Properly Insulating Your Crawlspace

When it comes to your crawlspace, you may never have thought whether its current set-up is  serving you best. Have you thought about what your options are and what changes you could do to the crawlspace to help improve your home’s overall performance?

If you live in an older home, your crawlspace may be vented and uninsulated. The dampness of bare ground, along with moisture seeping through permeable concrete, can make for a hotbed breeding ground for mold and mildew. If mold or mildew finds its way into your home, all kinds of problems can develop.

When you choose to insulate your crawlspace with spray foam insulation like Icynene, you are taking a step toward controlling moisture buildup in your home. A dry, air sealed environment for your plumbing, HVAC unit and other mechanical units will help with a host of other problems.

Overall air quality is an important factor that insulating your crawlspace with spray foam insulation can help to improve. When moisture is locked out of this area, there is little or no opportunity for mold and mildew to develop, which might then be spread through the home via your heating and cooling systems.

Deciding to upgrade the insulation in your crawlspace to foam insulation will also help to lighten the load that your heating and cooling systems take in controlling the temperature in your home.
