If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t spend a lot of time looking in the crawl spaces of your home.  Although these areas are often neglected, it’s still important that you take the time to insulate these parts of your home.  Here are just a few of the reasons why it’s so important to insulate the crawl spaces in your home.

 

Benefits of Insulating Crawl Spaces:

  • Comfort – Although you don’t spend time accessing your crawl spaces on a regular bases, insulating this part of your home often makes the rooms above your crawl space feel more comfortable!  Insulated crawl spaces lead to fewer drafts and the temperature is better regulated.
  • Air Quality – Spring allergies are in full force.  By insulating the crawl spaces in your home you can keep dust, dirt, moisture, and pollen out of your home.  Insulation helps protect your walls and keeps the air that you breathe cleaner.
  • Energy – Gaps in your home insulation lead to energy loss.  By insulating your crawl spaces, your home does a better job of regulating energy.  This keeps your HVAC system from overworking.
  • Money – Since your air conditioning system isn’t working as hard to keep your home cool, you’ll save money on your energy bill!
