Crawl space? Musty? Wet?

Published May 14th, 2021 by Energy Plus Home Improvements

Air in your home flows from the bottom to the top. Based on the principal that warm air rises and cool air falls, as the air in your home is heated, it moves up though your house. Once the air makes it way up to the roof, it will normally be vented out though the soffits or ridge vent. So where does all this air come from? Surprisingly the majority is not from windows and doors but instead from your crawl space!

Moisture in your crawl space can lead to:

Higher humidity in your living spaces.

Health issues related to mold and mildew spores throughout your home.

Damp and musty odors in your home.

Higher heating and cooling costs.

Rodent and insect infestations.

Increased allergic reactions.

Condensation on foundation walls and air conditioning duct work.

Warped hardwood floors.

Cold tile and flooring above the crawl space.

With a encapsulation system you will not only stop crawl space leaks, and control moisture but also gain back a little peace of mind. If interested in our services contact us we would love to hear from you!
