Crawlspace Encapsulation

Symptoms of Crawlspace Problems

If you are like most homeowners, you probably never visit your crawlspace. It’s dark, dank, and there might even be some unwanted critters or pests living there! But it is necessary to take a peek at your crawlspace from time to time to identify potential problems before they escalate. There are, however, signs that may indicate an issue with your crawlspace.

Home interior signs include:
  • Uneven flooring
  • Cracks in the walls
  • Foul odor in your home
  • Condensation around your air registers
  • Increased energy bills
  • High humidity inside your home
  • Chronic allergies, asthma that worsen while at home
If you are up for the challenge, look at your crawlspace for the following issues that may indicate problems:
  • Mold or moisture damage
  • Condensation on your plumbing
  • Wet or soggy insulation
  • Water puddles on the ground
  • Rotten or damaged wood
  • Evidence of insects or pests
  • Hanging or fallen insulation

When to get crawlspace encapsulation

If any of the following apply to your home, you may benefit from a crawlspace encapsulation system installed by the professionals at Energy Savers.
  • Crawlspace Vents and Dirt Floor – Vented, dirt-floor crawlspaces are allowable by building codes, although they often are known to cause moisture and mold problems. If your crawlspace only meets codes, yet you still have moisture issues, an encapsulation system may be right for your home.
  • Allergies or Asthma – Damp crawlspace air seeps into your home and could exacerbate allergies or asthma due to airborne mold spores and dust mites. Crawlspace encapsulation ensures that the air from under your house is clean and safe to breathe.
  • Fiberglass Insulation in Crawlspace – Fiberglass insulation is not the right choice to insulate a crawlspace. It absorbs moisture, causes mold growth, leads to wood rot, falls down, and loses R-value. However, crawlspace encapsulation not only provides a moisture barrier, but helps insulate as well.

The Solution

Crawlspace encapsulation is ideal if you want to seal out moisture and turn a damp, dirty, moist crawlspace into a clean, dry space that inhibits mold growth. Energy Savers has pioneered crawlspace encapsulation for homeowners in the Tri-Cities, preserving your asset instead of it turning into a liability!
