When you are in the business, you sometimes fail to recognize that we throw around terms, which you as a homeowner, might not fully understand. Crawlspace encapsulation is one of those things. What is it and why do I need it?

For those of you who have crawlspaces under their house, about 40% of the air in your house comes directly from your crawlspace. That means during the summer, you get that hot, moist air and in the winter, you get dry, cold air. Moreover, if your crawlspace has mold or any other type of “foreign” things in it, then you might be breathing that as well. Moreover, think about your heating/cooling system. It has to work harder to heat or cool that air. According to many energy experts, a homeowner can save up to 18% on these costs just by conditioning the air in the crawlspace.

Crawlspace encapsulation has three main features. One, it treats or conditions the air in the crawlspace to make your heating/cooling costs go down. Second, encapsulation usually includes a sump pump to help eliminate any standing /pooling water in that space. Thirdly, we install a commercial type of dehumidifier to further “condition” that air in the crawlspace.  In closing, crawlspace encapsulation is good for the wallet and your health.
