Preparing your Crawl Space for Cooler Weather
Crawl spaces are typically uninsulated and unsealed spaces that tend to soak up the natural cold of the earth around your home. Regardless of whether the floor above your crawlspace is insulated and the condition of your insulation, there is air movement between your crawlspace and home. It is driven by the “stack effect”. Warm air in the upper level or attic of your home rises and is expelled through windows, vents, cracks, and gaps. As it rises, air from lower levels of your home rush in to fill the vacuum.
For homeowners with ductwork, pipes or other utilities in the crawl space, energy efficiency problems will be worsened. Woods Basement Systems offers moisture and mold resistant crawl space insulation materials that are designed to eliminate energy loss and help create a more comfortable home.
