How Crawl Space Encapsulation Can Help Keep Your Home Warm This Winter
The crawl space of your home is a vital part of the entire structure. It is part of a system that keeps your home sound and healthy. Your crawl space is the gap between the ground and your home. It is also essential to protect and maintain it. If your crawl space encapsulation begins to rot, grow mold, or weaken, these issues could cause problems for every part of your home.
How Crawlspaces Affect the Warmth of Your Home
Your crawl space also provides an important thermal function, maintaining the space between the ground and your home. A well-insulated crawl space will provide a warm and dry space above, helping to keep your home warm and dry.
When the crawlspace is moist in cold your house will know it. The structure of your home can freeze due to the moisture and the cold air. When this happens your house has a much harder time staying warm.
Research from the US Department of Energy has shown that closed crawl spaces with proper insulation have better energy and moisture performance than crawl spaces without any kind of insulation.
Crawl space encapsulation
Crawl Space Encapsulation is the process of sealing your crawl space in a plastic vapor barrier. The main purpose of encapsulation is to create a thermal barrier within your crawl space to insulate against humidity and heat loss. Encapsulation also helps in preventing pests.
Proper encapsulation can also provide energy savings for your home, keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Crawl space encapsulation has become one of the most popular home improvements in recent years because of the energy-saving benefits.
