You may not give much thought to insulating your crawl space. But high humidity in soil makes crawl spaces susceptible to moisture and deterioration. The humidity causes the crawl space to become damp and this environment can attract mold, dust and dirt, rodents and insects.
This unhealthy environment in your crawl space directly affects your home and family. Since air flows from the ground upward, the moist air from your crawl space and all the contaminants flow up into your living space.
Benefits of insulating your crawl space:
- Increased comfort – The temperature in your crawl space will be regulated so you will have less drafts and cold spots in the rooms above your crawl space.
- Better air quality – The air you breathe will be cleaner because it will contain less pollutants.
- Energy savings – With proper insulation in your crawl space, your HVAC system will be able to work less to regulate the air in your home.
- Money savings – Because your heating and cooling system will be more efficient, your energy usage will be decreased, saving you money on your monthly bills.
