The Importance Of Crawl Space Encapsulation
Homeowners seal their houses to prevent heat loss and maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Spray foam insulation excels in this aspect, providing an air-tight seal that other insulation types struggle to match.
The primary purpose of a crawl space is to promote air circulation through the home and allow easy access to plumbing, electrical, and similar maintenance, repair, and installation appliances.
Houses built over a crawl space often suffer from moisture-related issues due to the crawl space’s surroundings. Naturally, when moisture mixes with wood, it creates all sorts of problems that come with it, often leading to a house’s deterioration.
Excess indoor moisture contributes to many problems, such as mold, mildew, wood rot, termite infestation, floor failure, increased energy bills, odors, insects, dust mites, allergies, and poor indoor air quality. Excess moisture in a crawl space causes the crawl space to become an actual breeding ground for mice, rats, snakes, and other wildlife and pests that can thrive in this damp, dark habitat.
Some of the issues you’ll deal with in a crawl space are obvious, like your air-conditioning or heating unit’s malfunction problems that you’ll often observe in your house. In the summer, you can find it very difficult to cool the house because the humidity is very high in the crawl space; it flows through the house, making it difficult for your HVAC unit to function correctly. In the winter, the floor is too cold, and your tile or even hardwood floors are frigid. Even though the humidity is lower in the winter, you will still have efficiency issues if the crawl space is not sealed and insulated correctly.
The best solution to avoid indoor moisture issues is crawl space encapsulation since this barrier and dehumidifier combination protects the crawl space from excess moisture and related problems.
