The Importance of a Conditioned Crawlspace
If you're like most homeowners, one of the last places you want to venture is your crawlspace. This is especially true if it is unsealed and unconditioned. Because it usually does not have a cement foundation and it is humid, it is the perfect place for mold, insects, and rodents to thrive. In addition, an unconditioned crawlspace introduces a significant amount of moisture to the house above.
How We Condition Crawlspaces
After removing rocks and debris from the floor, we repair any cracks, holes, or other crawlspace damage. We then install a durable water vapor barrier and close off all vents. In addition, we seal the sides of the crawlspace to ensure there are no water or moisture leaks. Finally, we install a vent for air conditioning and heat as well as an exhaust fan if needed. Doing so ensures a consistent temperature that is similar to your living areas.
