Crawl Space Insulation Benefits
If your crawl space isn’t adequately insulated, you could be wasting a huge amount of money on home heating.
Whether you live in a home with outdated, worn down insulation in the crawl space, one with a poor insulation installation, or one which predates consistent crawl space insulation, you’ll want to make sure you resolve the problem as soon as possible to save your wallet pain.
Your crawl space, like your walls, needs to be properly insulated to keep your home from wasting a lot of power.
Unlike wall insulation, crawlspace insulation is easily forgotten and ignored—even when you have obvious symptoms of a problem, such as chronic cold floors. In fact, crawl spaces in older homes which predate energy-efficient building practices being codified may have no insulation at all. If you had a wall with no insulation, which felt significantly colder than the rest of your home, you’d solve it immediately—so you want to do the same for your crawl space.
Of course, minimizing wasted heat isn’t the only reason to take care of crawl space insulation.
Adequate management of your crawl spaces also makes your home more consistently comfortable, by raising floor temperatures significantly in the cold months. You’ll also experience reduced wear and tear on your HVAC systems by minimizing outdoor air particulates in your system and controlling moisture.
The exact details of crawl space insulation installation will vary extensively between homes.
Factors such as moisture, the design of your crawl spaces, and your floor type can all factor into whether you want ventilated crawl space insulation, which isolates the crawl space from the home by putting insulation under the floor between the joists, or unventilated crawl space insulation, which insulates foundation walls and seals all vents to create a pocket of temperate air beneath your home.
