Crawl Space Encapsulation and Crawl Space Vapor Barrier System Installation in Salisbury, NC
Many residents in Salisbury do not realize the majority of the air for their HVAC system comes up through their crawl space. That means HVAC systems are drawing warm air to cool during the summer and cold air to heat during the winter. The resulting overworking of the HVAC system leads to higher energy consumption and an overworked system. However, once proper crawl space insulation is installed, heating and cooling bills will drop significantly letting the system pay for itself over time. Crawl space encapsulation will also prevent the growth of mold that can overtake your homes support system and compromise structural integrity. Additionally, proper crawl space encapsulation will prevent mold spores that get into your home and HVAC system and causing a host of health problems.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
In addition, to crawl space insulation, the final piece of the puzzle is crawl space sealing by means of crawl space encapsulation. A crawl space vapor barrier system can keep moisture out of the area. This will prevent the growth of mold, which can cause structural damage.
Crawl Space Dehumidifier
Your Salisbury crawl space mostly likely has an exposed earthen floor. Without crawl space encapsulation, naturally occurring moisture will evaporate through your crawl space and your home or building’s sub-structure. Through rainwater, improper grading or natural seepage, this moisture will eventually lead to interior and exterior issues such as:
- Wood rot of supports and subfloor
- Cupping – the edges of a board are higher than its center
- Mold growth on wood or insulation
- Ideal termite infestation environment
- Moisture and condensation buildup on ducts, piping, and other crawlspace structures
