An under-insulated crawlspace can be a significant source of home energy loss. The best crawl space insulation for your home depends on if your crawlspace is conditioned (heated or cooled by a furnace or air conditioner) or unconditioned.
In a vented or unconditioned crawlspace, only the floor is insulated. In a heated crawl with uninsulated pipes or ducts, the walls need to be insulated and a polyethylene vapor retarder installed across the entire floor space of the crawl.
Handyman on Call can guide you through the many problems associated with crawlspaces. Our Free Inspection will involve a thorough examination of your crawl space inside and out. We will explain the causes of your crawl space problems, what can be done to correct them permanently and provide you with a written estimate. Our goal is to solve your specific problem in the most cost-effective, non intrusive way possible. Mold is one of the most common problems found in crawl spaces. The most likely source of mold and odors is damp crawlspace air. Mold can be found growing on floor joist, exposed sub-flooring and many times on debris that is left in the crawlspace.
Crawl spaces that are not properly insulated are prone to water damage from moisture from the ground under your house. This can cause inconvenient and potentially costly problems. If your crawl space is ventilated, it can be hard to keep warm in the winter. And during the summer it can be difficult to dehumidify which can result in higher levels of moisture. The professionals at Handyman On Call can insulate the subfloor and between the floor joists.
