Last winter I insulated my basement ceiling. Now the air
quality in the basement seems worse off, it's more stuffy and damp.
The install was subsidized by the utility company.
I'm no wondering if it was really good idea. They required
that a vapor barrier be laid down in the crawl space floor, so it
seem like having the basement ceiling insulated is worse for
I have a small fan venting to the outside, and plan to setup a
de-humidifier, and possibly install another fan venting to outside.
Am on the fence though about whether not to remove the ceiling insulation.
Thanks for any insights that would help.
Covering exposed basement insulation...Tyvek maybe?!?
