Owners of homes with crawl spaces in Monroe, Washington, may not be aware of how much that space under their home contributes to their comfort. Your crawl space, the hollow area between the ground and the first floor of your home, generally has a dirt floor and holds items like your home’s ductwork, plumbing, and electrical wiring. For the integrity and efficiency of your home, it’s vital that this area has adequate insulation.
Why You Should Insulate Your Home’s Crawl Space
Even though most homeowners don’t give much thought to their crawl space, if left uninsulated or unsealed, these areas bring outdoor air into the home. This can impact the home’s temperature as well as its air quality.
If your home’s floors are consistently cold when the temperatures outside drop, you probably need to take a look at the insulation in your crawl space. Another sign that you have poor insulation or none at all, is if you have musty odors in your home or people in your home have unexplained health issues.
The good news is that crawl space insulation will make your home more energy-efficient. In fact, you could save on your energy bills just by adding the right insulation under your floor. And paying some attention to your crawl space can help you avoid some other serious issues like water and pest intrusion, and mold and mildew.
