There are several important benefits to insulating crawl spaces.
- For one, many modern day homes and buildings run vital piping through their crawl space. These pipes are often susceptible to bursting under extreme temperature change, resulting in serious damage. For this purpose and several others, many building owners choose to protect their investment by thoroughly insulating crawl space areas.
- Insulated crawlspaces are dryer and less susceptible to leakage and condensation. Keeping moisture out of your crawl space makes it less likely to attract insect colonies, mold, and rodents.
- Crawl spaces can be major sources of home energy loss, whether or not your ventilation system routs through the crawl space area. Properly insulating crawl space walls locks in hot or cold air, keeping your home more comfortable in the summer or winter months.
- Insulating crawl spaces also warms up the floor directly above, so your feet won’t feel as cold walking across your tile or linoleum in the morning.
Crawl space insulation is one of the most common types of home and building insulation improvement and preparation is fairly straight forward. First, your crawl space will need to be thoroughly inspected for insects or bugs as well as mold or moisture build up. These problems must be addressed before laying insulation, as they can cause damage to your insulation down the road.
Professional insulation goes very quickly and you can usually expect the project to be completed in one or two visits at most. As always, be aware that fiberglass insulation should never be handled without the use of safety goggles and a dust mask.
