- One of the main and most effective weatherizing steps is to seal off cold outside air from entering your crawl space. Cold outside air that enters your crawl space can cause pipes to freeze and increases your heating costs. Crawl Pros can help in this regard with our crawl space encapsulation system. Encapsulation prevents cold outside air from coming in your crawl space. It helps you same money on heating costs and and protects your crawl space from such problems as mold growth, wood rot and other moisture related problems.
- Another winterization tip is to ensure you have the proper crawl space insulation. Many Northwest crawl spaces are insulated with fiberglass insulation on the foundation walls. In some cases if the insulation has been exposed to water it can can act like a sponge and absorb and hold water that can lead to mold growth. The Crawl Pros team are experts and crawl space insulation and can analyze your current insulation installation then offer the best solution to help prevent problems and save you money on energy costs.

- Installing crawl space vapor barriers is another way to save on heating cost. A proper vapor barrier installation can help preventing basement moisture.
