Greenville Crawl Space Winterization Services
Does your home feel unreasonably cold or drafty? Do you have a crawl space that you rarely pay attention to because of its unpleasant odors and damp, dirty conditions? An uninsulated crawl space may be the root cause of these issues. Your HVAC system will thank you for winterizing your crawl space—and so will your wallet. An unwinterized crawl space will make your heating and cooling system work harder than it should have to. Keep your home comfortable and energy efficient by relying on our Greenville crawl space winterization team this season.
Cold Air & Faulty Crawl Space Insulation
Schedule an appointment with us today and our team of crawl space repair professionals will examine the area for any issues that are allowing cold and moisture into the area. Fiberglass insulation isn’t the ideal solution for a crawl space ceiling, so we will address this issue if it’s found. Pipes and floors are left vulnerable when fiberglass insulation is used on the crawl space ceiling. We’ll also look at your ductwork to ensure it’s properly insulated. Your HVAC system’s efficiency is reduced by 40% when ductwork is exposed to temperature swings. Our Greenville experts know crawl space best practices.
Sealing Your Crawl Space
Crawl space sealing begins with insulating the rim joists and creating an air seal. This creates a barrier against the cold by sealing the gaps around the edge of the foundation. SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation is used to provide a moisture-resistant, R-value layer in the crawl space. After the area is insulated, the floor is sealed and insulated as well with TerraBlock™ foam insulation. The floor is then covered by our CleanSpace® moisture barrier.
