Crawl Space Insulation Including Encapsulation
Tennesse and Alabama
Keep your home comfortable & energy bills low with the right insulation
Crawl spaces are shallow structures installed directly into the dirt under your home. As such, they tend to soak up the natural cold of the earth around your home and transfer it into the air in your crawl space.
If you have utilities in your crawl space such as your water heater, furnace, or hot water pipes, your energy bills will suffer. The fluctuation in temperature will force your heating and air conditioning systems to work harder, causing your energy costs to rise.
For your crawl space insulation to perform like it should, it's essential to install the right type of insulation, the right amount of insulation, and use the correct installation technique.
Signs of crawl space insulation problems
The floor above the crawl space is unpleasantly cold in wintertime
During cold weather, you have to keep the heat going nearly all the time to be comfortable in rooms directly above the crawl space
Mice or other pests have taken up residence in fiberglass insulation installed between joists in the crawl space
Fiberglass batt insulation has fallen out of place from between floor joists in the crawl space
The crawl space smells moldy, has visible signs of mold, and/or is damp all the time
Many homes have the wrong type of crawl space insulation
The old-fashioned way to insulate a crawl space was to install fiberglass batt insulation between joists and vent the crawl space so outside air could circulate beneath the house. Unfortunately, this combination usually leads to the problems listed above. Fiberglass insulation doesn't respond well to the moist conditions that can be found in a crawl space.
The cotton-like material absorbs moisture, gets soggy, compresses and loses R-value. Fiberglass batts often end up on the crawl space floor in a soggy mess. The main advantage of fiberglass insulation - low cost - is totally negated when the material ceases to perform its main function.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CRAWL SPACE INSULATION FROM A & A INSULATION
