While you might not give a lot of thought to what’s going on below your home, crawl space insulation is important. Whether your Redmond home has never had adequate crawl space insulation or you find that what is there has been damaged by mold, water, or critters, it’s a good idea to make this a priority.
Here is why the insulation in your crawl space matters and how Crawl Pros approaches safe, effective, and sustainable insulation in this space.
Why You Need Effective Crawl Space Insulation
Crawl spaces are musty, dark, and often moist places — especially in Redmond and the rest of Greater Seattle. Because they are under your home, they are a natural breeding ground for unpleasant things. These include moisture, mold, rodents, and dust.
While it might be tempting to pack up and move to a home that doesn’t have a crawl space, that isn’t necessary. When you properly install insulation in your crawl space, you get the following benefits:
- Improved air quality – When dust, mold, and rodent contaminants get into your home, it can cause health issues. Insulation and air sealing means you’ll be breathing better and cleaner air.
- Save energy – When you don’t have adequate insulation, your HVAC system is forced to work much harder to regulate the air in your home. Proper insulation fixes this.
- Improved comfort – In addition to the saved energy, you’ll generally be more comfortable in the home. When one room is warmer or mustier than another, the crawl space is often the culprit.
- Save money – Sure, you’ll need to pay a little bit upfront to insulate your crawl space, but there are cost savings involved as well. You will save money on energy bills, won’t have to worry about mold issues, and can cut down on the calls to the pest control companies.
