets and rugs may provide some thermal comfort and protection from the outside cold in winter, having subfloor insulation will reduce the need for central heating, thus saving you money in the long run.
