A poorly maintained crawl space can trap heat and become a home for many unwanted pests. Here’s how insulating your crawl space can solve your problems and make your home more energy efficient.
How Much Insulation Should I Have?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, different levels of insulation are recommended for your home depending on your local climate. These levels are measured in R-values, where a higher R-value means your crawl space will better resist heat transfer.
Most American homes should have insulation between R-13 to R-30 in their crawl space; however, many do not! To determine the correct level of insulation in your home and have it properly installed, always consult a professional.
Crawl space insulation will give you peace of mind that your home is more energy-efficient and able to keep insects out. Insulation with an R-value of R-19 or higher can yield lower energy bills, provide better air quality, and superior sound control for your home.
Insulation that is formaldehyde-free and made with a poly-encapsulation material will keep your insulation free of moisture, meaning that there isn’t a risk of mold developing. Our insulation is made with at least 25% recycled content, which contributes to a lower environmental impact.
