Cold Air Outside Could Mean Cold Floors Inside
Winter is in full swing and while we are not covered in snow, it has brought cooler temperatures. Drops in the temperature outside mean drops in the temperature inside your basement or crawl space too. Due to the stack effect, the air outside the home makes its way inside. Have you noticed cooler floors or areas in the home feeling chilly even though you keep turning the heat up? The stack effect and your basement or crawl space are to blame.
You need insulation to combat this and keep your home warm this winter, you need insulation. Not just any insulation, however, you need the right insulation. The traditional fluffy pink, fiberglass insulation is often used in all areas of the home, but it is a poor choice for areas that are prone to high moisture like your basement or crawl space. This type of insulation absorbs moisture making it less effective in insulating the home as well as allowing mold to grow.
