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.
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.
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.
