Benefits of Crawlspace Encapsulation

Benefits of Crawlspace Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation refers to adding a moisture-resistive barrier to the floor of your crawl space, sealed foundation vents, insulated walls, and a crawl space dehumidifier. Crawl space encapsulation is most effective when you completely seal the space.

  1. Energy Efficient: Crawl Space Encapsulation can lower energy bills by 20% according to advance energy. When the moisture in your crawlspace is controlled, the air conditioner will work less which in turn saves energy.

  2. Healthy Air Quality: Up to 50% of air flows up into your home from your crawlspace. Encapsulation will help keep the air clean and the space dry.

  3. Avoids Pests & Wood destroying insects: Encapsulation creates a space free of termites and pests. Laying down a vapor barrier will help with moisture issues as well as taping the seams which allows for full sealing, avoiding any cracks for pests to enter.

  4. Prevents Mold Growth: Crawl Space Encapsulation consists of mold cleaning and controlling the moisture. It will also get rid of the musty odor in your crawlspace.

  5. Keeps your Structure Healthy & Strong: Encapsulation is designed to keep the soil of the structure dry which can prevent extensive and expensive structural issues later down the road.

  6. Increases Value in your home: When selling your home, having an encapsulated crawl space will raise the value of your home. This will be a great investment that will pay off later.
