HOW CAN I STOP CONDENSATION ON THE BASEMENT WALL BEHIND INSULATION?

First ensure that this is not a leak in the basement wall. (search keyword "waterproof" for the title "HOW DO I WATERPROOF A BASEMENT?")

Second ensure that the wall is well sealed, especially around electrical outlets and floor and wall joints. (search keyword "air barriers" for the title "AIR BARRIERS")

Finally, make sure there is no air spaces left between the insulation and the basement wall. (search keyword "basement" for the title "INSULATION IN THE BASEMENT TO AVOID CONDENSATION")
