Simplifying Energy Efficiency

  • There’s a lot of information online. 
  • It can be very confusing & time consuming to go through it all.
  • When considering sub contractors, ease of build, performance, durability, cost and minimizing human error these are the details that we recommend.

 


How we would do it


Basement

This is how we would insulate the basement.

Why?
The method we have selected in this detail costs more than some other methods, we feel the benefit outweighs the cost, due to the ease of construction and it largely minimizes any moisture issues you could have in a basement as the closed cell foam is a continuous vapour and air barrier.

Air Leakage Control

We recommend contacting a professional in your area or 2Consult can provide detailed drawings.
