Floorboard Gaps: Filling and Reducing Drafts

The wide pine floorboards in my 200 yr old house are separating in places, for reasons unknown. The space between some of them is open to the cellar,and tends to be drafty and cold. Can I insulate the cellar ceiling with fiberglass rolls or something? It has been suggested to fill the gaps with something, but who knows what? What would be the best thing to do??

A couple things.

One, yes you can and should insulate the floor. The only exception to this is if you need the heat down there for plumbing, and heat down through the floor is the only source to prevent those pipes from freezing.

Usually you can insulate around the pipes to keep them inside the insulation, towards to warm floor. If you need to keep it warm down there, then maybe you should insulate the basement walls.

The insulation you would use is fiberglass. Comes in rolls and just pushes up into the space between the floor joists. Since your house is old, it probably will not have nice evenly spaced 16 inch on center joists. You can use Fishing line or small gauge wire to old the insulation up, strung across the joists, stapled to each, to support the insulation.

The pine boards shrunk as they dried out. If I am correct, the gaps are larger in the winter (when the relative humidity is low) and close up some in the summer. If you fill the gaps in the winter, the boards may tend to cup and buckle come summer. (Pine especially wide boards, will shrink and swell significantly with the seasons)

Filling Hardwood Floor Gaps
