A homeowner's vented crawl space with a dirt floor has been causing problems within the home in Chester, MD.
In the winter, vents let cold air directly into the home. The floor insulation sags away from the sub floor and the cold air gets above it making the insulation useless. In the summer, the vents let in warm air causing high humidity in the crawl space. This can cause condensation, mold, and odors.
Dr. Energy Saver's solution to vented crawl spaces is the CleanSpace Encapsulation System with SilverGlo insulation on the walls. The vents and other air leaks in the crawl space are sealed and it is insulated with SilverGlo insulation. Then, CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation liner is installed along the dirt floor of the crawl space. The results are lower humidity in the crawl space, a more comfortable home and lower utility costs.
