The Benefits of Crawlspace Encapsulation

If you could lower your heating and cooling costs, improve your home’s air quality, and reduce the number of spiders and other pests in your home by installing one affordable system – would you? Those are just three benefits of professional crawlspace encapsulation – but there are more!

What is crawlspace encapsulation?

Crawlspace encapsulation describes applying a multi-layer seamless material directly on the crawl space’s dirt floor and the foundation walls. Are you intrigued? There are many benefits of professional crawlspace encapsulation.

Benefits of Crawlspace Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation is a great choice for Missouri or Kansas residents who want to combat high humidity in their homes. The excess moisture may be caused by drainage issues or water in the soil, foundation walls, or the outside air. Reducing moisture in your home is the most significant benefit of crawlspace encapsulation because humidity can affect the structural integrity of your home and cause many other problems. 

Here are some added benefits of crawlspace encapsulation.

Lowers heating and cooling costs 

A less humid house means that your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard during the summer. After all – reducing humidity is the AC’s primary function. 

But crawlspace encapsulation can also lower your heating costs because your home will be better sealed against drafts. In addition, the floors on the first level of your house will feel warmer.

Extends the life of your HVAC equipment

Have you recently priced new furnaces and air conditioning units? (Yikes!) Extend the life of these essential home systems by hiring a professional to complete crawlspace encapsulation. 

Decreases mold growth

The dark, damp environment under your home is perfect for mold growth. Reducing the moisture from under your house means that mold will be less likely to take hold.

Reduces the number of pests

Crawl space encapsulation can shield your home from pests by adding a protective layer against the creepy crawlies living under your home. Reduce the likelihood of termites harming your structure by adding this seamless barrier. You’ll also notice fewer insects, spiders, and rodents inside!

Improves your home’s air quality

If you are concerned about your home’s air quality (and you should be!), you can improve it by completing a professional crawlspace encapsulation project. In addition to breathing healthier air, you will also reduce your use of home deodorizers, which aren’t good for us or the environment. 

Improved storage space

Homeowners are delightfully surprised when they realize they can use their encapsulated crawlspace for extra storage. Move bulky items from your garage to under your home!
