As we endure another week of cold weather, you’re probably getting a little too familiar with the air inside of your home. It’s been too cold to open the windows, and your furnace and humidifier are probably battling on a daily basis. This all leads to the constant recirculation of air in your home.
If your crawl space isn’t encapsulated, that means that you’re constantly circulating unconditioned air. Basically, air comes in through tiny gaps in your foundation and moves up through your home. If your crawl space is dirty or moldy? That’s the air you’re breathing upstairs. If you’ve spent a lot of the winter suffering from colds and allergy problems, your crawl space might be to blame.
One way to cut down on dirty air entering your home is to encapsulate your crawl space.
When you encapsulate with CleanSpace, you protect your crawl space from the elements, but you also protect your home from your crawl space. The CleanSpace system completely seals the walls and floor of the crawl space, which means there’s no access point for water, dirt, bugs, or anything else that can seep in. This turns the crawl space into clean, conditioned space.
There are many great reasons to encapsulate your crawl space: it saves energy (and lowers energy bills), it makes your home more comfortable by preventing cold air from coming in and making floors cold, and it can even create clean storage space. But your health trumps all of that.
