For houses without basements, the crawlspace takes its place as a top priority area for weatherization. Crawlspaces often have issues with moisture, which down the road leads to mold and wood rotting problems. Furthermore, this moisture can find its way into the house, causing indoor air quality problems as well as raising cooling and heating bills. HVAC ductwork is often located in the crawlspace, and can further add to air quality problems if its leaky, which will suck the dust and damp air from the crawlspace into the HVAC unit, and into your home.
How we fix your problem
The pictures at the top and bottom show a crawlspace before and after it has undergone EDGE weatherization treatment. Our trained weatherization specialists will lay down a vapor barrier on the floor of your crawlspace, which will put an end to the moisture issues. Any penetrations up to the living space are air-sealed using spray-foam, and insulation is properly installed (or re-installed) on the above floor. If any HVAC ductwork is present, we will properly seal and insulate it. Depending on the configuration, we will also decide whether to keep it vented or close off the vents, and install insulation on the walls. Immediately, you will see your moisture problems cease, your comfort increasing, and your heating and cooling bills begin to shrink.
