How to insulate laundry room


Hi all,

Trying to see the best and most cost efficient way to insulate this laundry room. The basement besides this is fully insulated (and finished) but this room gets cold. I’ve taken some pictures and described the direction and what they are looking at, and I am just tempted to find any and all gaps and holes (leading to other areas of the basement - near subfloor) and stuff insulation in. What about the back wall which is the cement foundation? Thanks for any and all help.

Re: How to insulate laundry room


The best way is spray foam.

It fills all the cracks, and seals any air leaks.

But the cost is not great.

A professional can do a better job than a DIY kit from HD, but if you must attempt it be careful not to overspray anything important.

I just noticed that dryer vent is improper.
