Crawl space insulation is often overlooked as people don’t often think about it, but crawl spaces are open to the outside weather, and cold can easily seep into the house through the floor. Proper insulation will help keep you warmer, and your utility bills lower.
#2: Preventing Long-Term Damage
Not only is crawl space insulation important to keep you warm, but it is also important to keep your pipes from freezing. Pipes which burst can cost hundreds of dollars to repair. Proper insulation also protects your floor from moisture which causes mildew, fungi, mold, and wood rot.
#3: Reclaim a Room
Crawl spaces are typically filled with dirt, and that means that there are all sorts of pollutants, such as dust, allergens, and rodents, which can seep into your home. An insulted crawl space will keep your air quality at home cleaner.
