Increase Energy Efficiency by Adding Crawl Space Insulation
You might not think about your crawl space very often, much less crawl space insulation, but that small space under your home can lead to issues far beyond its size. Crawl spaces under homes are ideal harbors for dampness, mold and pests. The humid soil surrounding the crawl space contributes to the space becoming damp, which then makes it a prime location for mold and pests.
Think this damp space is isolated and doesn’t affect the interior of your home? Think again. The natural airflow of a home is from bottom to top (ground to sky). As your home naturally breathes, the moist air (and everything in it) flows up and into the living areas of the home.
Taking the time to properly insulate and air seal your home’s crawl space will help cut down on these issues down the line and save you energy on your very next bill. Our skilled insulation team at Southland Insulators has the experience to help you determine the best method for insulating and air sealing your crawl space, helping make you and your family more comfortable in your home.
