Are you getting ready to insulate or re-insulate your home? Don’t ignore the lowest levels, like the crawl space, if you have one. If your home has a crawl space that isn’t insulated, it’s not as energy-efficient as it could be, and as a result, you could be losing a lot of money!
If you live in West Palm Beach or a surrounding area in South Florida and need crawl space insulation, the home insulators at Installed Building Products of West Palm have you covered. We have a lot of experiencing installing insulation and can recommend the right solution for you.
Why Insulate Your Florida Crawl Space?
If your home has a crawl space, it needs to be insulated, as well as properly weatherized and sealed. Otherwise, you’ll end up dealing with issues like moisture control problems and soil vapor intrusion (which can decrease indoor air quality). Crawl spaces are a big source of energy loss in homes – a lot of air leaks in through your crawl space. Crawl space insulation and sealing is optimal because insulation isn’t as effective if there are air leaks. A crawl space that is insulated but not sealed won’t do a whole lot in terms of maximizing the energy efficiency of your home!
Insulating crawl spaces can help:
- Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home
- Make your home a more comfortable space
- Improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and furnace
- Contribute to a healthier environment
Crawl Space Insulation Materials
Typically IBP of West Palm installs the following insulation materials in crawl spaces :
Ventilated vs. Unventilated Crawl Spaces
Is your crawl space ventilated or unventilated? You should find out before insulating – and if you aren’t sure, our insulation contractors will be able to tell you. Ventilated crawl spaces should be insulated under the subflooring material and between the floor joists. When it comes to insulating crawl spaces that are unventilated, wall insulation is important. For these types of crawl spaces, you don’t need to worry about sealing.
For such a small area, a crawl space can have a big huge impact on your home’s energy efficiency if not properly insulated. No matter what type of crawl space you have and what material you use, you’ll notice the difference crawl space insulation can make.
