Crawl Space Insulation

Crawl spaces are one of the most neglected areas of your home. Many people don’t realize is that their crawl space is vital for insulating the rest of the home. When you come to Air Solutions Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electric, we’ll remove any debris, damaged insulation, or other impediments to a well-insulated crawl space at your home.

Avoid Poorly Insulated Crawl Spaces

Crawl space insulation is something builders tend to forget while constructing a home. And even if they do install insulation, they’ll sometimes install the wrong kind.

Errors such as this can lead to a spot in the house that proves costly to heat and cool. Poorly insulated crawl spaces may also get damp and promote the growth of mold and wood rot. An old solution used to be using fiberglass batts, stuffed between overhead joists in the crawl space. But this method may prove to be more damaging because fiberglass insulation absorbs moisture in your crawl space.

As the fiberglass batts absorb moisture, it starts to lose R-value and falls out of position, causing it to be ineffective.

Common Crawl Space Problems

If your crawl space remains unchecked, it could have one — or all — of the problems below. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, consider getting your crawl space checked out immediately.

  • Sagging Crawl Spaces – A rotting crawl space can mean that mold has already moved in. A sagging floor can also mean that termites have found their way inside your crawl space. Replacing the entire rotting crawl space can be pricey, so try not to let your own crawl space get to this point.
  • Crawl Space Mold – Mold can also make its presence known by damaging the wood component of your crawl space. From there, it can use your HVAC system and ducts to spread mold spores through the air. If you have family members with asthma, you’re definitely going to want to avoid this.
  • Insects, Dead Animals, Odors – A dirty crawl space can become a habitat for ants, snakes, termites, mice, and other animals and insects that are small enough to live and die there. A crawl space infested with mold, dead wood, animal waste, and dead animals can be the source of very unpleasant odors.
  • Flooded Crawl Spaces – When it rains, your crawl space can become flooded and this can lead to additional water problems. Additionally, it’s difficult to sell a home at good value when there’s a wet crawl space.
