As we reach the first day of fall, we are getting ready for colder temperatures and pumpkin space lattes! The fall and winter season is upon us and we need to make sure our home - from top to bottom - is ready for the changes.
The air in your crawl space affects more than you think. It is affecting you and your home. Moisture and humidity are common problems with damp and humid crawl spaces in the south. North Carolina is notorious for crawl space issues. Most homes that have crawl spaces are also housing your heating system and duct lines for heating and cooling year round. Changing temperatures from your HVAC system also can cause sweating and moisture to be produced if the air in the crawl space is constantly changing.
Majority of homes built and still being built have vented crawl spaces. Although this is common for older homes and still being practiced today by builders, science has proofed that a encapsulated crawl space protects your home! Encapsulated crawl spaces help reduce moisture issues, mold and mildew, musty smells, improves air quality in your home, and saves you on your energy bills!
Save energy and protect your investments - your family and home!
