insulation


does ceilings, pipes and heat duct work between floors need insulation when finishing a basement ceiling with drywall?

I've never done it unless the customer requests sound proof insulation

insulation


There are gains to be had from sealing/insulating ductwork and water supply lines, but general insulating of a basement ceiling won't do much other than offer sound transmission benefit as mentioned above.
