Your home has an open space underneath called a crawlspace. Sometimes, it’s just an empty space while in other situations it provides access to home systems. In either case, it’s outside of the home’s thermal boundary and not heated or cooled, so if air gets from the crawl space gets into your home, your air and heating systems will battle to moderate the temperature. Additionally, wasted energy equals higher costs.
A sufficient amount of insulation halts energy waste and reduces the potential for excessive moisture and mold growth. Crawlspace Insulation helps prevent other allergens and irritants that could come into your home through the ventilation system.
Crawlspaces can be ventilated or unventilated. In a ventilated space, heat water lines should be wrapped in insulation to prevent wintertime freezing. A direct-to-floor application using spray foam can work well in a ventilated crawlspace, blocking air flow into the home.
